Hi everyone... are there any Chicago areas riders that can help with getting into riding dirt please??? Where are the tracks? Private? Outdoor? Indoor? Even people to ride with? I have about 2 months to decide if it’s worth getting a dirt bike or go with a motard or something. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I was a Chicago rider until 1980.  Stuff was starting to get closed even back then.

I have been a spectator at Byron. Place looks scary for a newbie rider like myself. Probably would play in the kiddie section lol

I have also heard of Aztalan the never been. 

I’ll look into Generation MX. Thank you!

There may still be some stuff in southern WI.  Before it was developed into a state park we used to ride the Major Bong area.  Forest and swamps, but this is back in the late 70s.  It is now Richard Bong State Park and from what I understand they have a riding area in the park.

I’m in Chicago but just have a supermoto. Fun around the city

I came to the conclusion that I can’t have a dirt bike since I can’t get much use out of it. So yeah I’m currently looking for something along the line of a supermoto. 😁 What do you ride?
