One day, you chose. you gave walking or driving full-time got on a motorcycle. If you were very young when you did it, you may have had help from your family, but here you are, still caught in the wonder of moving on two wheels. And I am betting you are not uninformed of the risks involved. The dimension of the risk may be lost on youngsters, and even some of us more mature riders, but there is no doubt after the first time a young kid crashes his little motorcycle that the idea of what might...

RldMags.net amp www.Journal-Plaza.net No one likes to eat humble pie, but the staff of Cycle World is now gulping down several large slices of the stuff. In the Roundup section of our May issue, we ran an article titled MV Agusta F4 1000 R that actually was an edited v ersion of an older story on a 2007 MV Our European Editor, Bruno dePrato, intended to send us a story on the new 2010 F4 but accidently e-mailed the one on the older bike instead. In our rush to get the article to press, our...

Honda Cbr1ooorr

That's three Rs, mate, and like I said, only 21 horses less than the BMW. The CBR is what every Honda used to be known for transparent function, seamless control interface and a big tent we can all get under. On a chilly day at a cold racetrack, everybody instinctively wants to ride the Honda first. Cernicky did. Later in the day after warming up all the bikes and reaching a Zen state of acclimatization, he ran a best lap of 1 41.16 on the CBR nice but next to slowest of our six contestants....

Wire

Yzf Throttle Actuator

Throttle by wire has a long history in aviation and first appeared on some autos in the 1980s. Its advantage is that it permits computer throttle modulation, necessary in the operation of cruise-, traction- or stability-control and other such systems, without having to physically overcome a mechanical throttle linkage and the driver or rider operating it. Instead, the operator indicates with the throttle control the power level desired, and the computer system modifies this command according to...

It would be comforting to think that it follows the guidance of reason, but often enough it seems more like fashion. Why does technological change sometimes take so long Replaceable three-layer plain bearings were developed for heavy service in the large piston aircraft engines of WWII, and at war's end this was a mature technology, ready for adoption by the civilian world. Its use made sense, as it provided reliability, long life and easy resize-and-rebuild...

Bmw S1000rr With Akrapovic

Speaking of throttle-return springs, the one on the BMW is the stiffest, as well it should be you don't want to be whacking this one open willy-nilly, as its 176.3 horses a few ticks behind last month's reading are 21 more than the next closest bike Honda . With the Beemer's traction control set to Slick mode least obtrusive , our slowest rider was disappointed he couldn't muster enough speed to even get the system to activate at all far as he could tell anyway , while lenatsch says a liter...

Sucker Punch Sally Rims

Of a butterfly wing in the Amazon changes the weather in Des Moines, but nothing has more consequential echoes than the changing of a single part on a motorcycle. Swap your handlebars as I did for a more traditional Sixties' bend on my Triumph Scrambler last week and the ramifications proliferate. The bar-end weights on the stock bike have their anchors either pressed or glued in I can't get them out, at any rate , so now I need a new set of weights or else new grips to cover the unsightly...
