Re: MO Teaches Dirtbiking
 
The real tip on dirt riding is it's a hell of a lot of fun and you should go out of your way to try it. As said before, you can wrong the nads off your dirt bike all day, and not have to worry about traffic (most of the time) or law enforcement (if you're riding in a legal area). It will also make you a better street rider, as you will find your own limitations without endagering yourself unduly.



You will also find that the vast majority of dirt riders are not anti-environmental earth-raping swine. They're some of the best people I know.

Fonzie is wearing some vintage gear. JT! I think they only make stuff for paintball now. Where is the openfaced helmet with the googles/face guard thing? I guess it just proves I am a relative newbie. : )

When I happen on another dirt rider you can usually count on a friendly encounter. Doesn't matter if they are riding trails, tracks, or jumping. While most street riders are also decent, the dirt guys are much more welcoming. As far as for the environment comment, you are right. People sit on their couch in airconditioning and claim we are wrecking the landscape. We are just using it. A 4 foot wide trail thourgh the wilderness does little to hurt the landscape. The only thing I may give them is on hills erosion can be a factor. Even that is not that bad, it is nothing compared to what a skidder will do when hauling logs.....rant over.

You are also dead on about improving street skill, the enjoyment of wringing the ***** out of it, etc.

I drank too much scotch last night so I'm sitting here kinda shaky, sipping some gatorade to get my electrolytes back to normal, missing my coffee and along comes butt floss moto-cross. It's gonna be a long day but at least I got to smile. Ya Loonies.

I bought three of the 4 just reviewed here at MO. 50 Nuts is funny and entertaining, but there is boobage, so it is not suitable for small children. Crusty Nine Lives is good, but it seems to me that they will always live in the shadow of their first, classic vid. Higher Ground is outstanding. No T&A, But amazing machines and fearless heroes chucking themselves at cliff walls makes for fantastic footage.
