Dirt bikes are dangerous. You can break things when you screw up on the dirt track.

there is a little place at 64 and 59 behind the shell station, just a place to mess around. I plan on going to Rocky glen and buffalo at least a couple times this year. BTW aren't you supposed to be here right now??

There are jumps but it's more for atvs and they are small. A little bit of trails, it's just a place I go if I have a couple hours to waste.

There are lots of place in the Chicagoland area to ride dirt.

Joliet MX
Rocky Glen
Buffalo Range
Hopkins park
Motoland

A little further out is Mt. Carroll MX.

There might be more that I don't know about
