- Motorcycle gloves - riders always need them and no single gloves works for all occasions. Here's a chance for you to get some nice winter riding gloves, or some waterproof gloves, or some new road race or warm weather gloves. Motostrano has them all.
- Casual apparel - it's cold so grab your honey a hoodoe, or a new beanie.
- Exhaust- a new exhaust for the right rider on the right bike will bring smiles a mile wide to your buddy
- Tools - moto specific tools are helpful and great to have around
- Wheels - for that budding supermoto rider, some new 17 inch wheels will make him indebted to you for life.
- Jackets - a new motorcycle jacket is always helpful. Riders like to let these things get ripe and funky before replacement.
- Tires - tires are expensive and always wear out. Always.

We got the scoop on a limited range of Official Red Bull Alpinestars t-shirts and a hoody that will be shipping at the end of this month. Get an order in now, because these things will SELL OUT well before you find your arm stuffed inside the back end of a giant turkey hunting for left over entrails Thanksgiving morning. It may even be too late already. Think about it- when is that last time you've seen official licensed sportswear with the two most loved brands in motocross pasted in big bold colors for all to see? Here's the answer to that question: NEVER unless the number on your MX bike is 199.

REAR AVON DISTANZIA 150/60HR-17 16.2 lbs
REAR CONTI SM 150/60HR-17 12.1 lbs
FRONT AVON DISTNAZIA 120/70-17 10 lbs
FRONT CONTI SM 120/70-17 9.2
Conclusion- for a DRZ or other lighter weight street supermoto, a 4 lb difference on the rear and almost a lb on the front is no small amount of lard to be carrying around on such a slim bike.

Pirelli Scorpion trail tires for on off pavement excursions
SCORPION TRAIL: PERFORMANCE PROGRESSION FOR THE ENDURO SEGMENTThis segment was born during the 1980s when BMW GS had begun wining the most important African rallies, using resistant motorcycles with a 21" enduro tire on front. Soon these big motorcycles started to meet the street for long distance tours and the natural progression of their usage has modified the fitment: larger tire on the rear and a smaller 19" on the front.
Today, the segment of enduro is one of the strongest in the market, and BMW GS series is the unquestioned market killer. Other manufacturers are trying to enter the segment bringing back the off road heritage as Tènèrè, V-Storm or TransAlp, or introducing aggressive style bikes like Benelli Tre1103K or Moto Morini Granpasso.
As motorcycle manufactures are renewing their offers bringing in new models able to evocate to the rider the freedom and the power of following his own imagination, Scorpion Trail has been created to answer to the new requirements of an increasingly demanding market.
An aggressive look, mixed with technological innovations and essential features like high speed stability, off-road traction, handling and comfort, but also grip in all conditions: this is Pirelli's Scorpion Trail tire.

It seems any rider with a discussion forum profile has an opinion about cheap helmets. "You get what you pay for". "Do you have a $100 head to match your $100 helmet?". But the fact is that manufacturing techniques and helmet material technologies have all gotten less expensive in the last few years, despite the fact that Arai offers a $800 helmet in this down economy. This has helped helmet makers offer more and more helmets at lessor and lessor cost.
So, we are on the side of cheap helmets, if it gets more riders on two wheels, lowers the cost-barrier for more folks to get on a motorcycle. Let's face it, many of us got into this activity because it's cheaper than other forms of motorized transportation, so things that keep costs down - like cheap helmets - are a good thing for the sport.
Our top selling "cheap helmet" line has traditionally been Z1R Helmets. Z1R has held fast to it's price point, letting you buy a DOT approved full face street helmet for $100. Our second helmet brand to offer cheap helmets is AFX Helmets. AFX has been around quite a while and also offers some low cost helmets for street and dirt riders. In fact, you can pick up a full face street helmet from AFX for just $59.95. That's a bargain.

ICON's new Alliance helmet, the Krazy Klown, is absurd, psychopathic and pretty cool.
Not sure if it was modeled after this guy or this this guy.
This is what they say
"Coulrophobia, or in laymen's term, a completely rational fear of clowns. It's an extremely common condition usually instigated by a youth spent near carnivals, hobo encampments, or fast food restaurants. Whatever the cause there is no known cure. Some will tell you that clowns are merely actors with facepaint. Wrong. All clowns are evil demonic demons and desire nothing more than to eat you alive - you know, for fun. Those aren't idle ramblings of the Iconic mind, those are facts. All world standard, meets or exceeds the following: DOT FMVSS 218 (US), ECE 22-05 (Europe), SAI AS1698 (Australia) & SG (Japan) safety and testing standards. Does not ship with SAI or SG certification stickers unless purchased in that country. Injection molded Polycarbonate shell Wind tunnel tested and refined Molded twin channel supervent for increased cooling Rear exhaust ports prevent heat buildup Internal on/off cheek exhaust switches Removable molded breath deflector Chin venting system reduces shield fogging Fully removable/washable HydraDryTM interior Quick-change fog-free eye ProshieldTM ProLockTM secure shield locking system Removable FSB fin kit included"

Motostrano is one of the few companies in the nation to actually stock Wolfman luggage. How do we know this? You might think we have a team of spies that go from shop to shop and travel around the country taking logs of the various products our competition sells and then this team sends in reports. Very Spy vs Spy. But no. We know this because from where I sit I'm always hearing customers in our store say "oh, you actually stock Wolfman luggage? Cool!" or "see, these guys sell Wolfman, which is a cool dual-sport brand of luggage. They are the only guys I know that stock them."
Wolfman luggage is a small manufacturer of a wide range of motorcycle soft luggage built with the dual-sport and world trekker in mind. Their luggage reminds me a lot of kayaking luggage with a liberal use of waterproof plastic and rubber. They've designed their bags to hold giant amounts of gear that gets strapped to large multi-purpose motorcycles as they go long distance to far away lands. It's rugged and designed for objects of all sizes. It's made to take some damage in a crash and some bags are made to withstand water submersion - for when the native canoe you've tied your BMW 1200GS using substandard jungle vine cracks in two, causing you and your bike to slip into snake infested river water.
You'll find the complete Wolfman catalog at Motostrano.com here.
There's some smoking hot deals to be had in the Motostrano Outlet store right now. Our Outlet Store is where we move all of our in-stock clearance, over-stock and close-out items. All items are marked down typically 50% and some items are marked down as much as 80% off retail. All items are in stock ready to ship.
Our Outlet store is currently selling HELMETS for up to 50% off and casual items like t-shirts and hoodies for as little as $5.00! There's Supermoto rotors for just $99 and plastics for 50% off. There's Alpinestars clearance pants, boots and suits online as well.
Check it out, tell a friend.

Yoshimura and BMW are two brands you may not always think of as making the perfect cocktail to drown out your earthly sorrows, but think again and throw a little sushi into your sourkraut- you never know, it just might taste great.

Felt makes some pretty cool cruisers. Some may even think they're rad. Perhaps the "king of cool", Felt's "HOT Wheels Sixty-8 Cruiser" model is the epitome of a custom cruiser bicycle in a low-rider style, made awsomely. Known for their use of huge fat tires, the Hot Wheels model is no exception, with the big fat Felt "Thick Brick" white-wall tires front and back. While not quite as huge as the massive 3 inchers on the El Guapo, the Hot Wheels holds it own with a custom paint job, fabricator style framing, disc brakes front and rear and low straight like handle bars. .
I like to picture myself riding this bike on a hot and sunny day, in rush hour traffic, on one of my busier downtown boulevards. I'm wearing a big flat bill cap, big black sunglasses, big tats down my arms, giant comb sticking out the back of my jeans and I have this giant ice cream cone in one hand. Then I slide up to this red light where two dudes on Harleys are sweltering in their leathers and I just look over at them and nod.
The Hot Wheels features a "Rust-Free Aluminum Monocoque Tank Frame" and stuff. And it comes with the "hotwheels' decorative black custom license plates too. It also features an MX-style side stand that fits into the axle. Yea, it's that cool. Way too cool for a regular kick stand.
This bike is a 3-speed with a compact cassette hub w/14mm Axle. No sprockets. Just smooth gearing using the shifter located on the down tube. Like we said. It's cool.
