“I'LL MEET YOU IN MARFA, TEXAS,” I told my friend Mike Mosiman, “if I can ever get out of Wisconsin.” It wouldn’t be easy. We’d had two blizzards in three days, and my driveway was sculpted in drifts and hollows like some frozen treat from Dairy Queen.

WHEN I WAS BUT A CALLOW YOUTH, I volunteered to “help” a friend who had just bought a Yamaha TD1-B, which was that company’s 1965 250cc production roadracer. My project was to increase compression and thereby, I fondly hoped, increase power as well.

“The English Experience” by Peter Jones (CW, May) made me recall with laughter my own English experience. In the spring of 1970,I walked into the Yamaha/BSA shop to buy a part for my reliable 1967 350 Yamaha, and there sat two 1970 BSA Firebird Scramblers.

Puig Racing Screens
$80
Better wind protection, improved aerodynamics and a stellar-looking sportbike? That’s asking for a lot.

Weighing less and offering even better optical clarity, 2mm racing versions are also available. Prices start at $80. OFD Racing, 4805 Calle Alto, Camarillo, CA 93012; 877/428-9633; www.puigusa.com

Mustang DayTripper Seat

Hide low and look cool without getting saddle sore. That’s the idea behind the DayTripper, a one-piece seat that incorporates Mustang’s advanced comfort technology. The result is a lean, contoured shape that’s good for both rider and passenger. Detailed stitch work makes for a real head-turner while the soft, synthetic cover resists sun, wind and rain.

Think of this Gilera Fuoco as an upsized Piaggio MP3. It is the same basic leaning three-wheel scooter concept, but powered by a 500cc Single (replacing the 250cc) and with a larger chassis and stronger suspension. Price in Europe is about $10,300.

JUST WHEN WE THOUGHT we'd seen every three-wheeled, motorcycle-based vehicle in existence, up pops the Brudeli 625L. Judging by the photos, this KTM-Single-powered “leaner” could be the coolest and most entertaining yet. Developed in Scandinavia by design house Hareide Designmill, the Brudeli (www.brudelitech.com) is pitched as a motorcycle/ATV hybrid, much like the recently tested Can-Am Spyder (CW, April).

That Hydraulic Innovations built a diesel hydrostatic-drive bob-job should come as no surprise.

A test-packed issue featured the brand-new Honda V45 Sabre on the cover. This 750cc V-Four shared powerplants with the also-new V45 Magna, considered more of a custom than the sporty Sabre. Honda’s liquidcooled V-Four was like nothing that came before it.

DOWN: To Yamaha, for holding out on us! Debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show this past spring were the WR250X supermoto streetbike with 17-inch wheels (pictured) and a dual-sport version of the same platform called the WR250R. Although WR in name, these bikes appear mechanically unrelated to the full-on enduros we get state-side.

JUST INSIDE THE GATES at the Moto Guzzi factory in Mandello del Lario is a giant wall poster of Sean Connery astride a ’70s-era Eldorado police model. It’s an iconic image. When I was there last summer, just below the poster was parked this new version, the California Vintage, providing a strange echo across the decades.

WE'RE THE LUCKY DOGS WHO RIDE EVERY BIKE, EVERYWHERE, EVERY year. Each sales season we pick the Ten Best, selecting a winner for categories such as Superbike, Cruiser, Sport-Tourer...you get the idea. Over the decades the categories have shifted with the market, but ingredients of the winning bikes remained constant: a magical combination of parts creating a motorcycle that drops us to ours knees to give thanks to the gods of internal combustion.

MY MIDDLE-AGED BROTHER-IN-LAW WAS BITTEN BY the sportbike bug a few years back. As the granddad of a dozen and counting, he stood little chance of my big sis allowing a sleek, seductive supersport mistress to enter the family fold. My recommendation at the time resulted in the purchase of Yamaha’s then newly introduced FZ1.

MARK HOYER THE IDEA OF ADVENTURE-TOURING OFTEN OUTSTRIPS THE reality. When faced with the image portrayed by bikes like the BMW R1200GS, say, we envision ourselves crossing the Sahara in a very Stephane Peterhansel kind of way (albeit slower), fully loaded with sleeping roll, tent, extra fuel and perhaps a revolver tucked away somewhere for protection from bandits.

EUROPE HAS BEEN THE CENTER OF SO MANY CONFLICTS that historians can barely keep track of them. One of the key strategic locations is Italy’s South Tyrol. This gateway to the “boot” has over the years been controlled by the Romans, conquered by Napoleon, ruled by Austria and since 1919 been a part of Italy.

WHEN IT COMES TO CRUISERS, MUCH LIKE YOU, WE ARE manly men. Supersize us. We want cylinder bores you can stick a boot through. Torque numbers that would do a tugboat proud. Bigger is better. Greater is grander. More is mo’ better. Or is it? One of the unfortunate byproducts of big-inch cruiser motors has been an accompanying increase in overall vehicle weight and size.

EVIDENTLY, KAWASAKI HAS SOME CALENDAR ISSUES. The company introduced its all-new KLX450R to the press in late March, calling the bike a 2008 model, but then had units in showrooms just a few weeks later. In my book, that makes it a 2007 model.

WHEN THE INTERNAL-COMBUSTION ENGINE FIRST SHOWED it could move vehicles, it was embraced most passionately by the French. Conservative Germany was offended by the noise, smoke and unconventionality. England-likewise home to structured living-responded with the infamous Red Flag Law, which held back motor vehicle development for years: All self-propelled vehicles on public highways were limited to a maximum speed of 4 mph and had to be preceded by a man on foot waving a red flag to warn oncoming horse-drawn vehicles!

BEING LOST MAKES FOR AN ENTERtaining TV series, but it’s no fun when it happens to you. Between poorly marked roads, unexpected detours and inane directions from locals (“Go past Joe Wilson’s place and turn left where the old schoolhouse used to be”), it’s easy to lose your way, even if you’re an experienced traveler.

THERE ARE DAYS WHEN I THINK I'D BE HAPPY TO have AMA-managed roadracing just continue as it always has—like an underpowered airplane, moving but not quite able to rise off the runway, seemingly capable of greater things, yet never actually attaining greatness.

Q I've decided to ask you a question that's been bothering me for quite some time. Why do current inline-Fours and other across-the-frame engines have their intake systems in the back and the exhausts in the front? In your reply in the April Service column regarding cylinderhead design ("Out with the new"), you explained that air does not like to turn corners; so if the intakes were at the front of the engine, the path to the cylinder would be as straight as possible.

Setting out to “fix” the quick Kawasaki ZX-10R isn’t exactly an easy task. There wasn’t a lot wrong with our Ten Best-winning 2006 testbike, particularly with the engine. But we like to play. So in an effort to boost engine output using simple bolt-on or plug-in parts, we obtained a programmable Kawasaki race-kit ECU ($1404), a LeoVince Factory Slip-On stainless pipe/titanium silencer combo ($1037) and a Uni Filter foam air filter ($27).
