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.

I’m just a guy from Minnesota that wants to help you by sharing my mistakes and how I best learned from them!
