    I did the pram track last week on a ktm 690 enduro. It is a challenge for a beginner, I would not want do it without knobbies. Got stuck twice while crossing streams with slippery boulders. Ride it during a week day and you can take it slow without worrying about other riders.

I had huge challenges but at the end of the day I did have fun!
