Back in the 60's and 70's I had a couple small-displacement, single-cylinder 2-stroke scramblers. Great little bikes that hauled my skinny carcass all over the PNW. In the 70's I had a '66 Saab Monte Carlo 850, a 3-cylinder 2-stroke car that was quite a change of pace from my prior '53 Plymouth sedan with a straight-six flathead.

I'm currently planning a motorized bicycle, but have pretty much decided to go with a 4-stroke. I want it to be really quiet, and that seems incompatible with a 2-stroke.
Best tank ever: 72.1 mpg in February 2005, Seattle to S.F.
New personnal best 'all-city' tank June '08 ... 61.9 mpg!
Thanks to 'pulse-n-glide' technique.
