That's the thing.
2 strokes are great for the track where you're running balls-out all the time, but on the trails, you're going to want to idle around a tight corner between a couple of trees or rocks, and then when you get around and notice the trail is getting a bit soft, you need to pin it to keep the front tire from digging in or washing out.
4 stroke will do that without a problem, just like driving the Taco.
