Motorcycle must rides #3

Soooo. number 3. The first 2 were DRASTICALLY different. The greatest touring machine and couch on wheels ever created, and the dumbest, stupidest, most terrifying assault on physics created.

So, where does that leave us? Well, we officially make to brap time.

Dirt bikes are what many of us end up riding at some point or another. its good, cheap fun and relativly cheap and easy to get into. after all, who didnt love riding in the woods with friends on our bicycles?

You see that dumbass 70% up the hill on his side? *waves enhusiastically*

Dirt bikes are jus the evolution of that. Its fun and theraputic to just head off into the wilderness with a few friends and get muddy for a few hours.

Dirt bike riding also healp teach you a few skills. Wheleies are dumb-ass easy, its simple to slide the rear and learn how that feels, and of course you will at some point lock up the rear tire. Seems like small stuff, but you’d be amazed at how weird it feels, and once you learn how it feel and how to react to it, you wont get shocked on the street.

Plus, its always fun to roost your buddy and repaint them head to toe in BROWN. This is opposite lock right?

My personal experiance with dirtbikes: When i worked as a motorcycle instructor, the company took us dirtbiking one day as a end of year thank you.

My first real experiance with dirtbikes, my dumb-ass was thinking, hey, I ride a 650 street bike, I can handle a 450 dirtbike! It was VERY quickly returned for a CRF250RX. I didnt want to die. We ended up riding for about 7 or 8 hours. During that time I hit the ground more then I had in 5 years of street riding. I tried to do a small wheelie over a little crest...said crest lead into a y-shaped tree. Bike stopped. I didnt. Many laughs were had.

ehh, look at thaht happy guy in the yellow jacket and blue/orange/yellow lid :)

It was a LOT of fun, and a great way to blow off some steam and learn a few new tricks. Not having to worry about stupid people on the road was also a bit relaxing.

So basicly just pure and simple dumb fun. If you are a fan of the outdoors in anyway shape or form, this is one of the best ways to get around there.
