FIFTEEN MONTHS IS A LONG TIME BEtween kickstarts, but as soon as I swung a leg over my 1940 Indian bob-job the procedure came back like it was yesterday: Gas taps on, full choke, full throttle, magneto retarded, ignition off, three priming kicks, choke clicked back to notch one, ignition on, raise up on the lever, think good thoughts and follow through on the downstroke.

IN THE EARLY DAYS OF THE INTERNAL-combustion engine, fuel economy was a selling point, so everyone measured his competitors’ fuel consumption. From such measurements it became clear-even in 1900—that good fuel economy depended on three large issues.

Cycle World has been my favorite bike magazine for 10 years now, but Brian Catterson’s “Ghost Rider” (CW, February) has ensured at least one copy of the magazine will accompany me when I pass on, my fleshy remains returning to the earthen crust whence they came—CW by my side, guiding my spirit through the world beyond.

PowerStands
triple-tree/fork-lift Mark
($175)
Be kind to your back! Raise and lower the front and rear ends of most late-model motorcycles with ease using the chrome triple-tree/fork-lift Mark ($175) and rear spooled/non-spooled Max ($139) PowerStands. Both boast heavy-duty mild-steel construction, large quad wheels and a nifty removable toolbox.
PowerStands
reflective vest
$19
Worried about your on-bike well-being? Better don a Motorcycle Safety Foundation reflective vest, then. Layered over existing riding apparel, the $19 mesh zip-up’s white or high-visibility fluorescent lime-yellow striping makes a real impact in heavy traffic, especially during low-light commuter hours.
PowerStands
Renthal Handlebars
$85
Which Renthal handlebar-Off-Road, TwinWall or Fatbar-is right for you? The aluminum-alloy Off-Road ($85) comes in a dizzying array of bends and colors, while the double-tube TwinWall ($140) is guaranteed against fatigue-related failure-just ask AMA 125cc National Motocross champ Bubba Stewart. As its name implies, the patented Fatbar ($70) features 5mm wall thickness at both bends for greater strength. Also available: handgrips, drivechain and sprockets.
PowerStands
Chrome Series
$80
Nothing left on your late-model Japanese sportbike to chrome or polish? What about the windscreen" Sportech'S $80 Chrome Series screens are molded from 125-inch acrylic for "an original-equipment replacement fit." Available in a variety of colors, the finish is applied to the backside of the screen and then sealed to eliminate scratching and peeling.
PowerStands
SR2
$500
Based on Shoei's popular Z-two, the SR2 uses the same Advanced Integrated Matrix plus Multi-Fiber shell construction, quick-release CX-1 faceshield, integrated ventilation and removable 3-D Full Support Liner. Difference is, the graphics are relatively subdued, yet still complement late-model Honda streetbikes. Available in S-XXL sizes, the DOT-and Snell-approved SR2 retails for $500.
PowerStands
Cortech GX Sport
$220
SO, YOU SAY YOU’RE A SPORTBIKE PILOT SEARCHING FOR AN INEXPENSIVE ALTERNATIVE to a two-piece leather suit. Not finding exactly what you had in mind, are you? The trouble with most textile riding garments is they’re tailored more toward touring or dual-sporting than sport riding.

POOR ERIC BOSTROM. Runner-up to Nicky Hayden in the 2002 AMA Superbike title chase, the factory Kawasaki rider will again have to make do with what is largely the same ZX-7R-based machine Team Green has campaigned for the past decade. What’s the big deal, you ask?

HAVE A LOOK AT THESE photographs, which purport to show a shocking new Honda. It has two obviously four-stroke cylinders at the front of the vee, but a single twostroke cylinder (with expansion chamber) at the rear. What? Is this a three-stroke, single-crank hybrid, with the off-the-bottom smoothness of a four-stroke and the acceleration of a two-stroke?

Europe’s chic on/off-road adventure-touring category has a spicy new challenger: the Aprilia ETV 1000 CapoNord Rally. Based on the two-year-old CapoNord with its 60-degree 998cc V-Twin and “double-wave” aluminum beam frame, the swank-looking Rally debuted at the Bologna Motor Show this past December.

WHO ISN’T IMPRESSED by KTM’s success in parlaying off-road sales and racing success into a fast-growing company with serious world-scale ambitions and unusual designs? We’ve all heard that KTM plans to go roadracing, beginning in the 125cc Grand Prix class in 2003 and moving on to MotoGP in ’04.

First Italjet, now Malaguti... The latest Italian scooter manufacturer to join the 125cc MotoGP wars is Bologna-based Malaguti. Already Europe’s third-largest stepthrough manufacturer-and known for its sporty Ducati Corse Replica models-Malaguti is entering the motorcycle market this year with a line of 50s and 200s, so the roadracing connection makes perfect sense.

Jimmy Lewis
THE PROBLEM WITH YAMAha’s racing-oriented WR250F has always been that it’s too high-strung for casual trail riding. The high-revving 250cc four-stroke offers performance similar to that of a 125cc two-stroke, so if you weren’t considering purchasing one of the latter, you shouldn’t be thinking about the former.

IF SOMEONE WANTED TO DISMISS BMW’S NEW K1200GT, they could point out that it is nothing more than a very lightly modified K1200RS. The difference, they could complain, is only in a handful of parts. Ah, but don’t listen to any such naysayers, for how well the Bavarian engineers have chosen those few new parts.

APRILIA IS A BIG COMPANY THAT TARGETS LARGE-VOLUME production-350,000 scooters per year, for example-so highly sophisticated bikes built in small batches don’t do much for the all-important bottom line. Unless they spawn a spin-off, that is.

WITH PIERRE TERBLANCHE AND PIPPO IN HIDING DUE TO post-999 threats, it was impossible to speak with him or his pet dog about the now-aged styling of the 2003 Supersport 1000DS. But nobody cares what this bike looks like, because the really important thing we're dealing with here is the air-cooled future of Ducati.

SO, DO YOU TAKE RIDING ADVICE FROM RUBEN XAUS? SURE, he’s fast, faster than any of us will ever be, but last season on the Ducati Superbike he was the king of the highlight reel, cartwheeling his 998R with sickening regularity. But you have to listen, even if just for the fact that it’s fun to think that the information might even be relevant at the speeds you’ll be riding.

In 1964, "Speedmaster" was the unofficial pet-name given the T120R, so what better moniker with which to christen this new, sportier version of the neo-Bonneville Twin?

The loony in question is Mr. Alan Forbes, an Indian fanatic since the 1970s who has been running a parts and restoration business from a backstreet shop in the heart of Edinburgh-and a more unlikely location for Indian restoration one could not imagine.

WHEN IT COMES TO MAKING MOTORCYCLES, GAS GAS IS a lot like Burger King. "Have it your way," the saying goes, and that's just what Gas Gas execs did at their annual dealer meeting late last year. When shop owners said they could sell more 250 EC enduro bikes if they came set up specifically for the American market, Gas Gas responded with the bike you see here.

EVER THINK MAYBE THE REASON SCOOTERS HAVEN’T REALLY caught on in the USA is that they’re too small? Who wants to plod along on a lowly 50cc two-stroke or 150cc four-stroke when there’s a two-ton SUV breathing down your neck? Aprilia’s Atlantic 500 is one machine that might change America’s perception of scooters.

When Honda’s promised summertime delivery turned finally into late December, there were, no doubt, some unhappy people.

LAST SPRING, ONE OF MY SISTERS PHONED ME LOOKING FOR advice regarding a new-bike purchase, a surprise for her husband. Now, I know how particular men can get when it comes to their wheels. My brother-in-law is not only a large man, but a concrete contractor who could fill my ridin’ boots with ready-mix should I steer Sis wrong.

DODGE TOMAHAWK
Ten cylinders, 500 horses, four wheels. Think of it as a Viper that got caught in a trash compactor.

JOHN PHILLIPS
A TOMAHAWK IS A LIGHT AX USED BOTH AS A WEAPON AND AS A missile. A sponge-like version of this tool, raised and lowered in menacing motions, is what got Ted Turner and Atlanta Braves fans into such hot water with Native Americans. But in the world of motorcycles, using an Indian word must be okay-it worked just fine as a whole brand, come to think of it-because a four-wheeled motorcycle called the Tomahawk is now upon us.

CRAIG CONSTANTINE
COME AWWWN. GET REAL. DON’T BS a BS’er and all that. Two Roadogs? The impossible, larger-than-life motorcycle had a mate? The random pile of dissociated car parts had a clone? There was a Roadoppelganger? But suppose it is true; what does it say about a barroom legend that bikers have largely taken as gospel?

YAMAHA’S TZ750 ROADracer was an accident that won Daytona nine times in a row, from 1974-82. Accident? For 1972, Yamaha’s Tokyo Motor Show shocker was a prototype rocketship-a twostroke, reed-valve, four-cylinder 750cc streetbike!

The first time Don Vesco broke the 200-mph mark at the Bonneville Salt Flats, he did so at 222 mph. At 2:22 p.m. last December 16, Don Vesco passed away, his short bout with prostate cancer ending in one of the few battles he ever lost. It would be easy to say that Vesco died without realizing his ultimate dream.

ONE OF THE FEW COMPLAINTS LEVELED against the Honda RC51 when it debuted in 2000 was its 460-pound dry weight. Designed to win AMA and World Superbike championships, the bike was overbuilt in preparation for engine upgrades and fitment of sticky slick racing tires, making it a prime candidate for a diet.

JIMMY LEWIS
WE WEREN'T SITTING UNDERNEATH A TREE thinking Bud Light, reminiscing about the old days. In fact, the only time I could get with the King of Supercross was a brief phone call late at night, which came at the exact minute promised. Jeremy McGrath was in the middle of having his bigmoney Bud Light sponsorship deal pulled out from underneath him, looking for new jobs for key members of his team and wondering why these first few weeks of retirement were more hectic than racing had ever been.

Four-time 250cc World Champion Max Biaggi isn’t doing too badly for a guy who only learned how to operate a motorcycle clutch at the age of 18. What?! Yes, it’s true. Biaggi loved soccer, thought he might even pursue a career in the sport, and was only given his first motorcycle by his father on birthday number 18.

I have a 1996 Honda CBR900RR that has about 40,000 miles on it. I bought it used with 24,000 miles showing, and it’s still stock except for a Two Brothers exhaust. My problem with it involves rain. In hot or cold weather, the bike runs great, but if I ride it in the rain, it will sputter and die in only a few miles.
