I'm sure he could be trained to use the litter box.

You have high hopes Dr Logan. If you can achieve that I will recommend you for this years medical Nobel Prize.

I can't believe how much fun it is to post links. Dog was a great teacher. Hit about the head only 4-5 times.

Any way for both of you 2-stroke wanna bees here is real men on real 2-strokes riding on real courses.

Oh, I have been through the "rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy" phase of life.

Wow HAP.

Is it HAP? The impostor who is posting worthy material: what have you done with HAP?

That vid even has a scooty chic in it. I love scooty chics.

Well

Back when I was a lad two strokes were cheap, simple, very economical, and slow.

Then they got fast, (and very complicated, but the complication is in the shape of the bits rather than the number of bits) and the faster they got the thirstier they got.

And they sound like a tom cat being neutered without anaesthetic, which is the best of all reasons for keeping then in museums where we can stand and stare in amazement that such a fuel inefficient cycle could ever have been considered sensible, and never feel the need to fire them up and release that hideous noise.

Luckily, here in little old England, the mighty 2 stroke hasn't yet been banished to history. This means that I can terrorise other road users, alongside fellow true believers, on my wonderful Hustler. My H2 and H1 buddies get me on the straights, but I get them in the twisties, all to a screaming sound track, and a blue, hazy backdrop. Heaven! Of course we should have a choice. Most of today's riders who are under 45, have never experienced the joy of hitting the power band and having the front come up! They don't deserve to never have that thrill!

Here in little old Australia you can still register and ride a Toohey.

But try buying one.
