I love going through all 5 gears on a wheelie. When I first got my XX I took it down the back roads for a few top speed runs and some wheelies. I didn't expect a 500+ pound ATV to pull the front end up in 4th gear, and then 5th gear on the crests in the road. Its the biggest and most powerful ATV I've ridden, so I'm impressed. And you can shift weight very easily in the air, even with my super hard RAZR 2's.
