What a silly fu*king question.

My answers? Weight, simplicity, powerband manipulation through the tuner's art. Learn HOW it works, and go to work. It responds to what you do immediately...... turd, rocket or grenade.

Like 2-strokes?

It was fun to smog tailgaters on my Suzuki GT750, especially if I had been just cruising for awhile. they would back off right quick. One moron in a 455 Buick Riv had his wipers on trying to see where he was going. I'm sure that was helpful. Safety First!!!!

Powerband hit, aroma, light weight, simplicity, lack of oil changes and valve adjustments…………and the fun of stunning guys trying to wrestle a litre bike on a tight track when you duck under them on the inside on a 250 weed whacker !

I am 31. Been riding riding since I was about 18. First bike was a two stroker. Loved it till I got a 4 stroker. Broke my leg on it and got rid of it. Decided I wanted to ride again two years later. Got a 4 stroker and though, why not try a two as well.

Now I have two 2T and my 4T which hardly gets ridden. Although I love the raw power and torque of my 4, I can throw around my 2t's like they were nothing and they have a lot of umph to them... Just fun to ride. Cheap parts and cheap fun. Sucks mixing fuel though.

I'd much rather mix fuel than change oil and adjust valves

I like the lack of engine braking too - they don't load up the front end in a corner, they don't step the rear out with engine braking. You just get to the apex, look at the next corner, nail the throttle and go there.

I had a ktm525 and loved the bike. What set me over was i had a cooling fan malfunction so it was on a tad more than normal. Well it totally drained the battery. This was after a particularly hard gnarley ride. I couldnt for the life of me kick thing over and was out in the middle of nowhere.
Plus got sick of constantly worrying about adjusting valves. Two strokes are so simple, cheap, easy to repair. The new four strokes are cool but you pay the price for all that technology(aka more things to break down).

The same jug of mix gas goes in 2 dirtbikes, 2 snowmobiles and a chainsaw. The adrenaline per dollar cannot be beat. The REAL magic is not in the moving parts but in the behavior of gasses through ports and pipes. Manifested in slapping down muscle cars with an RD400, or floating over waist-deep powder. Rock-solid reliability in a 225lb package, an E-ticket ride to backcountry Shagri-La. This, my friends, Fuels my daydreams.

For me it's the sound and the power in such a small package. I get so sick of hearing Harleys all over it's nice to hear a motorcycle that doesn't sound like a high revving rocket or a noisy V-Twin Harley.

I started on an R5 Yamaha two stroke, predecessor to the RD350. Drum brakes instead of discs. Bought it had ape hangers and a sissy bar for $325US. Pulled those off apes and sissy bar and put on "superbike" bars and a Toomy pipe.

Gawd I loved the ring ding ding of that two stroke. Rode it to college at Appalachian State, and back and forth 3 summers to Sliding Rock where I worked summers. Twisty mountain roads. What a great way to learn how to use a throttle. Brakes? Not so much.

Today? A two stroke Aprilia Scarbeo graces my garage. 50cc of raging weasel fun. Sounds like a weed eater on steroids. Twist and go, but when the pipe comes in, you better be hanging on!
