So this is where I harp on about 2-stokes being as potentially more economical and environmental than 4's IF they continued R&D on them. And then for some political conspiracist theory reason (which could fill a thread on its own) 2-strokes were outlawed and racing suffered as a result, as did 2-stroke technology.

In the GP there was 2-stroke engineering. And the formulas simply consisted of a multiple of 125 cylinders, 1-125, 2-250, 4-500. So neat!

In SBK there was 4-stroke engineering.

Laid out so nicely.


Then Ezzie turned up.

Another Cool Shot, whatever the event, it looks fun.

I got one of those toys. It is beyond repair for street use, it's trackie only, it is in nowhere near as good a nick as yours. It feels super planted on the track. And because we have only parted with $1500 for it, the fear of chucking it is reduced so the track day is enjoyed even more.

Your mate looks like Flacco.

Thats me at the back fool.

My mate is the one with the RGV.


And yes I was in need of a haircut, it only grows fast at the side.


Thats not actually an event, just a weekend at the local biker cafe (loomies).

Bo, I am all in for a 2 stroke thread but believe it has to be some where other than this forum. TRAT is a little intolerant about blood shed, name calling, relying on religion to bolster your cause and political mongering.

In short, 2 strokes died the death they deserved. They belong with steam engines, wind sail vehicles and perpetual motion vehicles. In the museums of back water world countries.

You up for it?

Steam engines?

You mean the things that generate almost all the electricity you use?
