31st December '09 - Issue #013

Seasons greetings and happy new year! I want to thank you for tuning into Dirt Bike Tips and Pics over 2009. It's been a roller coaster ride for me personally - returning to New Zealand from traveling around Europe, the loss of a family member, and settling into a new job to pay off my travel debt. Throughout that time I've done my best to keep adding interesting material to this site that you can benefit from.

2010 brings new beginnings for all of us. I will be buying a new motocross bike to hit some public and private tracks around the North Island with - can't wait! And for Dirt Bike Tips and Pics it's going to bring big changes. Thanks to you and other riders it has grown steadily in monthly visitors, and with new content, and a complete new look for 2010 the numbers will only swell! I hope you join us for the ride and find the time to offer your opinion or input on selected pages that have forms.
