Dirt bikes, also known as Trails Bikes are off-road, lightweight motorcycles built for cross country, unpaved, rough or uneven grounds. Since they are specifically designed for rough terrains, they are also equipped with rugged tires and suspension. They also have a smaller engine power than typical street motorcycles, normally less than 500 cc. 

Riding dirt bikes is incredibly exhilarating. Once you get started it is almost guaranteed that you will get hooked on this sport. First things first for beginning riders is to find a bike! It is becoming easier to find cheap dirt bikes for sale online, of course, riders who are new to the sport won't want to spend a lot of money on a bike that they will merely be learning on. Used dirt bikes are the way to go, especial when you are just starting out. There is a huge selection on the web. The Internet is a good place to get started so that you can get an idea of what you are looking for, compare prices, and find the cheap used dirt bikes. 

The main difference between a Dirt Bike and a Street Bike is the suspension. Dirt Bikes have suspension with a lot more travel than Street Bikes, with higher ground clearance and are much lighter. Knobbies or deep treads on the tires of Dirt Bikes also give better traction through dirt, mud, sand or gravel. The engine is also placed on a higher level to avoid ground obstructions such as rocks, and the gas tank installed in the mid-section for better balance. 

Buying new Dirt Bikes can be expensive. A new 4500cc Dirt Bike, for instance, can cost you as much as $8000. So if you still want to enjoy the excitement of riding an off-road motorcycle without spending too much, the best option is to go for a Used Dirt Bike. 

Unlike commuter ebikes, range is not so much of an issue with a mini dirt bike, as you are rarely going more than 20 miles at a time. This means you can use the powerful motor to its fullest capacity, going as fast as you want and still have plenty of juice left over for another go or pulling some stunts around the course. The batteries take only a few hours to charge and then you can be off to the races again for another round. 

Try to find a bike shop where you can test out models of different dirt bikes. This will be helpful in narrowing in on the style and size of bike you should purchase. Once you decide the brand you like, try running a search on the Internet for cheap dirt bikes. You will be amazed at the results. You should be able to find a used version of the style you originally fell in love with. 

Keep in mind when looking at used bikes the cost that may have to go into it if problems arise. Hopefully you are able to work with the seller and get them to be upfront and honest with any repairs that may be needed right away. If something breaks down after the purchase don't fret. The same website you found your bike most likely sells parts along with cheap dirt bikes. This same outlet that you found your bike and parts will most definitely sell some sick gear also. Stay safe, have fun and keep practicing!
