Alright, I have been a two stroke guy since I was a wee lad. Currently, I own an 01 and 07 yz 250 and an 85 it 200. Recently, just because the price was right and I planned on reselling, I picked up an 08 yz250f. Literally didn't even think it would leave my garage until I sold it. I was ignorant to riding 4 strokes. I rode an 09 yz450f for about 30 sec and that was all the expierence I had. Let's just say I was stereotypical and really just hated the premise behind the 4 strokes so I really never wanted to ride one. Yes, they are more maintainence heavy, and exceedingly different to ride. More top heavy, not as snappy, etc. But that's neither here nor there. So while looking at this 250f, obviously I had to ride it. Kind of enjoyed just putting the bike around. It suprised me. So getting it home, decided I would take it to the track the next day, just to really get a feel of it. I honestly loved it. The smoothness to it, the ease of riding, and the speed you get out of them astounded me. I am just here admitting that I was ignorant and hated 4 strokes 100% based on thought. I still love my 2 strokes and they are my bikes of choice but I will say that I am thourougly glad that I purchased this and may look into them into the future. So my question, is there anyone out there, like I, who wasn't or isn't savvy to the ways of a 4 stroke, an not like them based on premise?
