Or,...I just go a little faster. The suspension of this bike makes it easy. You can always re-gear if it is still not low enough. The thing just rocks. I have to admit though, I still sneak out on the wifes 230 every now and then when she ain't lookin....
I currently own both bikes. I have 10+ years of on road riding, and have been doing more offroad in the last year... i'm selling the WRR (blasphemy, i know) for the CRF. Two totally different bikes, but I was never able to have enough control over the throttle at low speeds on the WRR and feel like it's just a matter of time before I wreck because of that. Much more control of the CRF in tight trails. Mind you - my love for the WRR is greater, but don't tell the CRF. I'm sure when we spend more time together we'll bond some more.
