30th September 2010 - Issue #021

Hola fellow dirt riders and a big dirty 'ol welcome to all of the first timers to this e-zine! It's been two months since the last issue - as some of you know I disappeared on holiday overseas last month. But I'm back and I have committed myself to improving Monthly Dirt and making it more worthy of your time.

There have been some huge changes to Dirt Bike Tips & Pics over September, the most obvious is the completely new look. It's been a long time coming.. I hope you like it. Feel free to let me know what you think on my contact me page. Right, let's get into it..

If you like this e-zine, please do a friend and me a big favor and "pay it forward." If a friend DID forward this to you and if you like what you read, please subscribe by visiting... Monthly Dirt


  • Updated pages and new pages.

  • MX news highlights.

  • A funny.

  • Vid of the month.

Now if you don't mind laughing at someone else's expense every now and again you will love this.. Edgar's fall I saw this while I was in Mexico. Apparently it made television programs all over Latin America and the kid is now famous.. With over 20 million views on Youtube how could he not be? Nothing to do with dirt bikes I know, but funny stuff!

I encourage you to have your say on any of the pages that have a submitting form at the bottom of them. It's easy to do and it helps make this site more interesting and dynamic for everyone. If you want it published as a page you have to make sure your story has a bit of guts to it though, two sentences won't cut it sorry.

New Pages

  • Forum Hub - As you may know some of the pages on DBTP have submission forms at the bottom so people like you can have your say. Well, now I've made a hub that contains the pages that have the submissions so you can choose a topic and click through to it to add your 10 cents worth. Dirt Bike Forums

  • Links Page - Anyone that has a quality website and wants to exchange links with DBTP can use this page to get things rolling. Dirt Bike Links

There it is.. and there it goes.. another month down and one step closer to a promising summer of riding here in New Zealand. On a personal note, with a bit of luck I'll be buying a new bike in a couple of weeks so I'm feeling like a 9 year old on the lead up to Christmas day. Nothing like mounting a new steed!

Thanks to all of you who contributed to DBTP over the last 2 months through the submission forms. There are some top quality discussions evolving that are making for some great reading. Till next month..
