The bike not set up right, 80/ 20 tires and mud? and the says he is not a good rider and it shows. I have been riding for over 50years started when I was 3yrs old [I had a great dad]ridden over a million miles, 550,000 miles on a 1975 gl1000 alone. Have had over 45 different motorcycles have 25 of them still. Tried the manual and the dct and ended up ith a dct because it gives you the best of both. It took about a 1000 kms to figure it out, the only thing is really tight u turns, but all you have to do is drag the rear brake with your foot or use the left hand brake. I also like the hand brake for slow down hill braking right foot down or standing on the pegs or tight up hill slow trails both feet down.
I have ridden bmw 800gs for two years, and the crf1000 is hands down 10 times nicer bike to ride. The 270 crank gives it realllllyyy nice torque. But beamer guys are beamer guys, a couple of the guys I ride with [beamer guys] will not swap bikes.
I do ride this bike 60-70% off road.
