Hey guys, if you know what bike you want to get but are not sure how or where to buy one, then pay attention to this. If you don’t know what bike to get, go check out my other post titled, “What Dirt Bike Should I Buy?”
Whether you don’t know where to find dirt bikes for sale, or if you what to do after you find one I will tell you how to do both and more. Although buying a bike may sound as simple as finding the right one and going to picking it up, the finding may not be as easy as you think, especially if you want a particular bike or deal on it.
Where To Search
There are many places you can find bikes for sale, including: eBay, classifieds, online stores, sitting in someones yard, and many more. But, the most common and best place to look for most areas of where you live is Craigslist.org. If you haven’t heard of it, it is a very simple to use and free classifieds for pretty much anything.Just click on the “motorcycle” link.
How To Buy One
Once you find the one that you want, the first thing you should do is contact the person who is selling the bike; preferably using a phone, but if they don’t have one then use email. Once you talk about the bike and find out what you want to know and if you still want it then ask when you can go look at it.If you to look at the bike and decide that you want it then make an offer if you haven’t already, an if he takes it then you got yourself a bike! Make sure that you get a bill of sale/receipt and the title for the bike if the person has it. If you don’t know what bike to buy yet, check out my articles, “What Dirt Bike Should I Buy?” and “What Dirt Bike To Buy For My Kid?”
Good luck buying a bike!
Before you go to a race you must first be a physical shape. This means that you should be able to at least complete the required laps without slowing down or getting lazy. By doing that you must be exercising and working out almost everyday. This doesn’t mean it has to be intense training, but it does require some effort. A good workout would be going for a long or fast bike ride that requires more strength and gets your heart pumping faster. Swimming is also great because it works every muscle in the body. Running helps a lot too if you have the time to do that. And of course, there is always riding your dirt bike that will help. The more you ride that the longer you should be able to last during a moto. Practicing in the heat can be difficult, but it will be an advantage in those longer motos when the heat starts getting to the riders. Working out is good, but if you it too much to the point that you are sore for more than a day after doing so and continue to work-out, then it does not help you. In fact, it’s bad for you because you don’t let your muscles heal from working before. So I suggest that you find a good routine that gets you working harder, such as going to a gym if you have the time, running, swimming, or riding your bike.
Now many people don’t realize it, but being mentally strong for a race is just about as important as being physically strong. You have to have confidence in yourself to race at your full potential. Getting nervous right before the race is a very common thing for pretty much every racer, but that’s because we are all human. You must be able to focus and block out all other things before the gate drops. If you are thinking about what’s going to happen, what you’re going to eat after the race, or whose in the stands watching, then those are going to distract the entire race if you can’t get them out of your head. The goal for me is to not think about anything except what to do when the gate drops. My mind should be on the hole-shot and getting the that first corner ahead of everyone else. If you are both physically and mentally strong, then you are more than likely a step ahead of your competitors. Good luck, and have fun racing!
