To overcome the weather-problem of the bikes it is time to get a roof
possible at any time.
I know a old man here in Ludwigsburg who has developed a short distance
car for two people sitting one behind the other.

There is a new drive instead the common crank mechanism in place.
This gay is looking for assistance to save his ideas for next generations!

I've used both types. I LOVED the Thule Raider, which mounted onto the spare wheel of my old 4wd. The only thing that I'd complain about was that the knobs for fixing the arms of the carrier came off the bolt. Not a big problem, just use a 10mm spanner to tighten the bolt.

BMW fans will remember the BMW C1 from the 1990's; an interesting and unique scooter with a cover that did not require a helmet for the rider.

About 10,000 C1's were manufactured by BMW from 1992 to 2002 and sold in Europe. Some European countries allowed owners to ride the C1 without a helmet, but the UK government would not allow this, which hurt C1 sales in what was expected to be its largest market.

The C1 was ahead of its time, but it's good to see that BMW has not given up on the concept. A press release from BMW dated October 6, 2009, indicates that the idea is still alive and well, and it may be an answer for modern intra-city transportation. An edited version of the press release follows.how to kiss Thanks guys and best Regards
