Alpinestars T-Monterey textile jacket

Alpinestars T-Monterey Jacket, $129.95

Ahhh, Monterey, California. A magical place. Home to giant kelp forests, prickly sea anemone, Cannery Row and Laguna Seca race track. When I think of Monterey I think of these things and an always moderately cool temperature made soothing by the area's ever present fog that rolls in each day from the Pacific. I think of bubbly beer and dangling calamari, and the thunder of motorcycles in the background.

So it's fitting that Alpinestars made a textile jacket seemingly titled after this great place. The Alpinestars T-Monterey textile jacket was introduced just last year and is a fine jacket to own wherever you ride, as long as it's in the street. Made of Nylon fabric with non-water absorbing mesh construction it has all the usual bells and whistles you find in the Alpinestars non-leather jacket line-up: removable CE approved soft elbow and shoulder protectors, removable and water/wind resistant long sleeve liner, multiple stitched main seam construction for maximum tear resistance, back protector pocket compartment with a foam back pad. It's looks aren't bad either.

"And....? So.......? another jacket I can't afford!?" you say..............!

Well, this great jacket is also now on sale! That's right. In fact it's on sale for just $129.95! (regularly $189.95) A good deal for you or your t-shirt sporting buddy.

And, speaking of Monterey- heads up this year if you are going to Laguna and used to seeing us in the vendor area: Motostrano will NOT be wearily slaving away all weekend at MotoGP race weekend selling Alpinestars as we have for the past five or more years. We'll be sipping on beer and eating fresh Calamari at Cannery Row with you and maybe catch a race or two! See ya there.

And, has been updated too.

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
