I enjoy the hell out of riding my VStrom off road on crap most others think I 'm whacked for bringing a bike like that out "wherever" some people don't feel appropriate. Sure it's a handful and in no way could I ever think of riding it as fast or on as technical of terrain as my EXC.
Here in the NJ Pine Barren it's nice to be able to run a 1000cc bike on dirt roads, jeep trails and yes whooped out singletrack. Never would I try and hang with the small bikes but you put a GSA out in those woods and I'll take my VStrom right in with them.
You would never enter the C Class in an Enduro with that bike an HP or even a 950Super Enduro. That doesn't take away from the fact that it might be a blast to try and make a cool loop on the Enduro course just to see how far you can push man and machine.
