These bikes are not dirt bikes. Sure, a semi-professional rider can make it look easy with suitable tyres and the confidence to keep his speed up.
In such conditions tyres and momentum are paramount. "light offroad use". Yeah, right.
No adventure tourer is really intended for mud or deep sand despite what some Youtube videos might show. Stick to the dry and firm tracks. A patch of mud is fine, or a patch of sand - but not the bottom of a gully that turns into a creek when it rains.
