New Helmets from Icon & Scorpion


Though these two brands may not enjoy being in the same room together, both ICON and Scorpion put out some new helmets for 2009 that will stir the stagnant pot of 2008 and earlier helmets. ICON kicked off their product launch a few weeks ago with a long and gritty behind the scenes online videotizement bounced off their web site that is well worth a watch. Particularly hilarious is the honking chew loogy the guy drops on the scorpion bug in the first few seconds of the desert scene. 

ICON's 2009 graphics are great, especially if you happen to be a Buccaneer. The Jolly Roger waves mightily on the Crossbone helmet and there's a women's Hella Crossbones jacket to match. 

Since November 2008, Scorpion has been trying to keep up with the huge demand of their EXO 700 Neon helmet. Scorpion was literally caught off guard by the huge demand this helmet has enjoyed and this means you just can't get one without waiting for a lengthy back order. It is, without a doubt, the brightest most visible helmet you can own, short of strapping a disco ball to your head and roaming around with that. It should glow in the dark! Wow, there's an idea huh? A glow in the dark helmet, with a glow in the dark jacket to match. 

Even if you don't have a Hayabusa, the Hayabusa Airframe helmet looks cool. Based on the Airframe, it's part of a whole line of Suzuki ICON products available now. 

Our favorite two Scorpion helmets are the Predator and the Chameleon. The Predator graphics are very animalistic and aggressive, while the Chameleon's are dark and subtle. Very cool colors in each of them too. 

In the ICON line-up, the ICON Burn Baby Burn helmet unashamedly capitalizes on the eternal marriage of motorcycles and sex. This Airframe helmet displays a boysterous and bouncy cowgirl with giant tits bull riding a giant screw and really enjoying it.

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
