Engineer is majorly rugged & rocky. Good thing I was going down. I was worried I may not make it if I hit any bad sections I couldn't get thru because I would not have been able to get back up. The 6" of suspension on the Strom was way inadequate & my bash plate took a severe beating. It also put a crack in the welds at the top of the crash bars. Brutal!!! Would have been a blast to go up on my Husaberg!
