MEMORIES OF THE WAY WE WERE: THE KNOX BOX

KNOXBOX3Back in the day, the Yamaha Monshock came with two separate air filters (one on each side of the Monoshock). Texas racer Dewitt Knox III built a fiberglass box on the rear fender of his YZ250 and ran flex tubing from both sides to get sufficient air into the engine. In the early days of motocross, innovation knew no bounds and the Knox Box was part of motocross lore.

THE NOT MOTOCROSS PHOTO OF THE WEEK

VET 18 COVERALLSYou gotta admire any rider in today’s status-conscious world who doesn’t care what anyone thinks. But what’s the deal with the Gomer Pyle visor. Colorado’s Pete Edmisten having fun.

VISITING THE PAST: YZ RADIATOR PLACEMENT

1982yamahayzadIf you wanted a yellow Yamaha, you didn’t have to order a 60th anniversary Edition and pay $100 premium back in 1982. They were all yellow then.
