THIS IS AN URGENT REPORT OF UFO HELMET SIGHTING. UFO HELMETS SIGHTINGS HAVE BEEN COMING IN FROM ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. REPORTS OF A MASS INVASION OF UFO HELMETS FROM ITALY HAVE BEEN REPORTED. I REPEAT, UFO HELMETS ARE INVADING THE UNITED STATES FROM ITALY IN THE FORM OF UFO MOTOCROSS AND ENDURO MOTORCYCLE HELMETS. WE ADVISE YOU TO REMAIN INSIDE YOUR GARAGE. NO, GET OUT AND RIDE. IF YOU COME IN CONTACT WITH A UFO HELMET GIVE IT THE PEACE SIGN AND RIDE ON.

UFO HELMET IS A PRODUCT MADE FULLY IN ITALY. 4 SEASONAL VARIETIES WILL BE COMING TO OUR GREAT AND FREE LAND WHERE THE FREE ROAM AND WHERE FREEDOM "IS NOT FREE". ACHIEVED AFTER LONG AND ATTENTIVE ITALIAN RESEARCH (IN BETWEEN THOSE TIMES WHEN WE DO OUR VERY COOL NUDE CALENDAR PHOTO SHOOTS THAT WE ALL CHERISH SO MUCH) RESULTING IN BETTER PROTECTION AND CAN BE USED IN COMBINATION WITH THE MODERN NECK BRACE. WHEN PLANNING THE HELMET, PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE WAS GIVEN TO THE INTERNAL COMFORT, THE AGGRESSIVE AND AERODYNAMIC DESIGN AND LESS WEIGHT. CONCEIVED, THEN REALIZED AND THEN OPTIMIZED FOR MAXIMUM EVERYTHING.

Stromer Electric Bikes at Motostrano

Adding to its catalog of standard and electric bicycles, Motostrano is now a dealer of the popular Stromer Electric Bicycles, manufactured in Switzerland. Stromer is a leading electric bicycle manufacturer producing bikes on a standard mountain bike style bicycle frame. Stromer electric bikes feature a battery in the down tube of the bicycle frame, with a brushless electric motor on the rear hub. This makes for a well balanced electric powered bicycle. With its traditional bike frame, the Stromer is also compatible with most public transportation racks, allowing you to mix your transportation modes between public and private modal transport.

Motostrano is fascinated with alternative transportation machines. Electric bicycles are on the forefront of future and alternatively powered transportation. In addition to the Stromer bike, Motostrano sells the Ultra Motor A2B line of bikes and traditional bicycles from Felt Racing.

NEW AGV ROSSI Winter Test Helmet



AGV and Valentino Rossi has released a beautiful limited edition helmet based on Rossi's "Winter Test" 2010 helmet design. Creatively dubbed the ROSSI WINTER TEST HELMET, it features a classic Rossi paint scheme with yellow/black coloring, basic lines and an aggressive look. In our opinion, this is one of the nicest Rossi helmets to come out in a while, which is saying a lot, since the last few helmets to be released have been just great.

Ducati Rider Portrait’s Photo Project Bay Area Photographer Exposes the Soul of Ducati

Press Release
Ducati Rider Portrait’s Photo Project
Bay Area Photographer Exposes the Soul of Ducati

251 W El Camino Real, Sunnyvale, CA 94087
Saturday July 16th 2011

Combine the words art and motorcycle in a conversation and the word Ducati is soon mentioned. The bay area is a paradise for motorcyclists and a sanctuary for artists, so an exhibition that combines the two is a genuine showcase of local passions. From July 2nd to July 30th the Sunnyvale Art Gallery will play host to over 40 select portraits from acclaimed photographer Wayne Serrano’s “Ducati Rider Portrait Project”. The exhibition also includes several sculptures of Italian two wheel horsepower, including a rare Ducati Desmosedici RR.

For decades Wayne Serrano has worked as an editorial and commercial photographer. His style has evolved to capturing the moments and emotions of real people in the environments that reflects their uniqueness and true spirit. “Looking over a few contact sheets of a motorcycle rider photo-shoot it struck me. After people ride, their faces are different; you can see it in their eyes. With that discovery the project began. When riding, the state of being hyper-focused is subconscious. A rider escapes into the moment and all other concerns and pretenses are pulled away. My goal was to capture that moment in the Ducati rider’s eyes.”

Often considered the Ferrari of motorcycles Ducati riders were a natural fit for the project. These Italian machines are always fast, and very sexy. As a photographer, Wayne quickly saw the Ducati difference. “Even people who don’t know anything about bikes are drawn to the beauty of a Ducati straight away. Some Ducati riders say it’s the only motorcycle with a soul. When people feel that way about a bike, a good photo isn’t far behind.”

Often done in a few fleeting seconds rather than extensive photo-shoots Wayne sought to capture that “rider face” before it was gone. It’s clear he’s succeeded. One gallery visitor Cat MacLeod said “We’ve all seen ourselves in the mirror but to see your own wild-eyed soul staring back at you bigger than life…that’s art.”
The 20X30” prints will be available for purchase. All proceeds will go to fund the continuation of the project and subsequent book.

A special artist reception will be held Saturday July 16th from 1pm to 11pm, with Wayne speaking at 5pm. The exhibition opening is timed to coincide with Red Bull US Grand Prix, when all the motorcycling world’s eyes turn the Bay Area’s own Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Many riders are stopping off at the Gallery as they head south to the races.

The Sunnyvale Art Gallery is open from 8am to 8pm Monday through Friday and 9am to 8pm Saturday. It is located at 251 W El Camino Real, Sunnyvale, CA 94087 (408) 737-8188
