    buying a new bike....maybe

    A rm250 is more setup as of a track/mx bike but it will work for a trail bike. If you just want a strictly trail bike I would look into something else

    Bike ramp?

    I just went with a yutrax 104 and it works great! Pulling off the tailgate is a pain for me due to the backup camera and all that good stuff it loads pretty easy

    I love riding

    Do some stretches before you ride. YouTube has some great videos for some stretches before you ride. You can even run a lap or 2 to get the blood flow pumping. Also very important to keep hydrated. Don’t over hydrate so you have to keep running to the bathroom while you are riding but just make sure you’re well hydrated. Eating healthier helps too (not sure how you eat) but a nice healthy meal between 1-2hrs before you’re ride helps. Also helps to bring snacks for between rides I suggest a kind bar or some kind of other energy bar with some water, you can even bring fresh fruit. And last is staying fit and doing stretches while not riding it will help so much with you’re recovery time

    Do you think I should get a bike?

    Do you think I should get a bike?

    I was just in the same situation my fiancé did not want me to buy a bike in the worst way. She was worried that I would end up getting hurt probably didn’t help that I have scares from a Dirtbike wreck as a kid. But she is lenient with everything else I have a Yfz450 a rzr1000 and a jetski but she was not about me getting a Dirtbike. Normally I like to listen and I knew if I didn’t listen I would have hell to pay. But me being me I couldn’t get this one bike out of my head and I knew I had to have it so I did what any logical thing a guy would do and bought it and didn’t tell her until I got home with it. Her reaction wasn’t really what I was expecting I could tell she wasn’t thrilled but was still happy for me knowing it was my dream. Ever since then she’s been very supportive wanting to go to the track with me and even getting me stuff for the bike. I wish I could get her into the sport but she can’t even ride a bicycle lol. Moral of the story if you really want it buy it

    Best gas jug?

    That hunsaker looks like a good quality gas jug! Little more expensive then the VP but you get what you pay for. Haha you sound like me gotta have everything matching. Lol I even bought ktm tie downs! I just got back into the sport now that I’m older and more responsible so I had buy all new gear. I’m not trying to skimp on anything. Tomorrow will be my first night to get to ride at the mx track now that I got the required gear for it.

    Best gas jug?

    That’s what I wanted to buy but there is so many bad reviews on amazon for them leaking from the bottom of the seam . Maybe amazon got a bad batch? I don’t have the patience for the spill safe cans

    Best gas jug?

    What is the best gas jug / can to use? I was looking into one of them VP 5 gallon ones but I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews on them. Apparently the bottom seam separates quite often on them. Anyone got any recommendations? Thanks in advance

    I wiped and broke my Brake lever

  10. Just prove to them that you can be responsible to own a dirt bike. I know you said you had dirtbikes when you were younger but it’s totally different when you’re a teenager and you’re gonna be doing riding on you’re own. These bigger bikes are not toys. You can seriously get hurt on them if you don’t respect the bike. Also make sure you have the proper riding gear. Once you get hurt you will understand. Know you’re limits . I got my first bike when I was 12 it was a kx65 and I was fearless on the bike until I got hurt, I still have the scares today from that wreck. Now that I’m older (28 yrs old) I learned to respect the bike and know my limits. Also gotta respect you’re parents my mom wasn’t thrilled about me getting back into the sport but I convinced her that I’m gonna ride it responsible and she understood. Sit down with you’re parents and be an adult about it tell them how you feel, let them know that you’re gonna get the proper riding gear and let them know where and who you will be riding with. Maybe try and talk you’re dad into getting into the sport with you, so you guys can spend quality time together. Another reason why they might not want you to get a bike is I’m sure you’re getting to that age that you’re gonna start driving soon and they might want you to save the money for a car / truck instead of buying a Dirtbike. But best thing to do is sit down with both of them and ask questions why they don’t approve. Best of luck!

    Worst crash to date what about you guys?

    My worst crash was when I was younger had a brand new kx65 I thought I was a bad ass. Pulled it out one day decided to take a rip down the street to show off in front of my friends. I’m banging through gears and absolutely ripping down this paved street. Started to rain so road is wet and I’m wearing no protective gear what so ever just a tee shirt some shorts and flip flops. Well while I’m ripping down this road one of the kids decides to jump out in front of me so I do everything I can to stop this bike and avoid hitting this kid. I ended laying down the bike and getting some nasty road rash. I was told I slid about 100 feet. Bike was fine got back up and rode it home lol I was more worried about the bike then me. Luckily didn’t break anything but it was still a pretty good wreck and I still got the scares from it till this day. Now that I’m older I learned that you gotta respect the bike and always wear the proper gear when riding. And when I’m about to do something stupid I just look down at the one scare I got on my left wrist lol [emoji23]

    Thank you so much with all the support and advice I really appreciate it! I’m really happy with the decision over the alpinestars! And I’m glad Rocky Mountain could price match for me. Because I needed the boots before next weekend due to going on vacation for a month
