MARK HOYER
HOW MUCH IS SANITY WORTH? AND can it be maintained by the thousandth of an inch? Of course, sanity is worth a lot, and maintaining it is particularly important in these strange, troubled times. Everybody has their strategy. Mine is rebuilding old British vehicles so that they can be used for what they were intended: transportation.

EXCLUSIVE BMW K1600GT and GTL

KEVIN CAMERON
BMW is at last releasing edible tidbits about its new six-cylinder K1600GT and GTL super-tourers. Concept studies began in the fall of 2009, centering upon delivering maximum comfort and non-tiring smoothness. Why a Six—and an inline-Six at that?

SIX MONTHS AGO, WE COULDN’T possibly have predicted that the project now known officially as the Team Cycle World Attack Performance Yoshimura Suzuki AMA Pro American SuperBike would have blossomed the way it has. Initially, our goal was relatively straightforward: test the validity of the AMA Pro Racing American SuperBike rules instituted last season.

Blake Conner
ARTIST JODY WHITSELL HAS ONLY BEEN RIDING FOR TWO YEARS, BOTH DIRT AND street, but when she bought a very plain white Arai helmet, her son suggested she “Sharpie” it. An artist who normally specializes in colorful dog portraits, Whitsell felt this was her chance to step outside of the box and do something personal.

"Cycle World’s 10th Annual 10 Best Bikes of the Year Awards,” proclaimed the cover. The large “10 BEST” fonts in that headline were actually photo frames stuffed with a montage offering clues as to the 10 winners within. While it was Mr. Max out-muscling all comers to take the Best Super-bike honor, my leanings at the time tipped more toward the Yamaha FZ750 that claimed the Best 600-to-800cc Street award.

WHEN APRILIA UNVEILED THE SHIVER roadster powered by a modern 750cc, 90-degree V-Twin, company officials also announced that the same engine had been conceived to grow to 1200cc. At that time, the larger-displacement version was perceived as Aprilia’s weapon for launching its assault on the World Superbike crown.

Steve Natt
IT WAS AT A PREVIOUS PRESS INTROduction for Harley-Davidson's CVO (Custom Vehicle Operations) lineup where I first heard the term "Alpha Customer." It's an efficient shorthand description of the market-leading, high-discretionary-income rider most likely to buy a CVO motorcycle.

Don Canet
FROM A HEAD-ON FULL frontal view, Honda’s new-for-2011 PCX scooter can be easily mistaken for a pint-sized sportbike. While that fun visual trick may make an approaching PCX rider look like an adult straddling a Shetland pony or, better yet, a street-legal NSR125, the PCX is in fact a roomy midsize scooter, packing solid performance and fresh styling.

MOST OF US ARE CONTENT TO hone our mechanical skills and enjoy maintaining or modifying our bikes. In this, we tend to be pretty much equal, a community without class distinction—broke, rich or famous. But some people enter The Woods. Guys who go deep, compelled to engage the very raw materials and make stuff, like the Roadog or incomprehensible choppers or strange, ride-in-thecenter monowheels.

HOW CAN WE EVEN THINK ABOUT A “coolest motorcycle?” Coolest what motorcycle? Okay, there’s Steve McQueen’s Triumph (he had several), which is one kind of cool. Did General Patton have a chrome-plated, pearl-handled motorcycle? For me, “cool” comes down to ideas, not to shining by reflected light.

THE PETER WILLIAMS-DESIGNED Norton Monocoque 750 racer is really special, a project that I can only now truly appreciate after trying to design motorcycles for so long. Here we are not talking about styling but about brilliant engineering/product design, an essentially underpowered bike that could win races against bikes with up to 40 hp more because of its advanced conceptual engineering design.

I’m on the new, British-built Norton Commando 961 SE. Its fat bars twitch as I hit a crest in the road, and I feel good.

IS IT TIME TO SAY GOODBYE TO CARBURETORS FOREVER? IF THE excellent performance of the fuel-injection system on Kawasaki’s new KX250F is any indication, the answer is yes. But even though the bike’s Keihin EFI may steal the headlines, its new Showa Separate Function Fork (that has its springing and damping in separate chambers) comes in a close second.

PIRELLI’S MARKETING TEAM IS ON A roll. Sales of the Angel ST introduced last year have been exceptional, with feedback from customers indicating that the haloed figure molded into the tread positively influenced their decision to purchase these new sporttouring radials.

FEW PIECES OF SAFETY GEAR GET AS much attention as gloves. No surprise, really. After all, motorcyclists perform a great number of tasks with their hands, and good feel is tantamount to machine control. This is why so many riders place comfort and fit at the top of their lists when buying a pair of gloves.

Q I love my 2007 Suzuki Bandit 1250, but it does one thing that I do not like. If I take my hands off the handlebars, the front end will start to wiggle back and forth, and if I don’t grab the bars right away, the wiggling gets worse. I don’t know if this is dangerous, but it scares me.

When we tested Ducati’s Streetfighter S in 2009, we were so enamored with that naked superbike that we voted it Best Open Streetbike in our annual Ten Best Bikes of the Year awards. But shortly thereafter, we rode a base-model Streetfighter and were shocked to find that it had some bothersome fueling issues.

STEVEN L. THOMPSON
THE BRITS CALLED THEM “SCRATCHERS.” AND THROUGH THE MAGAZINE you’re holding now, back in the Sixties, we who read it for roadracing news got the word straight from the riders’ boots, as it were, and the word was that a Fast Guy on a GP bike at Brands Hatch scratched bits of his bike or himself on the pavement as he battled for position in Druids or Paddock Hill Bend or Clearways.
