Default 2 stroke fanatic

Does any manufacturer exist that produces a 2 stroke On-Off Road Bike?...

Nope, you can get a new Yamaha WR or KTM and get a Baja lighting kit, get it registered in Arizona. Europe has the last of the 2 stroke dual sports, but with Euro-2 regs those will be gone soon enough. You'll just have to find an old pre 1976 Yamaha enduro and restore it. Ride it on the street and piss off all the enviro-nazis. Look at my signature pic, that old DT2 use to beat Maicos & Huskys in grand prix vintage stuff. Use to beep my horn when I'd pass 'em.

Are you really located in Russia? I imagine you can register just about ANYTHING there!

Go get a KTM300EXC. It should be available in "street legal" trim in Europe. It's good enough to win the ISDE. Have fun!

Other makes are the new Husqvarna 300, TM 300, and GasGas 250/300.

It's a sad commentary on our society when a guy living in Russia loves his freedom!

We're becoming as boring as Europe and they're having fun in Russia!

Well, in another 60-70 years, the USASSR will collapse, the Wall will come down here, and then WE can start all over again.................
