DIRTY for GOOD – July 20-Aug. 2, 2020
Shal is a certified motorcycle instructor for both on and off road riding. In 2014-15, she rode over 31,000 miles covering much of North America. In that time, she set the original known record for the most Backcountry Discovery Routes (BDR) traveled back-to-back with five (5) total including the AZ, CO, WA, ID, and the NM. Shal was part of the New Mexico Expedition Team for the filming of the NMBDR. Shal also manages SheADV where the focus is on supporting, promoting and encouraging women to ride, especially in the backcountry. In addition, Shal travels and trains around the country at events like Overland Expo and Dirty for Good. She has co-led 4 SheADV Backcountry Tours in the state of WA, with the primary focus on supporting women to adventure out, push the limits and experience life in the backcountry. As a BDR Ambassador, she is always educating riders on the mission of the BDR organization and encouraging them to get out and RIDE! She believes everyone should, “Redline their lives, by living it to the fullest,” for her, riding her GS in the backcountry is doing just that.
WMF leadership, having trained with Bill Dragoo, of Dragoo Adventure Rider Training, in Oklahoma, knows DART curriculum is ROCK SOLID and TRAIL WORTHY!
