    Yeah Great Photos Mate! Well done to get here in those Early Days! I never understood why Honda never kept producing the MTX? They were a fun little bike and the only Dirt bike option of the time and quite a Modern Bike compared to others of that Era! They could have easily made a 4-Stroke version with an Engine from the Phantom?

    Now I have a chance to to bring a lot of old video moovies from over 20 years ago to youtube. Trips on old Thailand 89 90 and so on. Also in Laos 1995 / 96 )97 I hope coming soon I think many people like it to see the old times.
