It's worse than that, they'll bitch about whatever it is. If it is good on the slab it isn't light enough or have the suspension or clearance for the dirt. If it is good in the dirt it is too light and gets blown around on the slab, and is too tall, and can't carry enough luggage for two-week trips camping on the road because the rear sub-frame isn't heavy enough. Blah bla blah it isn't perfect so why don't they make.....
