Looks like the place for me

I have been all over this forum, and keep running into "how much better the new technology is" To me it is junk. I own an '83 Goldwing Interstate (converted to regular brakes) a '79 Sportster, An '01/'99/''94 XT225 (built it out of parts from three different bikes, plus lots of aftermarket parts) , and an '09 Genuine Stella (yes I wanted a real vintage Vespa, but was to afraid of winding up with a Vietbodge) I am currently looking for a vintage 2 stroke street bike, probably a Yamaha RD. I would like to have a '79 RD400F "Daytona Special" but that is out of my price range. I want to avoid liquid cooling and any type of emissions or electronics, including FI at all costs. My taste in cars is the same, I own a '64 Fairlane, a '72 Pinto Squire wagon, and a '77 Datsun pickup. The Fairlane burns more oil than a 2 stroke, but it just keeps running and running.....
