RISK
NOT BELIEVING IN THE POTENTIAL FOR SUECESS IS THE GREATEST FAILURE

MARK HOYER
Massive props to the folks at Victory and Polaris who green-lighted Project 156. It was huge in scope, ridiculous in time line, and fraught with consequence. Yet when Victory marketing folks Kyle Clack and Kevin Reilly walked into my office last December and asked if we’d like to go racing with a prototype V-twin engine, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb was the natural choice.

Your August issue cover story features “Hand-built” motorcycles. The article states, “Our sport’s future is right here.” What?! Have you guys been watching too many reruns of American Chopper and Junkyard Wars? Handbuilt? This article shows “garage engineering” at its best.

Blake Conner
You might not realize it, but BMW's S1000XR is really the bike you need, even if you don't like the tall "quasi ADV meets The Jetsons" appearance. But after you ride it, you realize that it speaks to your emotions and fires up your adrenal glands with its high-performance engine and incredibly capable chassis, which has an upright and commanding seating position.

Blake Conner
BMW is convinced there is still a big market for traditional twin-cylinder sport-touring machines. Of course, considering it invented the class with the original 1973 R90S, it would feel that way. The brand-new 2016 R1200RS is the sportiest BMW to ever wear the RS badge.

Manufacturers typically release a single all-new machine each year. But KTM isn't just any manufacturer. For 2016, the Austrian company has revamped the entire SX-F line with numerous improvements. The 2016 KTM 250 SX-F and 450 SX-F machines are fine-tuned second-generation versions of the popular Factory Edition bikes that were released late in 2014.

Andrew Bornhop
If you’re like us, you lusted after the original Honda XRV750 Africa Twin, the early V-twin-powered ADV bike based on the NXR750 that won the Paris-Dakar Rally four times in the late 1980s. And now that we know a new Africa Twin-the Honda CRF1000L-arrives early next year, here’s the question: Will this new Honda ADV have a similar legacy?

Forgive us, please, for the trendy Day-Glo colors that dotted our October 1990 issue-on the cover and in several layouts. Far more important, however, are the rare bikes that appeared on this cover: a Wankel-powered Norton F1 (“Norton’s Back!” Really?) and the 1991 Harley-Davidson Sturgis.

With this latest Ride Craft, I'm not trying to teach you a physical technique that can be mastered with correct practice. Rather, I seek to drive home this simple but important message: Don’t push time. This applies to all riders but particularly to riders who are always in a rush.

Some things are attractive; some things aren't. Although the difference between pretty and pretty ugly has at times impacted the course of history, we’re often at a loss to name exactly why something is attractive and something else ain’t.

Don Canet
While seated on a flat slab of granite I caught my breath and gathered my thoughts. Looming 1,000 feet above the barren landscape around me, Pikes Peak's 14,110-foot summit and our finish line were a mere 2 miles farther up the road. My heart was still racing even though our bid for the finish had come to a somber halt when the Victory Project 156 prototype V-twin racer hesitated under full throttle and then fell silent.

I WENT TO STURGIS, BUT NO ONE WAS THERE. THAT’S BECAUSE I WENT IN JUNE. THIS WASN’T BY ACCIDENT. A good half-dozen times I’ve attended the motorcycle rally that’s colloquially called Sturgis. Each time I come away with an unfulfilled curiosity about western South Dakota.

Q: I have a 2014 Triumph Tiger 800 "Roadie." The odometer only displays for the first couple of seconds when I start the bike. Only a tripmeter is visible after that. After reading through the owner’s manual, there doesn’t seem to be a way to have the odometer displayed full time.

DIRT QUAKE
“If you're daft enough to race it, we're dumb enough to let you."
[no value]
[no value]
Gary Inman
Dirt Quake is nominally a British concept imported into the Pacific Northwest. The idea is to demystify dirt-track racing by opening it to all comers while promoting the sport at every level and to a crowd it’s not currently reaching. The keystone of the event is the mantra: “If you’re daft enough to race it, we’re dumb enough to let you.”
