More people than you are aware of make dirt bike tracks on their land. It gives them a chance to sharpen and perfect their riding and jumping skills without being in the spotlight at busier public tracks. The most common type of track made on personal land is motocross and it's also the simplest variety to create. It's simply a matter of observing the lay of the land, noticing where the small hills and elevations are, and incorporating the native contours of the property into the planning of the track. In fact, the more elevation variations, slopes, and small hills you have got on your land the better your dirt bike track will be.

Depending on the total amount of property you've got access to, you may only be in a position to make a few jumps along with a berm or two. But, it's not essential to own acres and acres of property; you can still build a tiny training course with a half acre plot or less. Without having access to additional acreage you'll be restricted to creating a circular or horseshoe-shaped course, but it can still be fun and educational. Five acres of land is ideal and will permit you to design it almost any manner that you can imagine.

Step 1 - Incorporate the native contours of the terrain into your planning

Riding your dirt bike around your land, using the native lay of the land, is your first step. This will let you know where the natural flow of the course takes you. Let the terrain be your guide on how the course ought to be laid out. Use some existing hills as jumps and the base of others as berms. Observe where the elevation differences are and the way they may be employed to your benefit.

Step 2 - Plan everything in advance

Your goal should be to include the native landscape into the planning of your course. Keep this at heart as you are riding around the property. Plus, you will want to consider a few other important things. Water drainage is one of the most important concerns. Low lying regions can become tiny lakes or swamps during wet weather. It is best when you can steer clear of these imminent mud holes while designing your dirt bike course as it will permit you to be in a position to ride more frequently and require less course repair. Also, all riding trails ought to be at a small angle, just enough to permit the water to drain off quickly, which will keep your course drier.

Step 3 - Get the mandatory permits and approval

First on your list ought to be obtaining approval from any neighbors within the area. Without having their approval there is certainly no use in going any further. Some of your neighbors might be less agreeable than others and you don't want to spend your energy and cash on a project which will later be closed down by the local powers that be. Once you get their approval you'll want to obtain any permits that may be required and making sure you will not be breaking any community laws.

Step 4 - How much is your dirt bike track likely to cost you?

It could cost a lot more than you might think, so estimating the whole price to completion is crucial. If you have got several acres of land it could cost a few thousand dollars to lease the Bobcat and pay for gasoline and other equipment. Work out the whole price before spending one dime and make sure it's within your budget. After you have got the mandatory approval, permits, and cash it's time to lease the equipment and start creating the course.

Step 5 - Incorporate safety into your planning

When creating a dirt bike track safety ought to be the number one consideration. Riding dirt bike motorcycles is not the safest sport in the world, so place your jumps in wide open locations and not around giant trees and rocks. But, any rocks or trees that may possibly come into play ought to have old rubber tires, mattresses, or bales of hay as protective barriers. These cushions can possibly prevent injuries. It's also a smart idea make use of these protecting barriers around soft berms in view of the fact that these can be places where possible loss of control can occur.

Step 6 - Start building the course

The actual track building process can take anywhere from one or two days up to one week or more dependant upon the size of your property. Utilize the Bobcat to first layout the general course of the complete course, remembering to make slight slants within the trails for drainage. After the complete track has been graded it's time to start building specific berms and jumps. Use the Bobcat to grade hills to your skill level and don't create jumps beyond what you feel safe with. Within several days you'll be having fun using your track while improving your riding abilities as well.

Constructing a dirt bike track will be almost as thrilling as riding dirt bike motorcycles. The important factor is to plan your course with safety and low maintenance in mind.
