    New Guy from Murfreesboro

    Hey guys my name is Jarred. I'm completely new to the Mountain Bike scene. I have raced quads for a few years, then went to dirt bikes. I figured mtn biking would be a good training tool for dirt biking.

    I purchased a used Haro Shift r5 a couple weeks ago, looking forward to learning some more about these things! Thanks!

    I also ride mountain bikes, and dirtbikes. Some of the techniques tend to crossover, others don't, but they're both lots of fun. Curious, what kind of dirtbike do you ride??

    I ride a Honda CRF250x. What about you? I guess the mtn bike riding is more so just to stay in shape. Its just too hot to ride a dirtbike right now lol.

    Thanks guys for the warm welcome!

    I have the 230f. Fun bike. It is way to hot for full face helmets, boots, and leathers right now though. Maybe I will see you on a trail sometime.
