LIFE TIME GEAR | BLOG BREAK

unbelievable: 7 days off! island SYLT again. you can reach this northernmost german island by ship
or by train over a long bank. it is always interesting to go by train and it reminds me the time, when i
was a little boy and went with my parents to sylt. the train was the holiday kick off. i knew that it took
me just about an hour to reach this beautiful island ... for my little son LEVI i think today it will be the
same. i'll be back soon. pics | around the web

1. FC KAISERSLAUTERN vs fc bayern munich | I GOT TICKETS ...

... for the match on the 27th of august. last season we beat'em 2:0. this year the fcb has a really
powerful team - it will be hard for my FCK to win this time the home match versus the hated bayern.
the match is already sold out since weeks. good to know some very good friends in KAISERSLAUTERN!

LIFE TIME GEAR | PRIVATE FAVORITES #24 “BIKE HELMET“

new bike, new helmet. after 3 heavy bike crashes with broken bones the last 10 years and 2 crashed
helmets while race-biking i decided to wear a helmet even when biking in the city. uncool. what to do?
finding the NUTCASE, buying a NUTCASE. great look, perfect fitting, lightweight and SAFE!
they offer a lot of cool and old school designs so that it is not so easy to choose. but i did ...

LIFE TIME GEAR | PRIVATE FAVORITES #23 “BULLIT CARGOBIKE“

24 kg vs. 6 kg. 8 gear shimano vs. 20 gear campagnolo, BROOKS vs PROLOGO, aluminium vs carbon,
15 km/h average speed vs. 25, BULLIT fast cargobike vs. TIME VXRS ... yep, i got my new bike.
and believe me at first it's hard to drive but with every kilometer more you ride you get a lot of fun to
drive with. nose wheel steering is so difficult because of the long distance from the handlebar to the
front tyre. yesterday i picked it up at 20 INCH and in spite of a lot of working i did a 12 km ride to buy
a mobile garage for my BULLIT. while the sun was shining i did a smooth ride and enjoyed meter
per meter. thanks again MARCUS, owner of 20", for best advice and KLAUS for arranging this kind
and competent contact. the smart old school customizing with white sidewall tires, BROOKS saddle and
leather handle bars will follow some more special odds. stay tuned! bad pics | Life Time Gear

THE HEAD CAT | LEMMY, SLIM JIM PHANTOM & DANNY B. WALK THE WALK TALK THE TALK

i missed the release of this damn f***in rockin record on the 21st of june this year. even i did not know
that the trio is still together since they made their first record in 2000; i thought that this was a one record
project. “WALK THE WALK TALK THE TALK“ meanwhile is the third record of LEMMY (motörhead),
SLIM JIM PHANTOM (the stray cats) & DANNY B. (rockats, 13 cats, lonesome spurs). it is short, dirty
and noisy. pure rock'n'roll. i love the voice of LEMMY singing r'n'r songs. damn, they will play only one
show in germany this year: berlin at the 18th of october. pics | found on REVERBNATION.com, myspace THE HEADCAT
