There is nothing quite like dirt biking, it blows all the cobwebs away and gets work out of your head for awhile or hopefully a lot longer. But you need to make sure that you are getting the best gear for your money. Dirt bike gear does not come cheap and there is plenty of sub standard stuff out there that will give you very little bang for your Top Gear buck. Then again, a lot of the original maker’s gear can be good, but it is just so much more expensive than the pattern parts and accessories that it seems a bit pointless paying that much more for it. Of course the quality’s there but just because some of the alternatives are made by other companies that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are going to be inferior. Even if they are not quite as good, then the difference in price might still make the pattern parts worth going for.
Of course, the trouble is that unless you know someone that has used them, how do you know which are the good parts and accessories that will give you great performance as well as a considerable cost savings over the original parts. Well, probably the best answer is too look at as many dirt bike reviews in biking magazines as you can. Dirt bike magazines very often have sections where they try out new and used pattern parts and give you the low down on which are the best for the price they cost.
Many Internet dirt bike review sites also have a section for parts and accessories and you can pick up some really good tips there. After all, what is the point in spending all your hard earned money without knowing if the items that you are buying are any good or not or if you could get the same thing cheaper and just as good?
These are really great because of the fact that they are interactive. You don’t have to go through piles of dirt bike reviews in magazines or sites to find what you are looking for, you just ask a question and then see if anyone else has used the parts that you are thinking of buying. That way you can not only get a review, but probably the best review around, someone that has actually used the things and can tell you what you need to know. If you are thinking of upgrading or getting some replacement items then it is worth trying to get some feed back to make sure that you are getting best that you can afford.
