Motostrano's 2007 Race Initiatives

2007 is going to be the best year to date for Motostrano's racing practice. To put this in context, realize that for the past 3 years Motostrano has fielded one of the top privateer (non factory) teems in professional US supermoto racing. We put a lot of time, effort and money into building a reputation at the track that can sometimes seem bigger than life.

On the AMA pro level, Motostrano has partnered once again with JST Racing and combined our team with Cary Hart of Hart & Huntington who has fielded a ROCKSTAR energy drink sponsored team. We're really excited to see what the team will do this year. Our main rider for the past two years and good friend Travis Marks will race along side
Scott Sheak, Carey Hart and Doni Wanat and we'll have riders in all classes. Look for the Motostrano tent at these event and look for folks from our shop on hand as well.

On the local level, our own Paul Giani has put together his own battalion of riders to compete up and down the West Coast in the Supermoto USA Nor Cal series. Brok at SMUSA has created an aggressive season this year and Motostrano is behind it both as a title sponsor and as a collection of racers. We'll also be on hand at most of the races with a display and vending booth for trackside support.

Aside from these 2 initiatives, we have many other privateer sponsored riders in place including Ryan Moore, the sharpshooter Supermoto stunt rider of out SoCal.

Hardware: Supermoto Wheels Explained

Supermoto wheels are a big investment, when you factor that your 2-3 year old dirt bike may have a resale value in dirt form in the $4-5K range, if that. We get calls from guys all the time who say "well, I'm not really racing or nothing, so I'm just looking for the cheapest wheels you have to convert to Supermoto". Well, the real reply there is that there really isn't a cheap way to get into Supermoto unless you're going to go Sportsman about it and ride on knobbies or some type of dual-sport tire. Quality 17-inch supermoto wheels that will last are going to set you back between $800 and $2000 depending on how deep you're going to go at this and whether you want quality and performance or just a good price. Motostrano is a full scale supermoto specialist and we've been involved in Supermoto since it's re-birth in the United States in 2002. We offer complete supermoto wheels made from the finest materials and built by experience wheel builders

Riding the Moustache Samedi 27 2X Tandem Electric Bike

I love riding with my partner and riding by tandem is one of my favorite ways to get around on a Sunday. Touring by tandem is literally twice as fun as riding solo,when you are on a bike with the one you love and the one that loves you. But tandem bikes are rare and excellent electric tandem bikes are even rarer, so I wanted to give you a fresh impression of our ride yesterday on the 2018 MOUSTACHE Samedi 27 X2 tandem . Moustache is a French company, making some of the most innovative ebikes in the world. Their tandem is no exception. This bike comes in two build types, either a smooth tire touring type or a knobby tire off-road type, but the frames, motors and other specs are pretty much the same.  I've ridden tandems for the past few years on road and off road. Yesterday we did a Meet-Up ride with other fellow ebikers in the Sonoma area. Naturally we were the only tandem riders, with others riding solo on their Haibikes, KTM, Giant, Felt and Blix bikes. Out and
