Mayhem at the Morongo press release Rockstar/Hart & Huntington


Press Release – Morongo

Rockstar/Hart & Huntington Tattoo Co./Motostrano.com-JSTracing/Leo Vince/Carter Powersports

November 10-11, 2007


Wow! What a great weekend for the Rockstar/Hart & Huntington team at the Morongo! The weather was a bit uncooperative, but the track was fun and the crowd was great! The fierce competition kept Carey, Travis, and Doni on their toes.

Promoter practice went well on Friday. The guys got a feel for the track and the windy weather, getting them ready for the double header weekend. Saturday brought sunshine and wind, not to mention some great racing!

In the 450 class there were a lot of world class riders brought in, but Carey did very well. He finished out the season on Sunday in 12th place, pulling up 2 positions from his point standings on Saturday. His hard work and dedication put the 450 team in 10th place for the year.

Travis Marks and Doni Wanat added some valuable points throughout the weekend. Travis finished an awesome 4th place for the season! After his qualifier Travis came in with some engine noises; the team quickly pulled and replaced the engine with the backup. In the main event the back up expired. With no engine for the Sunday races, the mechanic took a closer look at the first engine and discovered a problem with the fuel line. He was able to fix it and put it back in the bike before the Sunday event. Luckily there were no more engine issues as Travis had no backup! There was a crash with Wiles in the first couple laps of the Sunday race, but even with all the trouble, Travis brought a total of 20 points to the team with his 9th and 13th place finishes.

Doni Wanat finished 12th and 17th on Saturday and Sunday, bringing a total of 13 points to the Unlimited team. Due to a crash in his qualifying on Saturday, there was a frantic rush to switch out the sub frame so he could participate in round #9. Unfortunately, he was also having overheating issues with his bike; luckily the engine didn’t have to be rebuilt!

All their hard work paid off and the Rockstar/Hart & Huntington Unlimited team finished in 3rd place in the Championship ahead of Husqvarna and behind Aprilia and KTM.

We wouldn’t have made it without the help and support of the team, mechanics, the fans and of course our sponsors. Thanks so much!

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
