I've never managed to break my Wife's Vaganza, but I keep an extra around "just in case".

Prior to even reading this I declared today 2 stroke only day. I went out for a nice ride on the RD400 and upon returning home, hopped on the Cuddy-mobile and went to the store to fetch a bottle of wine.

Heck I even whipped up a batch of pre-mix today!

I remember my Suzuki 350 twin. It was hard to kick start, noisey and vibrated like crazy. I don't miss it.

Smile It's Scott!

The English guy you mean is Alfred SCOTT! Scot made many quirky and wonderful 2- stroke bikes, most which fetch very large prices at auction. I can only wish someone would develop a environmentayy friendly 2- stroke engine. The make great motorcycle engines.

Yes, well too bad you're not man enough for the "ported cylinder of death".

Makes dat rear brake (the only one) more useless than it already is.
