Luke in Germany

Post by liveforphysics » Aug 21 2011 7:23am

I'm in Germany. Racing and testing some electric motorcycle mods.

These guys play hard. They aren't safety ninnys either. Autobahn is awesome.

Right now I'm chilling trying to recover after 4 x 20min karting sessions and electric supermoto.

I've been here 3 days. My hands are blistered, my sides, legs and back is brusied. I have a bit less blood than I arrived with, and I can't stop smiling and can't wait to get more!

I like it here.

Luke, since you are rubbing elbows with the cutting edge crowd...what the latest trends in E-motorcycles? What voltages are the big boys running? Anyone with two motors? Anyone with 2-speed/3-speed transmissions?

Lol. :-)

I'm off to Switzerland today via rs6 on the Autobahn. :-)

All the cars here make me miss my civic in the twistys, and anytime I'm accelerating, but they do a good job at the sustained >260kmh pace on the Autobahn.

I invited my host family back to my place in the states anytime they want to come and we will have a rematch in karts on my home kart track with my home karts. :-) I couldn't believe this guys 150lbs son was able to lap 2sec faster than me on their home track (I expected to easily win even with my 70lbs weight disadvantage). These guys are well practiced and take it seriously. We blew over a grand karting in a single day. They want to come see a supercross event here in the states, so it should work out well.

It seems like most people here are ignorant retards (like the states), but I gotta admit this place does have its tallent here and there. This guy and his sons are excellent racers, engineers, and constructors who definately get it.

That's what they have been telling me here as well. Evidently the previous week was rainy and cold, this week has been roughly exactly like California's weather, nicely warm and dry. :-)

I have been enjoying your Swiss chocolate while I've been in Germany, it will be fun to see the source. :-)

LOL he can try the "leicht weißbier" or any "alkoholfrei" brew... but really... the -OH is quite important for the effect ^^
