Sounds like theres a guy in the picture that's not mentioned who helped her with the construction (aka the person taking the pictures of her)

haha, I was just about to post this. Very very cool and this is on my "want to do badly list" when the kids are grown up and I have some travel time (hopefully I'll still be able to ride decently when I'm in my 50's). I'd just tour the US and CAN - Mount St Anne - VT, NH, ME down to NC over to Austin, obviously CO and UT up to ID - then to BC - Nelson then Whistler - drop down to OR and hit Hood. Not to mention off road spots and snowboard stuff in the winter months...

Nicely done inside of that 109. Looks like it works well and love those lights.

dude - she is German. She most likely has better fabrication skills than you. And probably rides bikes better than me.

I figured everyone would like this. Wow, Horsey hasn't posted on this thread yet. Is he okay?

Dig it as well but if it were me I would find a way to stow my bike without having to turn the bars sideways every night!

I'm impressed. I can't imagine driving a Series more than a few miles and then riding a bike afterwards. She must have a high tolerance for pain.

That is an awesome wood shop. Probably a multi million dollar facility.

Woodshop is probably at her college???? Looking at her marker drawing skills, i'd bet she's in school for product design.

Huge advantage of the 110 wagon, IMHO. It's the ultimate wheeling/camping vehicle. No RTT needed, just sleep in the bed.

Germany has a different system. They actually encourage vocational education. It says that it was here bachelor thesis so I am betting it is some sort of design with a large vocational area to work in. Speaking of which, woodworking without eye protection? A bit dumb.
