in case you'd not seen a pic. Honda Moto3 Bike
Yes i saw the NRS and Honda can fuck off for the 28,000 price tag and trying to kill the two strokes.
I'll take two. 2T are so 80's.
LMAO! I knew you would chime in NCB. Hope things are well in your life.
Oh, and a good friend of mine would be more than glad to see you at the track with your 4T while he'll be on his Aprilia RSR125.
Sorry brother, but I've breathed in too much C12 and A747...Bubba is changed man.
I wonder if norkleboy is a two or four stroker when riding one of those Filipina hookers?
I know I'd be more of a wankel
Trojan just can't build a seal that will last
Like my daddy always said, "Son, there is more than one use for a trochoid" .
in this case, maybe more of a hypotrochoid
Whatever turns your crank
I picture norkleboy as more a Sterling engine dude.
On the race scene here on the left coast where everyone is not Rossi or Hailwood and racing is mostly fun. We gots a bunch of guys who do some really nice shit to old Honda 160s. A couple of those guys also race Honda 125 GP two strokes. I hope nobody is under the impression that those are 28K rides. Just ain't so.
Unfortunately, they will not be coming back. It was a great slice of time in motorcycling.
I still believe that riding and racing the 2t has helped my riding. The nasty, narrow, unforgiving powerbands, and what was passed off as suspension in the 70's to early 80's is something that everyone should have gotten to experience.
These engines didn't run for 100K miles without splitting the cases, hell, they were lucky to last two race weekends. Learning how to work on your own stuff, read spark plugs, jet carbs, porting theory, exhaust shape theory, etc. etc. was mandatory. These engines are much better for learning the basics of how engines work.
These bikes also taught you how to really ride a motorcycle, There weren't throttle tubes that compensated for your lack of ability to control the throttle properly, automatic transmissions, or any of that crap. They hit hard, were ruthless, and uncompromising. These bikes required you to actually develop real skills to ride them to the upper edges of their capabilities.
That is now gone, and it's never coming back. However, blaming this on Honda is absurd.
