Guess who got a nice little Dunlop and Alpinestar treat from the mailman today?

I came home from work today to find a fantastic care package that the mailman had left for me. The big box contained a few sets of new DUNLOP SUPERMOTO slicks to get me through the remaining races this season. I have been using Dunlop race tires all season long and absolutely kicking butt with them all over socal until last month when I was in a pinch and unable to locate some new tires in time for a race that I had at Sonoma. I mounted up a set of Bridgestones for that race and lost the front while leading a race, then a lap later I highsided myself to the moon at the end of the straight. The following weekend I raced with those same Bridgestones at Milestone and crashed out while leading the main unlimited race.  These are the first two DNF’s that I have had in over 3 years. Needless to say, I am VERY pleased to have some brand new Dunlops sitting in the trailer and ready to be mounted up again. :)

You can order Dunlop supermoto racing tires for your own bike from Steve and his awesome crew at Race Tire Service by clicking this link: http://stores.racetireservice.com/-strse-53/supermoto-165–REAR/Detail.bok

The mailman also left me a nice little box from Motorcycle Superstore that contained a brand new set of Alpinestar Supermoto boots (tech 7 I believe). These will replace the nasty old shagged set of Gaerne boots that are about one slide away from having my heel and toe pop out of the sole! I have never used these Alpinestars in the past, but I have heard good reviews and at $300 they seemed to be a good option.
Motorcycle Superstore has really great prices, super fast shipping, AND more importantly than anything (in my opinion) – they support our sport. Motorcycle Superstore sponsors the AMA 600 Supersport race class as well as a couple of good friends of mine including Devon McDonough and Andy DiBrino. I have raced SV650′s with both of these hooligans in the past and they are some great fresh new talent on the 600 AMA race scene. I hope they both continue to impress all of us and climb to the top of the podium.

Here is a pic of me snagging a  podium finish up at Sonoma with Supermoto USA .  They run a very fine  operation and I highly encourage any supermoto racers or fans to go check out one of their races sometime.  Their schedule of events and more info can be found here: http://supermotousa.com/schedule/
