AS AFETY BRIEFINGS GO, TFIIS ONE DEFinitely had a Down Under flair, especially the lengthy rundown of indigenous road hazards. “Avoid wombats at all costs,” chastened our tour leader. “It’s like running into a beer keg with paws.” So noted.

RANDOM SNOW FLURRIES SLANTED across my headlights like small javelins, but inside my car the CD player glowed warmly. "Donde esta la estacion deferrocarril?" a male voice asked me, ferociously trilling every "r" in the Spanish word for "railway?" I quickly repeated the phrase twice, my tongue clicking against the roof of my mouth like a pair of castanets.

MTUCH-DISCUSSED IN AUTOMOTIVE CIR-cles is the idea of “virtual corporations.” Instead of pursuing the old Henry Ford model of a company that owns everything from iron mines to dealerships, and carries out all operations in between, the virtual corporation would own almost nothing.

I want to thank Cycle World for taking my MotoCzysz Cl seriously (“Secret Superbike,” January). However, there is some confusion over a few items that I would like to clear up. The reason the Cl’s cranks are placed longitudinally as opposed to the more traditional transverse orientation found in most inline-Fours is not to produce a narrow engine.

Sidi Scorpion
$160
There are times when~ roadrace boots are a bit too much. Do you really need carbon-fiber shIn guards or replaceable toe sliders for kickin' it at the mall with your buddies, or for hoofin' it up to the Corkscrew at La~una Seca? For just such occasions, Sidi makes the $160 Scorpion. This is, however, no ordinary high-top. Available in European sizes 38-48 the lightweight, ail-black slip-on incorporates many of the features and materials found on the company’s top-of-the-line creations, including a shift pad, reinforced ankle and heel, ventilation and high-traction sole. Dual Velcro-backed straps simplify entry and egress, and the absence of a heavily reinforced shank makes long walks actually pleasurable. Okay, the Scorpion leaves your lower leg exposed, but the protection is still far better than with a standard tennis shoe. Motonation, 1100 N. Magnolia Ave. #A, El Cajon, e« o IV/HU I-H iuu, www.motonation.com

DESPITE THE DEBUT OF the exciting new 160horsepower, inlineFour-powered K1200R and S, there is no doubt that BMW remains faithful to the Boxer Twin, the engine upon which the German manufacturer built its considerable legend. For proof, look no farther than the all-new R1200RT and ST. Spy photos of both bikes surfaced at the end of last year, forcing BMW’s hand to the point that it pushed the public debut of the touring-oriented RT to the last big event of the year, December’s Bologna Motor Show, while still keeping the more sporting ST under wraps as best it could.

Sort of a dirtrider’s Tuono, the SVX SM gets a headlight fairing, “hugger” rear fender and a new underseat exhaust to complete the conversion from track to street.

THE BIKE BIZ ISN'T AS simple as we’d like it to be. We’d like brilliant designs to be manufactured to the highest standards by a dedicated workforce, then set loose upon an appreciative public that snaps them up as fast as they are produced. The driving forces are passion for motorcycling, passion for excellence.

CAN'T HELP BUT FEEL A little sorry for owners of Triumph’s Daytona 600, as the new stroked and massaged Daytona 650 is far better than its additional 47cc of engine displacement might suggest. Parking the new bike alongside last year’s machine offers no visual hint as to the level of refinement experienced when riding the two machines back-to-back, as we did at the press launch held last November at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Sheer terror on Kawasaki’s ZX-RR MotoGP racer

Brian Catterson
THERE HAS GOT TO BE AN EASIER WAY TO LEARN A RACEtrack,” I thought to myself as I rocketed down the front straightaway at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain, last November. Steed for my first-ever stint on the 2.48-mile, 14-turn track wasn’t just some psychotically fast sportbike, but one of the most psychotically fast racebikes on this green earth: the Kawasaki ZX-RR. Unlike Valentino Rossi’s MotoGP championship-winning Yamaha YZR-M1 that I would ride 24 hours later (“Doctor for a Day,” CW, February), the Kawasaki’s 990cc inlineFour doesn’t make use of a traction-enhancing, big-bang firing order.

DESIGNING A MIDDLEWEIGHT SUPERSPORT BIKE IS A lot like walking a tightrope. On the one hand, it needs to be potent enough for professionals to win races on, but on the other, it needs to be tol-erant of novice street riders. To find the opti-mum balance, manufacturers constantly fine-tune their products, and gauge their success by looking at sales figures, racing results and yes, even magazine reviews.

IT WAS LIKE SOME SORT OF WEIRD PARADIGM SHIFT, ME sitting at a table in Repsol leathers with Nicky Hayden on the other side in street clothes. The only thing normal about the scenario was that I was the one taking notes. The occasion was the annual HRC test day at Motegi, Japan, last December, where select moto-journalists had an opportunity to throw a leg over various works Honda racebikes, Hayden’s RC21IV MotoGP bike among them.

On the surface, it probably seemed like a reasonable idea. Many Harley riders would love to learn how to do their own routine maintenance, and most of them-the males, anyway-are not prone to looking the other way when a bare-breasted female saunters into the picture.

Everyone who rides our long-term Multistrada raves about the bike's smooth-running, air-cooled V-Twin. Since this couldn’t possibly be the result of proper break-in, it must be the synthetic oil we’ve been running, first Royal Purple 20w50 with Synerlec and more recently Motul E-Tec 100.

APPEARANCES ASIDE, THE FADED-BLUE 1949 Panhead bobber you see on this page is not, repeat not, a barn-fresh find unearthed in some poor potato farmer’s estate sale. No, just like HarleyDavidson’s new Softail Deluxe, it was built in 2004 and made to look like something from the days of the Harry Truman White House.

PERHAPS THE PROJECT SEEN HERE, an ’04 Triumph Bonneville souped up, cut down and transformed into a dirt-track racer with street gear, is so logical that serendipity, the art of the happy accident, wasn’t needed. But this success story began with a happy coincidence.

BACK IN THE 1970s, when the AMA’s Grand National series mandated production-based 250cc Singles for short-track races, Harley-Davidson certified its Italian-made two-stroke motocross engine and sold it—to those who knew where and how to get one—along with a list of suitable frames, suspension and so forth.

DESPITE WHAT YOU’VE HEARD, THERE ARE SOME REPLACEments for displacement. More revs and hotter cams, for example. Porting, for another. Losing weight (your own) is oft overlooked.. .but hey, get out the boring bar, no one should have to give up a decent meal!

Sure, drooling over Hoyer’s project WR three-whatever-it-is has its moments. Right ’til I realize how thin my wallet is. Yours, too? So what to do? Well, cheap-out and try to get the beef anyway! In this case, we’re talking about the RPMs Ice Cube Big Bore kit for the Kawasaki KX250F and identical Suzuki RM-Z250 that leaves all that complicated (and expensive!) stroker stuff off the bill.

MOTORCYCLISTS WHO ENJOY LISTENing to music want two things from a set of earphones: Good sound and a reduction in ambient noise. That’s what you can expect from the ER-6 Isolator Earphones from Etymotic Research. One of the 2,475,612 items in the Aerostich RiderWearHouse catalog, these in-ear audio speakers are said to provide “superior response accuracy” while reducing engine and wind noise by as much as 20 decibels.

Five national titles, 12 track records and more than 100 round wins don’t count for much when the well runs dry. Just ask Rickey Gadson, longtime Kawasaki drag racer, who last October found himself out of a job after nearly a decade under the Team Green banner.

I own a 2002 H-D Softail Deuce with fuel-injection. I’m thinking about buying an aftermarket exhaust, and my question is whether or not a crossover tube is desirable on a 2-into-2 system. Some come with crossovers, most do not, but all new Harleys come with them from the factory.
