Got my BRP about 2 weeks ago (2000). It is plated and fully uncorked, so I did take it down the road a ways when I first got it. Took it to a big sand pit the other day. WOW!! There isn't a hill this thing won't climb. Definately better at 20 mph + than creeping along. You say when pigs fly? Well, I had this pig flyin'. Nothing crazy, about 6 ft. up. Heavy, heavy, heavy. Clearly this bike was not made for jumping. Fast sweepers are a blast though and yes, I am pleased with the wheelieing capabilities. I can see why a lot of people have a second bike for tight woods stuff. I don't know about pig, wild boar maybe! Overall I'm happy with it.
