If you're a fan of Kevin Cameron's technical writing (who among us isn't?), buy this book. Classic Motorcycle Race Engines (408 pages; $48.95) explores 50 racing engines in great detail, from early Moto Guzzi Singles to the Kawasaki and Yamaha 750cc two-strokes that Cameron spent a decade building and tuning to the latest MotoGP machinery from Ducati, Honda and Yamaha. A snippet: "Much nonsense has been uttered with regard to Honda's racing engines of the 1960s—that they contained wondrous metals unknown to science, that they could not be successfully made today and so on. Like all of man's works, the fabulous Honda racers were imperfect."
