2010 Supermoto USA NW Series Schedule


Its that time again, the start of race season where you look at your calendar
and say where the hell is the race schedule? The lack of a published schedule
is making every one ansty and rumors are flying around as to what is going on
within our community.

Let me give you the skinny on what is going on with the Supermoto USA NW series.
We have reestablished our relationship with the management of the Pacific GP facility.
PGP will continue to be our "home" track and is open for supermoto practice daily
(see pacificgp.com for exact details).

PGP is also establishing a local series to run exclusively at PGP, utilizing the SMUSA NW rule book and class structure.
In fact, our may 16th event will share points between the regional series and the pgp series.
SMUSA NW could not be happier to have this opportunity to share in the utilization of this top notch
facility and in the benefits of the consistency of a well established rulebook.

In additon to the local series, SMUSA NW will go back to its roots in covering the region. We will be offering
6 different facilties over the course of the year for your racing enjoyment. Everywhere from PGP, to
Evergreen Speedway with the monster trucks to Renegade Raceways in Yakima to our keynote event @ EK days in July.

Its not without trepidation that we undertake this endeavor (go to wikpedia.org to look up those words if you must).
We know that the economy sucks for everyone. We know there has been some infighting in the community
about certain facilities and certain personalities (myself included!).

We also know this this is a make or break season for our entire sport. There is no pro series
(or very limited) this year and groups all across the country are shrinking.
There are pockets of growth, we are hoping to rekindle this interest and the participation our area.

We are also aware that now you as a rider have choices, we are no longer the exclusive source of Supermoto
in the Washington area. Being a supermoto rider in Washington no longer means you have to be a racer,
with the construction of the excellent facility at PGP, many are making to choice to be track day riders
and forgo racing all together, or only choosing to race events that are within x miles of their homes.

We are well aware that all the possibilities could lead to a dilution of the racer pool, to the point
that no series could be successful. We at SMUSA NW, WHR Motorsports and Pacific GP are fighting hard to
prevent this. We want to ensure our sports survival locally by whatever means we can.
Its your job as a racer to show up and (and bring friends to spectate or try it out) support the races
that you can, so you will have the opportunity to race again next year.

So, enough with the doom and gloom, lets get to the fun part. Racing.
Here is where and when you can.

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
