We picked them up this morning at GST Berlin, the local dealership in East-Berlin. Christoph and Marco of GST Berlin gave us the keys and some good advice which we pretty surely won't remember because we were too excited. You cannot see that in the picture above – we're working on that! 

Wooooohoooo!!!

Wooooohoooo!!!

Our first - very short – trip took us to a gas station and then to work...  There were many firsts on this first trip. Starting the engine, for instance. Or setting the indicators. And... accelerating! If only there weren't these inner city speed limits. Anyway. This adventure is starting to feel real. The bikes are here. The bikes! The bikes! The bikes!
