I wish I could have been there for that. I was saddened when the 2 Strokes were replaced by 4 Strokes. Don't get me wrong, I like the sound of 4 Strokes on song, but it isn't as sweet as a four cylinder smoker on the pipes.
If one reeeeely wants to hear racing two strokes at full song, hunt about for stuff from the pre-silencer era.
Such as the 60s era Yamaha 250 cc 4 cylinder 2 stroke.
Or the 60s era twins in general.
Silenced 4 cylinder 500s are pussy cat sounding in comparison.
Those bikes were vicious to ride at the limit.
Like V Rossi said, fun and easy to ride at 90 %, but not at 100%.
Like King Kenny said sometime back in the late 70s or early 80s, "there's maybe like 6 guys that can really ride these things".
Wonderful to see them again !
