Offroad Dirt Bike Culture / Music / Craft Beer
Dirt Buzz is our spin on the offroad racing and riding scene. Our motto, "Keep the Buzz Rolling" stems from three things we love the most: dirt bikes, music, and craft beer. All three provide that feeling of a buzz, yet all three provide that buzz differently. Our goal is to create more awareness of the offroad motorcycle community and to help promote the racers that put their heart and soul into living the offroad dream. We serve up humorous, heartfelt, and informative stories that tackle the subjects no one else wants to write. Feel free to drop us a line to say hello, offer us your feedback, or share a fun story idea and help us Keep the Buzz Rolling.
Dale Spangler – Founder, Editor-in-Chief
I grew up in northeast Ohio and have been on two wheels since I was eight years old. After a mediocre and unmemorable pro motocross career, I decided to change gears and enter the motorcycle industry cubicle life where I’ve spent the last 25 years in the marketing mouse wheel as one of the guys behind the guy—behind the other guy. Known for painfully telling the truth (often to those who don’t want to hear it) I decided one day it was time to give the motorcycle industry news media a shot in the arm—whether it wanted it or not—and Dirt Buzz was born. Now living in the high desert of southern Idaho, in my free time I spend countless hours watching dirt bikes races, reading as many books as possible, and quaffing obscure craft beers while hanging out with my wife, two Boston Terriers Oliver and Ruby, and Chihuahua Leni. — Dale Spangler

I bungee jumped from the womb and began my assault on all things sacred in the barbaric slaughterhouse known as Massachusetts. For years I avoided being smothered with a pillow by my Mom [Vikings do that to children]. Fast forward to my current method of operation: scrawling out the gritty truths and peeling striking images out of the soft nervous tissue contained in my battered skull. Like a train, I can derail in a flash and will ruffle the feathers of a soccer mom. I bleed race gas and pizza sauce and I love a Serbian woman with ebony locks. — Jerry Bernardo
