All NEW ICON Fall 2011 Motorcycle Gear



I'm drooling over the 2011 Fall product from ICON. ICON moto has been on such a hard core roll with some fantastic, exciting motorcycle clothing and helmets in the past year and judging by their latest fall 2011 stuff, they're not letting up any time soon. With their complete end to end presentation, ICON is, for better or worse, putting a lot of other clothing companies to shame, or just flat out putting them out of business.

No longer just the "stunter" brand, ICON is really starting to give other makers of moto clothing a serious run for their money. I know, I know, they can't touch the likes of Alpinestars or SIDI in the boot and suit market, but who cares? You can't afford to go racing any more anyway. So, ICON is making some exciting hooligan stuff for the dudes having fun in the street, in the parking lot, in the back alley.

I like the ICON Guardian Alliance Helmet for it's wink at our boys fighting the good fights.

There's a limited edition ICON Hard Luck Jacket that will evaporate before you will realize it's that cool. We don't have numbers as far as how many will be made, but if it's anything like the "metal god" jacket that it copies, this thing won't last long, will be ordered up exclusively from the online shops and then sold on Ebay for double the price.

And since ICON is one of the few truly neutral clothing companies out there, Harley riders now have some black n orange ICON to wear with the new ICON Brawnson Sidewinder Jacket. Good stuff.

Oh and check this out! ICON is making a real motorcycle boot. The ICON Rein Waterproof boot is a touring commuting category killer. j

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
