Notice that they don't show it riding up or down narrow trails with tight switchbacks. All of the photos are of places that I wouldn't hesitate to ride my KTM 990 Adventure. However, I don't consider it to be fun to land a 500 pound bike from a jump. I avoid catching air on mine.

Both rider and bike are beasts. I'm not and neither in my WeeStrom but we didn't have a trouble doing the TransAmerican Trail in 2008 from start to finish. I've also taken in on quite a few singletrack trails through the Hatfield McCoy system.

That said my dirt bike was better and my GasGas still reigned supreme in the hard areas.
