Cook, I'm afraid your misspent youth has come back to haunt you again. As you may have seen in the September issue, Harley-Davidson has come up with a 35th-anniversary edition of the Super Glide--we even used your inscrutable mug from Cycle's 1970 test of the original as a backdrop to one of the photos.

WHAT WE HAD HERE WAS A CLASSIC CASE of full moon, big campfire, beer in hand and firelight glinting off the chrome of motorcycles. A balmy mid-September breeze rustled dryly in the trees, bringing down a random leaf or two. Dogs barked in the village of Bridgeton, Indiana.

EVERYONE SMOKED WHEN I WAS LITTLE, giving me many opportunities to watch smoke rise from a cigarette. Initially, the hot combustion gas and particulates rose straight up from the burning end of the cigarette in a narrow column. Then the column began to oscillate from side to side, and finally broke up into swirling eddies.

You guys crack me up! I was excited to read the "Speed Wagons" article (CW, November), but you had me rolling on the floor with your total of 2000 miles in six weeks of riding. Sport-touring? I'd say your test was more like sissytouring! Come on, my last six-week ride (on a BMW) covered three times that distance!

Oakley Thump 2
$449
Oakley's original Thump, which incorporated a cord-free, solid-state, digital music player into the company's patented eyewear, broke new ground. Unfortunately, the Thump was a bit of a lump. Enter Thump 2, with its halved-in-size player built into "O Matter" Gascan frames. A full gigabyte (up from 512 MB) of flash memory provides storage for as many as 240 songs. Retailing for $449, the latest version is less costly, too. Oakley Inc., One Icon, Foothill Ranch, CA 92610; 949/951-0991; www.oakley.com

Nolan N-102z
$289
How to communicate with bank tellers and fast-food order-takers without first removing your helmet? With the modular N-102 from Italian lid-maker Nolan, you need only give a tug on the centrally located, dual-action release to go from full-face to open-face convenience. The new spoiler-equipped polycarbonate shell is more stable at speed than previous designs and featuies a hypo-allergenic liner that pops out far washing. Removable tinted Vision Protection System operates independently of the ratcheting anti-scratch shield, the latter supporting an included anti-fog insert. Solid colors cost $289; add $59 for Overland and Target graphics. Cima International, 399 Wall St. #L, Glendale Heights, IL 60139; 866/243-5638; www.nolan.it

THERE WAS ALWAYS that 5 percent. From the time Triumph took the plunge into the "real" sportbike world with its first lightweight, high-horsepower Daytona T595 and TT600, most everybody respected the British marque for having a go, but also thought it was completely nuts to try to go toe-to-toe with the Japanese in the ultra-competitive Open-class and middleweight segments.

The Yamaha MT-01 wowed us with its debut last year, as the 1670cc V-Twin-powered machine was remarkably faithful to the 1999 Tokyo Show bike. Well, check out its new stablemate, the MT-03. Based around Yamaha's long-running 660cc Single that's seen duty in everything from trailbikes to sportbikes and even is being used by Aprilia in its new Pegaso, the MT-03 takes styling cues from its big-shouldered brother, but in a smaller, more commuter-friendly package.

THE MODERN MOTORcycle disc brake began with 1960s experiments by English racer/engineer Peter Williams, was fitted to the 1969 Honda CB750 and saw industry-wide use by 1972. Early Japanese versions were 400-series stainless, 7mm thick and mated to massive (often iron) calipers; a complete front wheel and brakes could weigh more than 50 pounds!

BMW says the F800S is "ringing in the next round of its model offensive." Why, there's nothing offensive about the bike at all... Seriously, the first official photos of the middleweight parallel-Twin show what is a very unconventional bike for the German maker, which is to say its design is much more in line with that of conventional motorcycles!

FAMILIAR WITH ART DECO? No, I'm not talking about one of the mob bosses on The Sopranos. Art Deco is a distinctive form of styling that dominated industrial and commercial design between the mid-1920s and late 1930s. Evidently, Yamaha's designers are big fans of the style, because their newest model, the Star Roadliner, is a rolling showcase of Art Deco.

To people who pay attention to such matters, the term “Art Deco” conjures clear images of a specific type of classic design. But for the rest of us, what does that name mean and where did it come from? Though this category of styling originated at the turn of the 20th century, it didn’t gain prominence until 1925 at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes held in Paris.

Bruno de Prato
GRISO MEANS "grayish" in the Italian dialect of the region around Lake Lario, where Moto Guzzi is located. While it's true this doesn't seem to be a very exciting name for a motorcycle, there is a back story: Griso is the name of a gray-bearded evil-baron character in what is perhaps the most famous saga in Italian literature, "I Promessi Sposi" or "The Betrothed," which happens to be set in and around Guzzi's home town.

MOTORCYCLE manufacturers huff and puff over customer wants and needs, going to great lengths to point out how much bike buyers' desires and interests actually factor into the design, styling and pricing of the latest machines. At Victory, Minnesota-based Polaris Industries' hard-working two-wheel division, they call this the “voice of the customer.” “I think everyone who works here has ‘VOC’ tattooed on his forehead,” laughs Product Manager Steve Smith, who joined Polaris in 1996 and has been with Victory since the beginning.

THE STRATOSPHERE-IT NAMES this new Suzuki six-cylinder show bike, and it also describes the "high frontier"that strange, elevated part of the atmosphere beyond all weather, where ramjets can breathe. There are two contrasting ways to look at this motorcycle.

FEEL A LITTLE SELF-CONSCIOUS WALKING around in flashy roadrace boots that make people think you're a forgotten member of The Village People? Rather be seen off-bike in something a little more, say, low-key? With its Matrix Gore-Tex boots, Oxtar may have just what your feet yearn for.

WHAT DO YOU WEAR UNDER YOUR roadracing leathers? If you’re in the know, you dress in something that creates a thin, perspiration-wicking barrier between your skin and the suit to help keep body temperature constant. That way, you stay cool and collected when the on-track action heats up.

IT'S A ROUTINE OCCURRENCE IN TELEVISED GRAND PRIX coverage: A rider lowsides at triple-digit speeds, and the camera follows him as he tumbles and slides over hundreds of feet of asphalt, grass and pea-gravel-filled traps—only to get up, run over to his bike and try to straighten the clutch lever and kick the gear lever back into place.

DIRBIKING IS ROCKETING INTO THE FUTURE and leaving the good ol' days in the dust. Kawasaki is leading the charge, having dropped the long-running two-stroke KX125 from its 2006 lineup. I probably should be saddened by what appears to be the beginning of the end for two-strokes.

BRUNO DE PRATO
BACK TO IMOLA, WHERE IT ALL began 33 years ago with the first 200-miler. I could not think of a better place to acquaint myself with two of the new Ducati SportClassics: the Sport 1000 and the Paul Smart 1000 Limited Edition. The former pays homage to the 1973 750 Sport, while the latter celebrates the bike and the man who won the event that projected Ducati into a new dimension, giving the Bologna factory worldwide credibility in engineering and sporting performance.

KUSHITANI ROADRACING SUITS ARE AFectionately known around the CW offices as "leather pajamas" for their supple feel and comfortable fit. Much the same can be said about the Japanese gear-maker's GPR-series gloves, which suit our paws better right out of the box than some other brands after months of use.

I have a question that many of your readers may find interesting. By participating in the ever-increasing number of track days now available to the average rider, are we shortening the lifespan of our bikes? For instance, I will put about 500 miles on my 2003 Yamaha FZ1 this year at Barber Motorsports Park.

Bleeding the brakes on a motorcycle can be a frustrating, time-consuming process if you use. the traditional pump-the-lever/ pedal-and-open-the-bleeder technique. Which is why pressure or vacuum bleeders were invented. The vacuum type sucks new fluid down from the master cylinder through the bleeder valves on the calipers; a pressure type works in the opposite direction, pushing fluid up through the system and into the master cylinder through the caliper bleeders.

If you do much work on motorcycles, sooner or later you'll be in a situation where you have to pour oil or coolant into an opening in a hard-to-reach location, and none of the funnels available to you will get the job done. One funnel is too big, another too short, yet another too wide.
