My bro used to own a 83 XR200 (non R dual shocker if you can believe it) and I could wheelie that for a long ways. Had a great balance point, and just enough power to make it fun. This weekend I was pulling wheelies with the new WR... talk about effortless. Made me look like a wheelie rockstar. On one I went about half a miles and no clutched from 3rd to 5th... finally got bored and sat it down and the speedo immediatly flipped to 74 mph... and it was just effortless. I love this bike.
