Assuming we are still talking about an overall riding n00b. You are dead on sir. Riding dirt at any age teaches you more about throttle/brake control, and how YOUR inputs affect how your bike will handle than any number of miles on the street. Not to say you should take your Ultra Classic for a cruise over Ophir Pass.
