This Asphault Head has been converted to the Dirt

Recommended Posts

Hi,

After a few years on a R1, which is now sold

I pick up a 2005 CRF 450 tonight.

I've ridden mx tracks a couple of times, but this is my first MX bike.

It's a whole new world.

Welcome to the psycho ward, cold one!

....oh, 45 degrees is probably referring to lean angle, huh???!!!

Hope you enjoy the bike. I still ride street more than I do on the dirt, but there's more exhilaration on the dirt I think. And woods, and sand, and mountains.

And I have yet to see a tree moving 70mph heading straight for me.

'Course, they're not real quick to swerve out of your way, either.

Whatever you do, just be freakin' careful. If you're over 20, and just picking up the sport of MX, the odds that you'll be seriously injured in the next 12 months are very high.

Shawn, get with the program. If you're under 20, mom and dad's insurance is probably picking up the bill.

Absolutely, and we all know how expensive those prescription pain killers can be!

Remember to not lean with the bike on the dirt, most of the time anyways. You aren't on pavement anymore....

Welcome aboard.

I've been riding at JenningsGP for a few years, but I learned not to

lean or, out of habit, to put a knee out in a corner on a

MX bike real quick riding a buddy's bike...went down hard doing that.

I never knew you can hit sand and see stars.

I came to dirt after many years of street. I still lean with the bike too often, especially when I get tired or lazy. Sand is like water, at the right speed or height it will feel like concrete when you hit it.

If you want to lean try dirttrack, all the speed plenty of lean angle and the deeper and tackier the dirt the better. It's so much fun it shouldn't be legal. mx is fun but it's hard to race with all that stuff in the way. I prefer 4th wide open and then throw it away ......Exhilirating :thumbsup::ride:
