I have owned a few clones over the last few decades. And I have compared the usefulness to everything from ujm, sportbikes, scooters, cruisers from all big 4, Aprilia and harley. Ahh just bikes to me. I do kinda like old harleys and clones for wrenching and modding. I think about a yz125x about the same as a gpx tse. Which ever delivers and is less trouble wins. I cant mix politics with motos. Ha even though....but that has nothing to do with good service, affordable prices and parts. Maybe the saving grace to this world is moto unity. So post the clones, discuss why not and whatever. Enthusiasts are enthusiasm. Have fun!
