Motorcycling is just about as good as it gets for a movie topic. In the decades since motorcycles and film have coexisted, there have been some magnificent pieces made—Easy Rider, Faster, and On Any Sunday marking just a few of the truly great ones.

As manufacturers compete to introduce the next great advancement in motocross technology, dirt bikes have been evolving at an almost exponential rate. After years of steady progression and improvement, today’s 45OCC four-strokes are the most technologically advanced motocross bikes to ever become available to the public.

ROAD GLIDE ULTRA

Andrew Bornhop
Folks who own Road Glide Ultras log more touring miles on their bikes than do any of Milwaukee’s other customers, so it’s understandable that The Motor Company took a couple of extra years to bring this popular big tourer back to market. And based on my recent daylong ride of a new 2016 Ultra along the Columbia River, I’d say this new FL-based machine has been worth the wait.

Andrew Bornhop
What's always welcome in a cruiser? Yep, more power. Which is precisely what the Softail Slim S and Fat Boy S have received for 2016. Harley has significantly upped the performance quotient of these Softails by equipping them with the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 11oci V-twin, an air-cooled engine formerly reserved for the CVO models.

An action photo in the lower right corner is yours truly aboard the Rob Muzzy-built ZX-7 that Doug Chandler rode to claim the '90 AMA Superbike title.

"Thank you for your opinion. Could you state your sources please?" That's Marine Corps Major Mark Thompson’s polite reply when he hears what might be bullshit. Thompson’s question applies perfectly to our sport. New riders, especially women and kids, are inundated with riding advice.

GPS is making me stupid. The problem is, when using it I'm never lost, but at the same time have no idea where I am. GPS has eliminated that annoying necessity of being aware of reality. When I use GPS, some lady I’ve never met tells me where to go.

Air-cooled cylinders (most especially two-stroke cylinders) and cylinder heads, plus all kinds of pistons, are especially liable to cracking because they run hot and are wracked by thermal as well as mechanical stress. At Talladega in 1971, my rider Cliff Carr put our H1R Kawasaki on the front row.

Weird things you notice getting on the H2 and taking a ride for the first time: The engine cranks longer than most new bikes before it starts. The idle has a loping growl, as though it is disinterested in that mode of operation. In certain light, the LCD information display is impossible to read.

Don Canet
“Tuono” used to mean only “thunder” in Italian. But ever since Aprilia applied the name to its first stripped superbike—the 2002 Tuono, a less-faired RSV Mille—it has also meant kick-ass naked bike. Every Tuono since the first has been massive fun and big thrills mixed with a dose of practicality rare at such a high level of performance.

Look at the new Triumph Thruxtons, and you see thoroughly updated modern classics, machines that embrace the appearance and aesthetics of café racers that were new a half-century ago. But if you look hard enough, you can also see something else: The new Triumph Motorcycles Ltd, John Bloor’s Triumph, embracing the heritage of the defunct Triumph Engineering Company, the original Triumph, in a way that it has never done before.

When we first got a chance to throw a leg over the 2015 Yamaha R1 at the bike's press launch at Sydney Motorsports Park in Australia, it was pretty much love at first ride. This was only reinforced when the “M” won the track portion of our September Turn & Burn shootout and then backed it up with a Ten Best award.

Q: I just picked up a beautiful 1982 Yamaha Virago 920 with under 10K miles. After putting 2,000 miles on it, I noticed the inside of the side cover calls for leaded regular. I know older BMWs need the valve seats changed for unleaded, but it never occurred to me that a 1982 bike may need it done also.
