That's the problem with the big girl, it makes it easy until it comes to a stop. Then you realize what you are riding.

I wouldn't want to be picking it up 20 times a day, but without panniers and crap it's not as hard as I thought.

On the other hand if you weigh 50Kg it's probably too much bike for you.

The S10 is a giant dirt bike in it's weight distribution, balance, geometry. It's just the GIANT bit that seems to put people off.

It does take time to get over the intimidation factor. Not everyone can.

On the other hand you can do graded dirt roads on nearly anything.
