4 Strokes Started Off as a Joke And Will Finish The Same Way

Yes overall 4 strokes are easier to ride with their more controlled and smoother power delivery which is very forgiving around the track except at high speed. And that is their big downfall, they just don't have that same aggression as a 2 Stoke which at high speed allows you to point the bike were you want.
On a fast muddy rutted out track (with easy jumps, I'm not a good jumper) I'll still destroy any new 4 stroke 450 rider with my old KX250, 2000 Model. I've gotten myself out of so much trouble on my 40 acre farm track that would definitely not have been possible on a 4 stroke. 2 strokes will make a comeback as soon as the 4 strokes hit their peak and then can go no faster. The 2 Stroke will come back and stamp it's authority on what is its home ground - VERY FAST MOTORCROSS! All you 4 stroke guys who can't handle real speed, your time is limited.
P.S OK 4 Strokes are still pretty mad!
