One time when I was at Grattan Raceway, the paved track and not their dirt track, I went off the track into the grass. Does that count as riding dirt?

I've only ridden the dirt track there, never the road course. I had a bad crash there a few years ago, I broke a couple ribs. Still it's a fun place to ride for both beginners and experts.

I took the R6 into the median of the on ramp getting onto I94 - does that count?

But I rode dirt many many years before I even touched a street bike. When I bought a dual sport - Yamaha XT600 - it was almost like a crossover and I rode street more than dirt then I transitioned away from dirt.. I broke too many bikes and bones riding dirt..
