Deanna "Moto" DeBrosse
Since I was a young girl I’ve wanted to own and ride motorcycles. Things just never quite lined up for it to happen until after I passed the 40yr mile marker and now that I’ve tasted twisting the throttle I’m NOT going back. Over the last year and half, I've quickly progressed from the safety of a 100cc dirt bike to adventure riding on my BMW F650GS. My husband and I have dreams of enjoying this hobby for many years to come and can't wait to integrate our love of backpacking and camping with our new love of motorcycling!
I had a feeling I would love the riding, but I never knew how much I would love the riding community! As I attend various group rides in my area, I continue to meet people with significantly different backgrounds and stories than my own, yet we all have the same spirit of gratitude, passion for freedom, and love of adventure. This hobby creates countless opportunities to meet inspiring people I most likely would have never had the chance to meet outside of riding. There are so many amazing people in the biking community!
The riding at the STRSS Rally in Tellico Plains, TN is some of my all-time favorite! There is something for everyone! This picture was taken not far from the Cherohala Skyway, in front of Bald River Falls. A beautiful national scenic byway! I also love the challenging adventure rides in the area and a chance to navigate dirt roads up to beautiful balds or down into the valleys to be challenged by some creek crossings! I hope to see many familiar and new faces this September!
