Making Dirtbike Sounds Really Helps

Today I realized I forgot to mention one of the things that keeps me going on my morning rides: Dirtbike sounds!
Yes, I make dirtbike sounds at certain points in my commute for various reasons:

  1. For fun! Nothing beats ripping up a corner (snow or dirt) or going over whoops  (snow or dirt) while making motocross sounds! Especially if you kick out the back tire a bit.
  2. For extra speed/acceleration. There’s a couple long (albeit shallow) climbs near the end of my ride and I know that when I make dirtbike sounds just after the crosswalk I pour on some extra speed for the climb. (In summer on my road bike, they’re street bike sounds.)
  3. There’s a section of straight dirt trail that is now covered in loose snow that I use to cut across a field. There’s no way to follow the same tire rut twice, so I’m always slippin’ out sliding and generally standing to ride. The dirtbike sounds are absolutely imperative here. On the way home, I absolutely fly across this trail and join back up with the paved bike path.

There you have it. Dirtbike sounds (or street bike sounds, in summer) make you faster. If I could record myself without being terribly embarrassed, you would see what I mean. Those who know me know I’m pretty good with sound effects, so they’re pretty realistic.

P.S. when I’m in too high a gear and just chugging, sometimes I make Diesel sounds (no kidding!)
