IT HAS NOT BEEN A GOOD YEAR FOR START-UP motorcycle companies. First Cannondale, makers of truly innovative fuel-injected dirtbikes, went nubblies-up. Now the news that after four years of a difficult, fits-and-starts resurrection, the grand old Indian nameplate is, once again, gone.

HAD TO DROP OFF MY DUCATI ST2 FOR its 600-mile post-break-in check-up last Wednesday—just slightly overdue, as usual, at 1100 miles—so I called up my good friend Jim to see if he wanted to ride along in my van. “Thought I might make the rounds of three or four different dealerships in southern Wisconsin, as long as we’re out and about, and look at some new bikes,” I said.

How DO YOU KNOW THAT EACH OF THE cylinders of a multi-cylinder engine is operating at its best? How do you know if each receives the same intake airflow or the same fuel mixture strength? Maximum power is given when each cylinder receives an air/fuel mixture close to 12.5 to 1.

Whatever you're paying Peter Egan, he deserves a raise. I just read his piece, "Resurrection and Glory," in the October issue, in which he describes the "inexplicable pleasure" that Harleys bring to their riders. I ride my Honda Gold Wing for long trips and my BMW Roadster for short ones, and wouldn't trade them for a fleet of Harleys, but reading Egan's piece almost made me want to worship at the Harley altar.

TLD SE off-road helmet
$425
Troy Lee, helmet-painter, film-maker and Supermoto racer/team owner, has come full circle: He not only penned the graphics for the new TLD SE off-road helmet, he designed it! The DOT- and Snell-certified brain-bucket features a carbon-fiber and kevlar-reinforced fiberglass shell, a snap-out, washable liner, goggle-alignment guides and a “thermal crown cooling/exhaust chamber” built into the impact-absorbing EPS liner. Available in XS-XXL sizes, the SE comes in four styles: Ryan Hughes Signature Series black, blue or silver, $425; silver, blue or red flame, $425; flat black, $415; and silver, $415. Two Orbit visors and a TLD helmet bag are included.
Troy Lee Designs
SYN3
$8.25
Authenticity is one of Harley-Davidson’s strongest marketing tools, so you know when The Motor Company uses the word “synthetic,” there has to be a good reason. There is, for H-D has introduced a fully synthetic, 20w50 oil for use in the engine, primary and transmission. SYN3 boasts lower oil consumption, superior cooling, greater film strength and reduced wear. At $8.25 per quart, it isn’t cheap, but neither is your Harley or Buell.
Troy Lee Designs
CyclePump
$85
“Air when you need it.” That’s the concept behind the CyclePump. The compact, 12-volt unit is rated for 200 psi, and will top off a tire in 1-2 minutes; re-inflating a completely flat tire takes 3-5 minutes, depending on the application. Hey, try that with a hand pump! There are three versions, each of which comes with an 8-foot power cord and a cordura-nylon carrying pouch. We recommend the $85 Deluxe model, which also includes a Universal Plug (for BMW-style power outlets and cigarette lighters), 15-amp-fused battery alligator clips and an inline two-prong SAE plug for use with electric clothing or battery-charger pigtails. A welcome toolkit addendum for commuters and long-haul types alike, the compact CyclePump is especially appealing to adventure-touring riders, who often need to alter tire pressures based on changing road conditions.
Troy Lee Designs
ASV Y-Handle
One surefire way to save time and minimize frustration when wrenching on bikes is by using the right tool for the job. The Y-Handle has a 3/8-inch socket driver at each end, which means it’s actually three tools in one. Each arm measures 5 inches in length, and the entire chromed steel forging is coated in textured rubber to guarantee safe, non-slip grip.
Troy Lee Designs
Cargo Buckle
$79
Sick of searching for lost tie-downs when you’re in a hurry to get your stuff loaded? Well, search no more: Self-contained and fully retractable, the Cargo Buckle bolts to your truck bed or trailer and features swivel mounts and 56-inch straps. Sold in pairs, the setup retails for $79.
Troy Lee Designs
Fly Racing Runway Ramp
$100
If your dirtbike loading ramp doesn’t fit in your bed—your truck bed, that is—try the Runway Ramps from Fly Racing. The aluminum designs feature polished surfaces, traction-enhancing grooving on the rungs and rubberized, angle-cut “feet” for maximum slip resistance. The clincher? The ramps fold to half their 79-or 92-inch original lengths so as to easily slip into any truck or van. Priced at $100 and $110, respectively, both are load-rated to 750 pounds.
Troy Lee Designs
BMW BoxerCup Apparel
$1205
What’s this, BMW roadracing leathers? Ja. Based on the suits worn by the racers in the international BoxerCup series, the $1205 zip-together, two-piece outfit is made of rugged Nappa cowhide and padded in all the important places. Leather and textile stretch panels provide uninhibited freedom of movement, and velcro panels accommodate knee-sliders. Choose from white/blue or silver/gray color schemes in men’s sizes 36-50 and 40L-46L. Matching carbon-fiber-trimmed boots ($275) and gloves ($159) complete the ensemble.
Troy Lee Designs
Asphalt & Gas Knee Sliders
$50
What better to velcro onto your new BoxerCup leathers than a set of blue-and-white BMW roundel knee-sliders? Choose from color-impregnated plastic or hand-painted leather for $50 and $70, respectively. Other brand logos, happy faces, skulls & cross-bones and custom designs are also available.

Bruno de Prato
SEPTEMBER’S MILAN SHOW found the Italian motorcycle industry wading through one of its transitional periods. These cyclical times are unavoidable; there are too many small makers, many of whom, despite craftsmen who possess great ingenuity and technical skill, suffer from an inherent inability to lay down solid longterm plans.

Aprilia's ever-evolving RSV Mille R was one of the show-stoppers at Milan, but the really big news from the Italian bike-maker was a new twin-cylinder motocross/supermoto engine designed by the Angelo Macchi-led team of technicians who deserted Cagiva-Husqvarna earlier this year.

A black-on-black cover previewed a full road test of the BMW R65, but the color treatment wasn’t the only reason the latest Boxer appeared slimmer. Compared with the previous R80/7, the new model was more than 30 pounds lighter. A smaller gas tank, shorter piston stroke, lighter engine internals and 2-inch-shorter swingarm were all part of the nip and tuck.

LOOKS LIKE INDIAN MAY HAVE made its last stand. When an investment deal fell through in September, the company was forced to cease production and fire 380 employees. The announcement came just days before Indian’s 2004 dealer meeting, where, ironically, the company was set to unveil new, significantly improved models and announce a $1000 price rollback across the board, amid good news that sales had picked up from 3800 units in ’02 to 4500 this year.

FACT: BIG-BORE DIRT Thumpers are a dying breed. Where once there were as many as eight different models, now there are but two readily available big bikes for big men: the Honda XR650R and now, the KTM 625 SXC. By re-introducing what is essentially an updated version of the old LC4, KTM has created a pretty good dirtbike, its crowning jewel being electric starting.

HOW CAN NAKED GET ANY BETTER THAN IT already is? Nude is nude, not crude, Just as bare as you can bear, which is totally naked and ready to party. Say what? I think what w're saying here under the influence of all this undressed style is that life just gets better when bodywork falls away to reveal mechanical beauties such as these, with major metallic heartbeats coming in three flavors: American aircooled, pushrod mega-motor; mildly modded Italian desmo; or classic muscled-up and stripped-down four-cylinder Superbike.

HONDA 599
$7099
HONDA 599: Hey, Big Red, what about us? That’s a question we’ve been asking ever since the Hornet 600 made its European debut in 1998. Seems Honda has seen the light, as it will now bring the reworked-for-2003 version stateside. Power comes from the carbureted CBR600F3 mill, with a 919-style, steel-backbone frame supporting a 41mm cartridge fork, spring-preload-adjustable shock and an aluminum swingarm. Made in Italy, the 599 will retail here for $7099.

RZ NUDA
MONDIAL RZ NUDA: Following a corporate shake-up in which Swiss duo Daniel Alismero and Rafael Alfonso replaced Italian Roberto Ziletti (the man who two years ago resurrected the blue oval), Mondial arrived at the Milan Show with a new naked bike: the RZ Nuda, a stripper version of the Honda RC51-engined Piega repli-racer. Styling is headed by bug-eye projector-beam lighting. No word on availability or pricing. (It’s Italian, so probably no on both counts...)

Thruxton 900
$7999
Triumph Thruxton 900: Triumph shocked Milan with the monster-motored Rocket III, then charmed it with the $7999 Thruxton 900, the two models creating a strident contrast between past and future. Created in deference to the Bonneville-based endurance racers of the late Sixties, the bigger-bore, higher-compression 865cc version of the current Bonnie parallel-Twin makes 69 horsepower and 53 foot-pounds of torque. Clip-on handlebars, spring preload-adjustable suspension, sportier steering geometry and a shortened wheelbase are among the chassis changes of this neo-café-racer. Claimed dry weight is unchanged from that of the standard model at 451 pounds.

THE HILLS ARE ALIVE! EVER since KTM debuted its 950 Adventure at the 2000 Munich Show, motorcyclists have wondered when that bike’s V-Twin engine would make its way into a proper streetbike. A prototype 950 Duke was in fact displayed at last year’s Munich Show, but it’s been all quiet on the Austrian front since then.

NOT EVERYONE NEEDS OR EVEN DESIRES A SUPERsport bike. But who in their right-wristed mind wouldn’t find merit in a user-friendly, practical package that delivers supersport-type performance? Judging from the stateside success of Yamaha’s FZl—a landslide sales leader in the liter-class standard-bike category—there are plenty of folks who subscribe to just such an idea.

"ZERROOO!” SHOUTED THE TIMEKEEPER. Uh, oh, what have I done now? “Zero, you got a 0.00,” he elaborated. Inconceivable. Granted, I had begun to get a handle on this timekeeping thing, but all I was using was the second hand on my Tag Heuer. I’d have been happy to cross the finish line within a few seconds of my specified time, never mind nailing it to the hundredth of a second!

ACROSS THE PARKING LOT sits a gleaming yellow jewel of a 1970s Ducati bevel-drive Supersport, but something just isn’t right. There’s too much air between the front wheel and the engine, and it just rolled out of the back of a midsize van, not really big enough for a proper 750.

LAST WINTER’S CYCLE World International Motorcycle Show in New York City was a bit different than the other 13 stops on the circuit. Definitely more urban, with an emphasis on streetfighter sport-bikes, stunt-riding videos and hoochie mommas with an extra dose of jiggy in their short-shorts.

MAN, WHAT I WOULD have given for one of these when I was a kid. I was lucky—I had a Honda XR80—but in comparison, the Yamaha TT-R125LE is way cooler. It even looks like a YZ450F! Think like a kid for a minute—not too hard for me, I’ll tell you. The situation isn’t that complex: You see a motorcycle and you want it.

Leave it to the Brown Brothers, Washington-based masters of minibike mayhem, to turn a mild-mannered Honda CRF230 trailster into a maximum moto-machine. Okay, it’s still a minibike, but it ain’t much like the playbike it once was. We’re mega-sure of that.

MOST MEMBERS OF THE CW STAFF have a good grasp of how to loft the front wheel of a motorcycle, but we know that not everyone shares this skill. Keith Code knows it, too. His latest school, On One Wheel, is a one-day, $495 crash (oops) course in how to ride a proper wheelie.

AMA Pro Racing ignited a firestorm recently when it announced sweeping rules changes that effectively would have put an end to traditional short-track and TT bikes in favor of motocross-based machinery. Slated for the 2004 season, the proposed rules were designed to reflect the changing motorcycle marketplace, increase rider participation, expand OEM involvement and reduce costs, said the AMA. The plans called for a reduction in engine displacement, going from the current 505cc limit to either 350-450cc, liquid-cooled, multi-valve Singles or 400-500cc, air-cooled, two-valve Singles.

What is your opinion about sportbike handlebar risers? I’ve read that they can upset a bike’s steering geometry and have other bad effects. Any time I’m looking to buy a new bike, I’m always concerned about comfort, because that one consideration is very important to me.
