Fifty Buck Helmets

On the chopping block today is the price of the venerable Z1-R STRIKE ZRP-1 helmet. Get them while they last for just fifty five bucks.

If you haven't heard about this helmet yet, you are likely either new to motorcycling, or, you have have been living in an ice cave some where near the North Pole studying ice shelfs peal off and explode into the Arctic.

The ZRP-1 is the one they have been talking about, blogging about, writing about for the past two years ever since Motorcyclist Magazine stirred the proverbial helmet debate pot with their helmet safety critique. The last time any magazine article caused this must controversy in the motorcycle industry, I think was that time that Cycle Planet Review did that skin abrasion safety testing on the top brands of ass-less leather chaps.

Yes, this is the one that received the BEST review in terms of actual safety. Ie. the most safe helmet among the 10 or so helmets reviewed. Other brands included Arai, Suomy, ICON, AGV, Scorpion and others. Put it this way, Z1R was in good company during this review and they didn't even break a sweat..

Not the most comfy helmet on the market, not the most chock full of gadgets and gizmos, but absolutely a great value. Buy seven and give yourself a helmet for each day of the week . Change them like underwear (they can get just as funky!). Whatever you want man. is rolling out some crazy deals on various close-out stuff up to 80% off. - main web store for all the new cool stuff.

Motostrano OUTLET is having a SPRING CLEANING sale on all kinds of odds and ends.

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
