That was a great vid, but that course was very easy. Do a youtube search for michalec's or Martins mayhem. That bike would be a liability.

skip ahead to 5:30 and see what I mean

Seriously, Whats the worse that can happen
You can do some very expensive damage to your bike by bringing the wrong tool for the job.

I'm not very fast on the trails, but I don't drop my bike very often. I took the 690 to the Kugamuga. I did the intermediate loop once. I didn't have any real difficulty, but puttering around in first gear most the time, listening to the fan run constantly on a $10k bike is not as good of a time as I initially thought I would have. Not knocking the Kugamuga at all, the trails I rode were awesome, I just had the wrong tool for the job... At least with my skill set. Now, give me some clear skidder/ logging trails to ride it on, and I'd be a kid in a candy store.
