Summary

Many motorcyclists got their start on a dirt bike, and many more have learned the joy and freedom of trail riding and adventure touring.

Riding: Dirt riding is not just a great form of outdoor recreation, it’s a sport in its own right, and this book has the information you need to enjoy a casual day on the trails or to compete year round.
Wrenching: Dirt Rider is renowned for its “Dr. Dirt” feature, which breaks down repairs from the everyday to the highly specialized into simple, step-by-step tutorials. This book features the best of those, allowing any rider to become their own mechanic and save money.
