Great piece! Sounds fantastic! I would love to do this! I started out learning to ride on dirt bikes as a teenager!

Great read! I am in the opposite situation as I am a hardcore dirt rider. I've even raced a few enduros. I just bought an 08 Harley Sportster 883L. I am starting a new adventure on the street with my hubby who bought a 1200 Sportster last summer and to be frank I'm scared! My comfort zone is dodging trees, gnarly tight trails, rock hills, sand galore (MI has a lot) roots, ruts, mud, you name it. It's all I know. It's my addiction.The street is a whole new ballgame. The street obstacles and crazy other people on the road is what gives me the fear. I love Harleys and couldn't be more excited about my purchase. It was 15 below when I bought my bike last week and have to wait until spring to ride it. Anyway, kudos Genevieve for kicking butt in the dirt! God bless.

Awesome! Last year I also took some classes on adventure riding and I was amazed at what I could do. I feel like I have become a better rider all around because of this experience. I first got "hooked" when I took the Coach to Ride class that was offered at the Women and Motorcycling Conference in Carson City, NV. I was enthralled that it was possible to stand on the pegs and steer the bike. That experience was my inspiration to take more classes. Thank you for the article.

PS. I also remember the Dirty Dozen at the Women and Motorcycling Conference in Keystone, CO, and stayed in the same place at the conference.

Wow, how inspiring! I have been riding for more than 40 years, first as a kid on dirtbikes and minibikes, and now I ride street bikes. I love riding, although many years of being a mom held me back. I'm now in my late 40s and want to ride an adventure as you did. You made me feel inspired today for what the future may hold for me.
