As Much As I Love Two Strokes
by Charlie Welsh
Today, everything is changing at one time. It used to be that a two stroke would haul past a four stroke, but with everything changing I don't know where I stand anymore. As much as I love two strokes, four strokes offer a lot more on the track.
Two strokes needing to be in a high rpm range at all times or it bogs where a four can pull through on just about any gear at any time. That is a plus for the fours but what about that powerband? That sudden burst of speed and power it would be no surprise why most free stylists use the two strokes. So that's a bonus for them..
It's a hard choice to make but in the end I would have to go with the two's - there is nothing more exciting then hearing that powerband open and feeling your body getting tugged from the haul.
