Out there… with the CRAZIES

Yesterday I went out with the “crazies”… Martin asked me to come along for a scouting mission – to connect a few trails in a new area. And sometimes they bring me along as a guinea pig, to see  how “less skilled” riders do on their new lines. I am a Bronze class rider at […]

Three months update (ca. 1000km) on my first e-mtb

It took FOREVER for me to flip the switch and decide on my first e-mtb: Over a year – of more or less frustrating research and testing had passed (more here) – until I finally found what I was looking for. I decided for the Haibike “Dwnhll 9.0”. Haibike, is a brand that had never […]

I was robbed of my dream of of a GT free life

Wow… I notice lots of heated discussions, anger, hate… about the climate, about a protesting child (GT) and about our world being a terrible place…. Maybe some of those angry people should go outside from time to time and enjoy the nature you are protesting for – or a sunset – believe it or not: […]

Attitude changes @ Boeing…?

This week’s developments in the Boeing crisis: Weak crisis management at Boeing showed in the lack of transparency and empathy, but more importantly, the publicly communicated strategy of trying to fix the 737 issues with “software” patches. What airlines and passengers were hoping to see, were sincere efforts to make the 737 Max safe, actual […]

Boeing… Boing Boing

After the earnings announcement this week, experts estimate that the 737 Max crisis has cost Boeing about a billion USD. Is that a “fair price to pay” for 346 lives lost and the arrogance and lack of empathy for the victims? Especially since the 2nd crash could have been avoided – if the first one […]

Notre Dame

Starting a new thread on the topic of the recent Notre Dame fire – there are some interesting observations in the aftermath of the catastrophe… News are feeding of bad things: catastrophes, crashes, violence, etc. Seldom enough there is some hope or a positive grain in the news – a positive element or outcome in […]

Command & Conquer – Countdown for “Remastered” high res release

I have been a huge “C&C” fan. With friends we used to spend endless nights fighting epic battles. We mostly used our office network (and computers…) or met in dedicated “internet cafés” – that differentiated themselves with networked gaming hardware and where 99 percent of the customers were playing c&c (while smoking cigarettes or eating […]

First street-legal e-scooter in Germany

Looks like the first street-legal e-scooter just made it’s appearance in Germany… (20km/h, insurance sticker, age minimum 15, “moped” driver license required, helmet not mandatory…) A promising concept, but probaly not a game changer at EUR 2000. Respect for the initiative, well done, Metz. #escooter #micromobility #metz
