He did ride his scooter around the ring just before the end of the nordschleife touristenfahrten session that day.

He did drive his scooter on the 'Ring! Didn't you read the article/blog?


This guy is all of us "squared". I can't imagine doing 18km on a scooter let alone 18K kms!!! This guy is a (scooter)God!

Incredible. I'm about 200 miles from the Ring and even by (my faster )car (and on Autobahn) I still find it a somewhat huge trip....

As I recall my friends and I started the trip at 8:00 AM sundaymorning and got there at 11:00 or something, but that's already years ago.


Cheers
Robin

Takes me about 2 hours or so from Ramstein, Germany. And I agree, it's a day trip for me where if I'm going I'll be sure to stay for a few hours because it's such a "far" trip for me.
