Another thing to keep in mind on a 4 cycle is there are a lot more parts to deal with since they have to have a gear reduction transmission and I have yet to hear of one that is as trouble free as a 2 cycle.
Ok, so is it head-turning loud or just a slight bit louder, cause if it isn't that much of a difference I'd be fine with it. Also, I'm not a small person, but I thought that the 2's had more get-up-and-go and the 4's had a higher top speed total. With your 2, whats your average and top speeds, assuming minimal hills and such?
