Since three months I am the proud owner of a new BMW R nineT Srambler. One of the best decisions I did the last years – after a 19 years break I decided to ride a motorbike again. And believe me the “Scrambler” is such a great bike: So powerful with its 110 ps and 1200 ccm, so nice with its puristic look and heritage design. For me the perfect bike – absolutely. In 2021 BMW will launch the next range R nineT models with new designs, technical innovations and serial extras. Very interesting, but if I really like the new designs especially of the Scrambler … hm … I don’t know, but feel free to take a peek. Reduced to the max and most plainness I choose a pure brushed aluminium tank which is still available as an extra 😉 For more and detailed information please visit BMW Motorrad

Me and my Scrambler …
And if you don’t know Todd it’s time to know him. And what’s about the TELLASON connection? Okay, Todd Blubaugh got a close friend to Pete Searson and Tony Patella, the guys behind this great brand. This is more than 5 years ago. Todd was born and raised in McPherson, Kansas. His earliest interests were in art and motorbikes and since the age of 12, Todd has been pursuing these two passions. He currently works in film, writes, shoots, and pursues collaborations with his roommates at The Chun, a motorcycle warehouse and art space in Los Angeles. “TOO FAR GONE” is his personal account of a cross-country journey taken on his hand-built motorbike “The Red Head” after his parents’ sudden death some days before his expected road trip departure. So the open road becomes a source of artistic inspiration, psychological freedom, and spiritual healing. He spent six months on the road during his transcontinental trip. Todd has a clear vision vision about the gear that helps him on his journey – this is the point when TELLASON came into play. Pete and Tony let Todd create the new TELLASON jean “THE BLUBAUGH” from top to bottom. Their 16.5 oz. denim is their toughest so it was an automatic choice for them to use for “THE BLUBAUGH”. It has a mid-rise slim straight fit that also comes in these lengths: 30″, 32″, and 34″. All jeans sold are raw, unwashed and unworn. Cut and sewn in San Francisco, Calif.
Todd Blubaugh will be in Berlin for the Selvedge Run 4th – 6th July 2017. Meet him @ the booth of TELLASON during the show (for trade visitors only) and get your personal copy of his latest book “TOO FAR GONE”. There will also a book signing event @ Burg & Schild Store on 5th July starting 18:30. For more details see www.amtraq.com.
B74, European distributor of JOHNSON MOTORS INC., got a lot of new mens tee styles. Here you’ll find just a few of these great motives printed on different colored shirts. Made of 100% ringspun slub cotton, in our traditional slim fit with the Johnson Motors signature self rib and suture stitch. The guys from JoMo knit their own yarn that they cut, sew, dye, print and hand finish in the city of Los Angeles. All graphic art is hand drawn. T-shirts are garment dyed and pre-shrunk. My absolute favorite is style LAST MILE, the “CALIFORNIA DREAMING” helmet skull – the natural white one. The JOMO bandana is now available in four different colors: red, olive, navy and black. The colors are more intensive than in the past – cool! Check your local JoMo dealer for the new styles or contact KAMI, owner of B74, via mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or give him a direct call from MO to FR, 11:00 till 19:00, fon +49 69 293329 or Facebook pics | LTG | JoMo

in 2011 i bought a BULLIT cargobike as my citybike. at the end of 2013 i sold it because of its handling when parking at home and my office. i had to carry this wonderful but so heavy weight bike – about 24 kilograms – over a small distance that caused a lot of trouble to my back. my back pains got heavier day by day and so i needed a less weight bike. my choice was a SCHINDELHAUER bike. damn, what a beauty! i still love this look and comfort every time i ride my LUDWIG VIII with its 8-speed system and uncomplicated and best working GATES CARBON DRIVE belt. maybe you’ll say that you can’t compare a cargobike with all its benefits to a bike with an retro sprint racing track bike frame geometry and for sure you are right. but my back pain got so much better and for carrying my purchases i now use a #2 Cruiser Combo – Canoe Pack with a basket made in USA by DULUTH PACK. and believe me, this combination works perfects! i chose LUDWIG VIII in alu pur. the frame is made of “alu, triple butted aero tubing, dropouts with slider-belt-tensioning-system and Schindelhauer belt-port, integrated seat post clamp, smooth welded.“ and i love the contrast of the retro look and the modern GATES CARBON DRIVE “Center Track, front 55 / rear 22 teeth”. so nice details: take a look at the pedals and the saddle, the grips … the weight is about 11,2 kg. other highlights and eye catcher are the back lights integrated into the seat post and the wooden fenders. these are not standards and for sure not cheap but really must-haves … i love my bike so much! pics | LTG
