Back Issue -- Welcome to the August edition of All-OffRoad!
Your #1 Source For Recreational Dirt Bike and Dual Sport Information
A monthly on-line Dirt Bike Magazine (E-Zine).
(Current Issue HERE)

Well, "WE'RE BACK!", mostly. It's the end of August and this is really the start of our September issue. The new house is populated, the new baby is screaming, kicking and not sleeping much. I have the computers set up and will soon have my ISDN connection restored.

Over the last several months I've been flooded with e-mail from all our readers asking for more. More what? More information on racing, information for begineers, information about vintage bikes, information about just about everything. Let me assure you that we're working on it. 

Don't forget to check out our back issues.

What's new
CZ Berm ShotFor those of you interested in racing enduros, we have Ken Murphy writing his new monthly column about racing. In our last issue he provided us with information on time keeping. Stay tuned to see what else he comes up with.

For those of you interested in vintage bikes and racing we have a new column courtesy of George Vadney, one of the guys that belongs to a local vintage club. Also, look for the clubs event schedule and other club news here.

Review: Keihin PWK "Air Striker"In this issue: For the longest time I've had problems with the idle curcuit on my RMX 250. Well, all that's changed. I've gotten rid of the stock Keihin PJ carburator in exchange for the Keihin PWK "Air Srtiker." This one of the best modifications I've made to date. Details coming soon... As usual, don't forget this month's Crash -n- Burn, courtesy of Brad. This month's crash is from Ocotillo Wells.

Don't forget to checkout our three online discussion groups. The first is our "Classified Ads" for you to post anything dirt bike related that you want to sell. The second is "Let's Go Riding", here you can post dates for when you're getting the dusty dirt bike out and where you're going riding so others can meet you there. The third on is "upcoming Events" it's available to post any upcoming events (enduros, motocross races dual-sport rides, etc.) of which you are aware.

Also, the All-OffRoad mailing list is available. Find new places to ride your dirt bike, new riding buddies to moto with, upcoming events (enduros, dual-sports, etc.) and the latest updates to All-OffRoad right in your own mailbox (note: subscriber's addresses are not available to the public).

What else do we have in store for this month? Dirt Bikes, Dirt Bikes, and more Dirt Bikes with some Dual Sport action thrown in for fun. The months featured photos (most likely) will be more trials photos. We'll have more of your favorite Crash and Burn pictures.

In the area of Tech-Tips, I'm doing some work on my Suzuki RMX250. I hope to solved the idle (or lack of) problem by replacing the carburetor. I'm going to be swapping my FMF Gold pipe for a Pro Circuit Platinum series pipe. If all goes well, I'll also swap in the thinner head gasket. Bryce finally got his KLX300 off-road, after installing his new Pumper carburetor. Also this month he hopes to add a larger IMS gas tank. Rumor has it that Darcy is playing with his KLX also. He seems to be taking the suspension components from a KX dirt bike and adding them to his hybrid racer dualsport machine. Yes, I'm still working on the comparison between the Baja Designs Dual Sport Lighting Kit and the Malcolm Smith Motorsports (MSM) Dual Sport Lighting Kit. For know lets just say we are very unhappy with MSM (Brad's bike still isn't working and MSM hasn't helped a bit).

What Are We About
All-OffRoad is designed with the weekend warrior type of off-road enthusiast in mind. Currently our focus is going to be Off-Road Motorcycles better known as dirt bikes (or dirtbikes depending on your preference). This includes all topics for Dirt Bikers including articles on Trail Riding, Dual Sport/Dual Purpose Motorcycles, Riding Enduros, Motocross Motorcycles, eventually maybe even information on Trials Riding. We love dirt bikes and most everything related to them. We feature everything from trip reports to dirt bike pictures, including product reviews.

Our original intention was to provide information for all types of off-road enthusiasts including: 4x4s, dirt bikes, mountain bikes, you name it. After checking out a lot of other sites, and spending a couple of months seriously doing this, we've made the decision to concentrate dirt bike motorcycles (for now), including information about off-road and dual sport riding and dual purpose motorcycles.


  1. In order help provide more quality articles, MX South has agreed to provide a 20% discount each month for the best submission. Check out the details now!

  2. It makes no difference if you ride a dirt bike, a dirtbike, a dual sport motorcycle, a dualsport motorcycle, a motocross bike, a trials bike, a rat bike, or even an ATV or quad as long as you ride.
