This issue was packed with great stories, highlighted by our test of the new ST1100 V-4, which appeared on our cover long before any police agencies got their hands on this Honda. Even though the ST had what we called "comparatively lazy frame geometry," we quickly fell in love with the pricey... 

These were the days for 600cc supersports: "Hot Damn!" the cover declared on the arrival of Kawasaki's all-new ZX-6. The little Ninja used its 36mm Keihin carbs to make 100 horses, spin to a then-astronomical 14,000-rpm redline, and run a super-solid 11.36-second quarter-mile, all while being a... 

Watch Out, World! That warning adorned an unusual cover featuring Team Roberts and its all-star lineup: manager Kenny Roberts and 500cc riders Wayne Rainey, Eddie Lawson, and 250cc rider John Kocinski. For the 1990 season, Roberts built a super team. In addition to bringing then-current 500 GP...

Senior Editor D. Randy Riggs, after riding an AMA-banned Yamaha TZ750 dirt-tracker: "If you and I, the spectators, are denied the chance to witness these magnificent motorcycles in action on the racetracks of this country, this AMA group has not only cheated us, they've robbed us blind." Kenny... 

Futureshock! Suzuki's stunning concept bike, the FalcoRustyco (Latin for "white falcon"), was prominent on the cover of this month's issue. Newsstand buyers were enamored with this sleek, center-hub-steered, 400cc square-Four with its unique hand controls and fluid-drive transmission. Decades...
