There is a '79 R100S that lives close to me in the Orange paint scheme ... and even closer to HWY 78. His name is Scott and he's not on ADV. He's a Professor of Renaissance Literature at Georgia State ... interesting character. But that's the only Orange one I know around here.

Can't say what color the grips are, but I bet we are talking about the same bike.

As this thread grows I envision hundreds of airheads being dragged out of garage piles so the riders can travel about then check this thread for official notice.

I see airheads regularly if not weekly in Albuquerque when I ride.

At least one g/s courier bike from New York City resides in my shop.

I've seen exactly two airheads this summer, other than mine. One was in Maine and one was in New Hampshire. Actually, I lied. I saw a number of nice ones at Max's in NH when a buddy had to stop and get his hex head serviced!. I don't count them, looked like they had been there for a while.

The scarcety of regular service airheads out east, and especially in the Maritimes would explain the interest I seem to generate when stopped. On the part of other BMW riders it's equal parts disbelief, amazement or distain.

The San Francisco Bay Area has a ton of airheads around. I've been taking a break from working and going on long bicycle rides around San Francisco and usually see a few airheads per day. Within 2 hours you've also got Ted Porter's, San Jose BMW, and BoxerMetal our there in Chico.

I've been meaning to start a blog with all the BMW's I see around here. Today I saw an 81 R100CS with an "S" fairing. Was lovely and didn't take a picture.

I did however take a picture of this one-of-a-kind sidecar rig that was parked down the street from me. Check it out:

Wow, this is a really useless post, but I don't see that many airheads near my house. Today (12/23/12) around 12:30, leaving the QT at Briarcliff Rd/Clifton, heading south on N. Highland. Couldn't get a good look -- Green bonneville, r90s maybe, some other airhead, and an oilhead gs bringing up the rear. I was the tundra swerving in front of you trying to get a pic.
