Motostrano Gets Rave Customer Ratings!

For the seventh straight year, Motostrano has received rave reviews from customers all over the world! We thank our customers for submitting those reviews to Yahoo, Yelp and Google and where ever else they come from.

But, before you go off thinking we just like to toot our own horn about how great and perfect we are - we're not perfect and we have the battle scars to prove it. Like any one else, we make mistakes. We're human, just like you are. We're not always the fastest, we're not always the cheapest, we don't always have it in stock all the time, we're not always accurate in what we put in a box, etc. Sometimes, we can't even even fix a mistake after the fact, as hard as we try. But we do try and at the end of the day, that's really all we can do.

So, with that in mind, it's re-assuring for every one at Motostrano to see the statistics and look at reviews from actual customers talking about orders after the fact and using specific criteria.

Our BBB rating has consistently been an A+
Our Yahoo Shopping Rating has always been a 4.5 out of 5 positive
On Yelp we're something close to 4.75 out of 5 positive
On Google we have 4 out of 5 stars

NEW: Alpinestars Supertech Touring Boots

The Alpinestars Supertech Touring Gore-Tex boot was released this fall and it's really not until you see the boot in person and try it on that you come to grasp what a great boot this is. Yes, it's expensive at $459.95 and rightly so, because you just can't buy a better boot for touring and wet weather sport bike riding.

A game changer in the touring waterproof boot arena. Imagine taking characteristics from Alpinestars' top of the line road racing boot, the
Supertech R, with characteristics of the best touring boot you can find and feeding them into a super computer cad machine, twist the dial a little, turn up the quality levels a lot, and see what it makes. The Supertech Touring Boot is the best waterproof sport bike boot we've ever seen. Period- and the photos and descriptions you're looking at online right now simply do not due it justice.

Made from full grain leather with a waterproof Gore-Tex® membrane for all weather riding, the Supertech Touring Gore-Tex® is a versatile touring and sport riding boot with high impact protection for those who would rather lead than follow. Made with full-grain leather with a breathable, waterproof Gore-Tex® membrane. Double injected PU in shin, calf, heel and toe for impact and abrasion protection. Reinforced shifter panel over toe. Removable EVA foam sole provides excellent shock absorption and impact protection. Innovative dual side closure: Inner side entry/exit has an elastic mounted zipper and extra wide Velcro® flap for a precise fit and a wide opening aperture for easy access. External calf closure provides additional adjustability with a Velcro® closure. Calf fit is customizable with a dual Velcro® tab adjuster and inner stretch panel. Additional internal quick lace panels for customized fit and extra waterproofing. Lacing has slide locking system with Velcro ended tab for extra secure, no slip lacing. Double compound rubber sole provides the optimum in grip, performance and durability. Supertech Touring Gore-Tex is CE certified.

Yoshimura DRZ400 Parts

Yoshimura has put out a slew of DRZ400 parts for the supermotarder.

Starting with the Yoshimura Suzuki DRZ400 Case Savers, Yoshimura has created a two part billet kit for protecting your DRZ400's engine cases. These bolt directly to your case using stock hardware. They are anodized in a kind of bronze color.

Next, Yoshimura now offers a Suzukii DRZ400 Engine Plug kit consisting of one large and one small engine plug for your DRZ400. Both are anodized in the same bronze type color.

The Yoshimura Suzuki DRZ400 Axle Blocks are also a new addition to the Yoshimura hard parts line-up. Again anodized in the bronze coloring, these are billet aluminum blocks.

A new DRZ400 Steering Stem Nut, billet aluminum and anodized.

Last on the list so far is the new Yoshimura Suzuki DRZ400 Fender Eliminator. Nevermind that supermoto guys traditionally don't buy fender eliminators, but this kit is actually a short license plate holder and features an LED tail light.

All of these parts are of a very high quality, well machined and light weight. They also bolt on easy and will look trick next to the Yoshimura Full Dual Exhaust System for the DRZ400.
