Other hobbies you did or do besides riding dirt bikes

Recommended Posts

I use to drag race, lots of money for short period of time,race karts, rode a harley. Now i do track days in a porsche, get out to the gun range once in a while but i have always wanted to ride moto just for fun so im making the plunge. Anyone regret giving up another hobby to ride mx? At 38 im looking to enjoy time riding with my son, being at the track just practicing no racing seems like a great father son day.

I am the same age and do the same thing, but we do race as well. I did the same thing with my Dad and wouldn't trade those times for anything.

My other hobbies are hunting, fishing, and long range precision rifle shooting.

I enjoy hunting, used to do paintball (really freaking expensive), but i also have a harley (my favorite of the two bikes). But then one day i finally got to go down to go riding with my buddies for the first time (on an old beat to piss dt175) and had an absolute blast on it. I definitely don't regret giving up paintball, the idea of it just isn't fun to me anymore. My harley is my commuter now and my main way of getting around (when winter is done).

My hobbies have included martial arts, surfing, fishing, drag racing, autocross, marathons and triathlons and NOTHING can compare to motocross for me. I now race with my two Sons and my only regret is that I didn't get back into it a lot sooner than I did, as I raced from 1975 to 1984 and didn't start back until 2006. It is by far the best.

Im psyched to get going also. My son races karts also but he loves riding quads and dirt bikes so i hope we get to spend a ton of time doing this. I may be thinking to far a head but when im 40 i may try a motox race also, even if i come in last just to give it a shot.

I like to run mud runs/obstacle races like the Tough Mudder or Warrior Dash. Grab a few friends who don't ride but like to get dirty and it's probably the funnest thing i've done.

I fly RC planes too. Thousands of dollars worth of them.

Now just got back into dirt biking. I had some mini bikes/dirt bikes when I was a kid.

Now have three boys and a couple of them have some interest. I've always wanted to....so now I do!

47....almost 48 years old.

Freeride mountain biking is one of my favorite things to do and I just started dusting off the BMX bikes again to work with a buddy's two boys. Hiking & xc running is a nice escape for me from the daily grind but my two newest ?hobbies? are souly for the love of my daughter who has really taken a liking to Razor scooters and roller skating. I have crashed my ass off on my recently bought flea market razor while trying to show off and Im REALLY dreading the day I come across a set of cheap used roller blades in size 12 lol.

I ride/race but have gotten the DS itch. I can leave from my house and explore some awesome areas, no truck needed. Just throw the fishing rod on your back and your off. I can access 100s of areas that other vehicles cant. I enjoy camping a lot too. Something about being away from people every so often that just brings you inner peace.

Dude Yoga is no joke. My ex was really into it and got me to try and all I have to say is it made my muscle fatigue much better but damn it hurts to put body parts in positions they were never supposed to be in.

I play golf and curling. Probably the only guy on this site that curls. I also like to work on mini bikes. I've got an 85 yz80, 01 kx 60 and a couple of old pw 50s on the go. I love motocross bikes!

I have a traxxas summit rc truck and a mountain bike that I enjoy riding alot. The rc truck was an ebay find so I got it at a good price, I get together with some of my riding buddies that have rc trucks and we drive when we dont have time to go ride.
