Do you guys think the course is possible to do on a bike like the S10 or 1200 GSA and still have fun without bending/breaking stuff? I assume with a bunch of money and time both could be made to survive, and it sure would be fun just to go out and finish. Even without engaging "race speed" I bent both rims on my S10 in UT a couple summers ago going over lockhart basin.

I don't think I would, at race pace anyways, unless it was a built up bike. Ride the course and have fun, sure its all what you make of it.
Although they move the course a bit every year, things get beat up more and more, it certainly isn't getting any smoother.
