I expected to dial in here and read a full page essay on the little thumper. :) I'm putting my XR in the paper today and hope to have a smaller one by the end of the month.

OK Here goes:
Honda XR70

Wheelies - Yes with full throttle, leaning back and major handlebar crank. Now that I think about it, I don't even think you need the throttle for this procedure.
Jumping - Yes, but anything will jump with enough speed. It's the landing that's tough.
Handling - Yes, it turns.
Power - Yes, it goes. Faster than I expected actually.
Attracts chicks - Yes, but they are under 11 years old. I'm not into that.
Comes in Blue - No, but that's it's only downside.
Best feature - Great for riding to the mailbox and confirming to my neighbors that I'm very immature for my age.

Actually I bought it for my boys and they love it. The 9 year old was ripping and catching a little air. The 6 year old grabbed a handful of throttle his first time out and is still intimidated by it.

You don't even want to know how far I used to jump on my SL70... you'd never let your kids near that XR! :)

Hey Monty,
Sorry to confuse things. I'm selling an XR600 and buying another XR70 for my kids.
