Four Strokes Are More Forgiving

Four strokes are just more rider-friendly with the smooth power delivery and low end grunt. And that's what makes 4 strokes so easy to ride. But who cares about power if you can't transfer it to the dirt?

I have owned several 2 strokes in my day and will continue to ride 2 smokers. Love my yz250, it's a crazy b**ch but I love her. 2 strokes are just fun. I have ridden a few newer 4 strokes and they are great machines and again easy to ride. Maybe I'll get one when I'm old.

On a side note, I have bought all my 2 strokes used, simple tear down, simple rebuild. You know what you are getting into when you buy used. I would be hesitant to buy any used 4 stroke. You might buy a perfectly good looking/running bike but a week later you now have a complete rebuild on your hands.
