Easily handles gravel when your whole hog n' me weight 1100+ pounds, but dunno the sandy and too soft areas haven't encountered these yet.

Easily ride at 45+ mph on straight gravely roads. Most challenges have been the ascends which take a bit of body English in order for the one wheel drive to "bite". Shiftings are usually in the 2-3 gear and often times in 4th gear on straightways. I reduced my FD to 3.0-1 which makes a helluva difference. The bike chuggs like a tractor in either 1 or 2nd gear.
