      Dirt Bike Clubs

      Hi all,

      My 18 year old son is a dirt bike fanatic and currently rides a road registered Honda CRF450x. He is looking for an enduro club so he can enjoy riding with others and socialise.

      He has heard of a club called Ariel Motorcycle Club and is quite keen on that. But there are no contact details or membership details.

      If anyone is a member of this club or has another club in mind please let us know.

      Thanks :)

      My son rides in the Keyneton MCC. Its an enduro and trials club. He's only 9 so only rides the monthly track days and loves them. Its one of the oldest clubs in Australia and has members ranging from KTM Aus factory riders to , well, my son. Very friendly club. I'm in the Barossa so its close for me but I see you're down south so its a bit more of a trek.
      Try searching for the SAORC - their website shows the State championship dates and locations. Don't worry about the 'state' level - you don't have to be David Knight to enter! From the races I've seen over the last few years, enduros here are more like GNCC than enduros / hare & hounds in the UK. The landscape here isn't overly difficult so speed plays larger part in the results. Bogs and mud aren't an issue either but learn to ride in sand and moon dust.
      ACUSA Park has ride days - they have enduro & MX tracks. Pay on the day. I think they are in the Hill near Harrogate. I've not been so can't give an opinion.
      There's also the Gawler Club - search on Google.
      There is no trail riding here as in the UK (or was in the UK when I did it years ago) as all land seems to be private - hence organised ride days on farmers land.
      Remember if your son enters any road trials or reliability trials (both enduros rather than 'trials') the bikes have to be completely road legal. Not road legal like in the UK where the bike has the same rego as your car, MX tyres, no mirrors and just a back light (sorry Officer!) but totally legal and will fail scrutineering if its not. Likewise UK / EU helmets are fine for racing but not riding however this law is in the imminent process of being changed.
      Local events always seem hard to find but there are around so ask at the clubs.

      .....I should have added that both the Gawler Club and KMCC have ride days this coming Sunday 22nd. Gawler is at Saddleworth and KMCC is in Truro. KMCC closing date for entry is this Wednesday. If your son wants to ride a lot then buy a year licence for about $ 110 rather than having to pay $25 per day. Year licence is 365 days rather than 2016 - 17 so buying mid season is not an issue.
