yeah we loose out on most of the cool bikes, we never got the rz500, you guys up north did, pretty much anything 2 stroke we lost out on in one way or another. but then again the banshee has been pretty much the same for the last, what, 10 years? (dont get me wrong, its got an rz350 motor for the most part so i love it anyway)
Props to him for being able to flip one of those around like he does but why would you want a bike that is underpowered compared to the 2T 250, has major engine braking that he must eliminate/minimize, and weighs about the same as a 250 2T. Seems like more work to me.
