Okay lets be up front here and totally honest. I have never rode a 2 stroke. The only one I have ever started was a little kids at a race. It was so small I couldn't kick start it. I had to do it with my hand. I currently ride a 2008 WR250F. I was brought up trail riding and running desert roads. My old man pounded in my head that 2 strokes were race bikes and couldn't lug or do the trail stuff. So now that I'm getting more and more into riding I see lots and lots of 2 strokes on the trails. One that I keep seeing over and over is the KTM300. I'm trying to find someone with a 2 stroke that I can ride and deside for myself but until then I want to know what you guys think the biggest pro's and con's are between the bikes. Give me a few examples too. What will I notice? Riding a 4 stroke my whole life I have no clue what to expect out of a 2 stroke. I'm tempted to buy a 2 stroke just to see and learn for myself but give me your thoughts.
