MARK HOYER
THERE IS THAT MOMENT IN LIFE WHEN the light just switches on. In a flash, there is no doubt that every molecule of your being seeks one thing and one thing only: delicious movement of the kind only delivered by two wheels and an engine. It can happen the first time you see a motorcycle of distinction when you are very young (like it did for me) or it can happen the first time you take, or even get, a ride on a motorcycle.

BRUNO DEPRATO
WHEN THE BIG ECONOMIC CRISIS struck and the going got really tough for the motorcycle industry, the tough kept going. Honda upshifted and responded like the world leader that it is, redefining the sport to attract a new generation of riders and revitalize the battered old legion searching for a new direction after years of "new-and-improved" machines that have steadily grown more potent and, in some cases, less user-friendly.

FOR 15 YEARS, HONDA HAS DOMINATED THE Class 22 Pro Motorcycle division in SCORE competition on the Baja peninsula. But that streak finally came to an end this past June when the Kawasaki KX450F-mounted THR Motorsports Monster Energy team of Robby Bell, David Pearson and Steve Hengeveld crossed the finish line in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 two minutes and 28 seconds ahead of the JCR Honda team of Colton Udall, David Kamo and Tim Weigand.

If any of our readers were lusting for variety, this issue should have given them terminal goosebumps. In hawking a comparison between three sporty Twins—the Cagiva SS650, Kawasaki EX500 and Moto Guzzi V65 Lario— the cover brazenly asked, "Do you really need 4 cylinders, 100 hp and 160 mph?" Given today's near— 200-hp, 186-mph four-cylinder racebikes thinly disguised as street machines, it's apparent that we did.

Blake Conner
WHEN BMW UNVEILED THE LO RIDER Concept at the Milan motorcycle show in 2008 (Roundup, January, 2009), that design exercise was met with much enthusiasm. The idea was to produce a motorcycle that would not only break away from the company’s conservative image (a goal that the S1000RR has since clearly achieved) but also allow customers to select from a wide range of options.

"A shoulder injury is not really critical; you can break your shoulder and easily survive. But, after impacts to the head, it's the most-common roadracing injury and one with which we think riders are very familiar." "Full inflation fakes 45 milliseconds, and we guarantee five seconds of impact performance.

Paul Dean
TRIUMPH DOESN’T MAKE RIFLES OR other firearms, but the British company nonetheless appears to have BMW squarely in its crosshairs. Triumph recently announced the 2013 Trophy SE, a 1215cc fully loaded touring machine that seems designed to compete with BMW’s sport-oriented tourers—R1200RT and possibly even the K1600GTL and K1600GT—more than with Honda’s superslab-devouring Gold Wing.

AMERE 15 MONTHS AFTER its European debut, the Dorsoduro 1200 has received its first updates. Nothing radical, mind you, but definitely worth a blast up the fantastic road on Sicily’s 10,000-foot volcano, Mount Etna, for validation.I lucked out. My ride occurred on a perfect day just between two eruptions that coated the road with a thick layer of ash that would have made the road slick and treacherous.

I appreciate the wide variety of bikes you chose for “Characters” (July) and their broad range of appeal. I realized, however, that most any motorcycle can move the soul if you get out and experience it. Neither my Versys 650 nor ZX-10R move much of anything while parked in my garage.

WHEN I HOPPED ON MY BUELL ULYSSES last Tuesday evening to head into our Slimey Crud meeting, the bike fired right up as usual. Or maybe “exploded into action” is a better description. That big Sportster-based motor always starts with the calm precision of a couple of mortar rounds going off and then settles into a pounding and violent, “Hey, lemme outta here!” combustion cycle.

The long-running “oil-head” BMWR1200GS has held its own in an evermore-crowded adventure-bike marketplace, but the Germans are hard at work developing and testing its replacement. These recent spy shots show testers shaking down the next-generation GS and confirm the existence of the rumored liquid-cooled R1250GS (Cycle World, Roundup, December, 2011).

STEVE ANDERSON
HUSQVARNA HISTORY REACHES BACK 300 YEARS TO A SWEDISH ARSENAL founded in 1689, and it's arguably the oldest motorcycle company-as long as you add the fillip, "in continuous manufacture," as any executive would. After starting production of two-wheelers in 1903, Husky, located in neutral Sweden, didn't let mere World Wars get in the way of building bikes, and there were no terminal bankruptcies and later restarts as with a few other famous brands.

Somehow, in the process of giving the Husqvarna version of the Rotax/BMW F800 engine an extra 100cc, the engineers responsible did more: They gave it a character transplant. Ride Husky's Nuda and you'd swear it wasn't powered by anything derived from the somewhat staid parallel-Twin of the BMW F800.

HONDA IS HOT TO REGAIN ITS DOMINANCE IN THE 450CC MOTOcross class. How much so? Well, its 2013 CRF450R is almost completely new from the ground up; that's a pretty good measure of "hot." The people at Honda are so jazzed about the new 450 that they invited us to an early introduction at the Zaca Station MX track in California's Central Coast area.

WHEN IT COMES TO RACEBIKES, FASTER almost always is better, and that’s especially true with 250cc motocrossers. Since they don’t have nearly the sheer power of the big 450s, Lites-class machines can gain some serious advantages with even small improvements in engine performance.

AkrapoviČ Slip-On Line
$1453.95
Typical aftermarket slip-on exhaust systems are usually lighter than standard pipes, have a bit more growl and, hopefully, are styled to get your attention. As far as big performance gains go, well, don't get your hopes up. But there's nothing "typical" about Akrapoviá's Slip-On Line. In fact, the dual carbon-fiber mufflers developed for the 2011-12 Triumph Speed Triple (shown, $1453.95) and its even-racier brother, the Speed Triple R, are said to boost both horsepower (another 5.5 at 8650 rpm) and torque (3.4 more foot-pounds at 5650 rpm) using stock fuel-injection map ping. Plus, they weigh nearly 10 pounds less than stock. A 2-into-1 stainless-steel link pipe and retaining springs, carbon fiber mounting brackets and a header clamp are inclncluded.

Risk Racing Carbide Motocross Gloves
$29.99
If a top motocrosser were asked to build the perfect riding glove, what would be the end result? According to Risk Racing, you're looking at it: the all-new Carbide ($29.99; S-XXL). Developed with help from established glove-maker Novik, the lightweight, durable Carbide with its pre-curved fingers, reinforced thumb and single-layer palm is claimed to offer "superior movement, maximum breathability, best-possible gripping potential and increased flexibility."

ElementCase Vapor Dock
$119.95
The Bimota of iPhone docks? Gotta be the Element Case Vapor Dock (silver or black; $119.95). Like many parts on Bimotas, this charge/synch device is machined from billet aluminum; it also has a satin-like FLUX surface finish that is "soft" to the touch. Turn the dock over and you'll find smart details that include non-slip base pads and a large cable-management pocket that keeps your desktop clear. A cleverly engineered collet locks the 30-pin connector firmly in place. Finally, machined holes in the front of the dock work in conjunction with tuned air chambers to passively amplify sound from the phone's tiny external speakers.

Zerust Motorcycle Covers
$94.99
Riding season soon coming to a close? Keep your motorcycle in showroom condition during the winter months with a Zerust cover. Unlike conventional dust covers, Zerust is fitted with an Xfilm liner, which the manufacturer claims guards against corrosion by releasing an invisible, non-toxic, non-reactive and odorless vapor that protects aluminum, brass, copper, iron, nickel, steel and silver for up to five years. Zerust covers also resist water and are mold proof. Prices start at $94.99.

Streetmaster In-Frame Oil Cooler
$849
Modern Triumph Bonneville and Thruxton parallel-Twins are cooled by both air and oil. As such, they are fitted at the factory with a supplemental oil radiator of, ahem, questionable appearance. Here's a more-attractive, less-complex and an even-better-functioning option: the In-Frame Oil Cooler ($849; $749 with core exchange). Oil circulates through a replacement 4130-chromoly subframe, which, due to its larger surface area coupled with an increase in oil capacity of nearly 1 liter, reduced oil temperature in manufacturer testing by as much as 20 degrees Fahrenheit. The kit includes the powdercoated subframe assembly, fittings and oil lines, and is said to install in less than an hour using standard hand tools with no other modifications required.

Typical aftermarket slip-on exhaust systems are usually lighter than standard pipes, have a bit more growl and, hopefully, are styled to get your attention. As far as big performance gains go, well, don't get your hopes up.

WHEN DESCRIBING HOW TO PLAN A trip by motorcycle, CW Editor-at-Large Peter Egan once advised, "Take riding gear that doubles as rain gear." Well, that’s what we have here, and then some, with the "Twin Shell" Macna Chameleon jacket. Why Twin Shell or, as Macna calls the Chameleon, "two jackets in one"?

Q A few months ago, I purchased an exceptionally nice 2005 Harley-Davidson 1200 Sportster that only had 2300 miles on it. I really like the bike and am happy with it, but the one thing I want to change is the exhaust sound. My favorite bikes for sound are Ducatis, and because they are V-Twins like my Sportster, I’ve tried to get the same sound by using three different exhausts, but I haven’t had any success.

I personally want to thank you for your forthright explanation of countersteering (“Unintentional steering lock,” June) and your subsequent “end of discussion” follow-up to Mr. Sam Adair (July “Feedback Loop”), who strongly disagreed and called your description of countersteering “nonsense.” I enjoyed every word of your responses.

WE GO TO THE RACES BECAUSE THAT’S where the information is. Isn’t there information at new-model introductions? Yes, but it’s different: rehearsed, polished, edited for effect. At the races, the people who are making the future of the motorcycle are confronting real problems, right in plain sight.
