Afterall that is 100 miles... nice to stretch the legs,grab a drink or take a whiz.
If its a vibrator, maybe. My Guzzi was fairly smooth and I once rode for 5 hours straight - - - no stopping, except for two red lights until I had to re-fuel. Sometimes one just wants to get to the destination, while sometimes one can want to wander around. BTW, I was fairly
busting for a leak at that fueling station!

In fact, sadly, I'm willing to bet 90% of the posters on this site have never twisted the throttle on a two-stroker, and quite frankly have no clue what they're talking about. It's a completely different experience coming onto the powerband than any 4 stroke.
NOT every Two-Stroke! My second and third motorcycles were European-built Two-Stroke singles (CZ125
& H-D Aeromachi M65
) and my first FOUR-Speed Gearboxes if I remember correctly. Pet-Oil mix at 10%!
What I do recall, upon returning to Four-Strokes, was that I could once again ride from A to B without stopping midway to swap (out) a fouled plug with a clean one.
I think that I'm completely past Two-Strokes --- even my Brush Cutter hasn't had much use for a long time. Hate that sound - motors should exhaust through mufflers. Otherwise, I may as well have a H-D.
I think my next (walk-behind) powermower will be electric.
