Guys are suckers when they think they are "experts".
He had agreed to teach me how to ride a Yamaha BW80 he was going to buy before he got pissed at me. It's not that easy, lol. I'm literally being ignored. Complicated situation in which I made the choice to say something that needed to be said but I was the only one willing to say it, but I said it because I care, and it pissed him off to the point where any attempt to talk to him has been ignored. I know he's most likely been filled in on me finally getting my bike because I bought it from his friend that he gave his spare bedroom to for the moment, and because of a few other weird things that happened since then but he won't actually talk to me. so, out of luck on the dirt bikes for now....

Don't need formal dirt track. I learned at 14 in friend's backyard similar to this. Don't even need dirt-bike!!!

Not sure about a 400# Ninja 500 on the dirt, but I also got my first motorcycle experience on a KE100 enduro in a backyard. Before that I rode a minibike around my Grandmothers yard. Neither one was "out in the country".

Plenty of private dirt. Decent amount of public dirt in southern Ohio. Very little to no legal dirt bike riding dirt in NE Ohio.

W Ohio has dirt forever, but it's usually guarded by a grouchy farmer and poorly restrained dog who's rather territorial because it's never been taught manners

I can understand how dirt bike riding can't work out for you right now, but maybe sometime you will have the opportunity.

Let us know what you think of the course after you complete it. You should really appreciate the safe and controlled environment you will be learning in after all of the challenges you faced on your own.

Best of luck! Have fun!
