Like your film on the “Twelve Gauge Garage”, you’ve made a great emotional connection between the viewer and the subject matter, whether its on four wheels, two wheels or the environment it may reside in. I find it amazing how the story-telling techniques applied bring about such a sense of peace and enjoyment. Keep up the good work.

You’ve done it again, Petrolicious. Great story and great photography, but importantly interesting people and a really cool bike.

Love the flat twin sound. Keep ’em coming!

Just wonderful… the crew at Petrolicous should be nominated for a short-story Oscar, already… no joke… Kurt

As a former owner of multiple AIRHEAD BMW’s I really appreciate this story and video.
Not sure if i will ever be able to ride again , but rest assured that if I can,
it will be on a BMW Airhead .
An R60 is out of my price point , but other sweet Airhead’s are on my radar.

One of the best yet. And I don’t ride. Father and son. (Oh, and the Piper Mirage is impressive. Hey, they’re the one’s that put it in the video- like it wasn’t going to be noticed? Ha!)

Really cool. Love those old Beemers. A wonderful story, too – it’s such a feel good story when an object really becomes truly a part of the family.
I also note that I’m so interested in all the bikes in the background, too, a pile of GSX-Rs and is that VF1000R? I always loved those early race replicas.

This is beautifully put together! This is a touching story because most of us had that dad-son bond over a common interest.
Flat twins, especially the ones of that time, have, indeed, a unique vibe and taking a ride astride one is truly a gift. You never get bored of it!
