DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- In the black leather, exhaust pipe extravaganza known as Bike Week, close to a half-million motorcycle enthusiasts descended on this city of about 63,000 residents to partake of the engine revving, beer drinking and girlfriend flaunting of biker lore.Bars still post "No Colors" signs that forbid patrons from wearing identifying jackets that could provoke brawls between rival motorcycle clubs. Contests held throughout the city and the rest of Volusia County's coast during the annual 10-day event that ends today cater to the taste of the rough: "Ladies arm wrestling," "Biggest beer belly," "Great cleavage," "Best tattoo" and "Bikini pull-off."

The unusual heat didn't slow down the Easy Riders 4H Club while participating in a gymkhana show at the Harford Furnace Equestrian Center in Bel Air recently. The riders and their well-trained horses competed in different activities and obstacle courses while being timed and earning prizes. Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, Simon Says and a Cake Walk were all part of the show and after a well deserved break for everyone, the girls and their costumed horses walked around the outdoor ring for treats.

Any time you're watching a motorcycle chase and you feel as if you're sitting on the handlebars, any time the sun flares across the composition of a romantic scene and seems to warm the lovers' bodies, any time black and white lighting molds old storefronts into eloquent portraiture, you're witnessing the legacy of Laszlo Kovacs, the Hungarian-born cinematographer whose fearless approach to filmmaking energized directors as different as Robert Altman, Bob...

There's a moment in the soon-to-arrive youth anthem "Bodies, Rest & Motion" when Nick, footloose and fancy-dead, stops at a gas station late at night after a fruitless search for his past (and possibly, therefore, his future) and notices an easy rider on a motorcycle refueling, heavy with purpose.It's a majestic movie moment, because it says so much about generations heading in opposite directions without making much contact. It's made all the more poignant by the fact that one of the things Nick is fleeing is his girlfriend, Beth, who is played by Bridget Fonda, the avatar of "Generation X," that group of disaffected twentysomethings attracting so much media attention of late.

"Forrest Gump" is a genuine runaway Hollywood-type movie hit. Which doesn't make any sense at all.It has almost no sex. No fun violence. No Ah-nuld.It's about a guy with an IQ of 75 who becomes, as only Hollywood could envision him, the best of his generation, the very generation that tout le monde is sick to death of hearing about.This is a hit?People who had seen "Gump" insisted that I had to go because it was the history of my life and times. Well, I don't mind telling you I was skeptical.

Give spring fashion an A.That's A for A-line, the prevailing shape for women's skirts, coats and dresses this season.If the A-line looks a bit familiar, it should. Though it is closely associated with the youthful, kicky clothes of the '60s, the A-line silhouette actually made its debut in 1955. It was the brainchild of the late French designer Christian Dior, who also built collections around the H shape and the Y shape.It was another eight years before the A-line came into its own, though, thanks to young, forward-thinking French designers such as Andre Courreges and Pierre Cardin.

Two images collided head-on yesterday, as thousands of Harley-Davidson riders rumbled into Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, temporarily turning the infield into a giant biker bar. One image - upon which the motorcycle company is built - was of black leather jackets, tattoos and tales of life on the open road. All were displayed as the company marked its forthcoming 100th anniversary with a noisy festival of music and exhibits. But another potent image was clearly in evidence at the track yesterday.

Horseback riding isn't any more dangerous than most other sports, but with paddocks buzzing these days with the thirtysomething set looking for a little challenge with their exercise routines, the number of incidents may be on the rise.Although the fall that broke actor Christopher Reeve's neck two weeks ago has been described as "one of those freak things," sprains, broken bones and separated shoulders are not uncommon among inexperienced adults who have glorified visions of leaping over fences.

Laszlo Kovacs, the Hungarian-born cinematographer who found international fame after treating the American landscape as a character in the landmark 1969 movie Easy Rider, has died. He was 74. Mr. Kovacs, a Budapest film student who came to the United States as a political refugee in 1957, died in his sleep Sunday at his Beverly Hills, Calif., home. His work on Paper Moon was considered a masterpiece of black-and-white photography. In a career that spanned five decades and more than 70 feature films, he also put his stamp on Five Easy Pieces and Shampoo.

It's a quiet, drizzly Sunday morning when the Jet Set motor scooter gang roars onto Roland Avenue. Roland Park residents heading for church turn to look, disturbed and confused, as the group putt-putts by, clad in Speed Racer-esque coats and riding a mix of shiny white, black, blue and wasabi-green scoots. The gang is made up of guys between the ages of 16 and 35. Some are married, some are fathers, and some are single. All are slightly insane. A few scooter babes are riding on the back of the bikes, hugging their drivers tight as they head for the first big group ride of the spring.

SAN DIEGO -- When Mike Shanahan was a 5-foot-9, 143-pound high school senior, his goal was to become a college quarterback.It's not surprising that the big schools took one look at his small frame and passed, so the Oak Park, Ill., native jumped at the chance to play at Eastern Illinois.When driving him to the school, his father tried to talk Shanahan out of playing."He was solid as a rock, but he didn't have any meat on his bones," his father, Ed, remembers.Shanahan was determined to play.

SAN DIEGO -- Mike Holmgren understood his role in last year's Super Bowl.The coach of the Green Bay Packers played second banana to the swaggering presence of Bill Parcells, who dominated the pre-game hype because of his feud with New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft.It was almost as if Parcells was going to play the Packers by himself. That left Holmgren as the other coach in the Super Bowl, but that didn't seem to bother him."You know when they put those little check marks in the paper for coaching and whatnot about teams?

ABERDEEN -- There is, in sports, a nobility that comes from effort, a beauty and grace that emanate from the intricate movement of the body, a serenity that comes from having withstood the competition. Then there's . . . this stuff.Lawn-mower racing.On the other hand, if your thing is watching heavyset men in windbreakers and flannel shirts atop riding mowers, their guts jiggling violently as they race around a grassy, tire-laden course, the place to be yesterday was at Harford County Airpark, site of the STA-BIL East Coast Regionals of the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association.
