KEEP­ING THE TWOSTROKE DREAM ALIVE

Performance Bikes (UK) - - Mail Box -

Re­ally en­joyed read­ing the RGV and RS250 fea­ture in PB. You are a pair of lucky bas­tards to ride those bikes, and it’s nice to see that you en­joyed them so much – and that there are teams ded­i­cated to keep­ing them go­ing. I take my hat off to the likes of Clive Pad­gett and Steve Wheat­man for putting their hands in their pock­ets to keep them go­ing. It sad­dens me that the world of two-strokes is dy­ing; both those ma­chines are be­yond sexy – as were the road­bikes that were in­spired by them. It’s nice to see PB keep­ing these bikes alive in the mag­a­zine. Karl White Couldn’t agree with you more, Karl. They’re amaz­ing ma­chines, and get­ting the chance to sam­ple one was with­out a doubt a high­light of my bik­ing life. The noise, the feel­ing of ac­cel­er­a­tion, and the thrill of hit­ting 12,000rpm in top on the Hangar Straight will live with me for­ever. I’m try­ing to for­get the fact I stalled it com­ing out of the pits... MW
