• Talking technical
Our Can-Am went… but before it did we put lights on it. This is how we did it, other bikes could benefit too.
• Smith tales
More from the man who’s been there, seen it, done it, got the T-shirt… and the trophies… and the world championships.

…the American ISDT stars. There’s a lot of them and Norm Dewitt has the enviable task of corralling the lot into one feature.
• Dirt talk
This is it, this is where you get to say what you think, are we doing it right? Are we doing it wrong, tell us here.
• Moto memories
MotoCross says ‘glitzy glamour’. This, however, is ‘scrambling’ which suggests mud, more mud and, yes, even more mud.
• Wright or wrong
Oh boy, does Wrighty stir it up! This time though he’s in agreement with the progress trials has just made… sanity returns to the feet-up world.
• Hot Honda
There’s a lot of plastic bodywork on an Evo MXer, luckily Rad Fismistr is a plastics expert… he’s done a pretty god job of the rest of the bike too.
• Original and unrestored
First in our occasional series of bikes that remained unrestored, such as this Francis-Barnett trials bike. This is how they were.

Development never really stops for a works rider and a little thing like the factory closing 30 years ago is a minor detail.
• Hot Husky
Chris Montignani tells of a CR250 Husqvarna inspired by family connections.
• You need…
…one of these in your shed. Maybe you don’t realise it, but you do! Drool over this JBR Honda.
• Montesa Cappra
Sometimes a pic will arrive in the inbox and the comment “d’you like my bike?” accompanies it. Oh yes Simon, we do like your bike.

Put a bunch of Evo bikes together with two of the top riders from the era and see what happens – this time the Mono Yamaha, arguably the very start of it all.

Honda’s RTL250 was never a mainstream motorcycle but it was always desirable. It worked well too.
