fire roads , high speed gravel , stuff like that they shine on , single track not so much .
Get in loose sand or mud you WILL wash out the front wheel 90% of the time .
They are over 500 lbs ready to ride and "top heavy" would be the understatement of the year .

The good is they have a nice flat torque curve .............
the bad they are a 100 HP motorcycle and WILL spin up the back wheel pretty good off road .

on an Off camber trail and the big beast will fall down cuz your tootsies wont touch terra firma . They are tall and worse with a Corbin seat.
