OH, on the contrary - I think that would be a PERFECT commuter bike!

pfff, just keep some 2stroke oil in a canister and meter out the right amount of gas from the pump, then mix by shaking the shit out of the bike.

I'm actually surprised that you like this thing Rob. Doesn't your KTM have more HP and usable powerband over this bike? Plus you can make KTMs street legal!

some states you just have to have your local Barney Fife look at the bike and make sure it has all the proper road equipment. they sign a form that you take to the DMV and they hand you a title.

you could easily title a MX bike in Indiana and then bring it to IL

Dunno about more HP, but the powerband on the KTM is more useable. Thats not the point. This thing is lighter and I'm sure the vicious powerband on that thing would be 'entertaining' to say the least. That's why I say fun/terrifying.

Maintenance would be easier too.

Yep- If I could afford and find a 500 2 stroke gamma I would ride it on the street with a backpack full of oil bottles!
