Star motorcycles, a division of Yamaha, has just launched an all-new lineup of heavy metric cruisers under the moniker "Roadliner. " The big bike comes in three trim levels: Roadliner, Roadliner Midnight and the top-of-the-line Roadliner S. Soon to follow will be the Stratoliner, which will essentially be a fully equipped "bagger" version of the Roadliner series. The Roadliner is a turnkey factory bike with a truly custom, 1920's era, Art-Deco look about it. Directional and running lamps are teardrop-shaped units both front and rear, not unlike the taillamps of a 1959 Cadillac Eldorado.

With the vast number of sport-utility vehicles available for purchase, it would seem as though the QX56 is just another player in an overcrowded category. Look more closely and you'll find that pickings are slim in the $50,000 (or thereabouts) XL-sized luxury-utility group: the Hummer H2; Lincoln Navigator; GMC Yukon Denali XL; Toyota Land Cruiser; and Cadillac Escalade.

gregs@herald-mail.com Vanilla ice cream and hot fudge, Ozzie and Harriet, coffee and donuts. A few perfect couples. Awesome motorcycles and sweet cars might be another fine pair, said Tom Ward, president of the Mid Atlantic Impala Association and director of the fledgling United States Muscle Car Federation, both based in Winchester, Va. "The lines get blurred, you know. It's bikes and cars, cars and bikes, they can coexist together," said Ward, 35.
