Honda Rebel vs Chinese Scooter OFF ROAD

So I took both of my machines for some comparison test on a remote 'power line maintenance road', and had a blast. It was after heavy rain, so road was just perfect. The verdict: Chinese scooter is very under powered for serious hill climbs, but took me quite far and got me there with dry feet. Honda Rebel was more fun, more power, could probably go further but I didn't want to push it to the breaking point (I was just practicing to improve my skill level). So in the end I ended up at the same point, but with wet feet and fogged up windshield from the water boiling off my motor

I found that I was dragging the exhaust pipes on baby heads and changed to a CRF230L.
