Airheadless and bummed..

I know, sounds like a Dear Annie column, but its true. I traded my R80RT for a nice 4x4 pick up that I NEEDED for this winter and am without an Airhead. I am also in the unpleasant place where due to the eco I can't justify buying even a nice used one right now till things improve.....DAMN! And I so want an R65LS to trick out motor wise!!!!

Sniper,

Check in with me on Friday or Saturday. I might be able to set you up with a good airhead project. I'm moving to the PNW and could leave part of my airhead world behind with you. You know the number.

Thanks, I didn't realize how painful it would be without an Airhead till about Oh, ten seconds after I got rid of mine.

I "retired" mine to a barn for a few years. I went through several other motorcycles. Got the old bike out of mothballs and have completed its resurrection; I've done short test rides and just about ready to RIDE! Let me know if you need any help.

Spokane. But I have family on the Wet side and graddiated from youdub so I will be riding around your old stomping grounds frequently.

Would be great to meet you. I am accustomed to hosting two tech days per year. Interested?

I'll come to one (or more) eventually. I don't plan on being in Mexico forever.

I'll sell my R60/6 in St Louis for fairly cheap as long as I get first dibs at buying it back.. It runs. Needs tires and a battery.

WTF happened to your '77 RS and R60/5.

You trade'em for Kimbers or something.
