Helpful Dirt Bike Riding Tips
- Have manual motorcycle experience: For apparent reason, you cannot ride a motorcycle in the desert if you have never ridden before. Beginner in this context means you can ride a bike; you don’t have experience riding off-road. Since most, if not all dirt bikes are manual, you should be able to operate a manual motorcycle.
- Try out different bikes before picking one: The motorbikes are worn in at different stages. Before you settle on any specific motorcycle, try it first to get a feel. Different people have different taste. Choose the most comfortable bike for a more fulfilling experience.
- Know when to stand or sit: Anybody with dirt bike experience knows that off-road riding is all about balance. Standing offers more flexibility and control, but you don’t have to stand all the time. Sitting is an option, provided you remember to stand when going over obstacles such as dunes. Newcomers are taught on the correct sitting position when riding a dirt bike to avoid injuries and accidents.
- Adjust to two-finger operations: When you first learn to ride a motorcycle, most people learn by holding the bars with the whole hand. This means that when braking or reaching for the clutch, only the palms remain on the bar. In a two-finger operation, you adjust your clutch so that you can reach it with just the middle finger. This allows for better steering control.
Riding in the Dubai desert will leave a lasting impression. It a great activity to add to your ‘to do list’ and an excellent way to get a lifetime dose of adrenaline. Feel free to inquire about the various JustGasIt packages and booking dates.
