I know where a couple more are parked.

30 years ago the Washington, DC metro area was full of Airheads and it appeared this was one of the hot spots for BMW. Now, there are just not that many except the ones that stay in the garage. A lot of Oilies though and K bikes have replaced them.

I think a little further South of here is a little bit better for spotting Airheads. There's recently been a lot of talk from the riders around Atlanta.

I ride my airhead to work every day and go on day trips around Northern VA almost every weekend. I've seen a couple /2's and some /5's, but way more oilies and K bikes. I can't comment on the decline of them on the road as I've not been around for 30 years, and only been in NoVA for a couple years.
