One would think... but it really is quite a PussyCat, especially with all the various electronic "Nannies" up and running. Other than lofting the front wheel in every gear (I went -1T on the C/S Sprocket as well) it is absolutely up to the rider as to how it reacts. Somewhat like owning a Gun. It's not the bike that pulls the trigger. But, by 'Beastly' and making it more Supermoto Oriented, I was thinking of something like the one set up for Ice Racing pictured below. OK, maybe just with some 'Racing Rain' GP tires on it rather than full block knobbies with studs, but by adding some Acerbis Handguards, seeing if the belly skid plate from the 1290 Super Adventure could be fabbed to fit, and gritting my teeth enough to let it get dirty and hit some smooth packed dirt sections with it. And maybe some nice rolling Table Tops like at Adams Kart Track in SoCal where I used to frequent before moving. But, out here, there are so many miles and miles of nice 'State Routes' and such that would be fun to ride on with it. As most really (in the right times of the year) could be ridden without a "Real" Dirt, Dual Sport or ADV bike. Most are run up and down by little rental cars - until it rains.
