Airheads

Why don't you guys have a separate section for Airheads and keep them away from these smelling Oilheads.

or don't you know the difference, (could have put this in Jo Momma's)

Holy Cow - what have I said!

Mik O was sent to do his duty and educate you - by all accounts you are being nice to him, although he is an oilhead spy

Separate Airhead Section - what do you think - is it a good idea - you guys are wizards with computers - it should only take you 2 or 3 seconds - tell someone to get on their Apple.

Cheers

So many of the same things apply to both bikes. Both bikes questions and issues seem to fit together in here OK IMO. Just because you guys over at UKGStossers.com separate them doesn't mean thats they way everyone should do it.

My ADV is very different from my 80/7 and my G/S

In my experience Oilheads and Airheads owners do have different interests, the most common of which being that quite a lot of Oilhead owners do not do any home maintenance whatsoever, they are more interested in other aspects of Bike ownership.
Some do not even know what tire, (tyre), pressures they should be running and many do not posses even an oil filter removal tool. This is a major difference.


Just my opinion

but its your Forum

So what? I got mine to ride it and not to fiddle around with it in a garage.

On the other hand, an airhead (brunette for me pls) would be perfect for both..

I am not saying that not knowing about the tire pressures is good or bad - I am saying that the interests can be very different with the consequence that, if there were two different sections, the threads on each would focus on different things.

At the end of the day everything in this world is related and by the same token everything is different.

Are you saying that the interests of Airhead owners are the same as Oilheads and that the same things apply to both bikes - if you are, we are on completely different planets.

Whose forum? It's yours, too, you know; all you need is the above-- an opinion.

I won't speak for other people. You are entitled to your opinion. If you see major differences, that's up to you. I don't, I'd like to see people sharing their hobby or passion. That's what i'm here for.

So, what if you ride both types ? I need the old bike that can be repaired easily, when the oilhead is in need of diagnostics of the fuel injection.
