Colorado is infamous as one of two states to legalize personal possession of marijuana. And, for several years, 4/20 has been a date for “pot heads” to come together and indulge.
So, it was fitting that yesterday, 4/20, I was invited to attend an Airhead Tech Day. Airhead riders congregated and got high, not from the consumption of cannabis, but from working on air-cooled BMW motorcycles, or Airheads in the vernacular.
My wife and I own two Airhead BMWs; I, a 1975 R75/6, and she, a 1973 R75/5. As her’s is in the midst of a rebuild, and she had a guitar lesson, only the”Silver Ghost” and I attended the festivities.
I think it fair to say all those in the driveway and on the street got high on the camaraderie, the eye candy of the many Airhead bikes, and the exchange of knowledge, wrenching and advice that was in abundant supply.It was a most excellent day.
