If your idea of riding is cruising along the fire roads enjoying the outdoors, the WR might not be the best choice.
The WR is a race-capable bike, and demands to be ridden that way. It is almost more work to sit on the bike and ride as it is to stand up and ride aggressivly.
Being a large fellow, I am sure that the WR will provide all power, speed and accelleration that your heart could desire, but if you are not intending the ride the bike as aggressively as it was designed for, I think it could be a mistake.
If you want a powerful race bike that makes demands of the rider, the WR is the one for you.
If you want something that is more comfortable than fast, then the WR would not be at the top of the list.

This way you will be ready well ahead of time. More than likely your going to need about a 5.8 rear spring for sure...the stock is going to be something like a 5.0 to a 5.2 out of the crate.

I ride mostly tight single track and fire trails running stock springs at the moment at max preload on the rear. It bottoms out on the rear occasionally, but I plan to upgrade the springs soon.
