Seattle area airheads

Those hulahoops in Atlanta have their own thread, so it seemed like a good idea for the ever increasing number of Seattle area airhead owners to have a place to announce meet-ups, tech days, offers / requests for in-person technical assistance, tool loans, etc. If you live in the Seattle area (or really anywhere in Western WA) and have an airhead (or any cool old bike) it's time to sound off.

To start with, I know HouseofFubar and Elite-less are trying to get a monthly breakfast going on the third Sunday. Location to move monthly.

I assume "hulahoop" is Seattlese for 'pure awesomeness'.

Looks like I got to find a way to pop out to Seattle at some point.

Bellingham is getting going too

Way up here where Costco is a Canadian store...we have a few guys that meet about airheads. All motorcycle talk is important! And Airhead Wrangler, we need to meet so I can thank you in person for hosting my son a year or so ago, Ryan on his beatup 1997 F650 on his way to Columbia. His ride report was:
Bellingham to Brazil, Not Coming Back. He is now in Madrid and works for IMT Bikes, one of his jobs is taking the new bikes out and returning them with 600 miles so they are ready to rent, they have 55 new BMW's !
Appreciate keeping me posted on meetings etc and I will do my best to get some folks down south. My email is a gmail account, kurt.brunhaver@
thanks for kick starting the airheads, the four speeds that is!
Kurt

Sounds like he'll get some serious miles in this year. Wow. It was our pleasure having him stay with us. Great guy. I had no idea (what I would guess to be) the only airhead rental place in the country is right up the road. Cool.

Great idea, subscribed! New to airheads so I'll definitely need some help at some point.. Also, if anyone has a lead on a solo seat of some sort that may or may not fit an R75, shoot me a PM!

True - not generally a bike you buy to putt around on at 5mph.

BTW - with just a few more posts I think we can completely hijack AW's thread and turn this from a Seattle thread into an ATL thread!

I knew mentioning you guys would backfire.
