Supermoto Gift Ideas

"just in time for the holidays", as they say

We thought we'd give all the supermoto fans out there some ideas for Xmas gifts this season, seeing how it's getting close to the holidays and all. As a motorcycle rider, the last thing you may want is a new scarf this Christmas. You can use these ideas either for yourself, or your friends. Hint... pass this email on to the gift-giver in your local proximity...

A no-brainer gift for the active supermoto fan, racer or run-of-the-mill motorcyclist out there: any one of our four Supermoto DVDs. Impossible to find in stores, Motostrano stocks the DVDs and chances are good you or your buddies don't own all of them yet. Supermoto 2009 and Severe Supermoto 2 are new titles that were recently released.

We all have that friend, relative or husband or wife out there who's been struggling along in the Sportsman Class with their stock wheels and brakes, limping across the finishing line with cooked brake calipers and melted half-knobbies. Champions, they are, in their own class, but we all know they secretly or loudly desire a proper supermoto set-up. Motostrano's supermoto conversion kits start at $1100 right now and we can get kits out in time for Christmas.

Another great gift idea is any kind of product that is protective. Not only do many riders do without these items, it also makes a solid statement that you care about your favorite supermotardist and want as few bruises on them as possible. Motostrano stocks body armor products from Acerbis, Alpinestars, TPRO and others.

Other apparel related items include motorcycle gloves, a new jacket or under suit. Motorcycle boots, motorcycle socks, waterproof things.

Finally, casual wear items are a fool-proof gift for any motorsports fan. Alpinestars hoodies, t-shirts and hats are a great gift for any motorcycle rider. Many of our hoodies and t-shirts are on sale and we also have our popular Alpinestars T-Shirt Three Pack available again.

Motostrano as an easy return policy in case something doesn't fit or the receipient doesn't like the item. Around the holidays we extend our return policy time for easy returns and exchanges. If you think a return is possible, please make sure to avoid purchasing close-out items, since we reduced prices on these items drastically but also restrict our returns on them. Our close-out items are located here, here and here.

Need help? Give us a call or email us for more ideas. We're happy to recommend sizes on clothing or parts for a specific type of motorcycle. 650-780-9306

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

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.
