One of the best ways to introduce yourself to the sport of riding a motorcycle is by riding a dirt bike. Low speeds, soft-ish landings from a fall, and overall much lighter then any street bike (except super motos of course). Dirt bikes are a great way of learning the basics of riding. Even if you’re a street rider with years of experience under your belt, riding in the dirt can introduce you to the feeling of losing traction. Something that is typically very alarming while riding on the street. Through my post I hope to keep track of my progress over the following months of getting better at my favorite hobby.
