Who started on dirt before street, and still rides dirt?
I grew up riding anything I could get my hands on, but was never allowed to have a bike. So, I'd let friends ride my quads and I'd ride their bikes whenever possible. that's been 15 or 16 years ago at least, but I'm itching to get a bike now. CRF250 maybe, that seems about right. I was a huge Ricky Johnson and Johnny O'Meara fan, SuperX kicked ass back then.
My g/f is wanting to learn how to ride, so I'll probably send her to the Basic MSF just to learn a bit there. Then before getting her on the street, let her screw around on an XR80 or something along those lines. Dirt and street are entirely different, but the confidence translates.
Who grew up riding dirt and do you still ride?
