As far as adrenalinfuelled sports go, you don’t get much more action packed thandirt bike racing. It’s fast, and to coin a well-used phrase,it’s furious. People from age 4 to age 64 love the thrill andregularly take part in dirt bike racing.What should I consider when dirt bike racing?First and foremost, you should consider your safety. The verynature of dirt bike racing as a sport means it’s dangerous andit’s even more dangerous if you don’t take it seriously. Anyreputable dirt bake track won’t let you on if you don’t have ahelmet, goggles, a jersey, pants, chest protector and in somecases a neck protector. You should always pick gear that fitsbecause if it doesn’t fit it isn’t safe.Dirt bike riders don’t appreciate people who ride recklessly,and if you are a reckless rider you will undoubtedly get an ear bashing for your dangerous behavior and quite possibly kickedoff the track. Dirt biking is one of the most dangerous sportsin the world, but taking it seriously and following all theproper safety rules will help you make the most of it.The bike also plays a serious part (obviously) and when you areselecting a dirt bike either for yourself or for your childrenyou should always make sure that the rider can sit on the bikewith their feet touching the floor and legs bent slightly. Ifthe bike is too big there is no way you can have full controland the same can be said if it’s too small.Also, consider how practiced you are. The more experienced youbecome as a rider the better you become. Don’t try getting airof incredible heights until you really know what you are doing.Beginners should be happy with a foot or two of air; the ridersyou see on TV who are climbing up to ten feet have been ridingfor years and years to be able to do that.As a beginner you will probably find a line you are happy withand stick to it. While this is unlikely to win you any bigraces, it will give you chance to hone your skills and gainconfidence. Once you’re a bit more experienced you will be ableto take different lines to overtake people and win races.Dirt bike racing is not something you can just throw yourselfinto. It takes plenty of practice to become any good and youshould never try anything you aren’t confident with. If youstick to this and find yourself a reputable track then youwon’t go far wrong.Dirt Bikes HQ, http://www.dirtbikeshq.com/for lots of information about dirt biking.If you liked what Steel Horse News has to say pass it on Clickhere to email this to a friend.Amazon.com WidgetsCopyright© Steel Horse MotorcycleNews.  May 15, 2012.
