Ever since people started riding dirt bikes, the majority of people out there have viewed them as bulky, rowdy, and dangerous. If you downsize any of these to a smaller size, you end up with a pit bike, and recently they have become more popular with both children and the elderly.
For a long time, pit crews have been looking for ways to get around the racing pits quickly and easily. Of course, these pit crews had a lot of mechanical know-how, and it was only natural for them to invent a bike that was compact enough to whiz through the obstacles presented in the average race pit. The natural progression from that was for the racers themselves to get involved, and before you know it we have pro racers zooming around on these little bikes, vying to see who has the fastest, flashiest ride.
If you have a child who has expressed an interest in motorcycling, whether it’s from watching the big bikes whiz by on the freeway or watching races on TV, a pit bike might be a great alternative for your child. They’re a much safer choice than a big motorcycle since your boy doesn’t have a great fall height. Even so, you should constantly make sure your girl is wearing the proper protective gear to prevent her from getting hurt.
Today, however, pit bikes are even more popular with adults than with children. People all over the world are modifying these bikes to be as loud and powerful as possible. There are regular race meetings among enthusiasts and entire forums dedicated to the hobby. These communities tend to be very helpful, and if you’re ever in doubt about the recovery, this would be a fantastic place to start.
