Riding CRF450R Dirt Bikes with Kendall Norman

Monday, January 30, 2012
This weekend I ventured off to Santa Barbara, California to do a Chad Reed-style training camp which basically entailed riding the heck out of dirt and push bikes at and around Zaca Station. To my surprise, Sunday, off-road racing ace and Baja 1000 champ Kendall Norman showed up to put in some saddle time. Afterwards he invited me to do “Moto 2” at his friend’s nearby ranch.

Updated Track Layout at Racetown 395

Friday, January 13, 2012
Yesterday I visited Racetown 395 to spin some laps aboard our long-term Kawasaki KX250F as tested in the 2012 250 Motocross Shootout. Considering the loamy consistency of the dirt plus the fact that staff routinely modifies the layout make this high-desert track one of my favorites. Scott and the rest of the crew have again tweaked the layout and have done a fine job offering a variety of different jumps, turns and a few wide-open straightaways.

Ride Dirt Bikes at Night at Perris Raceway

Thursday, January 12, 2012
We’ve still got a ways to go until we’re able to enjoy the long sun-soaked days of summer. Until then Perris Raceway offers dirt bike riders the opportunity to ride their motorcycles after the sunsets courtesy of overhead track lighting system.

Still, it’s way better than playing Playstation at home.
