NewYork MX tracks on Long Island

Recommended Posts

Hey folks. First post here. So I did my first ever motocross track day yesterday at Island Motorsport. Needless to say, my knees are bruised and swollen, and I'm currently looking for a left radiator for a 2000 YZ125 if anybody has one for cheap. I wish I'd noticed how cheap knee/shin guards were online when I ordered my helmet and all that. Should have a pair by next weekend...

So anyway, I'm just wondering how the tracks work around here. At LIMX, the website mansions a membership fee and a practice fee, but when I rolled up yesterday, they just said it was a practice day and it was free... which sounded awesome to me. Is it always like this, or was that just a special thing because it was the day before a race?

The other track, ClubMX in Ronkonkima, has a website that's been under construction for as long as I can remember, so I was wondering if somebody could enlighten me as to the whole membership/payment goes over there. I'm not looking to race for a while. My plan is just to show up at the track every Saturday and practice.

I've only ever done go kart racing or sport bike track days, and It's just such a damn joy to not have to wake up at 4:45am, drive for 2 hours and pay for two bridges to just have a fun day at the track. I'm from Farmingdale, and I didn't even leave on Saturday until 12:45 or 1pm... most relaxing track day ever... despite the bruised knees and broken radiator... oh yeah, and a flat front tire too. I don't even know how that happened.

By the way, does anybody know of any other cheap riding opportunities on LI, or are those two MX tracks it?

LIMX charges are all on the website, $150.00 annual membership and $35.00/day or $1200.00 annual membership and unlimited practice(also opens up more weekdays). It was probably free because of the XTreme series race Sunday.

There is also a facility trying to open in Calverton, but I don't know what the status is.

Yep I saw the info on the LIMX, was just wondering if that changed. Still a good deal though. ClubMX sounds like a good deal too, though I don't think I'll have that cash liquidity for a little while. Ohwell. Thanks for the info!

      I'm currently active military and have 4 years to decide on what to do when I get out. I have post 9/11 gi bill so I can go to college or technical school for free,  and I love the northeast and saw there's a good amount of mx tracks up there, good roads for motorcycles,  and excellent mountain biking. 
      I'm here for any input on good jobs up there that some of you have, I'm currently looking at real estate but they often work weekends.  So if you have a job that you don't hate going to everyday please let me know what you do and if you want to say the good and bad parts of it.
       
      thanks in advance

      So I'm starting to get a bit sick of riding the same old stretches of quad/sxs trails along the mass/NY border, and am looking to stretch my dualsport's legs a bit more in New England. 
      I know there's plenty of legal riding in the Western Mass state forests as well as class four roads in VT, I'm hoping there are some well traveled riders who can give me some recommendations for technical bike oriented trails in the area, or point me to riding groups who seek out such things.

      MCI is pleased to announce we have been working our butts off to create what we feel is the best Stump Jumper in quite some time! We first took the opportunity to (again) hold a Fall Sand Run. What that means to you is a more pleasant enduro experience. Pretty colors, no bugs, and virtually zero over-heating of the bikes/you. The fall is the best time of the year to ride, so come ‘on out and pin that thing!

      First on the agenda, we took a long hard look at NOT sending you down 539 in the morning so you know what that means… you’re going to get something a little warmer, a little “slower” to start the day. Trust us, we engineered things so you can start you day by testing your time keeping skills. No ridiculous “Tricks” that waste your whole day, just a fun way to show all you know how to get the 00/00!

      After the “warmer” morning you are going to be treated to an amazing route that crisscrosses the wonderful forest known as Bass River. The majority of your day will be filled with fun, flowing, smooth, clean pathways that have been painstakingly maintained by the elite MCI strike force. All you old MX guys, does the words “MX special tests” mean anything to you??? Ah yes, I can hear the rev-limiters popping now… If you come out of Bass River at the end of the day without a smile welded on your face, I’d recommend selling you dirt bike and taking up knitting.
