Is It Hard To Ride A Dirt Bike?

Learning to ride a dirt bike is not hard if you get proper training. Whether you’re on a dirt bike with a clutch or not, you only need to focus on the basic controls of the bike. These include the throttle, clutch, and brake. Balancing on a dirt bike is a similar feeling to balancing on a bicycle.

Dirt Bike Training Classes That Are Fun & Safe

Learning to ride by yourself can get boring and difficult. I spent years trying to get better on my own. After spending hours, days, weeks, and months researching, watching countless videos, and practicing on the bike, I started getting the hang of it. The more I rode with faster riders, the more I had to learn to try and keep up.

If I had only known what the proper techniques and skills were from the beginning, it wouldn’t have taken as long to become a confident and skilled rider. I now understand what it takes to start from scratch and safely ride a dirt bike.

Learning to ride doesn’t have to be scary or take years. It just takes the right steps in the right order. You’ll learn how to do each step and easily understand how your bike works to quickly gain confidence in The Virtual Dirt Biker School.

Learn More: Ride More

Honestly, it makes me frustrated and sad that so many dirt bikers simply don’t want to learn how to do things the right way.

They’d rather pay hundreds or thousands on a “band-aid” fix or just keep riding with a problem.

I hope that you’re not one of these riders.

So, this is why I created Motocross Hideout.

The slogan “Learn More: Ride More” is simple. The more you learn (about your bike/riding/maintenance/tuning), the more you’ll be able to ride. And then it works if you turn it around: The more you ride, the more you’ll learn/feel/understand how your dirt bike works.

I’m Kelley Fager, and my goal is to help you become a safer and better rider by teaching you the basics. I simply break down each process in way that’s easy to understand.
