About us, our motorcycles and...
I was born in 1972 in Villingen-Schwenningen, a town in the south of Germany, and there I grew up also.
Since 1992 I worked and lived near Freiburg. At first in "Endingen am Kaiserstuhl" and then, since 1999, in Denzlingen,
10 km north of Freiburg.
I'm a watchmaker by profession, but lastly that was just my second job - at home I had a smallish studio where I repaired
clocks and watches. Regularly I was employed as an assistant in a company for
After travelling luckily I got the same job back!
I've got the licence to ride a motorcycle since 1995. My first bike was a Honda CB 650 C, which unfortunately got a jammed spool shortly after buying.
Altogether I've spent about 100.000 km on a bike before we go out for the trip
around the world, thereof around 300 km off-road.
And at the first off-road opportunity I've overturned and wasn't able to get up again.
Since then I had rather some respect for gravel roads!! Therefore I took an off-road course for not taking always a bath in the mud… ;-)
I've tinkered quite a long time with the idea of getting on a really big trip with the bike. Best time in year is for me,
when taking our motorbikes, tent and sleeping bag and just ride straight on!
I'm glad that we smoothed out all arguments against it and
just did it:
A Trip Around The World!
