NEW: Alpinestars Supertech Touring Boots


The Alpinestars Supertech Touring Gore-Tex boot was released this fall and it's really not until you see the boot in person and try it on that you come to grasp what a great boot this is. Yes, it's expensive at $459.95 and rightly so, because you just can't buy a better boot for touring and wet weather sport bike riding.

A game changer in the touring waterproof boot arena. Imagine taking characteristics from Alpinestars' top of the line road racing boot, the
Supertech R, with characteristics of the best touring boot you can find and feeding them into a super computer cad machine, twist the dial a little, turn up the quality levels a lot, and see what it makes. The Supertech Touring Boot is the best waterproof sport bike boot we've ever seen. Period- and the photos and descriptions you're looking at online right now simply do not due it justice.

Made from full grain leather with a waterproof Gore-Tex® membrane for all weather riding, the Supertech Touring Gore-Tex® is a versatile touring and sport riding boot with high impact protection for those who would rather lead than follow. Made with full-grain leather with a breathable, waterproof Gore-Tex® membrane. Double injected PU in shin, calf, heel and toe for impact and abrasion protection. Reinforced shifter panel over toe. Removable EVA foam sole provides excellent shock absorption and impact protection. Innovative dual side closure: Inner side entry/exit has an elastic mounted zipper and extra wide Velcro® flap for a precise fit and a wide opening aperture for easy access. External calf closure provides additional adjustability with a Velcro® closure. Calf fit is customizable with a dual Velcro® tab adjuster and inner stretch panel. Additional internal quick lace panels for customized fit and extra waterproofing. Lacing has slide locking system with Velcro ended tab for extra secure, no slip lacing.

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
