    If,Honda came out with a 500cc direct injection dual sport bike (or Yamaha, or Suzuki, Kawi, or...even KTM) you couldn't get me to the dealer fast enough. I love smokers. The simplicity of the motor is so beautiful.

    I used to ride with a guy who had one a looooong time ago. It was a lot of fun to ride (of course I was a wee bit younger also). I remember it would do wheelies for miles. You didn't have to worry about balance or any of that crap. Just throttle and rear brake:eek1. Being behind it on a ride was no fun though:deal. Handguards, chest protector, googles and a visor were a MUST. :lol3.

    There are few things on this planet that sound more sinister than an air-cooled two cycle. The Yamaha 750s sound absolutely evil.

    Back, way, way back, in the day I went to the Indianapolis Mile. The one where Kenny Roberts won on a TZ750 flat tracker. The two factory Harley guys were approaching the finish line doing the you go first bit (team mates) and Kenny nipped them at the line.

    At the San Jose Mile I was standing at the exit of turn two and the Harleys were tossing dirt clods at out feet if that. Scott Brelsford riding a Erv Kanaemoto Kawasaki 750 triple was lofting the dirt clods twenty feet behind us and he would wheelie all the way down the back straight at well over 100 MPH!!!

    The AMA quickly put an end to all of this foolishness and banned the two stroke multi cylinder bikes. Ya think Harley had anything to do with this? I do... But it sure made for a good show.

    The two stroke twin flat trackers would have left a stack of bodies if the AMA hadn't banned them. I wouldnt be surprised if the TZ750 flat tracker was built on a dare.... hey watch this shit!:lol3

    What two stroke twins? They were three (Kawasaki) and four (Yamaha) cylinders.

    I went in like 2008 I guess (along with the MotoGP) and Kenny revived the 750 and went for a few laps. OMG, I honestly feared he was going to lose it. I saw him at dinner the next night (he came and sat at our table). I was literally star struck . He, Wayne, Kevin and others were having dinner at the same place. I should've took pics.


    Here's some from the event.

    You are correct... too many conversations going on at once.:lol3 On-line, in person and when you factor in the voices in my head, it gets really crazy!
