Article Body:
There are various dirt bike competi
tions like Motocross and various tr
ial events where variants of a larg
e number of dirt bikes compete with
 each other.

An interesting fact to note is that
 dirt bikes have no number plates.
Every year the US Department of Mot
or Vehicles issues green stickers e
specially for dirt bikes. Another i
mportant fact to take care of is th
at dirt bikes are not allowed on ci
ty streets as they are only allowed
 to be ridden on off-road tracks.

Different Types of Dirt Bikes

Some of the bikes that you might se
e when it comes to dirt bikes are Y
amaha YZ, Yamaha WR, Yamaha DT, Hon
da CRM, Honda CRX, Kawasaki KX, Kaw
asaki, KLR, and Suzuki RM, amongst
various others. Though al these bik
es have their own distinctive featu
res they have one thing in common.
They are light, strong, and have th
e ability to handle the roughest of
 tracks.

The Composition of the Dirt Bike

Dirt bikes are mainly built of eith
er a two-stroke engine or a four- s
troke engine. In a two stroke engin
e the mixture of oil and gas is ign
ited in the cylinder, and thus not
only does the bike get powered up,
but the engine is also lubricated i
n one go. The four stroke dirt bike
 engine is like a smaller version o
f the car engine wherein, the gas i
s ignited but the oil can also be u
sed again.

If you are looking for differences
between a normal street bike and di
rt bike then you have to look no fu
rther than the suspension of the di
rt bike. They have a higher ground
clearance and not only this; they a
re much lighter as well. Their tire
s are also different, and have deep
 treads in them, so as to; offer th
em a better amount of traction thro
ugh, gravel, sand, dirt or mud.

Moreover, the engine of the dirt bi
kes is also placed at a much higher
 level as compared to normal bikes,
 to protect it from various obstruc
tions like rocks etc. Also, the gas
 tank installed in the mid-section
offers it a better balance.

Choice of a Dirt Bike

There is a large amount of differen
ce between what you want and what y
ou really need. The one significant
 parameter that will determine the
kind of dirt bike that you want to
buy is dependant on your own skill
sets. If you are a beginner it woul
dn’t be a good idea for you to bu
y a mean machine that you have seen
 speeding its way to glory in a Mot
ocross Race.

The purpose of your purchase is als
o a key determinant of the kind of
dirt bike that you purchase. If you
r objective is to have fun just rid
ing with your friends and going out
 on trail rides then, you definitel
y do not want to buy a full blown r
acer dirt bike. On the other hand i
f you want to buy the bike, primari
ly for a racing purpose then you mu
st surely get a true dirt bike racer.

End Words

Everyone is actually on a budget. N
obody wants to buy a dirt bike that
 is not within their means. Moreove
r, if you are on a minimal budget a
nd cannot find a dirt bike to suit
your purpose; then it’s best that
 you tone down your demands a littl
e and think of a middle-weight, sli
ghtly used dirt bike.
There are times when some of the be
st buys, in terms of dirt bikes, ca
n turn out to be some of the most u
nderrated bikes that are available
in the market. Whatever the bike yo
u buy, it’s important that your o
bjective is to have some fun. Donâ€
™t think beyond having an exciting
time, riding your bike!
