TERENCE STEVEN McQUEEN WOULD have been 75 this year. Instead, he died in some Mexican clinic after quack surgery, a last-gasp, Hail Mary attempt to rid his body of mesothelioma, a particularly virulent cancer some think was brought on by the asbestos-soaked bandannas he wore while racing sports cars.

IT WAS REALLY TOO EARLY TO STOP FOR the night when I came riding into Effingham, Illinois, a few weeks ago on my way home from the Honda Hoot in Tennessee. I pulled over into the shade of a tree and looked at the clock on my Beemer’s instrument panel.

BIG DYNO NUMBERS ARE IMPRESSIVE, sure, but they don’t necessarily make a better motorcycle. Two riders are friendly track-day rivals, riding sportbikes that are identical save for tuning differences. Their favorite track has nine turns and one-and-a-half straightaways.

I enjoyed reading both the BMW K1200R and K1200S articles in your September issue. As the founder of bmwkl200s.com, now a year old, I would like to make a correction to your write-up, though. You claim your K1200S was clocked by radar at a 165-mph top speed.

eGrip Hand Grips
$40
Motorcyclists occasionally experience hand and forearm discomfort as a result of gripping the throttle too tightly for long periods of time. Medical doctor-designed, ribbed eGrips offer a "flatter" top surface, which puts less pressure on the ulnar nerve and allows the rider to open his or her fingers while still controlling throttle pressure. Voila! No more pain. Sold in pairs for $40. Add $10 for chrome version.

Dowco Rally Pack Tank Bag and Tail Bag
$80
Dowco's ever-expanding Rally Pack Deluxe Series of universal luggage now includes a Tank Bag (expandable, sewn-in magnets and rain hood, molded-plastic carrying handle), and a Tail Bag (quick-release buckles, protective neoprene pad, space for a full-face helmet). Costing $80 each, they're available in black with contrasting color striping to match the latest sportbikes.
Ducati North America
MotoLean Sportbike Armrest
$35
Resting your left forearm atop the gas tank of your Gixxer or Ninja or R1 may look cool, but it can lead to scratches in the paint from watches and zippers. MotoLean has the cure. The $35 Sportbike Armrest is lightweight, ergonomically designed and installs in seconds.

Bob's BMW Heritage Collection T-shirts
$18
So, the holiday season is almost here and you've got no clue what to buy the rabid Beemophile in your household? Bob's BMW to the rescue with its new Heritage Collection T-shirts, imprinted with vintage images taken from the BMW archives. Available in eight different designs, sized S-XXL, the shirts retail for $18. Or chose from another of Bob's many T-shirt lines. Our favorite: "If God doesn't ride a BMW, then why is the sky Blue and White?"
Ducati North America
Moto-Maps
$43
Now there's no excuse for getting lost, as long as you're traveling in New England, that is. MotoMaps Pocket Editions are printed on removable, 3.5 x 6inch, heavy laminated stock. Each booklet contains seven color-coded one-day rides with turn-by-turn directions and points of interest. Order Connecticut/Rhode Island, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire or Vermont for $10 each, or purchase all five for $43.
Ducati North America
Shark Helmet Coin Bank
$150
There's no easier way to save for a new Shark off-road or street helmet than with a $40 Shark coin bank. Deposit your spare change in a 7-inch-tall ceramic Olivier Jacque (shown), Carl Fogarty, Chris Walker or David Vuillemin replica lid and in no time at all, you will have the $150-730 necessary to purchase a real Shark helmet.
Ducati North America
Eagle One Bucket-Free Car Wash
$5
Say goodbye to your grungy old wash pail. Now all you need to clean your bike is a sponge, a hose and Eagle One Bucket-Free Car Wash. Simply wet your bike, sparingly spray Bucket-Free Wash on all plastic, metal, rubber and vinyl surfaces, wet sponge and wash, frequently rinsing the sponge with clean water. Claimed to eliminate water spots and not strip away wax, the highly concentrated formula really does reduce wash time, thus leaving more time for really important things-like riding! Available at most auto-parts stores, a 25-ounce bottle retails for $5.

WHY DOES A RIDER buy this 600cc sportbike rather than that one? A few people read the specs and decide that way, but many more assume all the specs are pretty much the same and go for the raddest and baddest look. Yamaha is covering both bets with the 2006 YZF-R6, which looks like a sinister cross between Samurai armor and 21 st-century motorcycle tech.

The first tip that this is not your run-of-the-mill Yamaha YZF-R1 are the gold-anodized, forgedaluminum Marchesini wheels. Add to this fully adjustable Ohlins suspension and racing-inspired slipper clutch. And while it's true these items separate the YZF-R1 Limited Edition from the standard R1 better than any plaque could, you still get one that desianates the bike as one of only 500.

No blockbusters from Big Red? It would appear not. Lots to like, though. The CRF25OR is fitted with dual mufflers for more low end power, allowing Honda to change engine tune for better topend. Separate cans also provide balanced weight distribution for lighter feel and improved maneuverability.

How to empty downtown Denver? Easy: Light the wick on a 2006 VRXSE Screamin' Eagle Destroyer. Loud is the watchword here, the non-street-legal, V-Rod-based dragbike emitting the most raucous blam-blam-blam this side of a World of Outlaws sprinter from its unmuffled, ceramic-coated, 2-into-1 header.

Suzuki’s GS1000G graced the cover, the “G” indicating shaft final drive. The presence of a shaft on this particular model reminded us that Suzuki was: a) The last major bike-maker to introduce four-stroke motorcycles; b) the last Japanese company to go to shaftdrive; and c) the last to market a one-liter-plus, shaft-drive bike.

WHERE GOES THE GSX-R1000, so follows the GSX R600 and 750? Not exactly. Just as we were going to press, Suzuki revealed sparse specifications of the 2006 GSX-R600 and 750. While parallels to the big-bore racerreplica certainly exist, especially in terms of styling, the smaller-displacement machines are, according to a company spokesman, "different."

UP: To friend of the magazine Tom Overbey, for passing on a good tip in case of emergency. Paramedics often turn to an incapacitated crash victim’s cell phone for clues to that person’s identity. They scan the contacts list for “ICE” (In Case of Emergency) followed by the name and number of the person emergency services should contact on your behalf, saving time at a critical moment.

HAS ERIK BUELL GONE soft? Have corporate politics, never-ending Wisconsin winters and a public enamored with plas tic-shrouded Fours taken the fight out of the warrior from East Troy? So it would seem. Buell's latest entry, the 2006 XB12SS Lightning Long, appears to fly in the face of previous works.

With its polished wood floors and subdued lighting, you might mistake the former Brooks Brothers clothing store in Solvang, California, for a tastefully decorated branch bank-if it weren't filled with exotic motorcycles. And, in fact, the Vintage Motorcycle Museum, which houses one of the best collections in the country, does serve as a kind of bank for Dr. Virgil Elings, 66, who founded it five years ago.

Speed is all very well and good, but sometimes a man simply needs a clean change of skivvies. Hayabusa pilots in search of carrying capacity must go to the aftermarket, which is where we found the new, appropriately named Velocity line of soft luggage from Joe Rocket (www.rocket racing.com).

Perhaps the scariest thing that motorcycle manufacturers face is the age of their customers. Thirty-some years ago, the average motorcycle buyer was about 21 years old. Today, he's over 40, and, worse, each year the average customer gets older.

The late Phil Irving designed the fabulous Vincent motorcycles that are still being cited as major sources of inspiration by designers working today. Later, Irving supplemented a modest income by writing a series of articles on tuning technique, and these were collected and first published in book form in 1948.

I don't know about you, but I lost interest in dirtbike videos about the time the third or fourth Crusty Demons of Dirt made its debut. With rare exception, films in this genre are all pretty much the same-repetitive freestyle tricks, speed-metal music and untalented jumpers crashing their brains out.

My first copy of Motocourse, paid for with wages earned from a summer janitorial job, set me back nearly $50. That was a lot of money to me, but my racing hero, Eddie Lawson, was the cover subject, the smooth-riding American having just wrapped up his third 500cc title.

THE CREW AT CLEANTOOLS, MAKERS of The Absorber, a synthetic chamois for drying off cars and bikes after washing, really get into their work, tossing off phrases like "sponge-like pore structure" and "capillary action." The claim is that the man-made leather-like PVA material is better than the real thing, absorbing water three times faster and holding 50 percent more before reaching its saturation point.

WHILE THE TECH INSPECTOR MEASURED THE ground clearance and wheelbase of my borrowed Honda CBR 1100XX-based Pro-Street dragbike, I cradled my helmeted head in my hands. It was time to get my program in gear. My time slip from the last pass read 8.06 seconds at 195 mph, and I knew that wasn't going to cut it in the upcoming semi-finals.

My 1985 Harley-Davidson Low Glide has less than 15,000 miles on the odometer. As the numbers indicate, the bike sits for long periods of time. On occasion, when started after a period of nonuse, oil belches out the breather hose and the air-cleaner canister, making quite the mess.

As a follow-up to the Candid Cameron column that appeared in the January, 2005, issue, I would like to ask: In contrast with the engine-oil recommendations found in car owner’s manuals, which state a minimum API service category requirement and allow any equal or higher category, the motorcycle manufacturers (the Japanese, at least) specify specific and quite old categories.
