Hello all, Dan from North Carolina here. I just made the switch from years of street bikes and road race bikes to dirt. I've had 39 different street / race bikes & spent about 4 years doing track days and racing with CCS & WERA, never been on a dirt bike. Now comes the surprise.........I suck at riding a dirt bike!! I bought a practically brand new (not even a mark on it) 2006 Honda 250x and have been to the MX track three times so far. Needless to say, I'm still virgin and suck terribly. 8 yr olds constantly roost me. The bike is bone stock, and I have plans to at least change out the springs front and rear for my weight (205 without gear) Other than that, I really don't have anything to complain about since I can't ride the thing anywhere near the limit yet. I've bought some instructional DVD's, and have learned a bit, I watch the fast guys, and learn a lot there as well. My biggest issue is jumping and body / throttle position. I'm getting better at it, but it's trial and error at this point...no real instruction or guidance....which is what I really need. Any help here? I'm currently working on turning - which I think was one of the single biggest differences between street bikes and dirt bikes. Body position is absolutely opposite to what I'm used too. Other than that, I've got my son (2), my daughter (3) and my wife on bikes with me (CRF50, DRZ70, KLX110 respectively) It's a family affair. I'm quite sure my son will be an mx rider....he is so addicted. Anyway, any tips, instruction, etc. are greatly welcome!
