I'm delighted to say that the saviour of the BMW company in the 70's - the man who designed the iconic R90s and many of the models that followed - has now become a member of, and contributor to, The Airhead. I've already got exciting material from him that will go in the next issue and he has promised to send more. So many of us see him as a near-God for the work he did on the BMW range and I feel humble, proud and excited to have him as a member. His contributions are a real coup for us and are sure to make the Airhead an even better read.

Now that's what I would call a coupe de Gras! Am I allowed to say, "eat your heart out ### Club"

My thanks to Hans Muth for the R90S not only a great motorcycle but it always seemed to me a sculptural work of art.

AH! The famed designer of my R65LS, a fantastic coup for The Airhead Fellowship.

About me

I'm Peter Ardron, British, and if my Father had had his way I would have been reared on oil, not milk. My dad rode Speedway and was obsessed with all types of motorbikes. He made me my first motorbike almost as soon as I could ride without stabilizers. Surprisingly I only ever broke a collar bone once whilst careering around the farm on a bike (often without brakes) throughout my childhood and teens.

Father also believed you weren't a real man unless you could strip and rebuild an engine at the roadside. Even as a young kid I often had to 'earn' my spending money by diagnosing faults he'd deliberately built into engines, or by stripping carbs, re-timing ignitions etc etc.

I loved it, but my wife says it's the reason I turned out so bloody odd!

I've been addicted to Airheads since my early teens and, though I've owned and loved K's, and had one or two other makes, there's rarely been a time in the past 40 years that I've not had an Airhead in the garage.

I started 'The Airhead' ezine because I think the provision for classic BMW riders in the U.K. is awful. There are thousands on the roads but no-one seems interested in catering for them.

So on the basis that, if others won't do it for us ,we'll just have to do it it for ourselves, 'The Airhead' was born!
