Yeah Pete... it holds it's own pretty well... It acts like a 4 stroke more than a 2 stroke. It has a very smooth pull, once on the pipe... and I can lug it down on trails and have yet to foul a plug... It's like riding a John Deere tractor on the trails... lots of power on the bottom. I had to stiffen the suspension up a tad since I am a pretty big dude... but I don't take many jumps and stuff anymore... so it's just fine for me.
My only complaint is the vibrations... After riding for more than 2 hours my hands start to go numb. I used to suffer from arm pump way back when... but that doesn't even compare to your hands actually going numb from vibes...
When I show up to a place to ride I usually get a small crowd eveytime I unload the bike from the truck that ask a ton of questions... It's a pretty fun old bike to own.
