if the right safety gear is worn and the dirt bike in question is ridden responsibly, they're very safe. i have friends who dirt bike comepetitively, and have had very few injuries, and definatly nothing serious :o)

as long as the person who is riding the dirt bike knows what there doing, its completely safe
