AMA: 2007 Supermoto Schedule Revised

AMA Racing news release

AMA Racing announced today that the 2007 AMA Supermoto Championship schedule has been revised, adding events in Oklahoma City, Okla. (Sept. 9) and Galveston, Texas (Nov. 3) and moving the Hartford, Conn., event to a new date (Aug. 25) and location.

Each venue will welcome their inaugural AMA Supermoto Championship race. Stafford Motor Speedway near Hartford, Conn., will now host Round 5 of the series, Oklahoma Motorsports Complex in Oklahoma City, Okla., will host Round 7 and one of the largest motorcycle rallies in the nation, the Lone Star Rally in Galveston will host Round 9. Both the Denver stop at Invesco Field and Connecticut’s round at MotoTown USA have been removed from the schedule due to local ordinance issues.

The AMA Supermoto Championship is one of the most exciting series in two-wheel racing, with both dirt and pavement sections that form a race course combining the attributes of supercross, flat track and road racing.

The series kicks off on May 19, with a first-time visit to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in St. Louis, and culminates on Nov. 11 at Troy Lee Design’s Duel at the Docks in Long Beach.

“We are very excited about the addition of the latest events to the national schedule,” said AMA Supermoto Director, Joel Grover. “We are working hard with each event promoter to ensure the most successful series so far.”

Combing the United States, the AMA Supermoto Championship will showcase some of the most talented motorcycle racers in the world, including racing legend and current AMA Supermoto Champion, Jeff Ward, as well as two young-gun support class Champions in Cassidy Anderson (AMA Supermoto Lites) and Ben Carlson (AMA Supermoto Unlimited).

Last year, Ward, who has also enjoyed success in AMA Supercross/Motocross and IRL Racing, claimed his second AMA Supermoto title. Ward, who has a combined nine AMA National championships, won his first Supermoto title in 2004.

Below is a listing of the entire 2007 AMA Supermoto Championship schedule:

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
