The only two stroke I have ever owned was a KDE125, and the points you mention certainly applied, but I have to say it was far nippier than the XL125 Honda I had. Quite frankly, with the XL I think I could have got from A to B quicker on foot.
It eventually got nicked from my garage and that was the last I saw of it.

Not so sure about smelly & oily, and my Kettle (Suzuki GT750).

I have to keep reminding myself how miserable it was commuting in the rain, and how crowded and even more badly maintained the roads have become in the last 20 years.
Also, riding a long at 7:30 with -2c temps + -15c wind chill. Every limb is numb, can feel breaks/clutch/gear lever etc Ice built up on the helmet especially where your breath has frosen.
And then arriving into a hot office......ohh the pain!
"I just didn't see you"
And summer, sweating like a pig unless doing 90mph. The constant danger of wasps/bees flying down your jacket (happened to me, got stung 4 times from the neck down).

Engine breaking is for lazy people. That was one thing I hated when first using a 4-stroke.
