Dirt Bike Mad? You've Found The Right Place!
Welcome to Dirt Bike Tips And Pics - DBTP
Do you ever catch yourself driving past perfectly manicured golf courses and all you can think about is whipping your dirt bike over the sand bunkers and engraving your Dunlop rear tire pattern onto the putting green? Yes, this kind of child-like mentality is common, even amongst some of us 'fully grown' men and women who are obsessed with riding dirtbikes.
Or maybe you've grown out of your younger, reckless days and you simply want to experience the freedom and adventure of riding through the bush, sand dunes and mountain trails with your mates or family? Well if either of the above scenarios resonates with you, you've found the right place.
DBTP is now over 9 years old and growing stronger than ever. Consider this the dirt bike website that has been set up to provide helpful information and advice for riders that aren't afraid to ask. You'll find stacks of interesting and informative discussions written by other enthusiasts from all over the world - like the heated and controversial 'Two stroke vs Four stroke' pages - and you can have your say too.
So if you're just starting out, or you've got a bit of experience under your kidney belt already, you'll find something in here that hits the spot... or maybe even rekindles your urge to simply go out and ride again!
And for those of you that are injured or broken on the sideline I've also added a whole heap of cool stuff that you can waste a few hours away entertaining yourself with.
Some of the things you can expect throughout the pages of DBTP...
- The latest Motocross, Freestyle & Enduro news - Updated daily covering all the international racing events and packed with photos of the pros.
- Rider forums - This is where you can have your say or ask some questions. You won't find any crap in here or threads of abuse.. just interesting and original discussions.
- Crash videos - Check 'em out cause these are gnarly! I also regularly update the 'best of' videos section so it's worth checking back every few weeks.
- Track building tips - Pointers on layouts, permits, drainage and safety.

- A world-wide directory of places to ride - Yep, you read that correctly. You won't find any tracks listed in Moscow, Iceland or Timbuktu (where is that?!).. but you will find an extensive list of motocross parks, enduro loops and MX clubs from English speaking, dirtbike loving countries around the globe.
- .. and heaps more cool stuff!
Like the rest of you, I ain't pro, but I love this crazy sport of dirt bike riding. Ever since I was a young kid I've always been obsessed with it and believed it has to be the coolest motorsport in the world. However, it requires time, practice, passion and usually a broken collar-bone or shattered ankle to become a good rider (or a fractured vertebrae in my case). Those factors are up to you and a bit of luck, but the basic 'how to' can be found right here.
If you think DBTP is worth a 'thumbs up' then be a champ and click the 'like' button up on the top left there. It'd also be pretty cool if you could join a few thousand of us on Facebook - it's a great place to interact, watch the latest dirt bike vids and check out some sweet photos!
So get on ya bike and take a look around - there's plenty of good dirt to keep you occupied. And I'm constantly updating DBTP by looking for more interesting stuff to keep you coming back.
