Hi, I’m Scott Webster.  Welcome to Carpe Moto.  When I turned 55, I bought a Suzuki DRZ400SM and learned to ride it on the rural roads of San Juan Island.  I’ve become surprisingly passionate about motorcycles.  Riding makes me feel more fully alive.

Carpe  =  Grab it!  Do it!  Pin it!   Moto = Two wheels whimsically driven by a ripple-fire of explosions; the final roar of some long-dead dinosaur.

My R12R by FerryCarpe Moto Gear I’ve begun to sell stuff I use every day and that I can vouch for.  My second bike was a BMW R1200R, and I developed a small fairing for it.  Then others wanted them.  Now I’m having the fairings produced by America’s leading motorcycle bodywork company.  They’re for sale on this site.  Other fairings and additional products are coming.
