About DirtBike Sam


I am Sam Oldham and I am addicted to dirt bikes

I love dirt bikes and frankly anything with a motor, especially 2 stroke motors. I started dirtbikesam.com because I love talking about dirt bikes and my coworkers were sick of hearing about dirt bikes.

For years as a child, I dreamed of owning and riding a dirt bike. Growing up on a small horse farm in the mountains of Utah, I did not get any chances to ride dirt bikes.

It wasn’t until I was an adult that I purchased my very first dirt bike. 

I can remember the that day clear as day….I was shaking with excitement. I was so excited and nervous that I asked the sales guy to load the bike in the back of my truck for me.

That was over 15 years ago….

Fast forward to today I have own lots and lots of glorious dirt bikes. 

Still to this day I will ride too long and my hands, back, arms, head, and legs will hurt and even be bleeding but I still want to ride down that single track.

I love dirt biking so much that I want to share my passion with others. 

My goal is to help other get into dirt biking and find the same enjoyment that I found.

Also, hopefully I can help someone avoid all the mistakes I have made and still make while dirt biking

Late in 2019 I was laid off from my corporate sales job at a large tech company. It was devasting at the time. I felt like I had failed. During this time, I was forced to reflect on the direction of my professional life and what I really wanted to be doing.

I made good money as a salesperson but didn’t feel happy or fulfilled in my job. I decided to stop looking for another corporate job and go after my dreams of being self-employed doing what I love.

In a push to make things work I started a YouTube channel called BackcountryLife with lots of dirt biking videos, I became a partner in a compact snowgrooming company called snowgroomers.net and I started this website dirtbikesam.com.

At times it is stressful to make ends meet financially but I truly am living my dream working on things I am passionate about.

Outside of dirt biking I love to camp, hunt, snowboard, snowmobile and work on business projects. I believe in following your passions and making time for what makes you tic.
