31st May 2012 - Issue #040

Hi and Welcome.

I've really struggled to open this months Monthly Dirt, this being about the 5th attempt at an opening line. To be perfectly honest with ya, I'm a bit pissed at (suddenly) losing almost half of the traffic that normally flows through Dirt Bike Tips & Pics - no thanks to the almighty Google machine. I've spent a small lifetime putting this site together and now I find myself asking "is it all worth it?".. I'm not sure at this stage, but I do know the only thing that does keep me going in times like this is You. And I don't say that to be a cheese-dick, I mean it. It's the repeat visitors to DBTP and the subscribers to this ezine that keep me hangin in there when I feel like throwing it away. So, thank you. Thanks for simply checking in and reading this ezine. I hope you can take something from 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

  • MX News Highlights.

  • Vid Of The Month.

  • 'Letter' Of The Month.

  • New Pages.

I encourage you to have your say on any of the pages that have a submission 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.

If you're not overly confident when it comes to swinging some wrenches on your bike, or you would love to improve your bike fitness - you should seriously consider The Garage Manual download. I've created it to be as clear and precise as possible with step by step photos and training videos.
