When The Aledude posts, good sense usually follows.
I have always had a liking for the 50cc racing classes. The 50cc Gran Prix bikes were marvels when the factory teams ran them. Something about the concise clarity of restraint, working within a defined parameter that pitted the engineering and mechanics against each other but also about parity and the rider's ability on the track. Or for that matter, what Buddenbaum got from a 50 (145mph) on the salt flats. Kind of what "stock" car racing was initially about.
The upshot is, it's what legal in many states.
