Cool glad we agree on that one

It doesnt have to be "Airhead" Specific but I really do think you will be surprised at just how many people on here have older bikes too go with there new stuff.

Give big space to the festive dog that makes sport in roadway. Avoid entanglement of dog with wheel spokes.

Go soothingly on the grease mud, As there lurks the skid demon. Press the brake foot as you roll around the corners, And save the collapse and tie up.

yeah lots of places to get info, hell you see all kinds of Van Gogh on the interent too.


there is something about an advrider take on Old School Rides that seems like a work of art waiting to happen.
Most of the airhead sites are just so goddamn nice. Why do people with old bikes have to be so fucking genteel all the time.

Proposed rule number one of Old School Rides, cussing and beer are the first two required items in any advrider's roll away tool box.
Proposed rule number two, if the first two tools cannot solve the problem it may just be too big a problem for any one man to solve.

Proposed Rule Three - black socks and shorts will warrant an immediate beating, on sight, every time, no exceptions, ever.

Proposed Rule Four - ban all subsequent rules.

now, who do we gotta fuck to get our money pit related forum?

translated form advriderese into english the above sentence = please

You know that your right, There are alot of other forums relating to "Airheads" on the net. But there are also alot of other places for GS's & KTM's & everything else that is supported here, So does that make them less interesting to some people.

I always thought that this was an online community & it cattered for all different people & tastes, Maybe Im wrong.
Not trying to argue, I read the whole thread before I posted last, and I was one of only two people who supported my 'NO' vote with a post, that's all. Made sense that you were talking to me.

Like I said, vintage bikes makes more sense. I like looking at old bikes.

Vintage bikes - cool. I thought "airheads" applied to us all anyway, regardless of bike. As the ADVRider rep to the Vincent Owners Club, I vote "hell yes".

well...

The whole reason I started this topic was to be able to access the wealth of information about BMW Airhead GS's, which gets buried under an avalanche of oil head stuff in the BMW forum... what we should really have is a split in the BMW forum for air/oil.



Not that a fastback, super hawk or RD isn't an adventure bike to someone, but do they really qualify in terms of this forum???



Com on! Add the vintage bike thing into the "Road Warriors" forum and be done with it!

dude, if a road cow like a 1972 R60/5 (you had one) qualifies as an advride I cannot see how a 1972 Hodaka Wombat 125 would not - old school ain't gotta be a road bike, so where would this sweet little baby fit if not alongside some old airheads, a Z1, a Commando and an El Dorado?

Every ride is an adventure when you ain't sure you are going to get home.

Old School Rides will be like the Island of Misfit Toys, but for grown ups.

Bring on the Old School Rides - "Fuck MTV, I Want My OSR"

just look at it - it so fucking cool I need a winter coat just to look at it.
