    I don't ride anymore last bike was a 2006 YZ250
    Never liked the 4chokes. I liked 2 strokes because you have to know how to ride and they need more input clutching shifting. Not just put it in 2nd 3rd gear and twist the throttle... Also back in the day 2strokes were the bike of choice and 4chokes were slow and heavy.

    My 1998 CR250 trail slayer. She's in the process of getting rebuilt right now. Just had new piston and rings done, getting it reassembled with a bunch of new goodies. Will post more pics after rebuild. This is my first 2 stroke and i won't ever go back to a 4 stroke, for trails especially. I dont care what anyone says, yeah 4 strokes are cool and all but IMO they take some of the fun out of riding. The snappiness of the 2 stroke and hearing it roll into the powerband just adds to the whole experience.

    If we are going purely by smell then it's all about that MAXIMA pre mix. Oooooo does that smell so good.
