As a moto-journalist since 1984, I've witnessed motorcycle and tire technology soar each year ... but there hasn't been a commensurate decrease in crashes. And in 1986 I got scared: Senator John Danforth's legislation to limit horsepower had me imagining our sport decimated by politicians, and... 

The engine in your car is a four-stroke. And while most of today's motorcycle engines are four-stroke types as well, there are still some two-stroke engines out there, especially when it comes to scooters and off-road bikes. Chainsaws, outboard engines, and weed-whackers also use two-strokes....

Your suspension needs to be set to work properly in both directions with the amount of weight your... 

Adjusting your bike's chain won't make it any faster, but it's critical if you want your chain to last. It's fast, easy, and next to checking your own tire pressure it's one of the first things any home mechanic should learn. Too tight is as bad as too loose, but it'll only take minutes to get...
