Yep; nothing wrong with that. I have plenty of friends and have met plenty of good people who fall into that category.
Similarly, the fact that most big GSes get driven that way does not in any way require a retaliatory youtube posting of someone jumping one onto rocks to prove they can. I know they can. Hell, even most of the F800GSes (my own stupidly oversized dirtbike weapon of choice) spend their life being babied on tarmac.
It's interesting to see KTM diverging from their single-minded focus in this way. What next, Husaberg make a Goldwing rival?
