I think its time the Trials Community take a stand in the World of Motorcycling and Outlaw
4 Strokes in Competition. The things are really overpriced nightmares created by government
regulation rather than common sense. And add Fuel Injection into the Ban also!!!

Get real.............................why a ban, on what grounds?

You don't have to ride one................., so stick to a 2 stroke

What a joke, is it April 1st already :hyper: :chairfall:

consumer is king, and from sales its clear what the consumer prefers. consumer choice though is critical so 4st development is a positive for all.

choice is king, Let one be banned and before you know it our sport will be banned! All the bleeding hart tree huggers need is an excuse.

Variety is the spice of life!
I'll tell you what; why don't you sit down, draw up a list of all those who are better than you and ban them instead?
Oh what fun you will have competing against ....... erm, no-one!!

This must be a joke, I'm sure. The idea of restricting a rider's choice of powerplants in motorsports competition seems to fly in the face of our flag-waving, I'm-more-freedom-loving-than-you, too much is not enough U.S. heritage we seem to joyfully profess to pursue. :)

I'm old enough to remember the cry to restrict two-strokes in the 50s and 60s so maybe this is just completeing the circle, yet again. Not sure about the FI thing, though, as a direct FI two-stroke is classified s a low-emissions engine under the stringent California standard.

I'm an old dragracer, I say we ban gasoline and run everything on Nitromethane.....:)

I think Kramit is high on his own two stroke smoke. ;-) But really I think it's just a post to get us 4T guy's backs up, didnt work with me. Live and let live, but you can't beat a good 4 stroke, rather have one in front of me in a que, rather than one of those dirty, smelly 2T's. :-(

not sure where you get off with that, perhaps it was a solar flare effecting the plates in your head, but, i do tend to agree, ban 4 strokes but for other reasons, ban 2 strokes as well, we HAVE to ge electric, its the only future.
now i know this wont be poular but i couldnt give a F*** .
If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,  
then you'll probably get a 3

no !
I didn't mean it :0)

I wouldn't ban anything, choice is a good thing, it would be boring if we all rode the same thing. But the 4RT rocks ;0).
Electric, no thanks, hydrogen powered Honda 4RT H2o, yes please, although the liquid hydrogen tank might be a bit of a problem ;0).
