WE ALL LOVE A GOOD CHASE SCENE, don’t we? Steve McQueen evading evil Nazi hordes in The Great Escape. Burt Reynolds as “Bandit” gunning his Trans Am to greater glory in all those Smokey movies. Hell, NASCAR, now so mainstream it’s sickening, has at its roots a bunch of good ol' boys in jacked-up jalopies running white lightnin’ from the rev’nooers.

MY BROTHER BRIAN, WHOSE JOB HAS him traveling even more than mine, and I are solidly agreed on at least one thing: When you arrive in a strange city, the best way to find out where you are-physically and culturally-is to get up early in the morning, leave your hotel and go running and/or walking.

WHAT IS “SIMPLE HARMONIC MOTION” and why do you care? One example is a child on a swing. The essentials are a mass, a restoring force and some kind of driving force to set the mass into oscillatory motion. In our example, the mass is the child, the restoring force is gravity, tending to return the swing to a position pointing at the center of the Earth, and the exciting force is the doting parent, giving the child a push at the top of every swing.

As a newspaper reporter for 20 years, and a sportbike rider of more recent vintage, I can assure Mr. Editor Edwards that the Los Angeles Times piece he complained of (“Armed and Dangerous,” Up Front, September) was not the “hatchet job” on motorcycling he accused it of being.

K&L Supply MC 15 Cycle Dock
K&L Supply Co.
[no value]
$245
Introducing the mother of all wheel chocks, K&L Supply’s MC 15 Cycle Dock. The zinc-plated steel unit was originally conceived for use with K&L’s new MC650 hydraulic lift, but is suitable for duty on any flat surfacegarage floors, pickups, vans, trailers, etc. The adjustable rocker clamp comes in two sizes to accept a broad range of wheel diameters and widths. Bolt-on “boom” features two tie-down eyelets and adjustable rubber feet for added stability. Yours for $245.

Michelin Pilot Road
K&L Supply Co.
[no value]
$126
Say hello to the newest member of the Michelin family, the Pilot Road. Replacement for the popular Macadam 100X, the street-focused radial from the French tire-maker uses two casing plies oriented at 75 degrees from the tire’s direction of travel, with a zero-degree crown ply. Silica compounding ups grip, especially on wet pavement and in cooler conditions, while varying-depth tread pattern evacuates water with greater efficiency, yet provides good feedback in dry conditions. Suggested retail prices for fronts start at $126, while rears begin at $156.
K&L Supply Co.
Fisher-Price Power Wheels
K&L Supply Co.
[no value]
$210
And they’re off! Racing around the backyard, that is. Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Ride-On ($210) and Kawasaki Super Shock Dirt Bike ($239) are the latest additions to Fisher-Price’s Power Wheels line of battery-powered kiddie-haulers. Concerned about Junior’s well being? Relax. Maximum speed is 5 mph (2.5 mph in reverse), Power Lock brake provides safe, easy stops, and outrigger wheels prevent tipovers.
K&L Supply Co.
Oakley Sandbag
K&L Supply Co.
[no value]
$98
For an alternative over-the-shoulder method of bearing your belongings, Oakley offers its sling-style Sandbag. The triangular-shaped sack is organized to use all available space, giving never-sit-still-types loads of secure storage. There’s even a pass-through opening for your CD/MP3 player’s headphone cord. Get it in black only for $98.
K&L Supply Co.
Black+Gray Hi-Per Hanger
K&L Supply Co.
[no value]
$27
Wire coat hangers are for shirts, not motorcycle jackets. Manufactured from aluminum, molded plastic and stainless-steel, the extra-wide Hi-Per Hanger supports more than 150 pounds-heck, you could hang yourself up!-and maintains your garment’s original shape. Optional Power Clips with rubber-tipped jaws put gloves and pants in their place, too. Prices start at $27.
K&L Supply Co.
Moto Guzzi Eagle Collection
K&L Supply Co.
[no value]
$17
The eagle has landed at your nearby Moto Guzzi dealer. The Italian bike-maker’s new apparel line comprises legendary Italian styling that you can wear on or off the bike. The 20-item range runs the gamut from jackets to casual wear. Prices start at $17.
K&L Supply Co.
Nelson-Rigg CTB 900 Deluxe Tourer
K&L Supply Co.
[no value]
$176
Ever tried to cram a week’s worth of clothes and other travel necessities into the leather saddlebags found on many so-called touring cruisers? Fuggetaboutit! Factor in a passenger, and you’ll be lucky if there’s space left over for anything more than a shave kit and clean T-shirt. Nelson-Rigg to the rescue! The new RiggPaks Cruiser Touring Bags come in eight different models, five of which boast its quad-strap "Full Nelson’’ mounting system that makes safe, secure attachment to most backrests a no-brainer. Designed to hold its shape even when empty, the UV-treated Tri-Max polyester CTB 900 Deluxe Tourer ($176) is jam-packed with features such as an expanding main compartment and side pockets, security loops and built-in backpack straps. What with the detachable roil bag, waterproof rain liner, combination lock and lifetime warranty, there’s nothing stopping you from loading up and hitting the road.

WIN ON SUNDAY, SELL on Monday? You bet, especially in the ultra-competitive world of AMA Supersport racing. Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha all came up short this year, having fallen prey to the Suzuki GSX-R600 of hard-charging Aaron Yates. No surprise, at least two of the three also-rans will field brand-new machinery in 2003.

Want what may well be the fastest middleweight on the market? Then get on down to your Kawasaki dealer, because there’s no replacement for displacement. Per AMA Supersport rules, the new ZX-6RR is restricted to 600cc. Though virtually identical otherwise, the ZX-6R gets a rompin’, stompin’ 636cc a la last year’s Euro-only Ninja.

In a time not too long ago, from a land far, far away, came Maicos. I longed to ride one of these mystical German machines. Much like the Swedish Husqvarnas of the day, they were status symbols, especially for a kid perched on the seat of a Honda XR80.

This year’s best belt for the buck? No doubt, Suzuki’s TL1000-egined V-Strom. So why not a middleweight spin-off of the highly competent adventure-tourer powered by the little-V-Twin-that-could from the SV650? Such a machine could compete with BMW’s F650GS Dakar, yet cost much less than its Munich-made counterpart.

Aprilia has capitalized on the Japanese rider’s popularity by offering a special-edition Haga Replica with graphics similar to those of the factory racer.

A fitting follow-on, considering the 1973 Z-l was the first true Road-Burner from Japan, trumping Honda’s CB750 Four with an extra 167cc, double-overhead cams and an additional 15 mph on top.

WHEN DO YOU KNOW A GURNEY Alligator is absolutely unique? Perhaps it’s when you’re at a traffic light, and you find yourself looking level into the eyes of drivers of low-slung sedans in the lane next to yours-and have to tilt your head back to look up at SUV operators.

“A SPORT-CRUISER IS A CONTRADICTION in terms,” I once wrote. Now, Dan Gurney proves me wrong-but it took placing the emphasis really strongly on “sport” to do it. Gurney has built a high-performance, featherweight streetbike with a stretched-out riding position as comfortable as that of any chopper-style V-Twin, while offering performance more like that of a 600cc supersport.

YEARS AGO ON A KENTUCKY BACKROAD I’D SPENT ABOUT 15 minutes barely hanging onto a roaring Harley Sportster. But this was different. This was a 1000-mile ride on Harley-Davidson’s 2003 models, bikes that no one had even seen on the road yet, in celebration of an anniversary that most companies never see.

I'M GOING TO TELL YOU ABOUT AN INCREDIBLY BEAUTIful book that you may not be able to find anywhere but within Ducati itself. On the hoped-for chance that you can somehow one day put your hands on a copy, I shall describe it. This is Ducati’s 2001 yearbook, consisting of beautiful photographs-many of 998 engine parts-together with text that actually admits development includes controversy, as well as research and analysis.

LONGTIME READERS OF CYCLE WORLD WILL BE FAMILiar wjth the author of this book, for Michael Scott has been a contributor almost since he began covering the Grand Prix circus full-time in 1984. It is the English-man’s intimate familiarity with GP racing and its giants, having witnessed so many acts and gotten to know all the greats of the past two decades, that makes this book such a fine glimpse into the minds and racing lives of these driven men.

NO STORY AT THE BIG MAGAZINE IS COMPLETE without the proper photography. "Why don't you two," says photograher Riles to Schwantz and myself, "ride together, really tight, so I can get you both in the frame thrOugh Turn 4." That would've been the time for me to suggest to Kev that I take the point, but I figured I could keep up with him.

It's pitched as the "Switzerland of Ohio" tour, which sounds pretty implausible considering Ohio stands as entry to the vast, flat Midwest. But about 100 miles into Larry Grodsky’s Stayin’ Safe Motorcycle Training school, it becomes obvious how wrong perceptions can be.

Two facts that should contradict and cancel each other, but don't: 1) Dirt-track is the most difficult form of motorcycle racincing to learn; and 2) Eddie Mulder has a day job. Mulder won’t need much introduction here, as his vintage-racing Triumphs and street-trackers have appeared on these pages already.

JIMMY LEWIS
C'MON, DID YAMAHA REALLY NEED market research, focus groups and owner surveys to find out what changes the new YZ450F needed? After all the charts and graphs were trotted out, was it really a surprise that riders were satisfied with the current 426’s power, suspension, handling and durability; they just wanted less weight and easier starting?

KNEE GUARDS ARE ONE OF THE MOST important yet often overlooked pieces of off-road safety gear. Problem is, more often than not, conventional knee guards don’t stay put. EVS’s SC02 Pro F Series Knee/Shin Guard uses two layers of¼-inch-thick neoprene combined with four hook-and-loop fasteners for a secure, non-slip fit.

EACH YEAR, MOTORCYCLE MANUFACturers go to great lengths to cut not just pounds, but mere ounces, from their motocross bikes, which are already among the lightest two-wheelers going. That’s why the Dr. D YZ Wet Sump Conversion Kit, which lops a whopping 3 pounds off a Yamaha YZ250F or YZ426F, is such a big deal.

Even though Honda’s Nicky Hayden led the AMA Superbike Championship from the time he won the Daytona 200 until he clinched the title in Virginia five months and nine race wins later, he never had a moment’s rest. He can thank Kawasaki’s Eric Bostrom, who won four races himself, and only really lost his chance at winning the title when his engine locked-up and caused his race-one crash at VIR. This epic, season-long battle between Hayden’s lOOOcc V-Twin and Bostrom’s 750cc inline-Four underlines how different the AMA series is from World Superbike, yet both are contemplating similar changes in technical rules.

I am familiar with the equation used to calculate horsepower when the engine’s torque and rpm values are both known: HP = (torque x rpm) ÷ 5252. I do not know, however, where that 5252 constant came from. Can you explain? Jeff McHugh Posted on www.cycleworld.com An excellent question.
