Motorcycle enthusiasts are not often treated well in the theaters of America. There have been some good motorcycle films, sure, but usually movie people get bikes so wrong it's painful. Not so with The Best Bar in America, written, shot and directed by brothers Damon and Eric Ristau, whose previous experience was on documentaries and commercials.

I took one look at the new FZ-09 and thought, "Fazer!" For anyone familiar with Yamaha's mid-1980s' lineup, it is impossible not to see this bike as a Fazer 700 reborn, the sporty upright Four that had faux intake scoops like the V-Max. The FZX-700 employed a forward-leaning, 700cc, five-valve engine with downdraft carbs and an airbox where the tank normally was—cutting-edge at the time.

WHILE IT DIDN’T TAKE a crystal ball to predict that Yamaha was going to update its YZ250F for 2014, the fact that this popular machine has been so completely redesigned is totally refreshing. Gone is the carbureted old-style engine, replaced by an all-new mill with a straight intake, rear-inclined cylinder, four-valve head, wraparound exhaust and—yes, finally—fuel injection!

THE XR75, XR80, XRl00, CRF80/100 are as much responsible for introducing kids to motorcycling as the often-cited Honda 50. The biggest difference is that these bigger playbikes probably grab young riders a little later in age and larger in size.

HAVE A LOOK AT THIS engine cross-section line drawing. It purports to be a patent drawing of a “super streetbike” that Honda will build as a homologation special for the FIM Superbike World Championship. And it is said to be closely related to the production racer Honda plans to offer for sale to race teams for the 2014 MotoGP season.

SUZUKI chose the Indianapolis Grand Prix as the place to celebrate its first 50 years in the U.S. market and to reveal there a special-edition GSX-R1000. One hundred GSX-R1000SEs will be produced worldwide, each of which will be distinguished by a brilliantly polished and chromed chassis, unique “candy apple” blue wheel spokes (rims are machined and polished) and engine covers, and blue-anodized upper fork legs and other selected parts.

John L. Stein
That minuscule contact patch under your tires is a miracle worker, considering the grip it provides for acceleration, cornering and braking. And grip in cold, wet conditions is an even tougher task, one that Pirelli’s new Angel GT sport-touring radial seeks to address, while maintaining good durability.

MY FIRST YEAR IN MOTOGP, I was adamant I could ride the Yamaha like a Superbike. If I were on a Honda, maybe. But with the Yamaha, you really have to change your riding style. Ben Spies and Colin Edwards are more like Superbike style: Stop the bike and accelerate out. But I learned fast that I had to change.

Fight frostbite with Sedici HotWired Insoles ($69.99), whose flexible, lightweight, ultra-thin heating elements are laid out in such a way to evenly distribute "gentle" heat, lessening the likelihood of hotspots. Part of an “integrated heating system," the Insoles have a 12-volt direct connection to eliminate redundant cabling. Tip: Buy the controller.

Designed specifically for use with heated hand-grips, the waterproof REV’IT! Fusion GTX ($174.99) has a thin, breathable tri-fleece liner in the goatskin palm and insulating Thermolite Plus atop the hand to balance feel with warmth and protection. A laminated reflective cuff panel and an Index-finger faceshield wiper are smart touches.

FATE 3.0
$149.95
This pre-curved roadrace-style leather glove is lined with DuPont Kevlar across the back of the hand and fingers. A molded plastic palm slider and gauntlet wrist guard, plus beefy knuckle and finger armor, enhance protection, as well as style. I liked the ceramic-treated Pittards leather palm, but fit varied considerably between the left and right gloves.

SEDICI RAPIDO
$99.99
The Rapido has features usually reserved for far more expensive premium racing gloves. Keprotec-lined full-grain leather construction combined with molded palm/wrist sliders delivers track-worthy protection. Initial fit was good, but the knuckle cap chafed the top of my hand. The gauntlet is adjustable and fits best under, not over, a jacket sleeve.

RACER LIMES
$129.99
Likewise pre-curved, this extremely soft and supple glove shuns popular robo-look armor plating in favor of exceptional comfort and feel for the controls of a motorcycle. The goatskin palm with a Pittards leather insert delivers golf-glove-like sensitivity, while cowhide covers the back of hand and knuckle guard. Perforated fingers and wrist let digits breathe.

Let’s begin our downshifting discussion with this premise: The corner entry serves to get the bike ready to exit. For roadracers, exits last longer than entries, so perfecting the entry means maximizing speed onto the next straight. For street riders, rushing the entry of a corner and crossing the centerline or leaving the right edge of the road is disastrous in just about every way.

All my life I have been told by artier folk that engineering is cold and lifeless.

For $17,579, you get a tour-ready Harley that has light steering and a low seat (27.4 in. unladen), plus beautifully styled (although small) saddlebags and a touring windscreen that can be removed with magical ease.

At Laguna Seca, Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo was still recovering from his Assen and Sachsenring crashes (the latter allegedly caused by failure of a chassis sensor), Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa was still weak, having cracked his collarbone at Sachsenring, and Yamaha Tech 3’s Cal Crutchlow was still black and blue from his crash at the German track.

If we are going to continue to invest in MotoGP, we want to make sure there will be an opportunity to keep motorcycles at Indianapolis Motor Speedway beyond 2014. We’re going to invest about $100 million. This is a good time to fix the road course in a way that will make MotoGP riders feel comfortable, as well as make it useful long term for other motorsport.
