Club Info??

A quick question about some of the BMW clubs. Since I have been obsessed with getting an AirHead I have been lurking on this thread, and reading anything Airhead related I can get my hands on. I keep getting e-mails from BMW- MOA about joining, I have been on the Airheads site, and BMWIRA??( I know that last one is wrong). Anyway what one would probably be the best one to join and support? It will probably be hard to beat this thread for info, as I have already gained quite abit of insite already.Thanks in advance.

If you have an Airhead, then by all means join the Airheads. A wealth of info and knowledge. Plus local tech days and you can go to the national rallies and hang out at Airhead central and possibly learn more.

By all means what MM said, join the Airheads. This is the club for all things Airhead, the bike, and the members are also called Airheads. Info on joining the ABC is on their web site found here;

http://www.airheads.org/

Also join the Airlist which is the Email group started by the Airheads many years ago. It is not required to be an Airhead to be on the Airlist but do both. The Airlist is free but Micapeak, which hosts the Airlist, will ask for a donation once a year. You will find info on joining the Airlist at the Micapeak web site here;

http://micapeak.com/

The IBMWR is another club. I can't tell you much about them because I'm not a member. But they have the most active want ads list on their web site. Found here;

www.ibmwr.org

The BMWMOA (Motorcycle Owners of America) is the parent of many motorcycle clubs and they publish a glossy magazine every month that used to contain many more tech articles for Airhead owners. Since the vast majority of BMW Motorcycle Owners are these days not Airheads we don't have as much presence in the club any more it seems. At least not as many articles about fixing Airheads. Still how much technical info can one actually use? I've thought for years to drop my membership in MOA but I get my towing insurance with my membership and so it's time again to send them my money. The MOA is found at;

http://www.bmwmoa.org/

There may be more but that's all that comes to mind right now. I have to go outside and work on my bike now. Good luck.
