GOTTA LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN COMES Together. My Trackmaster Triumph T140 special, being tweaked into top mechanical nick by the crew at RPM Cycles in Dallas, was ready at the same time family business required me to be in Texas. I was assessing which of the Edwards’ fleet of 100,000-mile gas-hogs was most suitable for hauling duty when Honda called, wondering if I’d like to try out the new Ridgeline, the company’s firstever pickup truck.

I MUST SAY THAT OUR WEEKLY MEETINGS of the Slimey Crud Motorcycle Gang here in Madison, Wisconsin, are much nicer in the summer than in the winter. We can sit outside at our favorite beer garden and actually gaze upon our cluster of bikes in person, rather than brood indoors at the bar and merely talk about them.

THE AMA HAS COLLAPSED THE WAVE function of speculation into a certainty that U.S. Superbikes will remain at l000cc until 2008. Good going. Will we now see the hoped-for collision of five brands, head-to-head? Well, uh, you know, budget, blah-blah, policy, sales curve, threatened Chinese currency devaluation, blah-blah.

Snap-on Mr. Big Roll Cab
$16,770
What we have here is nothing less than the ultimate in tool storage. Snap-on’s largest-ever rolling cabinet, the $16,770 Mr. Big, has 30 drawers in 13 sizes and weight capacities to accommodate an immense variety of tools. Manufactured from double-walled, rolled-and-welded 16-gauge steel, the stainlesssteel-topped 12-foot-long structure uses Snap-on’s patented Lock V Roll design to prevent unwanted drawer opening, while eight heavy-duty locking swivel casters allow easy movement in all directions. Don’t like Snap-on Red? Opt instead for Mica Green, Deep Cranberry, Electric Orange, Ultra Yellow, Artie Silver, Gloss Black, Royal Blue or Candy Apple Red.
Snap-on
Applied Racing Pro MX Gauge
$20
All tire air pressure gauges are not the same. Pencil gauges, for example, are notoriously inaccurate. Designed specifically for dirtbikes, Applied Racing’s Pro MX gauge has a large, rubbercovered dial with a 0-30 psi span, an angled chuck that swivels on both ends and a pressure bleed valve. Suggested retail price is $20.
Snap-on
Alpinestars Stroke shoes
$130
If you’re looking for the protection, support and all-weather traction of a riding boot together with the comfort, style and versatility of a casual shoe, look no farther. With its extended toe-cap protection, contoured “stay-tied” laces and integrated shank, the $130 Alpinestars Stroke is all that and more. Choose from black, gray or sand, in half sizes 6-13.
Snap-on
M4 Performance Slip-On Mufflers
$626)
More power! Better sound! Cool looks! Get it all with M4 Performance slip-on mufflers for the Yamaha FZ6. Choose from carbon-fiber ($707) or titanium ($626). Don’t own an FZ6? M4 offers slip-ons and complete systems for most late-model Japanese sportbikes and off-road machines, as well as for MZ, KTM and Triumph.

THE EARTH SHAKES, plates raffle in the china cabinet. Out of the East thunders this rumor: A new Kawasaki ZZR1300 may appear as soon as 2006 with more than 190 horsepower and peak torque of 110 foot-pounds. The machine is chain-driven, has dual upswept mufflers and a proba ble wheelbase just over 59 inches.

het your sport-Twin appetite? In keeping with BMW's recent performance trend, the German bike-maker is readying a new sporty Boxer to replace the aging Ri 100S. Based around the new, more powerful 1170cc flat-Twin that first debuted in the globe-trotting Ri 200GS and more recently appeared in the Ri 200RT and ST sport-tourers, the engine is likely to produce more than the claimed 110 horsepower of the latter models.

Valentino Rossi’s nickname is “The Doctor.” Now he really is one! The charismatic 26-year-old multiple world champion recently received an honorary academic award-similar to a doctorate-from Italy’s University of Urbino. The nearly 500-year-old institution applauded Rossi’s “extraordinary communicative capacity, his phenomenal sports talent, his good nature, creativity and innate ability to project all this— not only in the Italian media, but internationally—to further the sport.”

Righteous bike freaks among you would look past "Moto Guzzi’s Exotic V50” on the cover and head right to the Hesketh 10OOcc 90-degree V-Twin superbike. The prototype, built by Lord Alexander Hesketh of England, was being considered for series production but, “If Team Hesketh does it all, the price will be high,” noted author Allan Girdler.

This past spring, Vespa importer Piaggio USA teamed up with the noted New York fashion institute to “re-imagine the icon of modem Italian style and update it for American motorists of a new century.”

While none of the technology utilized could be considered revolutionary, the improvements showcase how effective the evolutionary design process can be.

JAY MCNALLY That fast orange company, KTM, and its raceready 450 SMR have gotten faster. In no uncertain terms, KTM and its SMR lineup have been at the forefront of the stateside progression of supermoto racing. Between its strictly super moto SMRs and double-duty SMC models that come with motocross as well as 1 7-inch SM wheels, KTM North America has sold approximately 3000 supermoto-related bikes since the sport's "homecoming."

Return of the Super Glide
new bikes 2006
The Most Important Harley Ever Gets an Encore
[no value]
[no value]
STEVE ANDERSON
WHAT? A NEW, NOSTALGIC HARLEY? SHOCKING, truly shocking. But this 35thanniversary Super Glide isn't reaching back to the Forties or Fifties like most of Harley's retrobikes. It's harking back to the fall of 1970, and the most important Harley-Davidson of them all: the 1971 Super Glide, in all its white, red and blue glory.

Old is new-and-improved and yesterday is a brighter tomorrow at Harley-Davidson. The Super Glide isn’t the only model name being revived for 2006. Making a return is the Heritage Softail, last seen 15 years ago and now updated with a fat, 200mm-wide rear tire—the biggest ever on a Harley-and broader fender to match.

PLAYBIKES ARE USUALLY SUMMED UP IN ONE word: fun. That one-word description is fine if you can get away with it, but we magazine-types can't make a living using only one word to describe a bike. So, what can WelSy about playbikes? Does fun mean that they’re not suitable for serious evaluation?

YOU REMEMBER THE FAMOUS OLD backhanded Chinese curse, May You Live in Interesting Times? Well, going by that yardstick, the Victory Vegas has been absolutely the most blessed bike to take up residence in Cycle World's long-term fleet. During its two years and 10,311 miles with us, the Vegas has required nothing other than oil changes and one new set of tires.

Written for sportbike owners who aren't afraid of getting a little grease under their fingernails, 101 Sportbike Performance Projects is a do-it-yourself reference manual worthy of a place on any garage mechanic’s shelf. The 256-page volume, authored by journeyman moto-joumalist Evans Brasfield, covers topics ranging from general maintenance to performance modifications, such as installing a nitrous-oxide system.

If you're old enough to remember Trelleborgs, Jofas and CZs, you'll enjoy BackTrack, a motocross retrospective written and produced by Kent Taylor. Actually, "retrospective" isn't quite the right word. What this video is, is a compilation of interviews shot at the Third Annual Texas Vintage Pro Am interspersed with action footage from the 1970s.

Rev’lt, a Dutch company now making a strong run at the U.S. market, has some suggestions. We came away quite impressed with Rev Tt’s mesh Airflow jacket used during last year’s “Sturgis Shootout,” and have spent the past six months with several sets of the company’s ventilated Hurricane gloves.

A recent influx of two-piece riding outfits has kept female sportbike riders out of ill-fitting men’s gear, but roadracing-specific one-piece suits remain a rarity.

Why does a big V-Twin with massive torque need a close-ratio six-speed gearbox? I own a 2004 Suzuki SV1000, and just the other day had to do a triple downshift to get by a truck when the road narrowed from two lanes to one. The SV’s big V-Twin engine lets me spend a lot of time in the 3000-5000-rpm range (redline is at 11,000), but when all-out acceleration is needed, I still need to click down two, three or even four gears.

Here’s a common occurrence: You’re able to get a socket on the head of a nut or bolt in a really tight spot, but there’s not enough room to use a typical ratchet. A short-handled ratchet might fit in the space, but the area still is too tight to permit the 8 or 10 degrees of handle swing that most ratchets require between engagements of their gear teeth.

After reading about the guy who had problems with his gas tank vent (“Short-run Sportster,” April issue), I thought I’d tell you about what happened to someone I work with here at the U.S. Naval Academy. He rode his Yamaha YZF-R6 from Annapolis to Myrtle Beach for the bike rally, and every time he stopped for gas and opened the gas cap, the sides of the tank would spring out with an audible pop.
