Nice to see it in action. Seems to go well in the sand.
It's been my experience that the top tier riders will routinely perform in a manner not always consistent with us mere mortals. (Witness Jimmy Lewis, Ned Suesse, et al.)

Obviously, few manufacturers will not simply "donate" a first-release model to the aforementioned "mere mortals". Nonetheless, Yes, it is nice to see the bike used in a real-world environment.

The LAST thing this mere mortal needs is a bigger, heavier and more expensive machine to ride offroad.
