NOT THAT I'M AN EXPERT OR ANYTHING, but I have learned a few things by attending bike auctions over the past several years. The first is to know your limits, then stick to them. At the big Steve McQueen sale in 2006, prices were crazy but I was able to walk away with the least expensive thing of any real value, a 1920s wooden curio cabinet in which the King of Cool kept his toy motorcycles.

"WE'LL HAVE TO TAKE THOSE TOES OFF right about here," Dr. Richard Hill told me last week as he made a hatchet-like chopping motion with his hand. I looked at him for a silent moment and then he grinned. "Just kidding," he said, "but you did manage to get frostbite on three of your toes.

YEARS AGO, I ZOOMED AROUND THE city of Boston on a little Kawasaki 90 that I bought for insignificant money. Riding it was definitely cheaper than driving a car, and I could park it anywhere. I thought of that bike as I gazed into a Spanish magazine at Honda's CB125F, a very similar little runabout that seems to suit this moment of economic reverse.

The CB1000R shown in David Edwards' Up Front column ("Bike of the Year," April) really grabbed my attention. Why does Honda not sell this bike to Americans? Instead of bringing us the coolest streetfighter in their lineup, they decide we'd prefer a chopper called the Fury.

Alpinestars USA, Inc.
Skeletal Leather coat
$1200
What recession? This past February at the annual Dealernews International Powersports Dealer Expo, Alpinestars unveiled a staggering number of new products—63 to be precise. New designs were shown in categories as diverse as textile jackets, performance underwear, leather suits, luggage and shoes. The Italian company also unveiled its new MotoGP collection, a multiple-product collaboration with MotoGP rights-holder Dorna. Jaw-droppingly stunning is the new haute couture Nero line, the men's Skeletal Leather coat ($1200; chest sizes 44-60) and women's Paddock Leather jacket ($750; sizes 36-48) shown here.
Alpinestars USA, Inc.
MotoGP Rider Paddock Chair
$295
Sit in style, just like MotoGP's top riders. Fly-N-Cycle distributes M otoGP-branded products, such as the Rider Paddock Chair ($295) seen here, in the U.S. Among the chair's features: integrated shoulder and thigh supports, adjustable recline and tilt actions, a pneumatic height adjuster, carbon-fiber-effect vinyl upholstery and a chromed base with five swiveling casters.
Alpinestars USA, Inc.
Swift 2.0
$270
What do you get when you pair Axio's innovative and stylish molded backpacks and carryalls with 2006 MotoGP World Champion Nicky Hayden? The Axio Nicky Hayden 69 Signature Line, of course. The six-piece collection includes Ducati-inspired versions of the following products: Swift 2.0 ($270), Hybrid Softpack ($170), Rivet ($150), Sling Pack ($100), all-new Laptop Sleeve ($35) and Lunch Box ($20).
Alpinestars USA, Inc.
Teardrop Bags
$290
Seeking saddlebags for your twin-shock cruiser, such as the Harley-Davidson Dyna model pictured here? Saddlemen's Teardrop bags ($290; $300 with chrome studs) wrap around exposed suspension components for greater storage capacity with no need on most bikes to relocate the turnsignals. The external dimensions of each bag are 20.5 x 12 x 6.5 inches.
Alpinestars USA, Inc.
Shark EvoLine Helmet
$399 to $449
Two helmets in one? That's the concept behind the EvoLine, the latest lid from French helmet-maker Shark. This innovative modular design with its injected thermoplastic-resin shell is said to be the only helmet in the world to meet DOT and ECE 22-05 standards in both full-and open-face modes. Further, the EvoLine ($399 to $449; sizes XS-XL) features a retractable interior sun visor, plus a conventional, removable external faceshield.
Alpinestars USA, Inc.
TCX Comp 2 Boots
$270
A good pair off-road boots can cost, well, an arm and a leg. That's why TCX developed its Comp 2 ($270), a fully featured design that doesn't carry such a hefty price. The Comp 2 has the same Torsion Control System found on the top-of-the-line Pro 2, but without the inner booty, allowing easier ingress and egress. Other features include a leather/micro-fiber upper, dual-compound rubber sole, aluminum buckles and plastic protector plates in key impact zones.
Alpinestars USA, Inc.
Shock Doctor Eject Helmet Removal System
$70
Removing a competitor's helmet in the event of a crash is now a no-brainer for trackside medical personnel. Eject, Shock Doctor's helmet removal system, uses a compact air bladder that fits under the crown lining. A tube runs from the bladder to the base of the helmet. Inflating the bladder via the tube and supplied screwon squeeze bulb lifts the helmet off the wearer's head. Eject ($70) is mandatory for all AMA Supercross and Outdoor National Motocross Series riders.
Alpinestars USA, Inc.
Remote Front Brake Adjuster Kit
$223
Make on-the-fly adjustments to front-brake lever span with Brembo's Remote Ad juster Kit with Click by Wire system ($223). Simply roll the left-handlebar-mounted knurled aluminum wheel for ward or backward with your gloved thumb until you achieve the desired lever position. The kit comes with cable, clevis and flange, and is designed to fit late-model European and Japanese sportbikes. (Radial front brake master cylinder not included).
Alpinestars USA, Inc.
Scala Rider Q2
$220
Cardo Systems is taking on-bike communication to all-new heights. Not only does the compact, water-resistant Scala Rider Q2 ($220; $396 for two-rider MultiSet) fit virtually any full-or open-face helmet, it has a built-in FM radio, a noise-cancelling microphone, a jack for an MP3 player, self-adjusting volume and provides up to eight hours of talk time with passengers or fellow riders on a single charge. Further, Bluetooth technology allows wireless communication with a mobile phone and/or GPS.
Alpinestars USA, Inc.
Star RSD C-Note
$700
Compliments are always nice. Like when a fellow rider says your brand-new helmet looks like a hundred bucks. Thing is, Bell's RSD C-Note really does look like a $100 bill. That's because road-racer-turned-custom-bike-visionary Roland Sands did old Ben Franklin proud when he laid down the ornate filigreed graphics. Basis for the C-Note is the top-of-the-line Star with its DOTand Snell-certified TriMatrix (kevlar, carbon-fiber and fiberglass) composite shell and Velocity Flow Ventilation system. The C-Note ($700; XS-XXL) comes in a special gold box and is wrapped in a heavy cloth "money bag" produced for Bell by gearbag-maker Ogio.
Alpinestars USA, Inc.
Brake Rotors
$499
Add some bling to your late-model Harley-Davidson with RayGun rotors ($499 each). The company's proprietary "atomic-forging" process bombards the discs with metallic ions to create an extremely hard surface said to provide superior wear and resistance to corrosion. Guaranteed-for-life finishes include polished or satin chrome, light gold or gold.
Alpinestars USA, Inc.
MFW Adjustable Vario Footpegs
Fine-tuning the ergonomics on your late-model European or Japanese adventure bike, racer-replica or sport-touring model is easy with German parts-maker MFW's Adjustable Vario Footpegs. First, choose the machined aluminum rider and/or passenger brackets ($50) that fit your bike. Second, select "extension arm" length-23, 30 or 50mm ($55). Finally, pick a peg finish: Racing, Super Grip or Master Grip ($35 to $55). Index points every 45 degrees allow eight possible peg positions.
Alpinestars USA, Inc.
Racing Custom Exhaust Design Center
$130
Two Brothers Racing launched its Custom Exhaust Design Center at the Indy Dealer Expo. Using the online "visualizer," consumers can create their own unique exhaust systems. Canister materials range from brushed or polished aluminum to carbon-fiber or titanium. Muffler inlets and outlets, Torx endcap bolts and optional P-1 Power Tips come in seven anodized colors—blue, red, green, orange, gold, silver or black. Icing on the cake is a personalized badge. Cost for the service is $130 on top of the price of the pipe.

HANG AROUND LONG ENOUGH, and it's amazing the things you'll see. Not only is it astounding to ride a BMW with a normal turnsignal switch, it's a nearly out-of-body experience to ride one with 175 horsepower and a quick-shifter, for God's sake.

BMW is a changed company. No longer the last bastion of bearded Belstaffers bragging about reliability, the Bavarian Motor Werks is cranking out performance bikes without quirks. In fact, the S1000RR already competing in World Superbikes under the pilotage of Ruben Xaus and Troy Corser is based on this soon-to-be-released street version, which is surprisingly conventional in its layout.

UP: To Malcolm Smith, for taking a stand. These days, the off-road legend and co-star of the classic 1970 bike flick On Any Sunday is a multi-line motorcycle dealer in Riverside, California. Fed up with the Consumer Product Safety Commission's ban on youth-sized dirtbikes and ATVs due to an absurd interpretation of a lead-content law, Smith engaged in an act of civil disobedience: He sold two minibikes and an ATV For this, he faces fines of up to $300,000 and a 15-year stay in federal lock-up.

THE MONSTER MOTARD movement has bred some incredible motorcycles. The Ducati Hypermotard is one, and the KTM 950SM (sadly, now departed) is another. And you can count the BMW Megamoto among the incredibles. At first, it seemed like a bit of silliness, this whole giant motard thing.

CALAFAT? WHERE IS THAT? IT IS SPAIN'S SECOND-OLD-est roadrace circuit, an hour-and-a-half north of Barcelona, in the country's northeast. It was there where I rode the redesigned, lighter, faster 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000. Could the Hamamatsu Hardcore in the Superbike Department really improve Cycle World's 2008 choice for Best Open Streetbike, a bike that has also been AMA Superbike champion six straight times?

Four letters and an oft-misplaced hyphen, to a generation of sportbike enthusiasts, stand in for the whole: GSX-R. Launched—almost literally when you consider it induced a Saturn V-like awe—in 1985 from a company better known for its durable and conservative designs, the GSX-R sent the popularity of hard-core sportbikes (of which there was then actually one) and Suzuki straight into orbit.

THIS MOTORCYCLE IS ABOUT AS SUBTLE AS A brass-knuckled right hook—only it's time to update the knuckles to something more appropriate, like forged aluminum or carbon-fiber with chrome-moly inserts. Because just like the classic knuckle augmentation, the silhouette of Ducati's latest hi-po naked bike is familiar, yet a closer look reveals a serious departure from the Monster S4RS it replaces.

Dainese USA
Superfly Jacket
$799
[no value]
LEAVE IT TO THE ITALIANS TO MAKE safety gear look so cool. Dainese's Superfly jacket, in fact, doesn't look like safety gear at all. Exactly the point. Available in men's chest sizes 36 to 50 in brown 0.8mm-thick cowhide, the stylish Superfly comes standard with easily removable CE-approved composite shoulder and elbow armor, with space for an optional back protector.

WHEN SHOPPING FOR a bargain, there are a couple different aisles you can wander down; always remembering, of course, that there is a huge difference between cheap products and those that are a great bang-for-the-buck.Yamaha's new FZ6R definitely resides in the latter category.

DANGEROUS TERRITORY THIS, REMAKING ONE OF THE GREAT motorcycles of recent history. Introduced in 1999, the SV650 won instant acclaim, somehow managing to be all things to all riders. Beginners were drawn to its light weight and user-friendliness; experts loved its flickable chassis and rev-happy motor—more than a few SVs ended up going club roadracing.

REMINISCENT OF THE SINGLES OF THE '60s, SUZUKI'S TU250X not only looks like a classic of the era, it has the same simplicity that made those motorcycles comfortable, economical and easy riding. While the TU excels around town, don't be afraid to head out on the highway, as the air-cooled, 249cc, fuel-injected Single is capable of cruising at freeway-legal speeds.

WHEN THE BOYS RETURNED HOME FROM FIGHTING WWII, many found themselves understandably restless. So they got busy! A boom in babies was one result, but the Greatest Generation also gave birth to the bobber custom motorcycle. Harley-Davidson has borrowed from that stripped-down, minimalistic approach in creating its rabble-rousing Iron 883.

TED, WHO LIVES ACROSS the street, quit drinking for awhile there. Then one morning I spotted the ruddier, wobblier, happier Ted of yore rolling his trash cans to the curb, barefoot and in his trademark shorts, plastic cup in hand. "Dammit Ted," I said, "I thought you were on the wagon."

WHAT HAS CHANGED IN PROFESSIONAL American roadracing? What hasn't changed? One year ago,AMA Pro Racing was bought by Daytona Motorsports Group, associated with NASCAR. Early publication of new and more "democratic" competition rules was promised, but the actual outcome was a prolonged arm-wrestling match between DMG and U.S.

Q I have no explanation for something very unusual that happened to me more than a decade ago, and I've wondered about it ever since. I lived in Sioux Falls at the time and was on my way to the Sturgis rally on I-90 riding my 1990 H-D Electra Glide Classic.

Once upon a time, new BMWs were equipped with the nicest, most complete toolkits found on any production motorcycle. But that's not always the case these days; most Beemers now come with only a few basic tools. CruzTOOLS (www.cruztools.com), however, is helping to fill the void with its extensive RoadTech B1 toolkit (part #RTB1, $120).

Q In the April Service column, you responded to a letter from Henry Ruter ("Rich and flameless") whose 1981 Suzuki GS750L was running rich on the No. 2 cylinder. Your suggestions for possible causes were perfectly reasonable, but you overlooked the most obvious one: a leak in the diaphragm of the Suzuki's vacuum-operated fuel petcock.
