On the Front Cover: Racing Editor Chris Ulrich flew cross-country overnight from  a MotoAmerica race to ride the 2021 Honda CBR1000RR-R at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, California, north of Sacramento, on a Monday morning. Ulrich was impressed by the bike built for Honda’s latest World Superbike effort. But is it enough to make Honda win again in WSBK, and when will it show up in the USA? Photo by Drew Ruiz.
