In America, there are more than 8 million motorcycles that were registered in 2011. Out of all the motorcycles that we see on our roads, the most popular is the dirt bike. These kinds of bikes are very special. They can put the rest to shame. These dirt bike coloring pages are a good way for us to learn more about these interesting bikes. Let’s read on to find out all that we can about them.

1. They have Smaller Engines
In our coloring pages we will notice that our dirt bikes have smaller engines. In fact, when we look closer, we should notice that they have two different types of engines. We can find a two-stroke engine. The other one is a four-stroke engine. With a two-stroke one, we have to use more of the engine and oil. However, with a four-stroke one, we can expect to use more oil. These engines are different because they offer us different things. Ultimately, what we get out of them depends mainly on what we are looking for.
2. They Originate from the U.K
It’s surprising to me that these bikes come from the U.K., especially when I think of how trendy they have become in our country. Yet, the fact remains that they became popular in the United Kingdom back in the early 1900s. However, the races only started becoming popular in 1920.
3. They are Relatively Safe
Even though a lot of us don’t think that dirt bikes are safe, research suggests otherwise. They are Relatively safer than any other type of motorcycle that we are used to. This means that we can consider getting them for our kids if they are at the right age. We can expect a few bruises and scrapes along the way, but that is a common thing for anyone who is trying to learn how to ride a bike for the first time. Most importantly, we should expect to get the most safety out of our dirt bikes when we are off-road.
4. They are Easy to Get Used To
Not only are they a much safer option for us, but these kinds of bikes are very easy to get used to. This is why we often see more people doing tricks on these bikes than any other motorcycle. But, this isn’t the only thing that makes them easy to get used to. They also make it easy for us to maintain them. Even if we want to customize them. This is why we get to see different types of customized bikes on our coloring pages.
5. They Might be Illegal
It’s technically illegal for us to drive our dirt bikes on the main road. This is why we hardly ever see dirt bikes riding past us when we are driving on the main road. When we look at our dirt bike coloring pages, we’ll realize that our bikes aren’t designed to be used on the main road. For instance, they don’t have ant brake lights, headlights, or any rearview mirrors.
In addition to this, our dirt bikes won’t meet the required standards of emissions. This means that we can’t get a license to ride them. Since it’s not considered a motorcycle that we can ride on the main roads, we can only use a permit to drive on them.
6. They Have Unique Designs
As we will see when we are busy with our coloring pages, none of these bikes look alike. The thing about them is that they have Unique designs. They fit our different needs the way that we need them to.
