THE RIDE FOR KIDS ORGANIZATION has been around for 29 years, raising some $60 million to benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. That makes motorcyclists the single-largest source of funding for childhood brain-tumor research—an especially noble pursuit given that, each day in the U.S., 11 families learn they have a child thus afflicted.

People look at BMW and see 100,000 employees. But only 3000 are motorcycle employees. And of that 3000, 1800 are plant people in Berlin. So, that leaves 1200 people to do everything else that Motorrad does around the world, including engineering.

The January “One-Bike Solution Shootout” was almost a waste of ink. Why do practical, everyday bikes have to be so damn ugly? What the heck is with these goofy-looking headlights mounted above those bird-beak front ends? You’ve got front fenders that hug the tire, but the back fender is way up in the air?

BREAKING A LONG TRADITION OF ALWAYS being in a hurry and accomplishing nothing, I finally managed to slow down last week and smell the roses. Okay, there weren’t any roses because it was late autumn, so I had to smell the bare brown fields of the Great Plains, some recently spread with fresh manure, but I still managed to engineer one whole extra day into a cross-country trip so I could take two-lane backroads instead of blasting down the Interstate.

LAST FALL, THE FIM ANNOUNCED THAT in 2014, MotoGP prototype machines will get five engines per rider, per season, instead of the present six. This means each engine must last 3.6 race weekends instead of the current three. Fuel quantity per race for prototypes is to be cut from 21 liters to 20.

IT WAS ERNEST HEMINGWAY'S PAL GERTRUDE STEIN, according to Wikipedia, who took her car to a Parisian shop to have some work done. Unimpressed by the repair, she complained to the shop owner, who then yelled at his young mechanic: "You are all a génération perdue!"— a lost generation.

A SMALL-ARMS RACE! WHAT FUN! (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH A SMALL ARMS race; behold the power of the hyphen!) The Kawasaki Ninja 250 had been the best-selling sportbike in the U.S. and pretty much ruled the 250cc sportbike class until the Honda CBR250R got here two seasons ago and dethroned it in a thrilling heads-up comparo (April, 2011) and, according to the most recent num ber, was slightly ahead in 2012 sales.

The U.S. motorcycle market peaked in 2005-6, when high home values and easy credit conspired to help drive sales of 1.1 million new bikes. But following the banking crisis and economic meltdown of 2008, that number has fallen precipitously, to 450,000 total sales in 2011—a drop of nearly 60 percent.

GREAT EXPLORERS HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON: an insatiable desire to see what is beyond their own familiar territory. In the motorcycling world, dual-sports give us the chance to explore well past where the pavement ends while being able to get to that trailhead legally and efficiently with the benefit of a license plate.

ONE OF THE PRIMARY APPEALS OF OWNing a small-displacement motorcycle is the savings such machines typically offer at the gas pump. To determine optimal mpg figures and see how these bikes compare in the real world, we laid out a 60-mile test loop comprised of equal parts freeway, rural and city riding.

ADMIT IT: RIDING DIRTBIKES ON THE street is fun. Problem is, it looks a bit awkward, like a dune buggy on asphalt. And there’s that whole no-license-plate thing. One solution? Convert your motocross bike into a chic café-style roadracer, which is precisely what Darrell Schneider, a well-known classic car restorer from Concord, California, has done with this head-turning GP250R. Inspired by the work of noted builders Roland Sands, Richard Pollock and Ron Wood, Schneider spent 14 months crafting the GP250R, which is based on his personal 2004 Honda CRF250R. “Those three guys just have cool style,” says Schneider.

MOST OF THE TIME, THE CW BRIGADE opts for full-face helmets, but there are times when preference and circumstance can dictate dropping the chin bar. Still, if you’ve ever taken a bee in the face, been sandblasted by high winds or pelted by rain, a shield-equipped open-face helmet like the HJC IS-33 is a great in-between solution.

ANDY GOLDFINE, HONCHO OF AEROSTICH, is a deeply philosophical man, which a glance at his catalog shows. Throughout the catalog is evidence of his belief that whatever motorcyclists need should be rugged, simple and as light as possible. Hence, it’s no surprise that Goldfine’s solution to the flat-tire problem includes his lightweight, built-to-spec Mini Compressor.

Attention, 2008-13 Kawasaki Concours 14 owners: Do you pack light for trips? Or maybe you’d just like your bike to have a sleeker profile. Either way, Corbin’s Slim Door Conversion ($393) reduces net capacity for each original-equipment, clamshell-type saddlebag from 35 to 27 liters, and overall width drops from 39 to 33 inches.

Skyline Jacket

Tired of looking like a...biker? Known for its design-oriented technical outerwear, Aether Apparel recently launched a motorcycle-specific line. Shown here: the hip-length Skyline ($650, S-XL sizes; Jet Black, Graphite, Total Eclipse or Discovery Green). This sleek, modern zip-up is said to be road-ready via a breathable, waterproof, abrasion-resistant nylon shell and removable, CE-certified D3O armor at the back, shoulders and elbows. Other functional features include zippered chest pockets and cuffs, and snap-down cargo pockets.

Ducati
$39.95
Want to visit Museo Ducati? Terrific idea. Including round-trip flights to Italy, hotels, food and other expenses, you’ll likely be north of five big ones per head. The alternative? Museo Ducati, just $39.95, a magnificent book from David Bull Publishing. Ducati Corse MotoGP press officer Chris Jonnum built the words, and internationally respected photographer Peter Harholdt provided the pictures. Twenty-five racebikes are featured, including those ridden by many iconic winners. The format shows the whole machine in profile, provides a paragraph of descriptive data and adds well-captioned photos portraying some of the most compelling engineering details. This is a wonderful book, a perfect solution for those of us who cannot afford an in-person visit to Museo Ducati.

Q I have a 2003 Suzuki Bandit 1200 with 27,000 miles on the odometer, and it has a weird problem that’s driving me nuts. Most of the time, it runs perfectly; but if I turn the throttle all the way open down around 2000 or 2500 rpm in any gear besides first or second, it “hiccups” like it’s skipping a tooth somewhere.

Ignition systems these days are so pointless as to be almost existential. Okay, bad joke, but thanks to the proliferation of electronic engine management, points-switched ignitions are virtually nonexistent on modern motorcycles.
