You may not have 5 or 10 acres of land to play around with, but that does not mean you cannot make a good course. You can still make a useful dirt bike track as long as you stick to some fundamental rules. As long as you have got a little bit of land and a tractor you can make a course that will provide you years of fun riding your dirt bike. In fact, you may possibly discover that constructing dirt bike tracks is more thrilling than actually riding.

Step 1 - Get the OK Before Bull Dozing the Land

There's no use to go any further till you acquire some required permissions. Obviously, asking your folks for their approval is your first step, but there are more people that have to provide their approval too. You should be sure you obtain whatever permits are required that will permit you to legally make and use your course.

It's also important to speak with your neighbors regarding your idea. I realize it's tough to imagine, but some people do not like raucous dirt bikes drowning out the sound of their TV or extra dirt settling on their outdoor furnishings. Save yourself a lot of problems by being sure you get approval from your neighbors, otherwise there is the chance of creating a dirt bike track that you cannot use. Spending time and money constructing a nice course, only to have the local establishment shut you down, will not improve relations with your neighbors.

Step 2 - Pick the Best Location

Clay is the most effective kind of land for a track and will throw up less dirt than other sorts of dirt, but the clouds of dust will still be bothersome to neighbors. If all of them possess dirt bike motorcycles you almost certainly will not have an issue, however the probabilities of that are extremely small. If they appear a bit nervous about you building a track so close to their home perhaps you can compromise and only use it on certain days each week.

You need to build it in a place where the terrain will need less labor to develop. For instance, if you can find a place where the native terrain already has tiny hills you won't have to spend as much time with the tractor building your own personal jumps from scratch.

If you have got a choice of selecting a spot with dry dusty dirt or good clay soil, do not select a future dust bowl. In addition to loud engines, dirt will be a huge negative for the neighbors. If at all doable, strive to choose a place where an excessive amount of dirt will not end up in your neighbor's backyard.

Furthermore, bear in mind that lower areas of track will turn into tiny lakes in wet weather, therefore it's a must to plan your course appropriately. It will also help if you make the trails at an angle, permitting water to drain off rather than puddle. With correct planning you'll eliminate a ton of future maintenance.

Step 3 - Design Your Course before Getting into the Bobcat

Feel out the property and your future course by riding your bike around the property. This will give you a fine impression as to the innate flow of the land and enable you to style an adequate course layout. Dirt bike tracks ought to be made to take advantage of the natural landscape that is already present. The course must also be built according to your talent level. For instance, if you are a newbie it probably isn't sensible to make jumps that you cannot deal with safely.

Above everything else, dirt bike tracks must be made to be as safe as possible. Do not make jumps where huge trees and rocks will make riding unsafe. If you cannot get away from the rocks and trees at least place some padded barriers such as old mattresses or hay bales in front of potentially harmful items. If you are going to have an accident you would like to be pick yourself up and get back to riding. Hospital trips are not as fun as they are cracked up to be.

Step 4 - Rev up that Bobcat and Start Moving that Dirt

If you don't have a suitable tractor in your garage a Bobcat will be your next option. They can be rented, with or without a driver, at very affordable prices. You'll be surprised at how rapidly your course will take shape once you begin pushing that dirt around.

A couple of excellent approaches are to place berms at the base of already-existing hills and use natural hills as jumps. It's a sensible idea to form as many turns as possible so that you won't be in a position to build up too much speed heading into the jumps.

If you want to make a dirt bike track that will provide you years of enjoyment with very little maintenance, you ought to stick to these 4 fundamental steps. Be smart and spend as much time as needed planning the design of the course. A well-designed plan will be safer, a lot of fun, and need less labor and maintenance.

Author's Resource Box

Constructing dirt bike tracks can be very rewarding as well as being plenty of fun. Dirt bike motorcycles are thrilling wherever you race, but jumping, cornering, and racing on your own individual dirt bike track can be the most fun imaginable.
