Show us your dirt biking pics

Postby 81forest » Fri Dec 06, 2013 1:51 am

I am jonesing for dirt. Haven't ridden a bike in weeks. Super Duke is all taken apart, new baby in the house, final exams, ice on the roads, blahblahblah. Needed to take a look at some trail riding pics to tide me over until I can get the 450 out in the woods.

Awesome, what a beauty! Black rims rule. I have a sumo wheelset for mine as well. Riding it on the street really helps me get in touch with my inner negligence. :P

Here are a few. Nothing fancy, but woods riding/enduros are my favorite

Looks like some nice woods riding out there in Boston! My next bike will be a two stroke, they can be street legalized here in Washington now. Is that a 300 EXC? How do you like it?

The 300EXC is an insanely great bike in the woods. Especially if you carry a little extra weight like me.

I'm actually on a Yamaha WR450 now (not the YZ in the picture, a newer one) and surprisingly I like it a lot too. I can never make my mind up on bikes anyways. :lol:

I used to run around off road on a couple of bikes in the winter a few years ago. Always kept falling off and packed it in when I went off a 40' cliff in Turkey on a KTM 525.

That looks like an Enduroland experience?

I have a 300 EXC, there is a picture of it flying a bit and churning some dirt somewhere in the trackday picture thread on here.

Hoping to get another Enduro day in some time in the new year :)

a bit like enduroland but basically a bunch of us hired an enduro track for a whole weekend ….. and in-between some heavy drinking some bouts of enduro riding broke out…. It has since then evolved into a more organised event called - "the dirty weekend" which you can find on Facebook - i must admit i have not been to another one since but it was a hell of a laugh!

wow, I am jealous! The desert riding must be so much fun!

I rode a KX500 in the woods around here back in the late 90's. That thing almost killed me a few dozen times.

When I moved from Canada to Germany a few months ago, I sold both my WR250X and my DR650. Both were terrific bikes after spending a few bucks on upgrades. Living in Berlin now, I don't expect to do much dual sport / offroad riding in the near future --- so I picked up a Super Duke. It's awesome in totally stock form (well, except for the tall gearing).

Been a very very long time since I was last on a dirt bike. Raced and finished the 1983 Barstow to Vegas Hare & Hound (still have finisher pin,) then raced a few times in early 1984 before selling bike and moving to Arizona. Picture was taken during a race in early 1984 as a member of the 100's MC, on board a 1982 KTM 495.

Wow, loving all of these. Hey Motojunkie, couple of well set-up dual sports you had there. What suspenders did you have on the front of that DR? Love the crash vid and the tyre hop shots!

I suck at log crossings. Didn't help that my old 620 RXC weighed 320 pounds..

Thanks.. I picked up an entire front end from an '07 RMZ 250. With stiffer springs, it was the bomb on the DR and didn't require any machine work. Also had the rear shock completely upgraded to suit the front. Wicked bike. The little WR250 was lots of fun, too.

Oh, and I can hold my own when it comes to crashing, too. I don't always get back up on my feet as quickly as superdan, though:
