CRASHING DOWN
THAT MOMENT YOU REALIZE YOU ARE NO LONGER RIDING THE MOTORCYCLE
[no value]
[no value]
MARK HOYER
As both my profession and a primary hobby, riding and living motorcycling occupies a huge portion of my brain space. Long stretches of my life have included riding more than 30,000 miles per year on motorcycles, most often going as fast as I thought was prudent.

I loved the article on the Lowbrow Customs road tripper (“Low and Slow Through Flyover Country,” May). I think it is the nicest-looking bagger on the road. Also, thanks for not talking up the “flyover” states too much. One of the benefits to living here is the lack of crowds...

CW FIRST RIDE 2017 SUZUKI GSX-R1000 TRACK CLUB SPECIAL
Riding the base-model 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 at Circuit of The Americas and on Hill Country roads around Austin
[no value]
[no value]
Mark Hoyer
Club roadracing in America was built on a foundation of 1986 Suzuki GSX-R75Os. Suzuki would call it the first racer replica, and it would be hard to argue with that. As such, the bike pretty much became the ignition point for the club-racing growth in America that followed its release.

CW FIRST RIDE 2017 HONDA CRF250L RALLY
Dreaming of big adventures on Honda’s latest small-displacement dual-sport
[no value]
[no value]
Jeff Allen
Honda suggests that small dualsport bikes will spend most of their life on the pavement. And maybe that’s true; they do make for fantastic daily commuters. That doesn’t mean their riders don’t still dream of big adventures and dusty trails though.

If intense off-road adventure is not fully your thing, then Honda’s updated CRF250L will suit your needs just fine. We followed up our ride on the Rally by taking the standard version down tight, twisting roads with broken asphalt and corners dusted with sand and gravel.

John L. Stein
Whether you're riding on Ninth Street, the New Jersey Turnpike, or the local track, getting and keeping your head in the game is essential for personal safety. Like, obviously! Fortunately, just as with circuit training at the gym, you can build your ability to concentrate by adopting certain practices, both off and on the bike.

PETER JONES
My main ride, which is a 2006 Suzuki GSX-R1000, has unpleasant handling dynamics in stock form. It steers a bit truckish. I bought my bike in California and then rode it directly to my home in the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina.

THE VERSATILE MOTORCYCLE
IS IT MAINLY ABOUT HOW WE FEEL?
[no value]
[no value]
KEVIN CAMERON
After its up-and-down history, what has the motorcycle become? For those of us who care, what are our motivations? All this has become pretty complicated. Read the articles on “The Motorcycle” in the catalog of the Guggenheim’s icon-breaking 1998 show featuring the motorcycle as art; they read like the authors are Freud, Jung, and Reich.

Paul d'Orléans
Normal. Status quo. Predictable. These words no longer apply to the motorcycle industry. Factories released annual model changes, pushing progress yearly, with never-ending leaps in engine or chassis design. That was progress; that was the future visible in a straight line from wherever you stood.

A MAD, MONSTROUS MOTUS
FULLER MOTO BUILDS A MEAN MOTORCYCLE
[no value]

Peter Jones
“Holy hell." “Sweet geezes, my shins are on fire.” Although I was straddling the Fuller Moto custom Motus when Brian Case, designer of Motus motorcycles, reached over and hit the start button, I wasn’t ready. The exhaust system on this beast is a pair of 2-into-1 headers that barely reach the firewall.

CHASING A FEELING
SOFT SCIENCE OF HARD PARTS: THREE TAKES ON THE CLASSIC TWIN.
[no value]

Sean MacDonald
There’s something beautiful about the simpler things in life. Maybe it’s because they offer respite from the rest of our complex world, or maybe it’s just because being lazy feels nice. But the older I get the more I learn to love the simple things and the way they clear the clutter from moments of my life.

SUPER MIDDLEWEIGHT MATCHUP
AN IMPROVED FORMER CW 10 BEST STANDARD MEETS THE NEW GUARD
[no value]

Don Canet
When Yamaha introduced its FZ-09 in 2014 it lent legs to an emerging supermiddleweight sport naked category. Having enjoyed stellar sales from the start, a significant component of the 847cc inline-triple’s recipe for success was the incredible performance value Yamaha offered at an astonishing $7,990.

HARLEY-DAVIDSON’S SPORT STANDARD MEETS THE BIKE THAT LIVENED A CATEGORY

Bradley Adams
You can count the number of bumps on Highway 74 with one hand. And Sean’s found one. I know that because I’m behind him when our FZ-07 meets the leading edge of that ball-size blemish in the road then tries valiantly to buck him from the saddle. Confidence peaks from behind the bars of the noticeably more composed Street Rod; I tuck in, roll the throttle back, and set after him.

Q: I just read an article by Kevin Cameron, “Should I Use Motorcycle Exhaust Wrap?” Is that statement about no wrap on titanium headers true? I have a 2006 Yamaha R6 trackbike with Sato Racing titanium full exhaust, fully wrapped with Thermo-Tec Cool-It wrap, and painted with their special protection paint.

AMERICAN EXPORT
Is 13-year-old American Damian Jigalov the next great hope for a US world champion? If he is, why is he racing in Italy?

Maria Guidotti
Kevin Schwantz’s road to becoming a legend began with leaving the US at age 21 to race in Europe. American Damian Jigalov is following the steps of his hero but with a difference: Jigalov is just 13 years old and 5 feet tall. At 77 pounds, he has to carry the maximum ballast required in the Italian championship, struggling to keep the pace on tracks that are completely new to him.
