Craft Beer // Dirt Bike Culture \\ Music
This is our version of a fresh spin on the off-road racing and riding scene. We take things a little less serious than most while at the same time we tackle the subjects no one else wants to talk about. We like to help out the off-road motorcycle community and promote the racers out there that put their heart and soul into the dream of making it. We like to write fun, humorous, serious and heartfelt stories about what interests us: dirt bikes, dirt bike racing, craft beer, and music—just to name a few. Feel free to drop us a line with feedback, share a fun story idea, or if you simply want to vent: we're here for you so fire away. Find us on Facebook, stalk us on Instagram—whatever it takes to "Keep the Buzz Rolling."
Founder, Editor-in-Chief – Dale Spangler
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 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 whilst hanging out with my lovely wife and two Boston Terriers. — 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
