Almost WD-40

I saw this at the supermarket a while ago and was pretty amazed. How does one combat the most popular all purpose lubricant with the uttermost recognizable name in the industry? Well, by trying to copy the success of the name of course. Case and point, CX-80. It does roll off the tip of the…

My Photography

I’ve noticed a trend in my own photo taking, one that continuously veers towards the use of a phone camera rather than my DSLR. Ever since I played around with the awesome camera on a Nokia Lumia 920 I really stopped using my DSLR altogether. But I did find a new use for my Nikon…

Windows Phone

My work issue Samsung Galaxy S3 unexpectedly died just before Christmas. For some odd reason the screen was either really really bright or it didn’t turn on at all. Never dropped, never abused, totally pampered, and display dead. Left without a smartphone I felt a little uneasy which just confirmed my earlier suspicion of being…

Transalping

I probably have a couple more Romania posts to write, but last weekend this happened. Yeah, my Trampie took a hit, and not a small one either. Turns out I should have let go of the throttle when I got to the top of the jump, not actually jump it landing awkwardly with no control…

Beer Cane

I may be getting some back pains, getting my first pair of glasses, and just genuinely getting old, but I will be getting old in style…with my beer cane! ;) Leave it to our German neighbors to come up with greatest gadgets ever! It even has a bicycle bell, you know, in case I want…

Technical Scooters

Wrocław’s University of Technology has continually been ranked among the top most technical schools in Poland. In fact it was ranked the top technical school in 2006 and 2007, this according to Wikipedia. So it makes me really proud to see our scooters patrolling the campus as electric security. I think it was a year…

Wrocław Karting

Wrocław built its 40,000 seat stadium in record time to make the 2012 Euro football championship. A total of 3 matches took place there. A few concerts later the stadium serves as the field for our local soccer team WKS Śląsk and pretty much sits empty the rest of the time. It’s actually pretty infamous…

GOVECS at the Games

Taking part in actively promoting GOVECS electric mobility is a great opportunity to witness the smiles we put on people’s faces when they ride our scooters. People tend to approach us with a certain element of caution not knowing what to expect. “How does it work? Is it on, now? Ohh wow, it’s so quiet.”…

X Games – Pre Show

Today we setup our GOVECS booth and a test track and planned out the next few days at the X Games Munich. It was the first time I saw it here and  wow does it all make a impression. Everything is HUGE! And that’s not just what she said :) It boggles my mind that all this…

X Games Munich

GOVECS will have a pretty big presence at this years first ever X Games in Munich. We’ve got a test track where anyone can try out our electric scooters, all current models, and there’ll be a pretty cool GOVECS photo opportunity as well with a prize for the best photo taken. More on that later,…

Raw Ducati

I spent some time walking the Ducati factory today. The shorthand of this entire write up? I want one! Of course I want a lot of things; a Yamaha T-Max scooter, Honda NC700X motorcycle, BMW GS800, my very own GOVECS GO! Fast electric scooter, so a Ducati would have to get in a long line…

Freeride Motocross, E-MX

KTM Freeride E is a 7.5kW electric motocross bike designed for quiet cross fun. This year, smack in the middle of Zolder Circuit, Clean Week 2020 organisers put together a first ever electric motocross event dubbed E-MX. Some took an issue with the “first ever” monicker, stating that it simply wasn’t a first at all.…

Tesla Fever at Clean Week 2020

Attending the CleanWeek2020 event in Zolder, Belgium you simply couldn’t help but notice the abundance of Tesla Roadsters. Even a couple of Model S made an appearance, but the roadster was to be seen all over the parking lot charging or racing on the track. Now there’s something to be said about Tesla Roadster racing;…

Zolder Circuit – Clean Week 2020

I am currently at the Clean Week 2020 event in Zolder, Belgium. The annual event takes place at the Zolder Formula One circuit built in 1963 and focuses on showing off electric and hybrid vehicles of all types. Today was mostly focused on two wheeled scooters and electric motorcycles alike, but Tesla and a couple…

Karma

Seeing a Fisker Karma in L.A. I probably wouldn’t even whip out my phone to snap a photo. I mean even Bieber has one! But we don’t get too many toys like that in Poland, well, none at all actually, so when I saw this Karma on my current visit to Munich, Germany I had…

My Hero

Friday night. Ohh what a night. Sitting at home, sipping away my Corona with lime, watching a week’s worth of The Daily Show downloads and making my first GoPRO Hero video. Sure I could think of at least one better way of spending my Friday night, but until that person again comes along in my…

Oldtimer Bazar Redux

I did a writeup on Wrocław’s Oldtimer Bazar back in October, but I’m pretty sure it will be a recurring topic as I keep finding cool new stuff every time I attend. The original write up is here: Oldtimer Swap Meet. The most recent show took place a week ago and even though it’s still winter…

Supernexus Fail

Every since I got my work issue Samsung Galaxy SIII I’ve been playing around with new ROM’s. For those that don’t know, a ROM is basically a new software that somehow modifies your Android phone’s original operating system. For instance on my old Galaxy S Plus, Samsung only officially released Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread, but unofficially I was…

My Funmoto

And the winner of my motorcycle conundrum is… Honda FMX 650. Truth be told, I was thinking of giving up on the idea of motorcycle ownership altogether. Somewhere between not knowing what type of a motorcycle I wanted and seeing my savings account actually have some money in it I wondered if a two-wheeler of my own…
