Since April 5, 2002:
April 5, 2002: A few days ago, I happened on my old slides, and the chance to scan these with a new slide scanner I found that a friend of mine owned! So... here we are with these historics:
This is in some Greek island. (Notice I used to sport a beard then... probably circa 1984!)
Along with two friends' XZ550 and GPZ550, at a local model airfield.
Nowadays at that same space lies the new Athens International Airport named Eleftherios Venizelos.
The XL at my front door.
My friend Epistimonas (Scientist!) flying my XL at a nearby practice MX track!
I even made a scale model of the XL!
Notice how small it shows on the real XL's panel!
I made this model heavily reworking a then current Tamiya 1/12 scale KTM 250 MX!
It was sure nice to have the original in the background!
This time on my terrace, alongside another long time favorite, the grand daddy of them all: the Yamaha DT1
