DART is blessed to have a GREAT team of instructors, providing encouraging instruction to ensure students have a positive experience. Zeke Sikich (@livingthezekelife), David Knight, Todd Hamm, Jake Dragoo, Ben Dragoo and Mark Driscoll round out DART’s core group, coaching or “scouting” (all-around assistant, cheerleader, and motorcycle picker-upper) depending on need, availability and location.
SheADV’s Shalmarie Wilson and Stephanie Terrien have already made their mark in the adventure motorcycling world through SheADV (sheadv.com), an organization that exists to inspire, celebrate, promote, and help women pursue their adventure motorcycle travel dreams. SheADV provides opportunities for women adventure riders to experience backcountry travel, and further their training in a supportive and empowering environment.
Shalmarie and Stephanie are both DART-trained and often work alongside DART staff at training events such as Overland Expo. They are also both MSF Rider Coaches, Wilderness First Responders and ambassadors for the Backcountry Discovery Routes.
Their record-breaking adventure riding the most Backcountry Discovery Routes in a three-month time period (five total) was chronicled on http://www.SSquaredLiving.com and in Bill Dragoo’s ADV Moto July 2016 article, Redline Your Life.
Steph and Shal also instruct around the country and are available to travel for private and small group co-ed and all female classes. “Dirty for Good” is one of the organizations with which they collaborate.
