Troy Lee Makes It A Double

Troy Lee Makes It A Double:
Final 2007 AMA Supermoto Round and Pro Championship Race will take place in Southern California November 9-11

August 16, 2007 - Corona, CA - For the second consecutive year, Troy Lee Designs will stage the AMA pro Supermoto finale in Southern California. But this year, they're going to "make it a double" - a double-header that is, with the 9th qualifying round of the series taking place on Saturday, November 10, 2007 and the finale occurring the following day on Sunday, November 11th. This year the venue will move away from the ocean to a new location in the greater Los Angeles region to be formally announced next week.

To great reviews, TLD hosted the 2006 AMA season championship final - "Troy Lee's Duel at the Docks" - at the Queen Mary in Long Beach. But for 2007 the Fall event moves to an exciting new venue.

"Months ago we considered returning to the Queen Mary but they're in flux now and we would be unable to produce a quality event like we did last year," said Lee. "The ship's up for auction and looking for new ownership. When that happens my team and I will be happy to discuss another event. Until then we've pursued a new venue that our racers, sponsors, and fans will really enjoy."

"We're on great terms with the City of Long Beach and look forward to producing another race there in the future," offered Troy Lee Designs GM Bob Weber. "One of the best aspects of supermoto racing is that it's moldable and you can be creative, depending on the location. And the group we're finalizing details with right now enables us to put together the best supermoto double-header race weekend ever. It will be amazing!"

The tentative schedule for the November event calls for pro and amateur practice on Thursday, 11/8; amateur practice and racing on Friday, 11/9; pro practice and the 9th round of AMA Supermoto series racing on Saturday, 11/10; and the AMA pro championship finale taking place on Sunday 11/11.

And of course, courtesy of one of the motorsports industry's most creative minds, Troy Lee and his world-class event production team, supermoto racers and fans can expect another innovative track design and spectacular event."

"It will definitely be a weekend of awesome entertainment," said Lee. "Next week we plan to reveal the fantastic venue we're working with and as our plans unfold we will be announcing a few additional surprises that the racers and fans will love."

As was the case for last year's final weekend, a core group of sponsors have lined up quickly to support the racing event including Honda, Red Bull, Parts Unlimited, Weekened Warrior, Oakley, PPG, Mattel Hotwheels, and the motorcycle world's official beer, MotoBrew.

"We had a great experience producing and promoting the Queen Mary event last year," said Lee, whose custom-painted racing helmets have been worn by the world's fastest racers for over 27 years, and who is a supermoto team owner and racer himself. "We learned a few things that will help us put on an even better show and continue to support the exciting and fast-growing sport of supermoto."

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
