    Mine tends to load-up, and foul plugs if we sit in too much stop and go traffic. But in the smallish town where I live it is seldom an issue.
    Curvy two lane highways are where the bike shines. :evil

    Do they run the risk of blowing up on the highway like I've heard of some people saying?

    I don't spend much time on 4-lane divided interstate, but when I do I vary my speed and throttle position often.
    Mine seems happiest between 50-75 mph, and is more fun than should be legal. :evil

    Jetting does need to be right to prevent a meltdown on any two-stroke, more-so than a 4-stroke.
