Good things, like successful races, jumps, and tricks or things could end badly. When riding a dirt bike, people should be taking it serious instead of goofing off. Some people goof off a lot or go to fast that they get hurt.

The good things about riding is that when people go out onto the track or woods, they begin to reduce stress. People have said that they ride dirt bikes to reduce stress and forget bad things and become more free and happy.

A lot of people who ride dirt bikes do it for enjoyment and some people just race dirt bikes and do not find enjoyment out of it. Most of the time, if a rider loses interest in the sport, they have been doing it for too long.

Within racing dirt bikes, there are plenty of sports involved with the hobby. Motocross, Supercross, Enduro cross, Woods racing. There are many different terrains used for the bikes.
