Easier? Quicker? - Sounds boring. And maybe a little :ymca.

Hard on equipment? - Only if you flub it.

Some events are starting to have relatively mild "Enduro Cross" sections with logs and tires. I think at one they were even going to have a Volkswagon to go over, but I think that fell through. Most of these are preceded by a split in the trail and you can bypass the action but have to go a longer distance and incur a time penalty if you bypass.

Never heard of frames being damaged from logs. All you need is a light skid plate for rocks and such to keep from puncturing the soft aluminum engine case from a rock being kicked up or something. I went to a light plastic quick release skid plate on my old KTM and it was plenty of protection. Plastic on the Husaberg, too.

Don't worry, your bike will survive whatever you can throw at it just fine, and then some, it's our old bones that need the protective plating.
