I run a WR 426f and love it... Stump pulling power, but it'll rev to the moon...

The only 2 stroke i've had is a moped, but I like my 4-stroke for the practical reasons. If I want to dual sport, I don't have to worry about bringing oil with me, as well as the reliability factor. I also like that they are more environmentally friendly. (I know that doesn't mean anything in this crowd, but please don't flame)

i had a 93 xr600 that was all orignal and didnt use a drop of oil and ran like new....i only got rid of it cause i wanted a little smaller bike...still bought a 4 stroke......
cant beat them for dependability and being able to ride almost anywhere without having to worry about mixing the gas and oil

They old ones are heavy and turn like dump truck. I wouldn't mind a new one in my garage though.

the 2 strokes are no comparison to the new 4 strokes. power is like a pumped up diesel, but yet more controlable than the pep of a 2 stroke. i have had a 02 yzf 426, and currently have a yzf 450, and i loved them both.
