Airhead Article Oil Coolers
I would love to see an article on the Oil Coolers and any problems with the banjo bolts etc. I recently added an airhead to the mix and it has been my first experience with one with the oil cooler. Or if I missed this in an MOA mag would appreciate info on this.:type
Perhaps a reprint.......just to get so things going.
Many of us are thrilled that there still is such a interest in the older airhead bikes. No one is saying that they should be out there running around with all the big boys.......but still......in their day.....they could rock. I did write several articles about building up these old engines and perhaps our new editor should consider a reprint of these.......just for the members out there who still care about and love the airheads of yesteryear. If the editor would like I can forward the original version of the HOT ROD piece I published as it answers so many questions about getting more from the pre 85 bikes.
We are on down the line now. I have written a bit about modifications one might consider for the new R12S for instance......but no one from BMWON has stepped forward and ask for any articles of this type. I have felt that the direction of the magazine has change and that their is very little interest in what some might construe as politically incorrect writing about how to make them faster. Thoughts?

Dr. Curve, sir.....
I think you are correct in your assessment that the mag has changed. I've found little of interest in the issues since the change in editors and the effort to increase the direction of our organization toward the internet. In fact, I am considering not renewing my subscription or renewing my membership: there is nothing in the last few issues of MOA that I find of interest. The mag is just too bland and slick: can you conceive of a column now that Higdon, "Lucifer", Cwi or Sancken would be published without being censored?
Naw.....the mag is too slick: extolling the new bikes that a vast majority of us cannot afford nor choose to ride; pages of tours that only a very few can afford to take and not a word about major problems with the new bikes. Nope.....it's become a brochure for BMWNA, advertisers and politically correct constipated "leaders".
Brody, Higdon, Susan, Phatt, where are you when we need you. Y'all made me mad, you encouraged me, you outraged me, you disgusted me, you made me laugh and made me think from a different perspective and you made me look forward to another issue of the mag.
Hell, Curve, write some articles.....maybe the new board of censors will print them without editing, but I doubt it.
budamy, waiting for the next issue of Airheads and rereading all my back issues of BMWMOA from the 70s, 80s and 90s.
