Sometimes it rains here for weeks and the wide tires on the BW200 give it a real advantage on the trails. I've had it up in the woods when it's been raining with water on top of soup mud, on top of loose mud, that's on top of real mud. It floats over that stuff much better than the standard dirt bike. Around here I've seen 4 other BW200's and 1 BW350. One BW200 was in perfect shape, but all the others were like mine, almost completely worn out, with tons of ride time on them.
