Dirt Bike Safety Tips

Dirt bikes are built for off-highway travel. That’s why they are sometimes referred to as off-road bikes. Make sure that you know the dirt bike laws in your area to protect yourself and other people while riding.

  1. Always wear the right protective gear to protect your body. Be sure to choose a DOT-compliant helmet, goggles, long sleeves, long pants, over-the-ankle boots, and gloves that correctly fit your body. Protective gear that is too big or too loose may actually cause more harm than good.
  2. Never ride or mount a dirt bike if you have been drinking alcohol or using drugs.
  3. Bikes are not toys. So make sure kids 16 and under have the appropriate adult supervision when riding.
  4. Never ride a bike that is too big for you. A bike that is too big can cause big trouble for a small rider.
  5. Do not ride alone in remote areas. Make sure you have a bike buddy. If you injure yourself while riding, you have a better chance of getting help if you have a friend with you.
  6. Be sure to ride on trails that are marked for dirt bikes.
  7. Never drive faster than your body can handle. If you’re going too fast and hit a tree, the tree will win every time.
  8. Consider taking a dirt bike safety course.
