A new bike and much more

April 29, 2012

A lot has happened again in the past two weeks since my book reading at the Moto Shop in South San Francisco. Also, the first introduction of the To Drink the Wild Air music video let the world go  (somewhat) “wild” and our You Tube links went truly hot for a little while there in cyberspace.

For anyone who missed it  the first time around  Sassy Kool and Birgit Soyka

We all know how the world works nowadays and what networking and spreading the word can do and so the video also found enthusiastic attention in Germany. As a result I have received an E-mail from a friend establishing contact to a famous racing team.  This is not just any race team  but a team dedicated to  win  the “e-power championship” series  (organized by  the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme)  of electrical motorbikes, a world series championship only existing  since 2010. Hence the  revolution of electric bikes and its ability to compete for our attention in the future.  What is being tested on the race track today will be stock production tomorrow, therefore all the racing activities out there have some research and development aspects to consider. It seems that the e-bike series is also the series where most female riders can be found. One of the most famous female road racers was Katja Poensgen who competed fairly successful in the GP 250 scene in the year 2001. Now she was spotted as a new team member of the Münch racing team competing again on an electric bike.

The Moto GP in Laguna Seca, California is around the corner, an event featuring the best of the best in motorcycle racing. The event is scheduled from July 27 to July 29 2012. It also will feature the e-bike series. I was invited to meet the  German Münch racing team and its members.  I am looking very much forward to it in order to get one step closer to see the racing action of the e-bike scene from the first row seat.

But this was only half of the news. The other earthshattering event of last week was that I went out and got a brand new motorcycle to experience the sharp technology of 2012. I skipped 18 years of  technical motorcycle development but now I’ve got one of those beasts and even though it “only” is a 600 cc engine this Suzuki GSX-R 600 is a rocket ship. I am quiet happy with the purchase and will enjoy every single mile on in.  Here are some pics when I picked it up from the dealership this weekend.


New You Tube book trailer

November 2, 2011

Here I am again.    As I said – sometimes there is too much stuff and not enough time. Happens to me lately more than I am willing to admit.

But anyway – as I had posted earlier, on November 4  the book “To Drink the Wild Air” will be introduced by the Lit Chick Show hosted by Sylvia Massara. Here is the link:

The intros newest components is a new video book trailer, public in You Tube as of today, called

To Drink The Wild Air Part II

The clip incorporates the feeling and the motion of my current mindset and determination to change my life around to something I can enjoy for the next 20 years or so.  I had a pretty good run so far but now breaking into my second half of life a lot of things are changing. Physically, spiritually and mentally. All three combined have incredible power to throw these unexpected curveballs because body mind and soul are just not familiar with the challenges and have to adapt and re-learn. It’s just like when we grow up. Life always presents changes and transitions but in some parts in the course of a lifetime they are more defined and difficult and it can be that one’s whole life philosophy has to change and adapt simultaneously. All these changes need an open mind and even more courage than in the earlier years because time has turned into a fierce competitor and our physical body also rebels with some of the activities I have considered as normal for many years. Every day is a new challenge but is also exciting when keeping the final goal in mind.

Long live life and what we make out of it!
