Hey everyone, I am making a pit bike track/ freestyle compound at my house on 50 acres for everyone to come to, the only thing I need is tyres or some dirt if anyone knows of it? Already have a few berms, a 30 foot double and a freestyle ramp in the making. Any help will be appreciated!

Hey mate,

Where about's in gippy are you making it?

Look out for clean fill signs. People will dump dirt there for nothing.

I may possible be able to help you out with tyres. Mate owns a tyre joint. Just depends where you are.

i hope you have public liability insurance if you are letting others ride the track. you could end up getting sued for $20mill if something goes wrong.

just a heads up on something young fellas forgot to think about. all these horse people have it for people riding on there place as well.

how good is the bucket on the front of the tractor

Insurance would be way too exspensive I would think (if u could even get some). I'd suggest getting ppl to sign a waiver and not letting just anyone ride, only takes one clown to ruin it for everyone. Make sure u know who u let ride on Ur property and that they can be trusted not to do anything stupid, also probs a good idea to limit the amount of riders at any given time to reduce noise, dust etc. At least try to keep the Neighbours on side

Make sure you have a good group of people like others have said, as you may need to get all them in court to tell the magistrate that the ****-head who is trying to sue you had the injuries before he started riding at your place :p works most of the time, but if they break thier back maybe move them to road side outside your property b4 calling the Ambos :) Not not trying to worry you, but just worth noting, it only takes one spaz to ruin it for everyone....

you have to think its not just ruining riding for everyone but it could ruin your life being sued for a public liability claim in the millions because someone cant walk again.

may as well put dope in your body board bag.

Public liability insurance for a one day motorsports event is fairly cheap. Me and a group of mates ran a 4x4 comp in WA and it cost us $600 for 50 competitors and there navis plus 5000 spectators and volunteers. It does work on a scale wich is good. If we had 51 cpetitors it would have cost us 1600
