It's pretty good, not an MX bike, but handles dirt roads just fine - I'm not as aggressive a rider as you though.
A lot less twitchy and it lacks the 'If you don't pay attention I'm going to fall over NOW' feeling of my old K6.
Power delivery is better as well.
No clunks for me, but I am running slightly heavier fork oil, it's better set up front suspension than the old DL but still not cartridges.
Once the brakes bed in, you will get a 'tick' sound , one of the pads swings back and forwards a little (wind/brake drag moves it forward, gravity swings it back, grabs, swings forward 'tick').
