New to dirt

Hey all,

I got my licence in 2014 and bought a Ninja 300. Upgraded when I got off my restrictions 15 months later to a 2013 Daytona 675R. I still have both bikes to this day. I bought a track 13 675R in 2018 and went full on track days and also started racing with Hartwell.
Did that for a couple of years, quit my job and am now a stay at home dad. A few road riding friends decided to try dirtbikes a couple of months ago and so I decided to join them. I bought a 2012 YZ450f with rec reg (WR's are too expensive!) and just camped out at Noojee last weekend for my 1st ever ride on dirt. I think my road riding has helped me as I feel I picked it up pretty quickly, already feeling pretty comfortable on it.

Joined here to perhaps join you guys on a few rides to show me/us where the good places are to ride!!!

Cheers, Adam.

P.S. Don't have any dirt bike pics yet but here is a vid I took last weekend on my first hill climb on a friends WR250f
(Yes terrible camera angle, first time using it on my new helmet)

Welcome to Dirtriderz mateemoji106.png
Lol , I think 90% of us brought a yz450f for our first bike.

Wish I was young enough for that to have been an option!!

(Besides the issue of it having those bloody valve things....!)



Welcome to the forum and to the dirt mate

You probably want to jump on the organised rides page and have a read of the ride levels/descriptions and then jump on a suitable ride!
