I've had three bikes in the past - 2 dual purpose and one street - and now I've been out of it for a number of years, but want to get back into it. I've been looking etc. like most of the rest here and one of the questions I have is that with Adventure bikes and some dual-sport bikes, the front fender is right above the tire like a street bike would be. Why?

What if you actually take them off-road and go through mud/clay?

Why don't they just pack up and clog? And if they don't clog why do dirt bikes still have front fenders way above the tire? Is there some technology that has cropped up in the last decade that I'm unaware of? I just can't imagine going off-road without a fender that won't clog up.
