During intense off-road experiences, you need to ensure that you can control your dirt bike and remain safe.  Read the following advice so you know what mistakes to avoid.

The 4 Dirt Bike Riding Mistakes You Don't Want to Make

Dirt bike riding can be an intense and exhilaratingly fun experience, but even the most expert riders can face challenges. That is why it is important to be prepared and focused and not rely solely on skill to perform and stay safe. Today we want to discuss the top mistakes that dirt bike riders make and how to avoid them so that you can stay safe and perform well.

Mistake #1:  Lack of Regular Maintenance on Your Dirt Bike

One of the worst and most dangerous mistakes that you can make is to prolong or postpone maintenance tasks in your dirt bike. Your dirt bike needs to be in top shape and in great conditions in order to truly perform and prevent any type of mishap from causing harm to your bike and your safety. In order to stay on top of maintenance tasks, you should always ensure that all the electrical systems are working well and that the brakes remain in working order at all times. Check the battery and clean it when necessary. The tires should also be changed regularly since this is what gets worn off very fast when riding on trails and rough conditions. It is also important that you keep the air filter clean and that you perform regular oil changes and check all the fluids in your dirt bike.

Mistake #2: Forgetting to Regularly Check and Change the Oil

This is another of the most harmful mistakes that you can make. The engine is an essential part of your dirt bike and it is the one in charge of helping other components work well and keeping your dirt bike running. Without proper lubrication, a lot can go wrong. That is why it is necessary that you check the oil before you head out and change it when you come back from long off-road riding experiences. In general, your dirt bike requires an oil change around every 5-10 hours of operation. However, every dirt bike engine has specific requirements and you should follow your manufacturer´s recommendations. Always use high-quality products based on the specifications in your owner´s manual and the type of engine in your dirt bike. For two-stroke dirt bike engines, AMSOIL´s DOMINATOR® Synthetic 2-Stroke Racing Oil is the best option. It burns clean and helps protect against friction, intense temperatures, and extreme handling. AMSOIL also carries synthetic oil for four-stroke dirt bike engine and different oil grade needs.

Mistake #3: Riding Your Dirt Bike Without the Proper Protective Gear

Wearing the proper protection can prevent an accident from becoming a tragedy. No matter how experienced you are, an accident can always be around the corner. That is why it is better to be prepared for the unexpected than to be sorry. Part of that is making sure you protect yourself in the case of a fall. Your helmet is an essential part of your protective gear and should fit perfectly, not loosely or too tight. There are also special dirt bike riding suits that have extra protection around the knees, elbows, and shoulders to protect those areas in case of an accident. Also, ensure that you wear the right footwear, do not ride your dirt bike with shoes that have slippery soles or that lack grip. Even if you aren´t riding very far you should be careful and never risk your safety.

Mistake #4 Not Being Focused on the Road

Make sure that you are in control of what you are doing without letting your mind wander off or allowing yourself to get distracted. Not being focused on what your doing is a mistake that can cost you your life. Dirt bike riding requires full focus and attention to both the road and your dirt bike. You must be able to stay alerted while maneuvering and ensuring that you can quickly react to any unexpected road conditions. Never ride your dirt bike if you aren´t feeling well or have a lot going on in your mind. The second you get on your dirt bike all that should be in your thoughts is the bike and the road. That´s all.
