Did it on my few acres.

Most of it didn't go the way I'd planned, standing there looking at things. Glad I didn't put too much work up front into things.

By riding I ended up placing trails in spots that I rode through, instead of attempting to force myself to ride on trails that were misplaced or misshaped. Not that there wasn't some work done to clear brush and such, just that by riding the grounds I found the places I would ride a bike over and through.

You can add jump ramps and berms and whoops later.

You don't like the sound of my motorbike?

Well, meet the leaf blower.

No in answer to your question, I don't play well with others.

I originally wanted to make a rally course in my back yard since I was real young. I figure a motorcycle trail would be more realistic. I would do my best to keep everything quiet and possible plant trees to prevent neighbors from being disturbed. I like the trials idea though. That would be something I could do easily and wouldn't take up too much space.

You don't need much room, just be creative!

And sound is the biggest enemy. Usually if they can't hear you, they don't know you are there.

No pictures, but when I was a kid I talked my dad into letting me build a few little obstacles to play on. My parents have 2.5 acres, and my dad had an underground construction company. He brought a few scrap pieces of storm drain pipe, some left over cribbing lumber and a couple truck loads of rock. Wasnt much, but it was fun to play on if I couldnt get my mom to let me go out in the desert.

20 years later, the rock and pipe is still there and Id like to get a trials bike one of these days. I only live a half hour from my parents so itd be easy to go setup a little bit of a practice area at their house.
