NOT AGAIN!
WHEELS UP AT THE TRACK

MARK HOYER
I really don’t remember seeing anything except some grass clippings. They were flying through my field of vision that was pointed mostly skyward, but most of my attention was focused on just how long it was going to take my ass, working as a brake pad, to stop my 220-pound body from its 120-mph slide on the asphalt (and grass) at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Northern California.

The July CW cover shows El Solitario with face shield completely mudded over, yet mud flying from rear wheel indicates he’s still attempting to “ride.” He just might be “crazy,” but no one is crazy enough to ride blind! This nicely staged photo-op looks crazy-cool though.

CW FIRST RIDE 2018 BMW R nineT URBAN G/S
A roadster that longs for the dirt
[no value]

Sean MacDonald
BMW had no idea when it launched the R nineT in 2013 to commemorate Motorrad’s 90th anniversary that anyone would like it or that the bikes would sell. Four years later, it’s opened an entirely new market segment for the Bavarian brand, spawning four derivatives of the bike to create BMW’s Heritage line.

TWO-WHEEL CHATTER
TIP TWO-STROKE TECH ANALYSIS WILL KTM’S CLEAN TWO-STROKE MAKE IT TO THE STREET?
Transfer Port Fuel Injection deans up the dirty two-stroke. Let's hope there is a plated dual-sport bike coming soon to a dealer near you.

Kevin Cameron
Two-stroke lovers have dreamed of this day: when a major manufacturer applies modern technologies to produce powerful two-stroke bikes once more—with legal low emissions. Two-stroke road bikes pretty much disappeared in the US after 1984 because carbureted two-strokes must scavenge (refill, while pushing exhaust gas out) their cylinders with fuel-air mixture.

John L. Stein
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 54 percent of fatal motorcycle accidents involve collisions with other vehicles—which most of the time are at fault. Perhaps that’s because traditionally, avoiding motorcyclists has been done old-school, requiring drivers to take care and watch out—a seeming rarity on today’s roads.

A QUESTION OF BALANCE
THE SLOW-SPEED STRUGGLE
[no value]
[no value]
PETER JONES
Are there two types of balance for humans? One concerning how a human balances itself and the other concerning a human balancing itself on something else? I’m guessing there is because I’ve come to the conclusion, regarding the second type of balance, that we are not all created equal.

KEVIN CAMERON
Despite all the trick titanium bolts or the occasional connecting rod, carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP), and the odd bearing with silicon nitride balls, motor-cycles are still mostly made of steel and aluminum. Do you recall the promise of plastic car engines that one person could easily pick up?

Don Canet
Back in 2012 the final stretch of a once all-dirt road to the 14,115-foot summit of Pikes Peak was paved, and with this change of surface came a new chapter in the historic Race to the Clouds. As speeds increased and elapsed time up the 12.42-mile course plummeted, safety concerns arose.

SNATCHING THE "SUPER" RIGHT OUT OF SUPERBIKE
[no value]
[no value]
Blake Conner
AS SUPERBIKE RACING has evolved over the past four decades, almost every manufacturer that has participated in the sport has at one time or another built special homologation models to get an advantage within the scope of the rules. But in recent years, a few of those same brands have decided to push the boundaries beyond the restraints imposed by racing and built no-holds-barred trackbikes.

A CAFE RACER TOUR IN SEARCH OF THE QUINTESSENTIAL LA RIDING EXPERIENCE
[no value]
[no value]
Sean MacDonald
Café racers, with their sleek lines, beautiful bodywork, classic looks, and aggressive riding position, are what first drew me to motorcycles. I didn’t grow up around motorcycles, didn’t care about going off of jumps or around racetracks—I just wanted to feel free and cool and do something that was terrifying and exhilarating and fun.

CELL PHONES DON’T WORK IN RURAL NEW HAMPSHIRE, which is fine with Walt Siegl after 20 years of living and working in New York City. He’s nearly off the grid—and out of the hubbub where he founded Walt Siegl Motorcycles—but hardly out of the limelight.

The terror and beauty of the greatest race in the world

Mark Hoyer
By now we’ve all seen the bonkers videos of Isle of Man TT racers lapping at 130-mph average speeds, head-shaking or crashing between hedges and rock walls (if they are lucky), and generally defying the odds by running at the limit where a greater percentage of mistakes will end in death or serious injury.

RAY NIERLICH
Q: I ride a 2006 Suzuki DL650, which I lowered using a 3/4 lowering link on the rear suspension and by raising the fork legs in the triple tree an equal amount. I can flat foot when I stop, and with lowered footpegs the ergonomics are perfect. The new 2018 Suzuki DL1000 is on my short list for a new bike but is a little tall.
