Light Weight and ON the Pipe!

08' 200 xcw
As far as Enduros and Hare Scambles go, the top guys are winning on 2-strokes. I myself race a 200 xcw and pass a lot of the 450's. I think they get lazy because the bike lets them get lazy.
There's nothing like the adrenaline-pumping sound of a 2t on the pipe for a hour and a half Hare Scamble! I think 4t's are complicated, loud and very boring. Maybe when I'm in my sixties I might go with a 4t but will most likely go with a KTM 300.
Final Note: I like racing against 450's because they are so loud they don't even know I'm there and most of the time it's too late for them to even put up a fight!
