Nature Abhors a Vacuum.
Until April 2015 the U.K. was almost a no-go area for riders of Classic BMW's. There was no club dedicated to the older BMW's; no magazines solely about them and only the sketchiest of BMW articles ever appeared in the motorcycling press. It was almost as if this iconic brand of motorcycles had never existed.
And hence The Airhead Ezine was created. At first it was embryonic: just a humble attempt to share information and ideas amongst a small group of British BMW enthusiasts. But then it began to grow... and grow... until today it is a focal point and voice for classic BMW enthusiasts worldwide, with subscribers from 22 countries. And it is growing every day.
It was out of The Airhead Ezine that the BMW Airhead Fellowship developed. The Fellowship is the body of 'The Airhead' subscribers. We are not a traditional club:
We have no allegiance to any company, corporation or institution.
We have no paying advertisers to blur our objectivity
We have no formal constitution
We are just ordinary BMW enthusiasts sharing knowledge, ideas and experience between ourselves. But The BMWAF offers its members the benefits of a club, with a thriving electronic magazine, discounts for insurance and motorcycling goods, Tool Hire facilities, a Mutual Help Scheme, Tech Days and occasional get-togethers and rides out. We are the ONLY organisation in the U.K. catering solely for Vintage BMW's
From the outset we have tried unashamedly to establish ourselves as 'the good guys' doing things for the benefit of our members, not for profit or personal gain. The Fellowship is a Mutual Help organisation, not a scheme for making money. Any profits made are donated to The Air Ambulance, for whom we are authorised fund raisers.
The Airhead is our on-line magazine, written by and for its readers. Issued at least twice a month (usually monthly in Winter) it is full of riders' tips, advice, anecdotes and experience from around the world.
Anyone who writes an article for The Airhead joins for free. Those who prefer not to do this are simply asked to donate to our chosen charity - The Air Ambulance. Details on how to subscribe are available HERE
