I've never managed to break my Wife's Vaganza, but I keep an extra around "just in case".

Prior to even reading this I declared today 2 stroke only day. I went out for a nice ride on the RD400 and upon returning home, hopped on the Cuddy-mobile and went to the store to fetch a bottle of wine.

Heck I even whipped up a batch of pre-mix today!

It's Scott!

The English guy you mean is Alfred SCOTT! Scot made many quirky and wonderful 2- stroke bikes, most which fetch very large prices at auction. I can only wish someone would develop a environmentayy friendly 2- stroke engine. The make great motorcycle engines.

What about the dang air kleener?

and upon returning home said:
Yes, well too bad you're not man enough for the "ported cylinder of death".

Makes dat rear brake (the only one) more useless than it already is.

I'm a sucker for fighter aircraft paint schemes on motorcycles.

I wish I could have made it but I was out of the area. Next year I'll be there with my 2-stroke saab sport and my aprilia RS250, possibly my 125 GP bike as well but probably not.

Berkely sound pretty horribly under powered. Similar car is the saab sonnett only it makes 60 hpr.

"Am I the only one that gets a huge Woody lookin' at that Berkely? I've never heard of this car before, but I WANT one"

Gee, three Villers Starmaker top ends, one Zenith carb, and sparks by Lucas, what could possibly go wrong?

When I was a kid in Montreal my dad had an air cooled three cylinder two stroke DKW F93. In the subzero winters up there I don't remember him ever having any trouble with it. He used to have a plastic thing he stuck on the window to keep it from icing up on the inside.

I was just riding my '78 IT175 around the mountains yesterday. Nice to have a 30 year old smokepot that still holds it's own against the latest/greatest 250 4 strokes. Oh yes, and it hasn't needed a rebuild in the 5 years I've had it.

There is a guy in Orlando selling a mint condition, all original (even the tires!) Yamaha RD 350. It looks like it was just ridden home from the dealer. I want it so bad I can taste it, but just don't have the money. He's asking $6,800, but will take a lot less...

If anyone is interested, send me a PM and I'll forward his email.
