2010 RAFFLE BIKES
HONDA CUB C100 a 1969 HONDA
Holly carlylE, Photographer You’ve seen plenty of Holly’s work in this magazine, with cover shoots of Neil Peart and Carson Daly. Last year, we also relied on Holly to capture the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and AMA Racing Championship Banquet. This month, she pointed her able lens at off-road racing legend Malcolm Smith.
1969 HONDA CB750 FOUR
davE tUcKEr, guest columnist Dave Tucker may be what some people consider a late bloomer. He started his motorcycling love affair in his mid-60s. That hasn’t slowed him down, however. Dave is on his fourth bike—this one a BMW GS—and is planning a riding trip to Alaska. Read more about how he got to where he is today on page 58.

Nora McdoNald, Production coordinator The CB360 is pointed toward the coast, cans tied ﬁrmly to the tailpipe, sappy and suggestive one-liners scrawled in soap on the 40-year-old fuel tank. Nora grips the bars, eyes ﬁxed forward. And the horizon rolls ever closer. Hang on, Mike. It’s going to be one heck of a ride.

JEN MUEcKE, designer Somewhere, Jen found a sucker who traded her a like-new DRZ supermoto bike for a 22-year-old Honda and something called a “Baghira.”
graNt ParsoNs, Managing Editor “Why do I need a car? I have the KLR for longer trips and the Moo-Scoot for around town. I think I’ll sell the car now and get something this fall.” That, kiddies, is the incantation for conjuring up a freak mid-May, two-week-long snow storm for central Ohio. MarK laPid, creative director Can you believe that Mark actually pulled off a one-for-two swap, trading his decidingly single-purpose supermoto for a do-it-all dual-sport and a “barely ridden” Honda Hawk GT for tearing up the twisties? There’s one born every minute. Bill KrEsNaK, government affairs Editor Krez was really, really jazzed to ride an AMA KTM National Dual Sport Trail Riding Series event until he found out the riders’ meeting wouldn’t be held in his living room and the start area wasn’t in his driveway. Oh well, back to Mech Warriors. JaMEs HoltEr, associate Editor New bike. ’Nuff said. other contributors include: Dave Hoenig, Jeff Kardas, Karen Harrison Photography, Dove Photography, Jeff Buchanan, Grogan Studios, Adam Kaempf, Tacoma MC, Motorcycle Safety Foundation, Hendrik von Kuenheim.
