My 300 is plated. I have taken it on some 100 mile D/S rides that were about 90% dirt. It will cruz along comfortably at 45 mph. 13/50 gearing. I just hate burning up tires on the road. I can ride for literally hundreds
of miles of dirt roads, just about a mile from my house.
Riding my 530, on the same desert single track, and mountain single track, I was alot less fatigued on the 300.
Was I faster? Hard to tell. The four stroke does make you lazy, seems like you our going slower. Need to be
a little more on your game with the two stroke. I do miss my 530 for longer more slab oriented D/S rides.
You really need to have about 15 bikes to cover all aspects of riding.
