Don't know if this will go over or not... but perhaps there are a few of you with strokers in your mix along with the Gix...

If so, then this thread is for you. Please feel free to post up some TWO-STROKE pictures!

I'm so fond of my Gamma, I want a place to share it, so I'll update with my exploits as they come along as well... please feel free to do the same.

Re: TWO-STROKE HEAVEN - Illustrated...

Lucky fucker

I hear Aprilia is bringing an RS125 back for 09 with some "clean" 2 smoke tech. I guess it's similar to what Evindrude was doing with the outboard motors.

This is the closest I've gotten to 2-stroke action lately.

A guy let me ride his RM65 mini-motard after my 4-stroke chinese bike shit the bed. There were some bad ass 85's out there too. I'm really wanting to replace the chinese junk with a 65 from the big 4.

^^^ I like those little motards!





Here is a Daytona Special that passed through my hands... only to split a beagle open and endo into oblivion... leaving my buddy battered and stunned on the side of the road... as he blindly fumbled to gather the pieces strewn about the roadside...:_confused1:

Yeah the KX500 is in a class of it's own. You need a lot of room to be able to enjoy one of those.

Mine is only 100cc's and although it's considered a minicrosser, it's still a wild ride. The front end doesn't like to stay planted at all. It's like a pit bike on steroids.

Re: TWO-STROKE HEAVEN - Illustrated...

My first two bikes were two-strokes. Both Bridgestones. First was a mountain 90, second was a 200cc scrambler. Neither was very fast, but they were very quick. I wish I still had 'em. Google pics:

Re: TWO-STROKE HEAVEN - Illustrated...

That Gamma is one clean looking ride man

Only two-strokes I've ridden were a few CR's, YZ's, KX's, RM's of various displacements. Badass scooters, hopefully I get a chance to ride a two-smoker street bike some day

If you make your way out to the Buckeye State sometime... give me a holler. EVERYONE should at least EXPERIENCE an RG at some point in their life! (Well... not EVERYone...)

^^^ My FIRST BIKE! A 50cc Honda "RACCOON" (Air cooled two-stroke)

At LEAST it was the right color!

I rode it until it seized! (Cut hole in airbox without fuel compensation... it ran lean and LOCKED UP one day! DOH!)

DEFINITELY will do! I was SO tempted Sunday afternoon when I shot those photos... but it was 37* and dropping fast as the sun set, and I didn't have a little tripod to set up the shot. I haven't posted sound/vid yet... use photobucket for pics. What's my best vid clip post method here?

Man, that CART scares the holy cannoli out of ME! I took a 125 shifter for a whirl, and about soiled my Levi's in the first few rips through the paddle shifters... the contact with the pavement was magnetic, but the handling was so immediate, I couldn't keep it in a controlled straight line!

There was an article about a guy who put a Rick Lance Gamma motor in a quad... I think "Banshee" or something... and it was told to be a beast.


Nice!

That RM is so clean, I'm wondering if you ever get a chance to ride it.
