DONNIE EMLER ON TWO STROKES
From MXA comes a quote from Donnie Emler from the Secret of their Success series.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT IN THE FUTURE?
“I expect a two-stroke comeback at some level because of cost, sound, and maintenance.“
JAMES STEWART ON TWO STROKES
This one is James Stewart from his Myspace JS7 Ride Day Video
“Yeah umm I mean… once the fans see this video and seeing the two stroke… I think the two-strokes the thing that’s coming with me across the country.”
SERVICE HONDA ON TWO STROKES
Terror, the reaction is unmistakable. Service Honda 250AF, say the name and watch the reaction of factory supported 250cc motocross race teams. When the AMA was considering making the 250AF legal for Pro Racing these race teams told the AMA ‘ if a Privateer team shows up on the 250AF we will not race’. No surprise that the factory supported race teams reacted this way, the 250AF is lighter, more nimble and more powerful than the competition.

HUSQVARNA RELEASES 2010 CR125
The folks over at Evinrude have a great sense of humor, here is a commercial about the difference between the four-stroke and the two-stroke.
Anyone think that it might cost a few bucks to fix this four-stroke?
Formerrider from KTM Talk came up with these witty little tid-bits…
“The neutered, artificially constricted, intentionally undersized 2 strokes the politically correct AMA presently allows to be entered in AMA sanctioned races can’t compete in SX and MX.”
