I'm simply pointing out that it is easy and cheap enough to learn those skills on the bike you have if you wish to.

Having said that, the only wheelies I did on my DR were accidental and I didn't semi-master the skill until I was on a 200cc 2 stroke dirt bike.
Thank you for making me feel better about it, lol
