It takes away from the fun and it becomes work all the way and every mistake means you will have a chance of 640 pounds landing on top of you. Having said that the right tires and a steering damper make a huge difference in the sand especially with the big bikes.
Ií still having the DRZ and I just went to Morocco with a Super Tenere 1200. I enjoyed both trips a lot.
With the DRZ had fun in the sand and the dunes but is uncomfortable and boring in the long and flat tracks and specially in the roads.
The Super T allows me to do a longer trip, is really comfortable where the DRZ is not but horrible in sand.
Next year I want to go for myself, so I'm thinking in the Tenere 660 as an intermediate in both but I donít know how it works in sand, thatís why I asked.
