How's about this guy?! he created the German cartoon films Werner, and i think he has designed two or three bikes and made them, but this was a cartoon that he made into reality. plus he is from Hamburg! good old Hamburg! http://bikearama.com/blog/chainsaw-motorbike/

I miss going to the races, the vids can't give a true impression, feeling the sound of the motors in your chest,

and no smell, burning rubber, and the fuel, petrol, oil smells ahhh.....

Same as that...I used to go to the Pod and Camberly regularly, but it's years now since I last went. Keep promising myself I'll go this year...and this year turns into next year...ad infinitum.

One day...

I still remember the commentator's words before they started the AA fuellers at Blackbushe - "Do not adjust your mind - there is a fault in reality".
