One of the biggest threats to the future of motorcycles is the loss of motocross tracks around Australia due to the noise issue in areas of urban sprawl.
Young MX riders are the next generation of motorcyclists.
Getting kids on motorcycles helps develop their hand-eye coordination, balance and alertness.
But rapidly expanding urban areas are threatening the existence of motocross parks and in some states, it is now even illegal to operate a motorcycle on private property within 100m of your fence line.
However, the growth of quiet electric motorcycles and balance bikes for children could be the answer to this growing problem.
