I got to spend several hours in the saddle yesterday and tried the bikes off road abilities on a 4x4 track here in Queensland. We had severe storms the night before so it was a bit wet and slippery, but considering the stock tyres and me not having ridden much off road in years I must say I am VERY impressed with this bike. ABS is great on descents, and I found setting 1 of 3 on the traction control helped me keep it from sliding off the side of the mountain.
That engine is just awesome. I love the torque which can be found anywhere. And the noise it makes! Yes im very impressed :)

Yes thats the road the tyres are predictable over wet rock, just not outstanding. Wet clay i think they would struggle. The traction control on setting#1 worked well for me, allowing some slip before retardation. I will upgrade tyres once these are worn out. Ive paid for these, may aswell use them.
