THE DATE - JULY 13, 14 &15 2018
THE VENUE - RISEHOLME COLLEGE, LINCOLN, ENGLAND
THE EVENT - 'The AIRHEAD EVENT' -THE LARGEST GATHERING OF VINTAGE AND CLASSIC BMW BIKES PLUS RIDERS EVER IN THE U.K.

This isn't a Rally or a Show: it's an Event - The Airhead Event. And it will be unmissable for anyone who appreciates the older, air-cooled bikes that established BMW's reputation for quality engineering, superb design and long-legged performance.

It's a bit like a rally, with rides outs, socialising, quizzes and prizes, - and it's also got elements of a Show, with the largest display of vintage and classic BMW's ever - plus the usual vendors and trade stands.

But it's so much more, with continuous activities, talks and demonstrations throughout the weekend - Technical demonstrations and talks will always be available, with the likes of Steve Scriminger, Bob Porecha and Ian Brocklebank already signed up to share their considerable knowledge. There will be presentations on a variety of topics - from tyres,oils, lighting upgrades, batteries etc etc. There will be Airhead Celebrities of the calibre of Hans Muth and Elspeth Beard to regail you with their experience and knowledge. All these are already committed - many more are in the pipeline. Insurance permitting you'll even be able to experience the pleasures of riding pre-1969 and pre-war BMW's around the private grounds of the college.
One thing I'd love to do will need the involvement of all Club members to make it work.

On the Sunday we plan on getting together as many different BMW models as possible I don't think it's ever been done before - to have not just the whole range of slash2, 5,6,7 G/S models etc, but to go back - right back to pre-war and have an example of every model in the U.K?

I've been in touch with BMW Motorrad as it links in with their Heritage marketing theme. But even with their support it will take a lot of goodwill and co-operation from a lot of people to make it happen. But wouldn't that be worth it?? Maybe a cavalcade to Lincoln for an aerial photoshoot from the top of the cathedral? Or in the castle grounds? Or hire a drone, perhaps? It's an opportunity that won't come again and it would be well worth the effort if we can pull it off! Can anyone volunteering a bike please pm me. Thanks
