Church of MO: 1998 Yamaha YZ400F

Church of MO: 1998 Yamaha YZ400F

"Blah, blah, blah, bore and stroke, Genesis valve system, blah, blah, blah..."No offense to Ed Schielder, but I wanted to tell him to shut up. I could read the tech stuff later and the rain clouds were rolling in fast. The world-famous Carlsbad Raceway is not a place you want to test a new...

MO staffer and current MO contributor, Gabe Ets-Hokin called the Bavarian muscle bike a "Gorilla In A Tuxedo." It's an appropriate term, as the 1157cc inline-Four packs an approximately 140 hp and 80 lb-ft punch. Essentially a naked version of the K1200S, the lack of any substantial bodywork... 

Whoever said size matters clearly doesn't know what they are talking about. At least when it comes to motorcycles. The case in point is this Polini 910 Carena, the subject of this week's Church of MO feature. Still in existence today, Polini is an Italian company making miniature sportbikes —... 

It's big, it's heavy, and it's undeniably BMW. In this week's Church of MO, we're going back to 1998 to see how Billy Bartels got along with BMW's autobahn burner, the K1200RS. Today the K bikes are known as sport-touring machines known more for their touring abilities, but capable of handling a... 

This week on Church of MO, we turn the clock back to 1998 and the Yamaha TDM 850. Long before Yamaha's FZ-07 had the marketing department abuzz with the words "crossplane concept" in regards to its 270º firing order, the TDM 850 was already doing the same thing. In fact, it was doing it with... 

With the announcement of the new Honda CBR1000RR SP and SP2 at Intermot, as well as the standard CBR1000RR at EICMA 2016, we haven't been this excited about Honda's flagship literbike since, well, 2008, when the now outgoing model was first introduced to the world. So, for this Church of MO... 

Idle hands are the devil's workshop; idle lips are his mouthpiece. In those ancient days of MO, before the turn of the century, we were too damn busy to chisel down more than a few notes on our stone tablets at the launch of Ducati's first modern sport-touring motorcycle. That, or hackers, who... 

In 1923 Max Friz built ze first BMW Boxer, and it was good. Then there were two pesky wars that interrupted business for a few decades, but by the `50s things were back in semi-action. In 1970, BMW parted the Atlantic Ocean, and its new series of /5 air-cooled Boxers escaped to America. In 1993,...
