    I've done some Motocross, however it is somewhat boring to me to go around and around in a "circle" all the time.

    Mostly enjoy woods riding with friends. The races were fun but I enjoy getting out with friends the most.

    Ridden in Maryland, Pa, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Colorado, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, Missouri.

    Been a good ride...

    Each to their own,I prefer the "round in a circle" myself,I love the intensity of the battle after lining up alongside 30 + other guys and going full on,I done some Enduro here in the UK a few years back and the Beach race 4 time,and I can tell you that David Knight is some badass pilot!

    I am without any dirt bikes at the moment, yet I've had my share & learned great motorcycle control sliding around in the dirt, climbing hills and all that.

    It's the very reason I'm alive today, as I progressed up to some very exciting road racing. And the high speed crashes that go along with that kind of riding. Heh!

    So if any of my current bikes get dirty then by some bizarre viewpoint they are dirt bikes :)

    Grew up on motocross bikes, but being old (40! Yikes!) and a torn rotator cuff FML and I dont ride anymore. But I do keep up very much with the sport of motocross. Bikes through the years, lets see,...81 RM80, KX80, KX125, KX100 (play bike), KDX250, '96 KX125 Ricky Carmichael Splitfire replica, CR250, and yet another KX125, and a DR-Z400.

    I'm 52 :). Yup the shoulders are just now showing signs of problems.

    Lolhare:
    Typical GNCC: 30-50 riders in a class. Dead-engine start. Crank the bike and race across a field to the single track trail in the woods. Everyone funneling down to one entrance into the woods. Then race each other for another 3 hours straight. No check points. No stops. No "average speed". Race to the end. Typically 80-100 miles.
