AMA: Rockstar/H&H/Motostrano Race Report



Round one in the AMA Supermoto Championship took place this last weekend
at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St. Louis, MO and announced that
the new Rockstar/Hart & Huntington team is going to present a definite
challenge for the podium positions this year!

Racing in the Unlimited class, Travis Marks, #64 and Doni Wanat #89 gave
the leaders more than a little competition on their KTMs. Marks, who joined
the team when Rockstar/Hart & Huntington and Team JSTracing merged
during the off season, finished a strong 6th despite taking a spill in the dirt
section and having a small collision with the French Husqavarna rider
Belleraphone. Wanat’s getting faster every time he comes out and pushed the
#8 position Mike Bergman through the track, finishing only fractions of a
second behind him in 9th place. He’s been practicing hard in the off season
and it shows.

Tyler Evans, #53, a Rockstar Supercross racer, did very well in his first AMA
Supermoto event and second ever Supermoto race. Evans, having some
mechanical issues in the qualifying race and no points from last year, started in
the last position in the grid but pulled up through the ranks to finish 14th in
the Premier class, just behind Burton. After some modifications to the bike, we
expect some great finishes from him this season.

Although Carey Hart, # 46, was still out of commission due to a broken wrist
obtained at the Stateline race, we expect he’ll be ready to go for the June 3rd
race at Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ. We know we’ll see great results from
him. See you there!

The DYU King 750 Fat Tire Electric Bike Is a Lot Of Bike For the Money

You can't beat the planted feeling you get aboard a fat tire ebike. It feels like you could hop off the saddle and walk away and the bike would remain standing. Good shock dampening, great grip on the road, more tire to eat up ruts and curbs.  The DYU King 750 electric bike  is a fat tire ebike that stands out for its good looks and very reasonable price tag.  28 MPH top speeds means this bike can get up hills and maintain speed with ease and I can think of 5 ebikes on the market right now that have similar features and style and sell for nearly $4,000 and you'll pay shipping.  Perhaps best of all is DYU offers a 14 day test ride policy and if you don't like what you get you can send the bike back.   

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
