Happy New Year's Eve!
Here we are again at the end of another turbulent year. A lot has happened in New Zealand and around the world - good and bad - but through it all we do our best to keep riding don't we? I just feel lucky to be able to own and ride a dirt bike as many of the readers of this site can't for various reasons. But they read about them, watch races on T.V, read magazines about them and dream about one day riding one. I was one of these people once upon a time but instead now I dream about where I will go riding next and becoming a better rider. I'm not sure what it is exactly that makes us so infatuated with this sport, but if I had to choose one word, I would say FUN. I do it because it's fun. And chances are if you've stopped having fun with it, your riding days are limited. Sell your bike to someone who is currently only dreaming about it. They will thank you for it.

I've had a blast riding on various MX practice tracks and free-riding up North through the dunes and on private farms this month. Me and my bro have eyed up a number of natural hill-side jumps on his mates farm that we are going to take to with a spade next time to shape them up. If we can get hold of some rubber conveyor belt to nail down to the up-ramp of one of the bigger ones, we'll have a sweet set up for summer and I'll be sure to snap some pics for ya.
Thanks for your support throughout 2010 and your ongoing interest in Dirt Bike Tips And Pics. Party hard for new years, stay safe and..
Remember if you have any pics of you and your mates, send 'em in to me on my Dirt Bike Photos Page.
