Why do you love two-strokes?

A two stroke stirs something deep in my soul that can be replaced with nothing else.

I know that two-stroke smell. Always brings back childhood memories.

Brought up on two strokes. First bike was a 50cc Itom in South Africa. Hooned around on that for a year, raced it with 60 other teen hooligans at Kyalami. Then found 100cc karts, Tecno Parilla was the kart to have. Later on, in Toronto, MX'd a 125/175 Yam DT, then ex-works Can-Am 125/175. RZ350 in Florida after (2nd!) divorce. Selling my 955i Speed Triple right now to buy an Aprilia RS250.
There's something about that powerband and the smoke and the relative simplicity and no excessive weight that never fails to appeal.
Cheers
Barry
