How To Make A Dirt Bike Track
Learning how to make a dirt bike track can save you a lot of time and money, as well as give you something constructive to do with your spare time. You can build dirt bike tracks in many different ways, but all of them will require space and land. You can build them in the open, in woods, near water or wherever you want, and each different terrain will allow you to experience different ways of racing or riding dirt bikes.
- To make a dirt bike track, you will first need some land. If you already have land that is great, but not everyone has this and some will need to search for what they need. Before you buy or even look at any plots of land, you should decide what kind of terrain you want the track to be on, whether it is hilly or bumpy or flat and grassy. Then you can look around and purchase what you need. Be sure to check out land in different locations and haggle with the owners in order to get a good price on the land.
- When you start to make a dirt bike track, you should draw up a rough draft of what you want it to look like. Some people like small tracks with big jumps and trick areas, while others like longer tracks to race on with less obstacles and more room for speed. It is important that you decide what you want before you start building the track so that you save yourself time and money.
- Making a dirt bike track will require a lot of work on the land. You will probably need to cut down trees in the way and then, of course, mow down any grass on the track's path. After doing this, you can apply weed and grass killer on the grass so that it dies, and you can then start adding dirt on top. You will most likely have to order the dirt and spread it around along the course of the track. Make sure you have the track’s design outlined and you know where you want any hills or jumps before you start spreading the dirt. You do not necessarily have to have dirt on the track, however, and you can just keep the grass if that is what you prefer.
- Your dirt bike track will need guard rails and finishing touches in order to make it look like a real dirt bike track. Add these at the end in case you decide to make any changes before you finish. These will make the track look professional, and if you plan on having audiences, you can add stands and protective walls and fences along the edges of the track.
