I can't say I know a ton about motorcycles, but I know I like two strokes! Feel free to post anything and everything. I'll start it off with a nice Kawasaki H1 Triple. Love the sound.

I love the smell of a high revving two stroke engine. Too bad there's no way I can post that.

I used to have an H1 Triple, what a machine! Only reason I don't still have it is because three gallon tank + 15mpg in high-octane + expensive two-stroke oil was extremely bad for my wallet.

Bubs, that Kawasaki was an awesome machine. Terribly thirsty but awesome :lol:. I nearly bought an RD350 a couple months ago. But I remembered you (and others) talking about how bad that 500 was, and I recalled only getting 35-40mpg out of my DT250. Price on the RD350 wasn't great either, so that killed the deal.

I used to run used engine oil through my DT250. That counts as recycling, right? Questionable gas that's been in a jug in the shed for 2 years? Sure! Premix from my weedeater when I'm out of oil? Why not?! That bike ran on anything and nobody followed me anywhere. :mrgreen:

Were the H1 Triples as deadly as they were made out to be?
