A CERTAIN SMUGNESS IS UNAVOIDABLE. While other, unenlightened motorists peel off, forced to replenish their fuel tanks with a highly flammable, petroleum-derived liquid-hydrocarbon mixture, you roll on aboard your ZEV (zero emissions vehicle), secure in the knowledge that the polar ice caps will melt not one extra iota because of your passage.

A VERY DANGEROUS THING HAPPENED TO me last month: I sold my 1953 Cadillac Fleetwood to a friend in California. His parents had one exactly like it when he was a kid, and he had to have the old Caddy as a keepsake and reminder of the era. So off it went to California.

As I PERFORMED THE PRESCRIBED MOtions on the Nautilus machines, I was careful to prevent the weight stack, rising and falling, from striking the unused weights below it. Exercise is boring, I thought. And then I thought of engine valves, opening and closing like the weight stack, and likewise having to be prevented from actually striking their seats.

I can remain silent no longer after seeing the tantalizing picture of the Honda CB1100F from the Tokyo Show (Up Front, December). What a beautiful bike! It has all the right shapes and exposed pieces. Best of all, that gorgeous air-cooled transverse-Four in all its naked glory.

Oakley Hijinx and Holeshot
$90-155
Oakley has come a long way since introducing its first productthe F-l handgrips-more than 30 years ago. New releases include the Hijinx sunglasses ($90-155) and Holeshot chronograph ($550-650). The O Matter-framed glasses are offered in a variety of colors and High Definition Optics lens tints, including polarized. Water resistant to a depth of 330 feet, the Swiss-made, quartz-movement Holeshot measures cumulative time, intermediate time and split time down to a 10th of a second. Six styles are offered, all with black bands made from Unobtainium, the same, sticky-when-wet material used to create the original grips.

Scorpion Exo Jackets
$150-428
Where do you fit on the “Abradium” scale? That depends on how and where you ride. Scorpion’s new line of leather-and-textile Exo jackets ($150-428) falls between 2 and 4 on said scale, the latter indicating the greatest form of protection available. All feature KwikWick liners (a synthetic material designed to pull moisture away from your body), Exo-Tec armor (ventilated CE-approved shoulder, elbow and back protection) and ExoStitch (double stitching to prevent seam failure) construction. Sized from S-XXL.
Kawasaki
Heat Demons Grip Warmers
$130
Warm your hands using your grips of choice. Unlike traditional designs, Heat Demons Grip Warmers install inside 7/8or l-inch handlebars. Temperature is four-way adjustable via a chrome ($130) or black ($110) control switch equipped with a closed-loop microprocessor.

HJC FS-10 Helmet
$250-260
Riding into a blinding sunset? Better pull over and swap faceshields. Unless you’re wearing HJC’s new FS10 ($250-260), in which case you simply slide forward the top-of-helmet bar that deploys the tinted SunShield. To retract the shield, press the adjoining button. It’s that simple. An anti-fog, UV-light-stopping AccuSight faceshield with tool-less RapidFire replacement system is standard, and the interior of the DOT-approved composite-fiberglass shell features a removable, washable, moisture-wicking, anti-bacterial SilverCool liner. Adjustable chin and forehead vents deliver cooling air on hot days. The FS-10 is available in XS-XXL sizes in a variety of colors and graphics.

con Honda chose Milan to surprise everybody with a new naked bike, the CB1000R. Chassis is a modded Europe-only 600 Hornet single-backbone unit, but power comes from a torque-rich 998cc inline-Four based on the 2007 CBR1000RR’s mill. Neatest tricks are the single-sided swingarm, radialmount calipers, a digital dash display and optional anti-lock brakes.

IN EUROPE, BMW’S best-selling model-and by no small margin-is the R1200GS adventure bike, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that a new stablemate, the F800GS, was shown in Milan. This is no simple re-skinning of the F800S roadster. In fact, the GS completely parts company from the S by having a tubular trellis-type frame instead of a twin-spar aluminum setup.

"The look of speed, the feel of Formula One, with more power than ever.” So read the copy accompanying a full test of the 1983 Suzuki Katana 1100. The styling was out there, the riding position aggressive, the $4599 price expensive, and the bike was said to be best suited to high-speed work.

TIME WAS STANDARD-STYLE bikes were regarded as motorcycling's plainvanilla machines. Sensible, lowglamour, general-purpose alternatives to sportbikes and cruisers. But the standard category has undergone a renaissance in recent years, branching into sub-categories populated with supermotos and adventure bikes and retros and streetfighters.

Considering what the B-King uses as a power source, you shouldn’t be surprised that it’s the undisputed king of naked bikes. But you might not know that it isn’t the first Suzuki to earn that distinction. A quartercentury ago, the GS1100E was the baddest bike on the block, able to dispatch all comers with a magical mixture of no-waiting low-end grunt, arm-straightening midrange torque and freebreathing top-end power.

IT’S A WONDER ANYTHING GETS ACCOMplished in Italy. The laid-back Mediterranean lifestyle-espresso breaks, cigarette breaks and looong lunches-doesn’t lend itself to feverish productivity. It also seems unfair to plant a motorcycle factory, as Bimota has done, Despite the distractions, Bimota is back in business, slowly churning out its hand-built, two-wheeled exotica in stark contrast to the buzzing production lines of Aprilia up the road in Noale or Ducati in Bologna.

Trailers are cool, too, until you realize that they make your driveway look like the Clampetts have moved in. How great would it be to have a trailer that fits in the trunk of your car or a corner of your garage until it’s needed?

Daily runners DO YOU PREFER TO KEEP A LOW PROfile once you’ve stepped away from your motorcycle? If so, you’ll appreciate the casual, understated styling of the Sidi Dohas. Most current sportbike-spec footwear, with their armored hinges, sculpted ramair ducts and large, snow-ski-style buckles, looks like robo-boots.

Want Kenan to know Sofuoglu’s the best World part Supersabout port-winning Honda CBR600RR? It’s not something that you can actually put a finger on-a screamer of an engine or silky-smooth suspension, for example. Rather, it’s the overall bike-building expertise of brothers Gerrit and Ronald ten Kate of Netherlands-based Ten Kate Racing.

Ql’m cle in 63, 1966 bought and my have first read motorcymultiple bike magazines every month ever since. I’ve ridden many miles and met lots of bikers of every kind, but I must have missed the issue in which the terms “hooligan bike” and “streetfighter” were coined.

When Husqvarna and KTM recently introduced real competiton-quality dual-purpose motorcycles, the prayers of many offroad riders—including me—finally were answered. Those bikes are pure enduro models equipped with just enough equipment to make them street-legal-EPA noise and emissions certification, horn, mirrors, speedometer, brake lights, etc. And, of course, turnsignals-which have proven too fragile and vulnerable on both brands.

It doesn’t take a rollaway tool chest and a degree in mechanical engineering to install the core in a tire’s valve stem, but there’s a bit more to that seemingly no-brainer task than you might think. Tighten the core too snugly and it can distort the neoprene seal or strip the threads; tighten it too little and the core could work its way loose.
