+1 on this.

Having a plated two stroke in San Francisco was simply priceless. But she's back in the mountains now!

The feeling of urgency as it hits the power band.

Nothing like pulling up to a Harley at a light, smoking and ring dinging! If they have to ask…..

On some of my rides, the people who thought my RZ350 was very cool were the Harley guys. Go figure. I was surprised, to say the least.

First bike as a kid was A 125cc D3 BSA Bantam it was simple and reliable i learned to spanner on it, had many more over the years Highlights i guess were a suzuki T500 and a mach 3 500 Kawasaki, had a DT250 as a work bike 10 years replaced it with a planeta 350 sport i have had that 15 years.
Two strokes are simple light weight for capacity and reliable not at all complicated to maintain, and if they do give issues generaly its cheap to fix.
And sound its not just the 2 stroke scream its all the other fantastic sounds they make on overun and idling etc nothing like them.

rode a supermoto'd kx500 in downtown Birmingham, men that was a HOOT.

the guys that ride two smokes around here have more knowledge of the landscape, history, and culture than the other folks. they share knowledge, ride destinations, and memories. they know how to tune their bikes, and aren't easily ruffled.

the bikes are just more fun. Even when I'm the slowest dude there.

Because 100cc still feels like plenty during my commute to work.

The sound, the smell, and the powerband

My g/f and I took our RD125 out to mid-ohio, we ran it around for the weekend. Going up the hill towards the entry gates the powerband hit and up we went into a nice power wheelie, weeeee! She was more like though.
