Press Release: Declared Best Supermoto Store

As the supermoto race season gets into full swing, is plugging away, providing fresh supermoto parts and accessories to supermoto racers and street riders alike around the globe.

Recently, two young ladies from Nashville were asked, "Excuse me girls, would you happen to know where I would find the best place to buy Supermoto products?" To which both girls happily replied: "!" in a cheery girly sort of way.

This photo shows the girls' expressions just after they said "!"

Motostrano has been selling the choicest supermoto parts and accessories for nearly five years now. One time, even Nicky Hayden called them to buy brakes. The Motostrano catalog is full of hundreds of supermoto specfic parts, tried and tested over the years by pro racers and average joe-blow street riders - a couple of shops have even tried to copy Motostrano, steeling images off their web site and trying to use them as their own- the little copy cats. Motostrano sells 5 kinds of supermoto wheels, 6 brands of brakes and a large collection of hop-up parts for practically every type of supermoto bike, except TMs- they don't have any parts for TMs, or VORs either.

"When I heard that the girls announced Motostrano as the Supermoto parts leader, it put a smile on my face," said Joe Witherspoon, proud founding father of the swift-moving company. "You know, I find it hard to believe that they even knew what Motostrano was, but the one on the left is sure hot."

Motostrano is located in Redwood City, California, home to perhaps the largest contingency of Supermoto street riders in the USA. "Why doesn't the AMA do a race here?", Joe has often asked. Motostrano builds Excel Talon supermoto wheels in-house and is known for their focus on Motomaster and Beringer brakes, STM Slipper clutches, Dunlop and Continental tires and much more. They are currently having a blow-out sale on Akrapovic Exhaust Systems for supermoto. Motostrano also specializes in sport riding and racing protective gear from brands like Alpinestars, Troy Lee Designs, Shift, SIDI and Tpro. Supermoto has sometimes been a fast growing motorsport worldwide, then it slows down a little and then it picks up some, but overall it's a pretty niche industry.

Yea I'd agree to that statement !
I have purchased there before and always been very happy.....Its hard to keep everyone happy all the time....I'd say almost impossible....but when these guys make a slight mistake with an order they are always very willing to fix the problem and take care of the customer, pronto ! What more could you ask for....especially for a company that does the volume of business these guys do.....I'd give them two full thumbs up.I have never dealt with a bike shop that is at Motostrano's level of expertise and service.....Keep up the good work fella's !!!

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
