Jim Gibson and Kent Howerton on the May 1981 cover.


For those old enough to remember the 1981 Honda’s, they can never forget the wing-like front number plate. It was designed to allow more air to get to the engine. Scorekeeper hated it because the numbers faced upwards. One of the big play riding games of the MXA wrecking crew was to try and scoop dirt with the front number plate. Sounds impossible, but it could be done in a deep sand berm?as Jim Gibson proves for the cover of the May 1881 issue. Amazingly, this sand berm was shot at rock hard Saddleback Park.
