solo riding in the mountains

Recommended Posts

New to the dirt bike scene not to 2 wheels. Picked up a 07 yz450 about a month ago and can't put the thing down.I live on the base of the mountains and work evenings so the days are wide open . I understand the safety concerns but I want to get some riding hours in on these awesome sunny days. Any riders out there go on solo missions or daily rides?

I ride solo but after several crashes I have come to realize I need to find a buddy to ride with.  One thing I did learn the hard way if you ride solo you need to be prepared.

I ride solo about 1/4 of the time, have for 20 years. The trick is to load heavy on tools, repair materials and first aid/survival gear. Wear ALL the safety gear you can tolerate. Then ride conservatively.

Never had a problem.
