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 was friends with an ex-bike courier from DC. He told me that a lot fo the guys using motorcycles were riding airheads due to reliablitly and tractorable/quiet motors. Wonder what happened to them all??
