Not sure about that. This contradicts one of the reviews I read which said just the opposite and that many of the reviewers grew up riding motorcross.

Edit:

Here is the quote from Bart Madson of Motorcycle USA: http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/857/15...irst-Ride.aspx

A disclaimer for the hardcore GS-ites here: I am a relative novice off-road, as compared to most of my editorial kin, who learned to ride in the dirt and at a young age (it would seem some may have exited the womb crossed up and roosting the doctors). My skill set found the Enduro mode’s gentle throttle encouraging on the loose stuff. I was able to initiate easy, controllable slides. Even more impressive is the ABS setting.
