Hello from Surrey

Postby stoutgoose » Fri Dec 17, 2021 1:58 pm

Hello all. I have only just discovered this site, so it’s nice to know there’s a good following in the UK. Although not new to airheads (I’ve previously owned two R60/5’s and an R65) I have recently come back to airhead ownership with a very pretty R75/5 that I bought from the US earlier this year.

It was sold as a non-runner that had been in storage since the late-80’s, but after a little fettling, came back to life with little more than some cylinder head work and a carb rebuild.

Are there any regular meetings in the Woking/Guildford area?

Hi and welcome from Chilworth so very close, where abouts in Surrey are you?
There are no regular BMW meets that I know of however I am Secretary of the Dorking and District MC Club and we have (Covid permitting) regular rides basically on whatever you bring from 1928 sunbeam to brand new GS and everything between.

Hi Stoutgoose. Welcome, Only new here myself. Woking has a special place in my heart, its where I set off for my first ride on my 16th birthday on my Francis Barnett 197 happy memories from over half a century ago.
