DART is blessed to have a GREAT team of instructors! Longtime assistants Josh Jewell (@joshsjewell) and Tobin Vigil (@spokesniffer) have been with Bill since the school began. They provide calm, encouraging instruction, ensuring students have a positive experience. Zeke Sikich (@livingthezekelife) often joins Josh and Tobin to help coach, and David Knight, Todd Hamm, Benson Cessna, and Mark Driscoll round out DART’s super group, coaching or “scouting” (all-around assistant, cheerleader, and motorcycle picker-upper) depending on need, availability and location.
Josh is owner of University Barber Shop in Norman, Oklahoma. He has written or been featured in a couple of recent magazine articles. Click on the following links to read!
Tobin has two businesses in Norman, Oklahoma — Buchanan Bikes and Gray Owl Coffee. Check out Buchanan Bikes here: Buchanan Bikes
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.
