Sometimes I wonder if he just has a lot of confidence in me or is he really trying to kill me?

One thing is for sure, the little red piggy is so much easier than my 650 GS.... So I will continue to to enjoy every minute of it ... hopefully soon you won't see me on my ass so much

Dirt riding has a bit of a learning curve. I've gone through it myself over the last two years. I started out with a bigger bike (about the size of your GS) and decided it was too big for me. Then got a smaller bike and started really learning how to ride. Now, a couple of trips to Death Valley later, I've gotten a lot better, and I feel like I can better control the bigger bike now.
