Lessons

Off-road riding lessons for beginner to intermediate riders. Learn proper body positions, bike set-up, jumping, cornering, wheelies, endos and much more.

Why Every Rider Needs Lessons/Coaching

Riding a dirt bike can be a lot of fun, but it can be very dangerous too. Because motorcycles have two wheels, everyone who knows how to ride a bike, thinks they know how to ride a motorcycle. This is simply not true. Safe off-road riding takes skills and learning those skills can make riding more fun and more importantly, it could save your life. Most off-road accidents occur because the rider did not know the basic skills of riding. The AMA states that over 90% of all off-road accidents could be prevented through proper training and good common sense. At Midsouth MotoX, we teach both. Let our instructors teach you how to ride properly and safely.

Fundamentals

At Midsouth MotoX we teach the fundamentals of off-road riding as well as motocross. These skills are taught by instructors with over twenty years of teaching experience to students of all ages. These fundamental skills include:

  • Bike set-up
  • Bike maintenance and safety
  • Proper riding positions
  • Acceleration and braking techniques
  • Low and high speed cornering
  • Wheelies (front and rear)
  • Beginner jumping
  • Advanced jumping
  • Racing starts (for racers only)
  • Whoops

Lesson Fees

Learning to ride a dirt bike is not "natural" or something you instinctively do correctly. Learning the proper riding positions and skills are absolutely the most important purchase you can make to ensure the most safe and enjoyable riding experience. Why spend thousands on a bike, hundreds on gear and nothing on learning how to be safe on your new dirt bike? At MidSouth MotoX, just a few lessons can have you riding correctly and safely. We have taught hundreds of people, young and old, to ride, jump and have fun on their dirt bikes.

Lesson schedules are available weekly. We do our best to accommodate each student's schedule. Allow 2 hours for the lesson, ride time and cleanup time. All lessons include track fee for the day.
