Even if you’ve been riding dirt bikes for a while, sometimes the best way to improve your riding is to ask for advice from more experienced pros. If you are a casual weekend rider, than you may be just fine without any additional tips. But, if you’re really seeking to improve your skills on the track or trail, there’s typically always some simple ways to improve your ride.
While the need for speed is a goal with most riders, a surprising approach to many riding pros is to concentrate more on technique. The adage is that if you get the technique right, the speed will come naturally. Then you will be faster than you ever would have been otherwise…and safer too.
Techniques include becoming conscious of how you ride, rather than just riding for riding sake. Some of the best dirt bike riders use visualization techniques by really becoming aware of their body positioning and what they should be doing to get the best times and overall performance.
It’s no secret that the elements you are riding in will change how you actually ride. Riding over rough terrain will be done in the standing position, so that your weight is distributed to a lower point on the bike and allow more control. When riding in the sand or mud, your weight needs to be to the back of the bike to prevent the front wheel from bogging down and to give you the better traction.
When riding in rough terrain you want to keep your back slightly arched, arms up, and elbows forward with your head over the handle bars. Many pros also try and keep one or two fingers on the clutch and brake levers and grip the bike with knees slightly bent.
While out watching the pros do their thing at competition events or just out practicing, it’s also fun to see what new designs and features their bikes have for the year. But, if you’re like many of us and on a tight budget, buying the latest model bike and features isn’t exactly in the financial forecast. That’s where upgrading your bike can come in.
