The website admin problems we had when we first started The Airhead seem to have re-emerged. The sudden increase in subscribers over the last few days seems to have blown its digital mind and strange things have been happening. Subscribers passwords have been lost, gobbledygook ones put in their place and pdf's have not been sent. Just to complicate matters this has all been happening at random and many people have not been affected at all.
I've gone through everything manually and I THINK I've got everything sorted but if any of you have any sort of problems, or have not received your issued 2 then please let me know and I'll correct things.
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!
