MIDWAY THROUGH THE BIG SOCAL NORton club ride, my 1954 BSA hot-rod sat beside the road, not going anywhere. I'd been taking it easy, as this was the bike's first real outing following an engine rebuild—turns out 18 years of breathing unfiltered smog had taken its toll on the classic 500cc one-lunger.

WHEN MY WIFE BARBARA AND I MOVED from California back to Wisconsin 16 years ago, we came up with a list of reasons to explain the move to those who were baffled. For instance: "You can cool your beer just by setting it outside the door in the winter," or, "I need at least five months of arctic hibernation so I can finish restoring my Norton." All in good fun, in a bleak sort of way, but two of our reasons for moving were actually quite serious: We wanted to be close to a couple of restaurants in Madison—Paisans, our favorite pizza place, and Smoky's Steakhouse, winner of many awards as one of the best steak houses in the U.S.

IF YOU THINK A MOMENT, YOU CAN SEE that exhaust valves lead hard lives. Spark ignites the fuel-air charge, temperature in the combustion chamber jumps up about 2600 degrees C and pressure with it to a peak of perhaps 1200 psi. Heat flows rapidly into all combustion-chamber surfaces, including the valves.

Again, I find myself in love with a beautiful Italian ("Ducati 1098," January) and must find a way to bring her into my life. Oh, sweet 1098, come home soon and hang with your older brother 996. Ducati, I can't thank you enough. Dave Longden Charlottesville, Virginia I welcome the new look of the latest Ducati over the industrial 999; it's rather Ferrari-esque.

Shift
Shift Faction Riding Gear
$33
Separate yourself from the rest of the pack crowding the starting gate by gearing up in Shift's new-for-2007 Faction line. Faderesistant, polyester diamondweave jerseys (S-XL sizes; $50), articulated X-Stretch pants (even waist sizes 28-38; $150) and breathable Clarino-palm gloves (S-XXL sizes; $33) are available in Black, Blue Camo, 24K, Red Camo or Agent Orange.
Shift
SnapLock RaceDeck
$3.49
Forget your bike, pimp your garage! SnapLock's rugged, modular RaceDeck flooring system is available in a dizzying array of colors and surface styles, including Diamond, CircleTrac, Free-Flow, Fast Deck, TuffShield, RaceDeck Pro and RaceDeck XL. The high-impact co-polymer squares snap together quickly and easily, and are impervious to chemicals and petroleum products. Persquare-foot pricing starts at $3.49.
Shift
McCuft
$20
If you have trouble topping off your bike's gas tank at the filling station without dribbling fuel all over the paint, you need a McCuff ($20). The patented molded-rubber sleeve slips over the business end of any pump nozzle (including those fitted with vapor-recovery boots) for a leak-free filler connection. A small waterproof polyester carrying case is included.
Shift
Advanced Performance Accessories Containment Systems
$50
Catch coolant, fuel or oil with an APA Containment System. Approved for competition use in AMA Pro Racing-sanctioned events, the lightweight, crush-proof, 150cc plastic tanks come with aluminum mounting brackets and feature the company's E-Z drain system. Vent tubing is available in seven colors. Prices start at $50.
Shift
Arai Vector and VX-Pro3
$408-$521
A helmet for all occasions? Make it two. Arai has introduced two new noggin protectors for 2007: the street-going Vector and the off-road-ready VX-Pro3. Replacement for the Astral-X, the Vector ($408-$521) takes the less-is-more approach, doing without some of the bells and whistles found on the company's top-of-the-line designs to permit lower pricing. The VX-Pro3 ($474-$588) gets a repositioned chinbar, an Emergency-Release Cheek Pad system and top-of-lid diffuser ventilation. Both helmets are DOT/Snell-approved and come with Arai's 5-year limited warranty.
Shift
OnGuard Mastiff 5019
$90
Lock it and leave it—your motorcycle, that is. OnGuard's Mastiff 5019 ($90) combines an X4 Power Quattro Bolt-equipped U-Lock with a 44-inch hardened-steel chain sheathed in a water-resistant cover. The four-bolt locking mechanism offers unparalleled "pull resistance" and protection from brute-force theft attempts. A laser-cut Micro-Light key features a small, built-in light with a highly focused beam to make locating the keyhole easy in the dark.
Shift
Marsee Tank Bags
$165 to $55
As far as Rex Marsee is concerned, it's in the bag. Marsee has released his all-new line of tank bags, and there's a size and style to fit just about any bike. The bags are hard-molded from fabric-covered, water-resistant EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) in 15-, 10-, 6- and 1.5-liter sizes, with a choice of magnetic or strap-mount attachment. Marsee also has provisions for mounting the 1.5-liter magnetic bag on plastic gas tanks, using separate magnets glued to the underside of the plastic! The two larger bags feature a unique injection-molded flip-up clear cover atop an accessory tray built into the lid for superb map visibility and quick-access storage of small items. Two egress ports allow routing of wiring for electronic equipment, and all bags have a bright silver lining that makes it easier to find smaller items in low-light conditions. The zip-off base on the three larger bags includes a clear vinyl pocket for separate map and document storage, and those three are available with Corona twist-off gas-cap mounts. The line even includes a 4-liter bag with a molded-in tunnel to bridge the gas-tank console on many Harley-Davidson models. Prices range from $165 to $55. Coronamount models run about $115-$130 more.
Shift
Otterbox Rugged Laptop Carrying Case
$170
Turning your motorcycle into a mobile office is easy with an Otterbox Laptop Carrying Case ($170). Simply drop—er, place—any PC with a screen up to 15 inches wide into the 16.3 × 14.5-inch case, lock the lid and your precious files are protected from dirt, moisture and shock.
Shift
Respro Hi-Viz Hump
$38
If your backpack blocks the reflective piping on your riding jacket, you're a candidate for a Respro Hi-Viz Hump. Designed to fit over packs ranging in size from 25-40 liters, the strap-down Hump is available in five styles: Plain ($38), Duo Tone ($43), Waterproof ($57), P15 Black Phosphor ($99) or P15 Flo Yellow Phosphor ($99). The latter two are equipped with battery powered light strips that, depending on your personal preference. either flash intermittently or emit a constant—and equally eye-catching—glow.

I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR rational super-charging to hit mass-production, and the builders of personal watercraft have done it first. Yes, yes, the Big Four built factory turbo bikes in the 1980s, but the tricky torque curve that comes with exhaust-driven turbo systems is no gift to street motorcycling.

Kevin Cameron
TIRES ACHIEVE A LARGE, traction-generating footprint by virtue of being a most flexible structure. This arises from the elasticity of rubber and the flexibility and tensile strength of a variety of structural fibers. The tire's fiber carcass is maintained in tension by inflating with air pressure, so that we can know the footprint's area to a first approximation by dividing inflation pressure into the load carried.

DOWN: To rapper Kanye West, for ripping off our man Evel Knievel. In a recent video, West calls himself Evel "Kanyevel" and wears a getup just like the legendary jumper used throughout his career. So the real Knievel sued. From the suit, about the "suit": "Evel Knievel's famous jumpsuit...is inherently distinctive, enjoys secondary meaning, is recognized both in the United States and worldwide as being associated with Evel Knievel." Monetary damages sought were unspecified.

KAWASAKI COULD have taken the easy way out with the third and latest member of its Vulcan 900 family, the new Vulcan 900 Custom, introduced in Texas' fabled Hill Country. The company already had its Vulcan 900 Classic (and a touring-oriented LT version), the result of extensive focus-group and market research.

I WAS GOING ON 48 HOURS WITHOUT MUCH SLEEP when I slipped into my riding gear, yet felt surprisingly rejuvenated and ready to ride. Having remained awake throughout a full day of air travel from Los Angeles to Johannesburg, South Africa, I landed smack dab in a double clutch of jet lag fueled by the anticipation of riding one of the most visually seductive Italian sportbikes I've ever laid eyes on.

When I think of Ducati's long history of sexy, smart motorcycles, I'm reminded of Isadora Duncan (she was a hot babe during the early 1900s) reportedly saying to George Bernard Shaw (a brilliant writer and ugly sot of the same period), "You and I should have a child because with my looks and your brains, think of how grand it would be." Ducatis possess exactly that perfect mix of bodacious and brilliant genes.

"So I weel say zis: You speed and your bikes are mine." His accent is ridiculously thick and the effect on a gaggle of fully grown men is predictable.

IF YOU'VE NEVER RIDDEN A ZX-14, you might think Kawasaki's go-fast Four is all about speed. Guess again. While the 170-horsepower ZX is capable of reaching a scorching top speed of 186 mph, it is also one of the most broadly focused and refined sportbikes on the road today.

BLAKE CONNER
THE CHOPPER IS AS GOOD AS DEAD. America has finally overdosed on obnoxious, over-the-top, sometimes hideous custom cruisers. Fads come and go but after decades of near anonymity, hiding in the hip underground counterculture, television has virtually killed off the chopper's "cool factor." When every doctor, dentist and lawyer on the block bought their midlife-crisis custom, the writing was on the wall.

WHY ARE WE ONLY TESTING THREE BIKES?" ASKED ONE OF our test riders. "That's all I could fit in my truck," was my immediate response. Okay, just joking. But the truth is that after all the major revisions the four Japanese 450cc MX bikes had received last year, the 2007 models weren't much different.

YOU'RE TIPPING YOUR BIKE INTO A CORNER WHEN you notice your fingers tightening around the grips and beads of sweat forming on your brow. To San Francisco Bay Area chiropractor Harry "Doc" Wong, these are messages that demand to be heeded. Ignore them, and the next message might carry all the subtlety of an earthquake.

IF YOU'VE EVER DONE MUCH LONG-distance riding, you know that your right wrist often tires before the rest of your body—especially on those dead-straight stretches of interstates and open highways. What's sorely needed is some simple way to rack up miles while giving your throttle hand a welcome rest.

This past September, I rode two 2007 Husqvarnas-a TE450 and a TE510-in the Cycle World Trek, a three-day annual industry dual-sport event held in the Sierra Nevada. The TEs, if you don't already know, are full-on, competition-quality enduro bikes that Husqvarna has managed to make 50-state street-legal.
