Nice video and that is exactly right. I have seen some video of a guy on a Harley on a trail that BMW GS's were having to "work" to get through... He was really abusing that bike BAD. Just like following several blogs with people riding around the world on a 250 street bike and they were in some really bad stuff.
My favorite was following Doug Wothke (rdwdoug) thread on ADV when he put a side car on a Harley bagster and rode the TAT.It is pretty nuts what you can do with just about any bike really. It is nice the NC can be setup to do some rougher riding, but if I were serious about off road riding the NC wouldn't be my first choice for serious off road work. The NC really is a nice all around bike. I will caveat I am not an off road kind of guy so that really isn't my focus with the NC, but I see some guys here have worked hard to setup their bikes for that dual role very nicely. It does look like a lot of fun.
Big oops !
