EVERY TIME YOU PUT ON YOUR PROTECtive gear, you are quietly accepting the fact that your ride may not end as planned. We accept this risk because of the exceptional rewards offered by riding motorcycles. The more we ride, the more experienced we get and, hopefully, the less likely we are to make an error that may lead to something terrible.

BLAKE CONNER
THAT PERIOD FROM THE LATE 1960s through the `70s was the golden age of motorcycling in America, an era characterized by simpler bikes and a market far less fragmented and specialized. Modern motorcycles are categorized into so many different niches—and have become so tailored to a singular purpose—that it makes you wonder what happened to the good ol' Universal Japanese Motorcycle, like Honda's CB550-1lOOs of yesteryear.

MATTHEW MILES
MINUTES AFTER RETIRED BANKER AND LONG-time motorcycle enthusiast Alan Wilzig won his four-year land-use battle in New York's Columbia County, he called in the paving trucks and began laying asphalt. That was two years ago, and now, his 40-foot-wide, 1.1-mile private circuit— plat de résistance being a 20-degree banked corner—is a smooth, black ribbon of tarmac crisply hemmed at elvery bend in orange and white.

Okay, Suzuki's forward-glimpsing Tokyo Show headliner, with its carbon-fiber monocoque bodywork and dual driven wheels, has never rolled off an assembly line in Hamamatsu.

YAMAHA IS WAKING UP. AT LAST October's Intermot Motorcycle Show in Cologne, Germany, the Japanese bike maker demonstrated modern "teaser marketing" with an enigmatic display of a new inline-three-cylinder engine between two wheels and a telescopic fork, with our imagination of the rest symbolized by a filigree of wires and plexiglass.

My priority is Superbike. I only agreed to replace injured Casey Stoner for two races in MotoGP because I'd lost touch in the championship with Max Biaggi and Marco Melandri. It was a good way for me to get more experience. The Bridgestone tires don't give much feedback.

HOW BADLY DO I WANT IT? THAT'S what racers ask themselves each time they suit up for a race. And when it gets down to one event remaining in a season, and a championship is up for grabs, "How badly do I want it?" can take on an intensity where emotions might rule intellect.

Bruno dePrato
THERE'S A LONG STORY behind Moto Guzzi's "small-block" 90-degree V-Twin, a.k.a. the V7. The engine started life in 1977 in the V35 and V50 with 350 and 500cc displacements. Originally plagued by a number of basic faults, the compact Twin finally reached positive maturity when it was enlarged to 650 and later 750cc.

First, as a longtime Harley rider, I find it a bit funny after 30 years of hearing how H-D is so hopelessly archaic with its undersquare motors that now we get to hear all about the geniuses at Honda bringing out an undersquare motor. That aside, I think this new Honda will be an important motorcycle.

THERE'S AN OLD SAYING, "BE CAREFUL what you wish for, because you just might get it." And this is never truer than when you mention to my friend Mike Mosiman that you're thinking about buying another motorcycle. His computer is on full Internet alert all day long (picture the boiler room of the HMS Royal Oak preparing for the Battle of Jutland), and he's never more than a few key taps away from total knowledge.

PETER JONES
I HATE STUNT RIDING. I MIGHT EVEN HATE STUNT RIDERS. THE so-called sport of stunting competition has, since its inception, been populated by uncultured sociopaths intent on destroying our sacred 120-year history of motorcycling. Stunt riders are basically highway criminals who've found a means to monetize their antisocial and illegal behavior.

In its potential as a global motorcycle sport, the XDL is suddenly ahead of the curve. It fits into emerging economies and evolving motorcycle cultures. The growing populations and exploding middle classes in Eastern nations have suddenly put motorcycles into the hands of multitudes who are begging for bike events in countries bereft of funds or real estate for roadracing facilities.

Like your average roadracing motorcycle, a professional stunt bike is a specialized machine that’s highly modified from stock. Some are fitted with full, custom-built steel cages that provide protection against the many low-speed falls that happen when developing tricks, as well as added degrees of steering lock for making the tightest turns possible.

JOHN BURNS
AFTER MAKING A BUNCH OF SIGNIFICANT UPGRADES TO ITS BEST-SELLING (in Europe) Multistrada line for 2013, Ducati invited the moto press to Bilbao, Spain, to sample its new wares—specifically, the 1200 S Touring. All four Multis (1200, 1200 S Touring, the new Granturismo and the Pikes Peak Edition) get a new, second-gen 11-degree DS Testastretta V-Twin claimed to make 5 percent more torque than before.

IF THERE EVER HAS BEEN A MOTORCYCLE COMPANY ACCUSED OF SERVING UP AN extra helping of high-performance sportbike goodness, Kawasaki is guilty as charged. After all, more is more. And once again, Kawasaki is convinced that bigger-is-better formula is the ticket to sales success in a market segment in which only European manufacturers Ducati (848 EVO), MV Agusta (F3 675) and Triumph (Daytona 675) have recently been willing to take risks.

zūmo 350LM
$699.99
If you’re in the market for a GPS receiver, you might want to take a close look at the Garmin zūmo 350LM. This lightweight, waterproof navigator has a glove-friendly, Bluetooth-compatible interface and is jam-packed with features that will help you get where you want to go on a bike or in a car. In addition to search, turn-by-turn navigation and traffic avoidance, plus new programs like Service History Log, lane assist with junction view and TrackBack, there’s BaseCamp, a free software program from Garmin that “allows users to create routes, waypoints and tracks from their computer and transfer them to the zūmo.” Lifetime map updates are included in the $699.99 MSRP.
Klim
How To Ride Off-Road Motorcycles
$27.99
Contrary to its title, “How To Ride Off-Road Motorcycles,” Gary LaPlante’s full-color, 176-page instructional guide isn’t just for the dirt set. In fact, when LaPlante, a lifelong rider who has competed in nearly every two-wheel motorized discipline, realized there was a need for “higher-quality, more practical, real-world motorcycle training,” he “began developing his own curriculum and started writing this book.” The resulting 21 chapters are chock-full of on-bike exercises, advice from industry leaders, “Tales from the Trail” and insights gleaned from five decades of riding experience. The $27.99 paperback is food for thought for anyone, regardless of age or on/off-road experience, who would like to become a better motorcyclist. Who among us doesn’t have that on the top of his or her to-do list?
Klim
CamSure Tie-Down Straps
$48.95
Bike loaded in your truck, van or trailer and ready to roll? Are you sure? Black+G ray’s CamSure Tie-Down Straps ($48.95) incorporate a unique clamping knob to “provide the security of a ratchet strap without complex mechanisms that eventually fail.” Manufactured in the U.S., the powdercoated gated latch hooks and 1.5-inchwide x 5.5-feet-long nylon straps are tested and load-rated at both 45-and 180-degree angles.

Q I come from a sport-touring background, so owning a cruiser-style bike is quite a change for me. One thing I’m having trouble with is the low-speed handling characteristics, specifically parking-lot speeds. The 2006 Yamaha Venture Royale my wife fell in love with (that passenger seat!) handles okay once it gets going, but before that, it’s a top-heavy, wobbly, handful of a bike that I’m uncomfortable with.

Do you like riding vintage bikes but get completely tired of the bull$#!t? Yeah, me, too. That’s why I bought back my 1974 Norton 850 Commando Roadster (he says without irony). After I sold this very Commando about 10 years ago, I’d done a couple of Velocettes (one of which I still own and love, even though it hurts me so) and enjoyed my now-sold ’58 Triumph Trophy, but between the more aged performance (or lack thereof) and lighting/reliability issues, I thought I’d step a bit forward in time and bought the Norton back.
