DRASTIC TIMES, DRASTIC MEASURES. THE state of competition at Daytona this year has convinced me of one thing: AMA Pro racing in its current, convoluted form needs to be scrapped. It's time to pull the plug, power down the life support, start again.

THANK GOD FOR GENTLE NEW SLEEP aids that let people over 50 drift off into peaceful slumber and wake up feeling refreshed, or I'd be lying around all night twitching like a downed power line in a lightning storm. Which I mostly am, anyway, despite these wondrous pills that encourage butterflies to flutter around town, fly in your window and scatter the pixie dust of quietude on your brain like a dump-truck load of sand.

HOW DO PEOPLE DECIDE THE CORRECT balance between form and function? For years, large touring bikes had heavy, slow steering, and then aggressive companies began to apply their engineering knowledge to this problem. Shortly the market was flooded with lighter-steering machines.

Ducati-Branded Goods
$800
Planning to do some pedaling? Hitting the slopes? Are you a frequent flyer? Ducatisti, here's your chance to show your allegiance: Bianchi-built 900 Centaur bicycle ($3748), Burton snowboard ($800) and Tumi luggage ($250-535) all wear Ducati logos. For some time now, the Bologna-based bike-maker has been aligning itself with high-profile brands. Others examples include Aquila pens, Cromwell and Suomy helmets, Oakley sunglasses and Victorinox tools. Cool stuff, all.
Ducati North America
Pro-One Pro-Coolers
$280
Increase your big Twin's long-term reliability with a Pro-One billet-aluminum oil cooler. Cylindrical Pro-Coolers provide 360 degrees of flow-through circulation for lower oil temperatures. Chromed A/N-type fittings and a chromed billet-aluminum clamp are standard. Select either a polished end cap ($280) or a built-in temperature gauge ($320).
Ducati North America
Scott Genius Motocross Boots
$500
Luke Skywalker, eat your heart out! "Ready to roost right out of the box with no break-in period required" is but one of the many features found on the spacey new Scott Genius motocross boots ($500). Unconventional in construction and looks, the internal-bootie-equipped, three-buckle design uses DuPont Hytrel (a thermoplastic polyester elastomer) and Scott's Pivot System to allow full-range articulation without forgoing torsional rigidity.
Ducati North America
Attack Performance Foot Controls
$350
Does your late-model repli-racer need more cornering clearance? Attack Performance makes some of the finest lean-angle-enhancing rearset foot controls around, all CNC-machined from 7075-T6 billet aluminum. Select from fixed or fully adjustable models, with prices starting at $350.
Ducati North America
Speed Research Carbon-Fiber
$80
Compromise the quality of its carbon-fiber sportbike fenders, heel guards, sidepanels or exhaust and license-plate brackets by using cost-saving fiberglass fillers or polyester resins? Not Speed Research. Its products are created under intense heat in high-pressure steel molds using first-rate materials that enhance appearance and strength, as well as eliminate bluing, cracking, fading and yellowing. Prices start at $80.
Ducati North America
Einszett Autoplegesysteme
$6
Never heard of Einszett Autoplegesysteme? You're not alone. Until recently, the motorcycle-friendly, professional-quality care-car products from Germany's leading maker of cleaners, conditioners, lubricants, polishes and waxes were not available stateside. That's all changed now. To think it only took 70 years... Prices start at $6.
Ducati North America
Arlen Ness Big Shot Adjustable Fuel Injection Tuner
$250
Custom-bike-builder-extraordinaire Arlen Ness has an easy plug-n-play way to tune your EFI-equipped Harley-Davidson or Victory: the Big Shot Adjustable Fuel Injection Tuner ($250-$290). The compact module comes preloaded with a variety of base maps that can be fine-tuned to suit individual applications—no laptop computer or dynamometer required.
Ducati North America
iJet Wireless RF Remote Control
$40
Fumbling around inside the pocket of your jacket in an attempt to adjust the volume or select a different song on your iPod while riding your motorcycle isn’t such a swell idea. Besides, click wheels don’t respond well to gloved fingers. Solution to predicament is the iJet Wireless RF Remote Control ($40). As its name suggests, this compact unit wirelessly controls the following features: play, pause, volume up, volume down, track forward and track back. You can even power-down your iPod! Because it is water-resistant, the iJet can be mounted easily within reach out in the open using hook-and-loop tape or the supplied clip-atop your bike’s top triple-clamp or gas cap, for instance. Offered in black or white, the iJet is powered by two replaceable 3-volt batteries. A patented, 30pin pass-through connector lets you charge your iPod through the receiver. Cables for pairing with your home stereo are included.
Ducati North America
ZipWraps Automatic Earphone Retractor
$10
Put an end to frustrating stereo cord tangles with Zip Wraps Automatic Earphone Retractor ($10). Compatible with most earphones, the small disc-shaped device attaches in seconds. With a push of a button, excess cord quickly disappears. Choose from black/silver or white/silver.
Ducati North America
Jimi Wallet
$15
What's compact, water-resistant and a colorful alternative to traditional, often-bursting-at-the-seams leather wallets? The Jimi ($15), of course! Made in the USA from recycled plastic, the ultra-slim clamshell design holds only the necessities—five cards and a few bills—and the translucent shell (nine available colors) makes ID checking a fumble-free affair. Should you want to carry a bigger wad of cash, there's the JimiX ($16), which adds an external money clip. An accessory Multi Media Case ($9) and SD Card Clip ($6) are also available.
Ducati North America
Moose Racing Monarch Pass
$300
Don't let cold weather get a grip on you. Moose Racing's Monarch Pass off-road gear was recently redesigned to better protect dirt riders from the elements. High-tech eVENT fabric keeps wind and water at bay but lets perspiration pass through—keeping you dry from the inside out. Jackets ($300) are available in SM-3XL, pants ($200-220) in even waist sizes 30-48 inches. Gloves ($35) range from XS-3X.

ONE REASON THE rumor mill grinds out so many tales about BMW is that this is a company which could do just about anything. But what it usually does do is continue its established traditions, peppered with attractive novelties such as Telelever front suspension.

DUCATI IS A TYPICAL Italian motor company, like, Ferrari or Lamborghini. And like the two supercar specialists, its financial condition is traditionally very unstable, with glorious ups followed by downs of similar magnitude. Only this time the downs for Ducati lasted a bit too long and were a bit too deep.

Famed racer and hot-rodder Carroll Shelby is still up to his old tricks, this time teaming with custom-bike builder Rucker Performance to produce what the pair is calling "the ultimate American high-performance motorcycle." Said to rival the power-to-weight ratio of the legendary Shelby Cobra 427 S/C, the limited-production, Pro Stock-style two-wheeler will be built by Rucker under license.

Yamaha's "Power-Packed" Seca 650 Turbo blasted past photographer Ron Hussey's camera on the cover of this month's issue. Resplendent in muted silver with complementary red striping, the faired 653cc four-banger produced a claimed 85 horsepower and 54 foot-pounds of torque, its output boosted greatly above 5000 rpm by a tiny, fast-spinning Mitsubishi turbocharger.

UP: To Stotz Racing’s Glenn Stickels for setting the Pro Street Championship E.T. record aboard the team’s Honda CBR1000RR at the opening round of the AMA/ Prostar Drag Racing Championship at South Georgia Motorsports Park last March. Stickels piloted the turbocharged 460-plus-horsepower Honda to third place, but with a record 7.47-second E.T. The bike already holds the top-speed record with a 194-mph trap speed; remember, that’s in the quarter-mile!

Dear Phil: Sorry to miss you at Daytona, but I'm glad to hear your health is on the upswing. Highlight of the trip: They let me out on the track with New Blue for a couple of ceremonial laps early in the week. After dealing with a personal and temporary case of brain-fade right at the beginning, it was a complete blast, and I would have stayed out there all day if they hadn't started waving red flags at me.

HEAVY RAIN WAS FORECAST FOR THE MORNing of the launch of BMW's new-for-2007 K1200R Sport. Sure enough, when my alarm jolted me awake at 6:30 a.m., big drops were pouring in rapid succession out of the dark, gray sky. That same storm hit some three hours earlier in Newbury Park, California, home of Designworks USA, the squeaky-clean BMW-owned international consultanc firm that was hosting the introduction.

Buell Super TT
Unsprung hero

Mark Cernicky
When you start talking about an American-made motorcycle, some people still tend to think old-school design, iron and steel. But Buell has built and continues to build innovative American sportbikes meant to break that stereotype. The latest is the XB12STT, otherwise known as the Super TT. As the “12” suggests, power comes from the 1203cc version of the pushrod, air-cooled, 45-degree V-Twin that has provided motivation for the “big” Buells for several years now.

And while you will get no argument that there is a real attraction to Triumph's own version of this largeness—the Rocket III and its 2294cc Triple—recently riding the 865cc Speedmaster back-to-back with its massive brother did reveal some real benefits to living on the lighter, more compact side of the cruiser scale.

THINK BMWs, THINK TWINS, RIGHT? NOT SO fast, my absent-minded friends. There's the speedy laydown-Fours, of course, and for 2007 three new Singles from the Bavarians—the G650 X Challenge dual-purpose bike and the two bikes reported on here, the G650 X Country street-scrambler and the G650 X Moto, a supermoto-styled roadster.

VENERATION OF ANCESTORS is a well-established teaching in Japanese culture. It is also true that Japanese mythology holds material and spiritual existence inseparable. Therefore, objects as well as people of impressive character inspire the lives of many Japanese.

Choppers from the Blowtorch School of Design

PETER JONES
My attraction to choppers and bobbers is for their original, postwar concept of performance on the cheap. They were the first bikes whose attitude surpassed their engineering. In the 1940s and `50s bikes were overweight and underpowered, but forget about prototyping parts on a Bridgeport; an afternoon with a hacksaw and a six-pack was a "man's" route to creating a hopped-up machine.

BLAKE CONNER
HERE WAS A TIME WHEN A DUCATI Superbike ruled the high banks of Daytona, but Cook Neilson’s shock win on Cycle mag’s Old Blue project SS was 30 years ago. Soon after, Japan hit its racing stride. Sure, Ducati Desmoquattros raced on into the ’80s and ’90s but they labored to make power comparable to factory bikes from the Big Four and for a time even needed a significant displacement advantage/weight break to remain competitive.

RYAN DUDEK
KTM HAS JUST DELIVERED what every off-road enthusiast wants and needs whether they realize it or not: a dual-sport bike that is truly on par with real enduro bikes. So equal, in fact, that KTM insists that its new 450 EXC is not a dual-sporter but rather a full-on, no-bull enduro race-bike with a license plate.

CHRISTMAS WISH LISTS HAVE BEEN part of the holiday since St. Nick started making his rounds. Even so, it’s hard to beat getting a present you wanted but didn’t dare ask for. That’s how this evaluation begins, with a wife who’s seen her husband stage for a flat-track main on a borrowed bike, borrowed because his own machine exhausted the volunteer pushers; a wife who’s noted that hubby likes to pit next to or near a team with a remote starter.

THE FORCE OF A 170-MPH HEADWIND ROCKS my Shoei as I slip out from an invisible wake cut by the Yamaha YZF-R6 running a mere bikelength ahead. Momentum gained from working the famed Daytona draft allows me to edge by the rider from Slovenia a moment before flashing across the stripe and past an AMA official waving the white flag signaling one lap remaining.

Q I want to put a wider rear tire on my Suzuki M109R this year. The stock size is 240mm, but I would like to replace it with a 250 or 280mm tire. Is this possible without changing or modifying the wheel? I want to be FAT! Timothy Doolittle Pawling, New York A If that's your objective, I suggest you engage in a conscientiously applied program of Twinkies, Ding Dongs and long afternoons spent in a La-Z-Boy watching Jerry Springer.

As durable as modern drive chains are, they do eventually wear out. And if the chain is of the endless variety, installing a new one can be mildly challenging for the average rider. You can’t just pop off the old master link, thread the new chain into place and clip on a new master link; it takes a good chain breaking and riveting tool to install a new endless chain.

Q In the February, 2007, Service column, you answered Jim Lang’s question about his 1984 Honda VT700 (“Me and my Shadow”), which didn’t have good top-end power. This same thing recently happened to my Honda ST1100. It performed normally, including its fuel economy, at throttle settings of one-half or less, but it could barely break 100 mph on the top end, had sluggish acceleration at highway speeds and had difficulty maintaining speeds up the mountain grades in Colorado.

Q Could you explain (or at least speculate) on Honda's rationale for chopping off the tail of its new 8OOcc MotoGP bike? For years I have read that closing the air pocket with an appropriately shaped seat/tail-section is just as important, aerodynamically, as opening the gap with a properly designed fairing.
