If I had a nickel for every time someone asked me about riding alone, I'd have more nickels than the average person. The truth is that I ride alone all the time. I take precautions to mitigate risk, but at the end of the day, we are always managing risks with everything we do. For me, the benefits outweigh the risks because I get recharged when I'm…

Fuel/Oil Ratio vs Fuel Air/Ratio Fuel/Oil ratio is the amount of oil you are mixing in the gas. It's in your gas can 32:1 is a lot of oil - thick fuel 50:1 is less oil - thinner fuel 80:1 is even less oil - thinnest fuel Pick something that works for you and stick with that. We'll fine tune the mix with our fuel/air Ratio Fuel/Air Ratio is fine tun…
 
7.3 Hours I feel really comfortable on the bike - familiar Love the electric start Bike is really light - 220 lbs - feels like there is nothing there sometimes. This is a blessing and a curse - Can put the bike anywhere, but it's moving around down there and you have to flow with it. Swapping from KX250X and the 125 XC yesterday - made the KX feel …
 
Winterizing a dirt bike was on my topic list from listeners. I typed out a few bullet points and then did a google search for this to see if I saw other others, and my video from 2 years ago was the first hit. I forgot that I even did a video on it! I did see that Rocky Mountain did a video similar to mine a year earlier in 2017, but I didn't watch…
 
Here we go with my full review of the 2020 Sherco 300 SEF Factory. It's certainly one of my all time favorite 4 stroke enduro bikes.

In the video I will point out several things I really love about the bike and some things that they really need to improve upon. Hopeful…
 
First 1.5 hours on the bike. I will have at least 5 more months with the bike so stay tuned, but here are some first notes. Bike feels REALLY Narrow between your legs - like it's not eve there. That is a great feeling. Was wearing my knee braces and still could barely feel the bike. Once I turned the fork compression all the way out, the front fork…

I don’t want to own a good dirt bike… I want a freaking GREAT DIRT BIKE! These days Every major manufacturer (and even some of the really small ones) makes a good dirt bike. Some of them only make MX bikes, and while I don’t ride MX, I think it’s safe to say that 3 out of the 4 Japanese brands make fantastic MX bikes. As we move more into the “off …

I get this question a lot in my email. So many guys love the YZ250X since it’s a great platform, great motor, great forks, and it’s a cheaper bike than some of the others. Lets get another thing out of the way, I didn’t like the YZ250X, I LOVED my 2017 YZ250X… go back and watch the review I did on it. GLOWING remarks at the time. We'll set aside th…
 
Here are some of my thoughts after riding the bike for 10 hours. This is NOT my full review. Needs improvement - Air filter is hard to get in there - could easily be installed wrong and suck dirt oil filler is right under the hot exhaust - hard to do without burning battery is down below airbox. Good luck jumping this bike if needed Have to remove …

How much do you know about the handlebars you have on your dirt bike? If you are like me, you probably haven't spent a great deal of time pondering them.

It all began back in May of 2010. Karen and Kyle look back to the first dirt bike memories of 10 years ago this month. I never would have believed you if you told me that I'd make a living in dirt bikes at that time. Might as well have told me that I was going to the moon, because it would have the same level of credibility. Order your Parts from R…
