Phil,

Do you like two-smokes? What kind of experience do you have riding them? What’s your favorite bike of all time, not including the one you’re on now. Don’t be biased!

Ricky,

Man, I loved two strokes. When I was in my teens, 2002 to 2005, four strokes were just really coming into play. So that was the new thing. I couldn’t wait to get off my CR125/CR250 and move to a CRF250/CRF450. 

At that time, it wasn’t anything more than wanting to hear a different sound when I was riding. I always heard a two-stroke revving, and I wanted to float some valves instead. But nowadays, people miss the sound of 125’s piercing through the air. 

My personal favorite was in 2005, I had a CR125 built by JMS. She was badddd. I never got to showcase it that year in Schoolboy at Loretta’s due to a broken femur. I regret selling that bike to this day.
