Just for all you two stroke nuts, today we had a race, and I holeshot three of four moto's and a second place start in the fourth moto with a 30 rider gate in each moto on the trusty yz250. Can't beat that bike with a stick, take that four strokes. It makes me laugh, because the bike is box stock, I am a upper B level rider, and everyone was coming up looking at the bike. It boggles the four stroker's minds that they don't get the Hole Shot....gotta love that. P.S. Im NOT saying the bike is faster than a 450...but with a good jump, and a little luck, these bikes can hang easily with them. I love two strokes.
