IT’S ALWAYS A GOOD SIGN WHEN YOU take your eyes off the road for a moment, look down at your own bike and say aloud to yourself, “This is a great motorcycle.” Especially if you do it three or four times during a 500-mile ride, on a bike you have owned for the better part of a decade.

FRONT-TIRE LOAD CAPACITY IS A CENtral problem of the motorcycle. To steer quickly and with minimum effort, the front tire must have a small footprint. To carry the heavy braking and cornering load of a powerful motorcycle, it needs a large footprint.

Huge fan of the mag. Just a quick note to ask what the #$%@!? Now, there’s nothing more annoying than reading a letter in your magazine from someone whining about why their bike wasn’t included in a comparison, except... you guessed it, go get some cheese ’cause here comes the whine.

MZ Charly

Gas and go? Try charge and go. Powered by an emissions-free 750-watt Bosch electric motor, German bike-maker MZ’s sporty sit-down features a folding handlebar and solo seat for easy transport by car or truck. Top speed for the dual-drum-braked, fat-tired, headand taillight-equipped two-wheeler is a claimed 15 mph. Recharging the removable, 45-pound battery pack takes 4 to 6 hours using the supplied household-plug-in-compatible cabling coiled within the molded plastic bodywork. Pick up one in blue, red or silver for $1100. Motorrad of North America, 771 Fentress Blvd. #22, Daytona Beach, FL \ 32114; 888/225-6680; www.motorradna.com

Lava Towels
$10
"How many times do you have to be told? Don’t wash your filthy hands in the kitchen sink!” If this scenario sounds familiar, listen up: Lava Heavy-Duty Hand Cleaner Towels will get your digits clean without water. Sold in handy resealable 10-packs ($3) and 50-count tubs ($10), the pre-soaked, anti-bacterial disposables remove adhesives, grease, oil, paint and tar, and are gentle on sensitive skin.

ZLR Jacket
$330
Four-time 500cc World Champion Eddie Lawson won the 1981 and ’82 AMA Superbike and 250cc Grand Prix titles on factory Kawasakis, all the while wearing leathers virtually identical in appearanee to the new ZLR jacket. Biggest difference? The competition-weight, green-and-white zip-up is rolling in contemporary features, such as elbow and shoulder armor, pop-up and zippered vents and velcro waist cinches. Available in XS-XXL sizes, the ZLR retails for $330 Kawasaki Motors Corp. USA, 9950 Jeronimo Rd., Irvine, CA 92618, 949/770-0400; www.buykawasaki.com

Flex System Handlebar
$90
"Attention tower, this is Flight 362 requesting permission to land..." If big-air leaps are cause for pause, maybe you need a handlebar that's more touchdownfriendly. Available in a variety of popular motocross bends, AFAM's $90Flex System mates a leaf-spring-style crosspiece to a 5mm-thick, shot-peened alu minum bar for lateral stiffness and bump-absorbing give. Happy landings... AFAM USA, 5953 Engineer Dr., Huntington Beach, CA 92649; 800/290-9040; www.afamusa.com

Bibler Tripod Bivy
$325
Ah, solitude. Just you, your bike and the stars. All made possible with Bibler's Tri pod Bivy. The compact three-pole tent offers more head and foot room than tradi tional solo setups, minimizing dreaded "bivouac claustrophobia." Manufactured from Teflon-laminated rip-stop nylon, the greenor yellow-colored shell protects against the elements, yet breathes. Of course, privacy can be pricey: At $325, the Tripod Bivy retails for about the same as lower-end multi-person tents. Hey, quality isn't cheap. Black Diamond Equipment Ltd., 2084 East 3900 South, Salt Lake City, UT 84124; 801/278-5533; www.biblertents.com

ME330
$113
News flash: Metzeler to discontinue popular bias-ply MEl, ME33 and ME55! What to do, non-radial runners? Opt for the new-generation ME330 front and ME550 rear, that's what. Using the same multi-radius technology found on the high-perform ance, semi-slick Rennsport radials ensures a broader contact patch and increased traction, while the polygon-shaped center groove aids stability. Suggested retail prices start at $113 per tire for both front and rear applications.

Knee Brace
IF YOU'VE TWEAKED YOUR KNEE racing motocross, you probably wear a big ol' brace, which was no doubt prescribed by a doctor and paid for by insurance following a long. painful rehabilitation period. Too bad you weren't wearing a brace at the time of the injury, right? Well, that's the idea behind the new Asterisk Cell Knee Protection System. Sold through motorcycle shops for $549 a pair (or $305 each), the injectionmolded, carbon-fiber frames Oblique Axial-Free Motion Hinge allows natural extension and flexion of the joint, all the while providing a secure, noslip fit via its quick-release Lace-Liner Buckle System. What's more, the Cell comes in standardized S-XL sizes and doesn't require a doctor's signature. Think of it as preventive medicine.

"Is easier always better?" That was the question posed on this month's cover. The subject? Automatic transmissions, specifically Honda’s new 750A with its semi-auto gearbox. In a shootout with the CB750 Four upon which it was based, the “Hondamatic” with its smaller carburetors offered better fuel mileage but was significantly slower through the quarter-mile, in top-gear roll-ons and top speed.

Yes, we'd published spy pho-tos snapped during testing, but those blurry images of a solidly flat-black machine equipped with a clumsy handlebar fairing didn’t begin to prepare us for seeing the V-Rod in the metal.

WHEN TRIUMPH RELEASED ITS TT600 SPORTBIKE last year, speculation as to the classic marque’s return to American roadracing swept through the Cycle World office. The AMA 600cc Supersport class is a highly competitive arena that has proven to be a vital marketing battleground for the Japanese Big Four.

David Edwards
HARD TO BELIEVE now, but at one time there was no such thing as a cruiser. Streetbikes were simply that-hang a handlebar fairing and saddlebags on, you had a touring bike; mount low bars, a collector exhaust and a set of Pirelli Phantoms, you were going caferacing.

IAN FALLOON IS A MAN WHO NOWS HIS DUCATIS. I'VE only been to the factory in Italy a few times, but every time I've been there, so has Ian, researching another book. The title of his latest offering isn’t as intriguing as his previous work, The Ducati Story, but considering that the book provides a detailed technical examination of every belt-drive, two-valve Ducati to date, it’s an invaluable source of information.

RIDE YOUR MOTORCYCLE EACH AND every day, even in the dead of winter? A tall call, at best. How, then, to keep its battery in good cranking condition without regular kick-overs? Battery-maker Yuasa proposes using its Automatic Battery Charger, a compact, plastic-cased plug-in sporting three simple LED readouts for errorfree, at-a-glance updates.

AMAZING DEVICE, THE MODERN FULLface helmet, absolutely your best de fense in the unhappy event of a faceplant. Damned inconvenient, though. How so? Say you get hopelessly lost and have to seek directional salvation from an unsuspecting local.

DAVEY COOMBS
RICKY CARMICHAEL SAT COVERED IN A SWEATdrenched towel inside his state-of-the-art motorhome at the Southwick MX 338 racetrack in Massachusetts, cooling off from a moto win. It was a Sunday afternoon in June and the 21-year-old Floridian, who was recently crowned the 250cc AMA EA Sports Supercross Champion, had just sent out a friendly reminder to his factory-team rivals that he was also the best outdoor motocross rider on the planet.

Tempers and temperature combined at the Loudon, New Hampshire, AMA roadrace national this past June. The track is small, there are concrete walls and there is bad history. National riders including Miguel Duhamel have been seriously hurt here-especially in the rain.

I am considering buying either a Yamaha Road Star, which has a belt final drive, or a Yamaha Royal Star, which has a shaft drive. What are the advantages and disadvantages of shaft drive versus belt drive for a recreational rider? Which costs more to repair and which is more reliable?
