    I'm kinda partial to the suggestion for "Camheads" although corn-dogs is funnier.

    and as the airheads are Simple by Choice, the Six Pack could be something like drive to drink / drink to drive , or drive one/drink one... or somthing like that..

    Cool

    If they require maintenance put them in the Woman's Forum. It might be enough make a second page of thread topics.
    If one cannot command attention by one's admirable qualities one can at least be a nuisance

    It's time to despel that rumor. Airhead motorcycles were not, when new, simple by choice. They were highly advanced engineering marvels of metallurgy and function that helped lay waste to their other European (mostly English and Italian) brethren when BMW too outlasted the onslaught of the evil twins and fours from the Land of the Rising Sun.

    Only after 1985, when the deed was done, and 1995 when the deed was dead and gone did the Airhead motorcycle riders deem to call themselves "simple by choice". With that I am wont to argue.

    Popeye had it right.

    Looks like we may need some clarification here

    When I read the original post, it sounded like the new forum would be a general forum addressing new and proposed models, etc. However, after reading some other posts, it seems like the new forum would be specific to the new model (e.g. six cylinder).

    So which is it?

    Can the forum administrators please respond.

    Thanks

    Jeff - you are right; the specific purpose is for the newer RT.

    I am/was letting the creative juices flow for the new 6.

    At the end I will seperate them.

    And a different forum for the newer GS? Or will the RT and GS with overhead cam go in the same forum? And where does a person to post when they have a suspension question? Or a windshield question? Or a brake bleed question? If the GS is in a separate forum from the RT, what about the GS ADV? Does it get a separate forum, too?

    The plan is NOT to fragment the forum.

    The new forum would support the new style engine.

    As we do now with the GS/RT/R/ST fall in the Hexhead forum, if they are of that vintage, same will apply with this one.
