There is a very active group of Airheads called the R80 and R100 G/S Monolever and GS Paralever Owners Club.
They all ride type 247e BMW bikes.
Few are standard as they update suspensions and customise them for dirt road riding.
They are a varied bunch of personalities that share one passion - their Airhead BMW's.
Every year we gather from all over the country, riding to one place using as much dirt road :ricky: as we can.
At the Gathering, we all look at who has done what to their bikes.
We admire and advise - we also look for unused bits for our own bikes. :whistle:
It is like a family, where what is to be discarded by one is gratefully picked up by another who needs it.
We talk and exchange stories, laugh and groan and generally have a great time for two nights.
On the day between we ride out to wherever and back.
Then we all pack our bikes, say our goodbyes and ride back home again.

This is the Airhead bunch at this year's Gathering...

Go placidly amid the noise and haste. Remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons...
Avoid loud and aggressive persons - they are vexations to the spirit.
