Fantastic stuff John, great pics, glad to see you getting it dirty at last, Dave certainly knows how to ride eh ?
Biggest stopper for heavy bikes is wet mud and bogs, one of the advantages is how heavy bikes track nicely and don't get deflected much

"give it the beans" is OK but misinterpreted means you can't continuously accelerate as at some point you have to slow
Rather the better advice is to keep a constant speed by applying continuos throttle, much like you do through a bend on the tarmac, just enough to maintain a slightly light front end but not increasing speed
