Makes the old 175 BSA Bantam I used to have donkeys years ago look a bit inadequate.

Used to do some trials riding back in the early 80s for about 3 years “but i wasn't that good” & a friend & myself went to see a one of our club meets in Middlesex just as spectators. So just before the meet started a Japanese guy turned up but as he didn't have the right credentials, so they gave him a black & white novice number to compete. He then went back to his box trailer & pulled out this brand new 200cc 4 stroke Honda trials bike. No one had seen one of these as everyone was on 2 strokes back then.
This guy went through the whole competition without fault & won. It was like watching a gymnast/ballet dancer in full control of the bike.
He also didn't take his winning cup & asked for it to be handed back down the order of winners.
Turns out he was a Honda works ridder over for the Scottish 6 day trials & was just out for some practice before he went up to Scotland. He made everything look so effortless with just pure skill. A Day to Remember.

When ever I hear about Bantams I always think of the Telegraph Boys who used to dart all over London like jet propelled shirt buttons.

This was my baby until a couple of years ago, 1500cc of joy :D She took my wife and I around Europe with friends and especially the Black Forest in Germany. Unfortunately due to tonsillar cancer in 2013 the treatment left me with slower reactions. Not something you want on a bike!
She was 19 years old when I sold her and looked as good as the day I bought her. I can honestly say I had tears in my eye during the last ride.

Enjoy Mike (Dynax) it really is the best way to travel....
