Ah so.

I just sold a DRZ-E. It was great, loads of power, lots of aftermarket and light weight. But its 5 speed gearbow is so closely spaced that you couldn't have it both ways, trail and highway. With a 6 speed it would be just about perfect.

My WRR has perfect gearing for my purposes, which don't include 3rd gear wheelies on singletrack. Or so it seems so far.
I don't believe in clever tag lines.
