Curious what it can handle. I'm not a dirt rider, but I would love to explore some of the less gnarly roads and trails I see when I'm riding in the Asheville area... am I bound to get stuck?

I used to drive my 1977 KZ 750 off road. Its 3 lbs lighter than the scr. My guess is on hard packed surfaces like dirt or hard packed gravel.. Prob good to go. But stay away from mushy gravel mushy anything as the SCR is so heavy. And being belt driven... look out for rocks. I almost wiped several times on the KZ in loose gravel. Too heavy.
To beat a dead horse... Look at the bottom of the middle column on page 2-2 of the owners manual. See it says right there that it was not designed for off road use and should not be driven off road. Im over 50 so I wont be trying anything like that. lol
