GOVECS Charging

This week marked the first time ever I charged my electric scooter outside of home or work. This actually seems strange to write but made me think and wonder about the usage of my scooter. Until now, I charged my scooter at home or work, went out for a city trip and charged back up…

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…

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 ūüôā 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…

Picnicking Around

My company threw a picnic today as a small token of appreciation to its staff for working long hours, weekends, and some holidays in recent months to meet our company goals, and overall to thank everyone for simply making best damn electric scooters, period! The weather held up and it was a beautiful Friday afternoon…

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…

Maya

Today I got a chance to meet Maja [Maya] WŇāoszczowska, a world champion in cross-country mountain biking. She also happens to be a high school friend of my coworker Damian who asked her to stop by for a quick poster signing session. A few of us took a photo with Maja, naturally I provided a…

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 WrocŇāaw’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…

EICMA – Pure Cycling Heaven

EICMA stands for¬†Esposizione¬†Internazionale¬†Ciclo¬†Motociclo e¬†Accessori, but to every non-Italian speaker it quite simply means¬†Milan’s Motorcycle Show. It is the biggest motorcycle show in the world and every year it is the place to be if you’re a motorcycle manufacturer or simply a cycling enthusiast. This year marked ¬†EICMA’s 70th show, and my very first one. To…
