Post Dirt or Tarmac?

C'mon... I know everyone has a preference.

Tarmac for me... I always run myself off the road on the dirt.

Dirt, snow, mud, sand, or tarmac. I like them all. I just don't care for going around and around and around and around on a track (oval or road course). Give me a rally stage or unknown road.

With some room and a little care (not to mention the right tires), ice can be a blast. I just don't like cruising down a road and finding that invisible patch of black ice jut before the turn.

Definitely tarmac for me. Whenever I want to play in the dirt, I fire up my YZ250.

Another factor is that I've not found any suitable gravel roads near me. They are long, straight and boring. Everything is either a dirtbike / ATV park or a muddin' ground for big trucks.

I'd go with tarmac, or rather track racing.

In my opinion (whether on tarmac or in the dirt), if you arent sideways through the corner, then you arent having enough fun.

I like 'em both. I guess if you want to know which I like better... it really depends on my mood at the time. I've been dying for another track day, but I'm also realy psyched about the Feb. 17th rally-x.

I WANT IT ALL!!

Dirt, tarmac & snow for me. When I'm on the race track I like my tarmac wet. I love a loose car.
Rally drivers do it sideways!

Cool

I usually start out on tarmac, but when I push too hard, end up in dirt.
