I dont know how many people who say you cant take a bike with a 17 front wheel off pavement have actually done it but it is a bunch of hogwash. The only thing I avoid on my supermoto is deep sand. That is more because of the tires themselves rather than the diameter, The tires you generally run on a 17 float badly in sand. I have two bikes with 17's and have seldom given them a second thought when it comes to where I ride. Ground clearance on the other hand can be a problem.
