South Dakota tech and social weekend

You are invited to Jeff Ecker's house in Hot Springs, South Dakota for the weekend.  Ride, wrench or socialize as there is plenty of room at this big old house.  There are several beds or camp in my lovely yard.  I believe that good food is important so I will be preparing some meals.  There is no charge for this event.  Matt Parkhouse has offered to come and help you with your mechanical problems.  His wife (Suzanna) will help you with your marriage problems.  Jeff Ecker at 605-890-2615  or This email address is being protected from spambots.

History and Founders

- The Airheads Beemer Club was founded in 1991 by B. Jan Hofman (#1) and Al Watson (#2.)
- B. Jan produced the first copy of "Airmail," our club newsletter, in December of 1991, and he continues to be the editor today.
- The term "airhead," as it relates to BMW motorcycles, was coined by Al, and the term "oilhead," as used by the International Oilheads Club, was coined by B. Jan. These terms have entered the motojournalist lexicon.
- Our slogan, "Simple by Choice" was created by Ron Jensen.
- The club logo was designed by Jan except for the smile, which was the idea of Carolyn Laronche.
- Our first rally was the Feb. 1993 Death Valley Rendezvous initiated, planned, and executed by Fred Kumm #117.
- Our original website was conceived and created by Mike Leonard.
- The ABC continues to thrive thanks to the talents and selfless dedication of its volunteers.
