I've been riding dirt bikes for over 20 years now so I've learned a thing or two along the way that I can share with you that will help you gain more enjoyment from this awesome sport & lifestyle. I've made a lot of mistakes throughout this time and often had to learn my lessons the hard way, like when my very first MX bike - a 1991 RM 80 - seized the day after I bought it with all of my hard earned savings. If I had known what I know now (or had someone with me that knew) that would never have happened. Since then I've owned a number of motocross bikes which I've learned how to carry out the maintenance on myself, as I haven't always been able to afford to just take it to the mechanics. And I've always been very meticulous with my maintenance procedures too.
In terms of my riding level..? I'm no pro. But I'm a confident, fit rider and I derive a lot of enjoyment from it. And what I can honestly share with you are some basic, fundamental techniques and tips that I've been taught along the way that have helped me improve my riding skills immensely. And what I found is that once I made a real, conscious effort to implement these techniques, and combined that with a well maintained bike, my riding improved in leaps and bounds.
Have a think about this for a minute.. Would you like to..
If you answered YES to one or more of the above questions then The Garage Manual is for you.
Hi Hayden, This is such a cool book! I will highly recommend it to our Hauraki Plains College MotoX team - bed time reading! I absolutely love your book and can see what a benefit it would be for our kids, I was going to look into the cost of printing off 30, would I need to buy 30 copies from you to print them off. I don't want to be up for any copyright issues.

NOW OVER 1000 COPIES PURCHASED BY SATISFIED CUSTOMERS!
The Dirt Bike Garage Manual is an eBook which is a pdf download NOT a hard copy book. Once downloaded it can be easily printed and binded (at your own expense).
The Dirt Bike Garage Manual offers a combination of well presented, existing pages from Dirt Bike Tips & Pics.com, plus exclusive bonus material that can't be found on the site. The main difference being you can download and print it off to make your very own Dirt Bike "How To" Book. A 65 page practical manual that you can take to the motocross track or leave in your garage.
Too many people throw crazy amounts of cash at blinging up their bike before investing in themselves. You know what I'm talking about, guys who spend hundreds of $$ dollars on upgrading their exhaust system, slapping on the latest graphics and only riding in the newest gear. That's cool if you can ride well but if you're not that flash on a bike you should spend some money on getting your technique right and learning a few tricks of the trade in the garage. The benefits are huge..
A well executed wheelie is always a crowd pleaser! And as you can see in this vid, they're wicked fun. Follow the tips in this book, practice and you can do 'em too.
Thnx bro! I got the link and successfully downloaded it. I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into making sure I was happy! - Gregg.

Using The Dirt Bike Garage Manual you'll be able to follow the step by step instructions (with photos) next time you're attempting to repair your donk. Or you can refer to the riding tips section between bashing trails and tracks to keep your mind on what you should be doing. Throw it in your ute, workshop, desk or backpack.. it'll go anywhere you do.
You'll find the guts of the book will contain..
Here are a few other helpful things you can expect to find in the Dirt Bike Garage Manual.
Included are these bike-specific fitness training programs complete with videos that you can use to improve your strength, stamina, reflexes, general well being and therefore overall riding ability. Written by my close friend Peter Bristow from B3 Training - He has been a self employed personal trainer for over 10 years and knows how to transform bodies with solid results. These programs alone are worth more than the price of this book!
There's loads of great stuff crammed into this book that can save you money, wasted time and stress.. and in the process help you become a better all-round rider. I've put everything I could think of into this with the aim of providing beginner to intermediate riders something that will help you progress in this exciting sport.
I don't really do the 'hype' stuff so I'm not going to prattle on about how this will teach you to ride like Kevin Windham (cause it won't!) or prep your bike like the Rockstar Makita Suzuki Team mechanics. Instead I'll offer you a 60 day MONEY BACK GUARANTEE. If you don't like it or you honestly don't think it has helped you, I'll give your money back, no problems, no questions asked, and you can keep the book anyway.
Nice work on the book Hayden. My son will love it. I just wish there had of been something like this around when I started riding.

Your suspension settings are critical as to how well you are able to ride, yet 95% of novice riders don't learn how to adjust it to suit their body weight and/or the terrain they are riding on. If you only learn this one thing - how to dial in your suspension - you will be thankful you bought this book!
Most newby riders will happily spend $45 on a new riding shirt or cap. But for less than the price of your next oil change or a few cups of coffee you can easily access all of the valuable tips from Dirt Bike Tips & Pics when you're next out of the house or office.
