DECISION TIME. I STEPPED OUT OF DOORS with the usual morning cup of coffee grafted to my hand and looked at the sky, trying to gauge the weather. The sky was a glorious blue in all directions, but it was chilly and windy. So, ride or take the car? That was the question.

TODAY’S SOPHISTICATED ELECTRONIC fuel-injection traces its origin to the Bendix Electrojector system of 50 years ago. During WWII Bendix made thousands of injection carburetors for aircraft engines, then built mechanical direct fuel-injection systems for late-model B-29s.

The depth of Kevin Cameron’s Daytona coverage was fabulous (see “High Banks, Big Questions,” CW, June). His ability to sift through the petty politics and ego defense that perennially infect racing is remarkable enough, but to do so while offering holographic insight on the nuts and bolts-and to couch it all in measured prose that seems effortless-deserves major praise.

Sixty8 collection
Triumph
Scorpio TRS-6 Transceiver
$99
Operating your Scorpio SR-i500 alarm just got easier thanks to the $99 TRS-6 transceiver. Smaller and lighter than the previous unit, the rechargeable, one-piece, four-button design is impactand waterproof, and boasts a half-mile range. A battery charger is included.
Triumph
Tankbag
$140
All tankbags are not created equal. Consider, for example, the $140 Axio Tankbag, which features the company’s trademark hard outer shell, an expandable 420-denier nylon base with a hidden storage tray and a waterproof map pocket. Magnets secure bag to bike. Got a plastic gas tank? No problem; straps are provided, too, enabling conversion to a backpack off the bike. Choose from Gloss Red, Carbon Finish, Silver or Electric Blue. Add a snap-on Tek-Pak ($40) for additional carrying capacity.
Triumph
OtterBox for iPod
$20 to $50
Protect your expensive iPod and its priceless multimedia contents while traveling with the rugged, virtually indestructible OtterBox. Dirt-, dropand waterproof, the molded-polycarbonate unit features a front-of-case interactive membrane for gloveson click-wheel access. Prices range from $20 to $50, depending on the model.
Triumph
Spidi Lizard Pro Suit
$1099
Attention ladies: Do you feel like your on-track apparel options are limited to street-oriented two-piece leathers orhide your bank book!custom suits? Spidi has a solution. The one-piece Lizard Pro ($1099) is manufactured from the same 1.2mm-thick topgrain leather as its highend men’s suits and has many of the same features, including elasticized panels, speed hump, CE-certified “biomechanic” armor and “bi-phase” knee sliders. Difference is, in sizes 42-48, it’s made to fit a woman’s shape.
Triumph
M4 exhaust system
$897
Which M4 exhaust system best suits your brand-new Suzuki GSX-R600? If it’s fitted with numberplates, then you’ll likely want the full system, which features equal-length, tapered headers in either high-temp black-powdercoated stainless-steel ($897) or titanium ($1296). If, however, you’re a daily commuter and weekend backroad rider, opt for the slip-on, also available in stainless ($514) or Ti ($596), which retains the standard pre-muffler and requires no EFI re-work.
Triumph
Techmount Accessory Mounting System
$60
If you want to safely mount a cell phone, GPS, radar detector, satellite radio, toll-road transponder or video camera on your motorcycle, you need a Techmount Accessory Mounting System. Manufactured in the good ol’ U.S. of A., the high-quality, fully adjustable designs are machined from 6061 T6 aluminum, then anodized or chromed, and use stainless-steel hardware. Select from six mounting styles. Prices start at $60.
Triumph
Clear View Solution
$13
Faceshields lead tough lives. As our windows to the world of motorcycling, they are subject to the worst Mother Nature can chuck in their direction. Factor in bugs, sand and road debris, and the likely result is a less-than-stellar view of the road ahead. TP’s Clear View Solution ($13) can’t alter the weather or clear city streets, but it will clean your faceshield without scratching or altering its optics. The specially formulated, alcohol-free solution comes in an “unbreake” 1-ounce bottle along with a soft, cotton cleaning cloth. It all stows in a tidy, snap-close vinyl storage pouch that takes up no more space in a jacket pocket, saddlebag or tankbag than an eyeglasses case.

IS EVOLUTION AT WORK in the realm of the standard-style motorcycle, or are these new-age adventure/megamotard standards the work of Dr. Frankenstein? Whether this is a case of only the strong surviving or a careful mixing of parts from similar creatures, the resulting motorcycle gene sequences appear to have what it takes to make it in an ever-changing two-wheel world.

Word is finally out, and spy photos be damned, the 2007 Honda CRF450R motocrosser doesn’t get twin pipes, fuel-injection or a wholesale redesign after all. It did, however, receive plenty of smaller changes that might just keep this five-time Ten Best Bikes winner tops for another year.

WHY DROP THE Displacement of MotoGP to 800cc? The series is successful, and despite recent ominous grid attrition, there remain enough participants to make a show. Or should we begin with the question, “Why 990 in the first place?” In my opinion, that was chosen to make sure that even hastily prepared four-strokes could prevail over the previous 500cc two-strokes.

Talk about getting your money’s worth. For just $1.50, you got four full tests, two street and two offroad. The coverbike, a Kawasaki GPz550, was given this enticing conclusion: “A hot-rodded version of what was already a high-performance bike."

OKAY, WE'VE BEEN over the two-stroke/ four-stroke thing more than once, so pay attention: Even though "diesels" appear to be taking over, strokers are far from being on the endangered species list. One ride on the 2006 KTM 300 XC proves that two-strokes still have a place, and what better place than on the trails or the track or, hey, maybe even in your garage.

IT’S BEEN 35 YEARS SINCE THE RELEASE OF the Ducati GT750-the most historically significant model in the company’s history. That bike put Bologna on the moto-map in 1971 when Fabio Taglioni, predicting market trends were heading toward large-displacement motorcycles, took his existing sohc, two-valve, single-cylinder design, doubled it up and turned it into Ducati’s first 90-degree V-Twin.

During that same era, he successfully raced and won in World Sports Cars, Indy Cars, Trans-Am, Can-Am, even NASCAR (five-time winner of the Riverside 500-miler), standing on top of the podium 49 times in 306 starts.

OUR LAST LONG-TERM Buell testbike, a midNineties Thunder-bolt S2, proved more maintenance-intensive than a desperate housewife. Although the sport-touring-oriented S2 was an amiable pack mule when all was well, over time it developed a laundry list of issues ranging from spittin' screws and a blown head gasket to high oil consumption and cracked bodywork, the latter caused by poor fit and excessive engine vibration.

IF YOU HAVE EVER RIDDEN A MOTORcycle in a group or with a passenger, you know how difficult clear communication can be. Does that hand signal mean, "I've got to pee," "I need gas" or "That way to China"? Hard to tell. Additionally, there are dangers on the road, situations when a little voice in your ear, with the right message, could reduce your risk on the motorcycle.

YOU'VE BEEN THERE, SO HAVE WE. You leave an o'dark-thirty wake-up with plans of hitting the road early and making some miles before it gets too hot. Departure is delayed, however, when you reach the bike and discover dew all over it-or worse, an overnight rain shower has really doused things.

SOME SUGGEST THAT ONLY LARGE COMPAnies can innovate because only they can afford original research and the development that exploits it. Others claim only small companies can innovate because of their agility and tolerance for the creative personalities who sicken in large organizations.

Q While trailering my new 2006 Harley-Davidson Road Glide to the Ozarks from distant West Texas, the handlebar rotated downward into the tank, allowing the bike to lean over and rub against the trailer. All tolled, the damage to the bike was just under $1800.

What’s that they say about your chickens coming home to roost? There I was, a few short days before the inaugural Legends of the Motorcycle Invitational Concours d’Elegance with a motorcycle that wouldn’t start, its battery as flat as day-old soda pop.

Changing tires and fixing flats are two jobs rarely found on anyone’s list of Favorite Things to Do. Flat repairs can be especially aggravating when they have to be performed in the middle of an enduro or fun trail ride. Using their first-hand experience with such matters, the off-road riders at Motion Pro (www.

Q A short article at RealTechNews (www.realtechnews.com) links to a much longer article that explains how acetone can boost fuel mileage in cars. It would be interesting to see if such a boost can be had with motorcycles, too. My Yamaha Seca II gets about 60 mpg right now, but with the rise in gas prices, it would be nifty to increase that by 10 or so more mpg.

Ever had an oil filter come loose and douse the underside of your bike-and the rear tire—with a couple quarts of engine lube? If you’re lucky enough to remain upright, you then hope that the engine suffered no internal damage. This happens more frequently than you might think.
