Some Favorite Sites

Jocky Journal - one of the few moto sites that have really caught my eye in the past... oh more than a year. Steepandcheap - the business model of this site is interesting, to say the least. Granted, it's a sub site of another company all together, but the concept is interesting, would never work in the Motorcycle industry, where the margins are too dinky. Motostrano may try something similar to this within our site some day. . one of my favorite clothing oriented web sites. Thanks to Natalie I know about this. American Apparel I hate and love this web site and company. The CEO seems to be a nut, maybe that's why I have an affinity for it. I mostly return again and again to gaze at the hot young women posed seductively. The clean barebones design is a little dry, but oh those hot little things in boy shorts and stuff just make the site. Yahoo Yea, Yahoo. After being born and raised on Yahoo oh for the last 10 years or so, I got wooed by Google last year for just

Catching Up...

I set up a Flickr Account for Motostrano . After 5 years of saving photos on my hard drive, I thought to post up some or all of my photos and graphics on Flickr. Flickr is very cool.

And So This Was Christmas

I have some free time and some catching up to do on this blog so I'm going to rapid fire some posts here. - For 2008 we'll be changing up our Blog a little. Well, a lot actually. We're going to open it up to non-Supermoto stuff, as well as Supermoto stuff of course. In a nutshell, this will just give the blog more to blog about and expand things to sport bike, adventure bike and any other category that catches our eye, whether motorcycle related or not. So, the Supermoto Blog is now the Motostrano blog. - Christmas 2007 came and went in a puff of smoke. In terms of overall operations and execution for Motostrano- it was our best ever. I judge how well Christmas goes by the amount of nasty angry Mom or girlfriend calls I pick up from irate customers wondering where their Christmas gifts wandered off to.
