The rapture was yesterday and I was one of the chosen ones buy I had to come back down because I left my cellphone in my pants.

I heard that if Obama gets re-elected he will be sending in the EPA to confiscate all two stroke oil thereby making your smokers obsolete. It's true. Even the marine outboards will be high and dry. :smirk:

read the first post more closely. Its been a running joke around here for years. I believe we have had a "last year for yz....." post each and every year since 2007 or 08.

People don't get it, the agenda is to have fuel/energy prices skyrocket.

It will be the nail in the coffin for a lot of motorsports and race-bikes will be just a casualty.

Look up his quotes about electricity prices skyrocketing, I think if people like 3rd world living vote for him again...

Taxing how many miles you drive a year, if that is not an eye opener what is...

I've been considering shoehorning a two stroke into a WR250R frame, having a "legal" bike with an illegal power plant. Ha! I'll show them! I'll have to figure out how to fit an Autolube pump so I don't have the pre-mix. Shouldn't be too hard.

All fooling aside, I hope Yamaha doesn't give up on the Two-Strokes, I would like a new street legal direct injection two stroke myself. Wife just got a new car with DI, more power along with better mileage. An updated and uprated RD or DT would be great.

They already do: fuel taxes. I'm aware that with better fuel economy, the scheme is to get you by mileage instead to recover all of the lost revenue since you traded your F150/250 in on that Prius last year during the cash for clunkers program. ( right: all F150/250 owners secretly really want a Prius, don't they? I know I do!)

Hmm, back to the steel frame. And some new fangled rear suspension that requires guitar-string-tightness on the chain.
