Growing up with a family of ol' school speedway/flat track racers, Tara fell in love with riding and racing early on. Her first bike was a 1981 Yamaha Exciter that her parents gave her for her 16th birthday. A few years later, she made her first solo Sturgis trip on a Buell Blast from NY. She enjoys doing track days and mini moto racing. As an instructor for Lee Parks Total Control Advanced Rider Training, she loves inspiring new and experienced riders to improve their riding skills.
