Hart, Dymond, Marks, Wanat at Nashville



With its unique layout and banked corners, no one can deny that the Nashville track is the one of the fastest and toughest tracks in the Championships scheduled this year! The track was a quick one, with concrete walls on its high banks clearly playing to the strengths of those with a background in flat track. Our riders adapted quickly. Using the banks to gain maximum speed and deftly avoiding the impact points which caused a few hard crashes during the weekend event.

All Access Racing and Motostrano.com/JSTRacing sponsored rider Mickey Dymond didn’t have good fortune during his qualifier. Dymond, The winner of the last AMA Supermoto event, already riding on his backup bike, got into a high speed impact crash with Ben Carlson of the Aprilia team during the 2nd lap of the heat race. This left both bikes damaged, too damaged to compete. The heat race was red-flagged and luckily, the Rockstar/Hart & Huntington team was allowed to loan Carey Hart’s backup bike to Mickey. A quick change here and there and Mickey was allowed to run a motorcycle that enabled him to finish 7th in the heat race and 8th in the final event, enough to salvage valuable points toward the championship.

A big THANK YOU to Carey and the Hart and Huntington crew, and all who were involved in getting Mickey back on track. Congratulations Mickey!!

Back to the 450 Premiere class; despite the long weekend and working around the unusual setup for this track, Carey Hart is creeping up in points in the 450 class and had a great race on Saturday. He qualified the heat race without any issues, getting a feel for the track and getting his lines through the corners down, finishing in 8th place. During the main event, Carey pushed hard as he moved confidently up the grid to bring an 11th place finish to the team and stepped up his position in the Championship to 14th place. He’s looking forward to the remainder of the season and some more technical tracks.

In the Unlimited class, Travis Marks and Doni Wanat did well, bringing a 6th and 12th place respectively to the team.

Travis had to switch to his back-up bike during the mid-day practice session due to engine problems with his primary bike The race went on, despite being scored an entire lap down because of an AMA transponder malfunction. After filing a protest challenging the posted results, the final result was corrected and a well deserved 6th place was rewarded to Marks. Travis not only moved up in the Championship to 6th place, he is now only 13 points away from 3rd overall in the unlimited championship.

Keeping a close eye on the temperature Doni didn’t have any problems during the race, although he did express a dislike for the treacherous track. Showing determination and consistency he maintained his 9th place in the series. Doni’s looking forward to the next four races to move up in points and score better results for the team and combined Team Championship.

See you at our next race, September 29th in Redmond, Oregon. Come on out and meet the team!

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
