First firt experience

first day riding dirt. around the block and in the sand at the playground doesn't count. after work myself and a few others headed out to Rio Bravo for some fun. DIRT IS AWESOME! totally different from what i'm used too. leaning away from turns, using the back brake (a little), breaking the rear loose and sliding around. the sliding part was probably my fave. coming out of a turn sliding and thinking 'i got this under control...but for how long!?' still have to get used to jumping, both approach and landing. most def going back, and to the other Houston tracks as well. can't wait!

check out my dirt noobness. watch in HD.

Featuring House of Paint, also Brandt, Irak, and Eddie jumping at the end.


oh yea, this ish is waaaaaay cheaper than racing and trackdays

Nice. I got my first dirt bike like two months and have yet to take it out for a real ride. May take a day off next week and go. Been riding (falling) some trails and goofing off on my tard with street tires for about a year and am looking forward to actually having some grip with the knobbies. You might want to fix the title. At first glance I didn't know if you were going to talk about your first "fart" experience or "dirt" experience.

This is the kind of thread I like to see, I love dirt. And id rather race dirt then my street bike that I spend tons of money on mods and want in 100% cosmetic shape.

Nice video, Ive been riding dirt for about 10 years, I just got my first street bike and after going back to dirt I am an even better rider.
