The only beemers I see round here belong to the guy I bought mine from. He still has 2, a '75 R90/6 & an '85 K100RT. Says he's been riding air heads since '85 & been through a slew of them. He found mine in '93 sittng long term in a barn of someone he knows. Since he doesn't turn his own wrench he spent $800 (incl. tires) putting it back on the road. Don't know what all was done, but he got ripped off. Guy primarily only works on Jap bikes. And the mech. nick named mine the dog food bike. When I asked why all he told me was that once he got it started it threw out a lot of dog food pellets across the shop. According to the title mine only had 9K on it in '93 P.O. indicates he hasn't put but 2-3K on it since then. But now the odo is scrambled so I don't know. But I do know the P.O. and have no reason to not believe him. Rarely saw him ride my R80 and rides his other 2 on a frequent basis, both fairing bikes. Doesn't like neked. Tried to give it to his son and when he told me the story, Told him I'd take it since his son turned it down. Good day for me!!!

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.
Wonder if that was Blaine hale and his brother and friends?

St. Louis - Soulard

I saw this thread before, but considering I can count on one hand how many times I've seen an airhead on the roads around here, it wasn't of much use to me.

However, today I saw a blue toaster tank in Soulard/St. Louis. I was in McGurk's and you drove by on 12th Street. I was extra excited because my own toaster is getting close.

If you're out there, shoot me a PM!

Yeah, a whopping ONE time I saw another airhead in the STL area.. a black R75/6 like mine just a couple blocks from my house in St Charles in fact. No idea who it was. From 2004 until a couple months ago when I moved, I was riding all over STL.

Yeah, not many airheads in the St. Louis area. Sorry to hear that you moved! My bike is finally getting close and I still planned to contact you for a ride this Spring!

Couple of days ago. I was parked in front of Starbucks on Peachtree. You were riding on Peachtree toward town with a passenger. They weren't kidding when they said there were a lot of airheads about in ATL.

My wife's cousin lives in ATL. I need to visit more. I've seen one airhead in more years than I can count here in STL. Damn.

We're over flowing with Airheads here. I have one you can ride while you're down here...and another one for myself. Fred has like 20 of them.
