If I were on a bike like that (nice,large and expensive looking) in mud like that I'd hate it too! But on a light enduro bike with the right tyres it's huge fun :) Getting it right is hugely rewarding and fun, while the consequences of getting it wrong usually less severe on you're body and pocket t...
