CYCLE WORLD GOES RACING WITH HAYDEN GILLIM

MARK HOYER
Cycle World believes in racing. We also believe in American racing and American racers. Which is why we've teamed up with young racer Hayden Gillim. Inspiration? Think Mert Lawwill in On Any Sunday roadracing and dirt tracking across America in his quest for the Grand National Championship.

Whoa! That was either the cheesiest cover you’ve ever had or the coolest. While trying to decide, I read “Hand Built,” “Get Dirty,” and “Norton Commando.” Since I’ve just finished rebuilding the transmission on my 750 Commando (a dirty “hand job,” so to speak), I concluded that’s an über-cool cover.

It is an odd occurrence that one of the most fun, distinctive, reliable, efficient, and just plain great motorcycle brands has been all but ignored in the US for 95 years. Moto Guzzi has survived to be the third-oldest continuously manufactured motorcycle company in the world, making it the European equivalent of Harley-Davidson.

A few years ago I swung a Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic into Peter Egan's hometown south of Madison, Wisconsin, and we proceeded to motor around the great roads in the southwestern part of the state. Peter owned a Road King at the time and asked on the ride if I'd like to swap bikes for a while.

At one point during the press introduction for the 2016 Yamaha FJR1300, talk turned to how time flies. And how, as we get older, events that seem like just a few years ago in fact transpired a decade or more beforehand. That’s sort of how it is with the Yamaha FJR1300.

Bradley Adams
“DON’T EXPECT IT TO HANDLE LIKE ANYTHING YOU’VE EVER RIDDEN BEFORE.” Those were the last words anyone told me before boarding a plane to Salt Lake City, Utah, where I’d have the chance to ride a Timbersled snowbike for the first time. Unfortunately, that was as far as the advice went, and nobody could tell me exactly what I could expect.

John L. Stein
With summer comes "The Sunday Riders." We drag our long-slumbering DRs and Softails, CBs and T120s out of the garage, inflate the tires, and have at it. It’s all good in the hood. But we’re also now a half year older and so are our tires, fluids, chain, brakes, lightbulbs, helmet, leathers—and skills.

What is real? We live in a complicated computer age of competing "realities," from gaming to Google glasses. It’s getting harder to know the really real from the somewhat real and the not actually at all real. I’m not the first to suggest this.

There are many criteria for deciding which motorcycles to include in a comparison test. Most are formulaic, having to do with market segment and engine size, but some are less tangible. One wouldn’t normally include the Ducati Scrambler Icon, Triumph Street Twin, and Yamaha FZ-07 in the same shootout because they’re so obviously different, but they do have two things in common: price and number of cylinders.

COULD YOU LIVE WITH A MOTORCYCLE AS YOUR SOLE MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION? Commuter, errand runner, weekend getaway tool? I’ve done it, and it’s not that big of a deal. Of course, I was in my 20s, lived in Southern California, and was single at the time, but nonetheless my trusty 1993 Honda CBR900RR and I navigated the insanity of Hollywood and not only survived but loved every second of it.

FLAT TRACK IS HOT RIGHT NOW. I have been around dirt ovals since the day I was born. I traveled across the country at just three weeks old to watch my father, Randy Texter, compete in the AMA Camel Pro Flat Track series. So this sport is all I know, but I love to see it grow and thought it would be enlightening to share just how easy and relatively inexpensive it is to set up a bike and start sliding sideways.

Q: I have a 2012 Sportster Iron 883 with an oil-slobbering issue. I bought it new back in 2013 and didn’t have any issues with it until last year after I installed a Vance & Hines Straightshots exhaust and an Arlen Ness Big Sucker intake kit. I’ve also had the bike re-flashed with a Stage I download and installed a set of NGK Iridium spark plugs.

Q: I have several Japanese two-strokes (singles, twins, and triples) from the late 1960s and early 1970s and have an issue that has plagued me on countless motorcycles, both new and old, over the decades. And I’ve never received an explanation that would seem to justify the sheer volume of instances I have run into this issue.

Tipped in at full lean, skirting a manhole cover and a thick white paint line flanking the gutter at the apex, I found it hard not to think about the many ways it could all go wrong in this true downtown street race. But I found solace in grip as the chassis loaded against generous positive camber...then lost that fleeting feeling when the crowned road dropped sharply away once the bike crested the centerline and skated across the far lane on the drive out.
