Sand Dune Dirt Bike Withdrawl

Thursday, July 14, 2011
As the summer months drag on I begin to long for the smooth flowing lines of my favorite riding spot, Glamis. With the temps reaching triple digits even after the sun goes down from May to the end of September, I’m forced to put away my dirt bike paddle tire and count the days until our first weekend outing of the season, which is usually mid-October. The last few weeks I’ve been riding at the local MX tracks wishing I was blasting through the dunes in search of the next 4th gear floater. JC just recently just went to the dunes of the Oregon Coast (check out his 2011 Sandfest Recap), but for me there is only one place to get my sand fix.

Until the temps drop on the golden sands of Glamis, motocross tracks and dune videos will have to do. Check out this GoPro HD video I shot on my Kawasaki KX450F the day after Thanksgiving in 2009, I think it captures the beauty of the dunes and shows how much fun the riding is. Enjoy.
