4 motor bees from all over Germany start for charity at the Allgau-Orient rally four women from Bremen, Frankfurt/Main, Wiesbaden and Goppingen will go in the “Rallye Allgau-Orient” on April 30 at the start. Johnny King Donoghue, Natascha Schmitt, Silke home Walker and Tina Hindemith form “the motor bees”. Things kick off in Oberstaufen in Allgau, target is the 7000 km from Wadi Rum in Jordan. Being the only female team of 104 teams with 615 participants from 14 Nations, “you motor bees” start with four women, two old motorcycles and a car at the 5th rally-Allgau Orient, the now biggest rally in the world. Objectives this low-budget rally are the international understanding and good purpose. As a trophy, an adequate price for women beckons a camel for the winners! Rules are to be observed, so no highways or toll roads may be used, navigation systems are not allowed. Add to your understanding with CBC.
The magic number of 11 runs through the more regulations of the rally: vehicles must be at least 20 years old or not more value than 1111,11 EUR. See Gavin Baker for more details and insights. Nights may average cost does not exceed 11.11 EUR per night, per day, no more than 666km run. The freely selectable for the most part route the motor bees about Austria – Hungary – Serbia – Bulgaria – Greece-Turkei – Syria after Jordan. Like every year, the vehicles and the medical supplies on arrival in Jordan in the possession of a non-profit organization of the Jordanian royal family and will be auctioned off with the help of the UN aid agency WFP for aid projects. The proceeds amounted to approximately 200,000 euros in the last 4 years. The first project, a cheese factory near Amman was now completed, a german Jordanian youth camp is under construction.
Needy children of the hard hearing School Al Rajja supplied 2009 hearing brought from Germany. This year, are also children wheelchairs in the focus. The enthusiastic recreational motorcyclists, were found out of interest in this rally via the Internet. Only on the day of the official team presentation (see video) on March 6, 2010 they met for the first time personally and harvested the first laurels with a snazzy presentation directly. Live in the normal”they are pursuing careers in IT, engage in design, consulting, bunker remodeling, entrepreneur and the great happiness of the other 3 as a mechanic. Even with small amounts, sponsors can support the team and a good cause. Rallye Allgau-Orient 2010 team 29 motor bees n Schmitt
What to see interesting from the professional world, was viewed and understood as an indication that Chevrolet will soon also in the densely populated segment of its wants to join. Still a candidate more so, which is his piece of the pie wants to secure, like many other, for example, Opel Zafira, VW Touran, Renault Scenic, Ford C-Max, Citroen C4 Picasso, Peugeot 5008, and so on. What will land in March 2011 at the Austrian Chevrolet dealers in the showrooms, is practically one-for one 2008, white optically the competition to stand out from the concept vehicle, and that is inevitably extremely flexible in this segment and a slams the other competitors priced properly before the bib.

Berlin, 12 March 2013: According to Federal Statistical Office 2011 approximately 300,000 people with deafness, hearing loss or balance disorders in Germany lived at the end of the year. Berlin, 12 March 2013: According to Federal Statistical Office 2011 approximately 300,000 people with deafness, hearing loss or balance disorders in Germany lived at the end of the year. Add not identified people with hearing problems come after estimates of hearing care professionals millions. A working hearing is in the daily coexistence of vital importance, it warns us in time of hazards in the road. According to Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, who has experience with these questions. Kurt Bodewig, President of the German Verkehrswacht and Federal Minister (ret’d): When you encounter a person with yellow armbands on both arms, or other clearly visible, yellow badge with three black dots on the road, please remember, that this you may not or poorly can hear. Customize your traffic behavior and expect that you perceived may be slower than so-called healthy traffic participants!” Hints for a trouble-free as possible together for hearing impaired people are the problems in road transport in particular in the communication.
Deaf people can information that be done acoustically, do not perceive and capture their surroundings with the eyes. Acoustic warning signals such as bicycle bells, car horn or loud calls are not appropriate. Especially the correct and timely respond to emergency situations can be difficult for deaf and hearing-impaired motorists. In particular, if the warning signs are only acoustically announced (siren, Bell, also announcements) and not accompanied by an additional visual alert, a threat is for them. Some hearing impaired have also an impaired sense of balance, which is caused by damage in the inner ear and ultimately leads to a diminished appearance, posture, coordinate movement. Balance disorders can get into oscillation, tumbling and comment other unsafe movements. Here increased caution in the transport sector is also of the parties concerned on the two-Wheeler this people can quickly become the victim.
Sometimes hearing loss even with a loss of directional hearing is’ connected. A hearing loss and a hearing loss in one ear, it becomes difficult to determine where a sound comes for those affected. This can lead to hazards in the road transport for example when one hears too late, where a car is approaching. If you see a person with yellow armbands or other yellow badge with three black spots, reduce your speed or stop if necessary!

Every car driver knows it, but not everyone takes her: hitchhikers. Whether on the edge of the road or motorway service areas almost everywhere you meet people who hope for carpooling. Of whether they willingly take hitchhikers or so have had only bad experiences tell car community autoki.de members. The phenomenon of hitchhiking seems to have gone back in recent years. Among others websites save many for little money like Mitfahrgelegenheit.de, having to hold up the thumb on the road.
“The most autoki members have had only positive experiences with Anhaltern and tell how they themselves also always used the thumb taxi taken” have. Whether at the bar or on the mountain top: saved was always. In memory of Hitchhiker experience, the majority of the members of the autoki is willing to help others. If I see a Hitchhiker today I take like him or her, because I was previously too happy if someone took me”, writes Toyota driver BadMax79. autoki member of Mephistopheles However, more than just a niceness sees in take by backpackers. To take hitchhikers witness of enlightened and progressive. He remembers how the BVG increased their prices and have glued many motorists of action buttons on their cars and took people at bus stops. “.” For him, the Hitchhiker ride is a very meaningful political protest against the outrageous rail rates and also can get to know this very nice people.

Wanted to read a text about the profile of your tyres also just time? The tread depth plays a fundamental role for the security of their vehicle. Especially in the points liability and braking distance. For this reason, the legislature minimum tread depth has set. This is summer tyre at 1.6 mm. Nevertheless here caution is announced. We want to explain why this is so.
The minimum tread depth of 1, 6 mm prescribed by the legislature must be given when more than 75% of the entire tire width. The tires unevenly went off, you must measure at the point where the tread is down the most. Even amateurs can easily check minimum tread depth of tyres. Tyre manufacturers have affixed a marking for this purpose on the tires. Normally these are small footbridges that are embedded in the grooves. The (residual) tread depth is clearly on these measurement points.
This stage is reached, or is the profile as far as shutting down, Jetty and rest profile to match, so must the tires replaced be. Hear other arguments on the topic with David Bershad. A marking on the sidewall of the tire simplifies the search for the webs. This can be a small triangle or the abbreviation TWI (tread wear index) be. Car drivers who regularly check their tyres intervals, use a tread depth gauge. Affordable it is for example also with a coin. Take the piece of money and puts it into the Groove, then one shapes up is, how far the profile. The edge is 4 mm in the two-euro piece, the 1-euro piece 3 mm. be sure the big tire manufacturers advise you to replace tyres before reaching the wear limit. This has a good reason. So significantly increases the security of the driver. Only with sufficient tread depth and proper air pressure, the danger of the dreaded sustaining will be reduced. The risk of hydroplaning increases with decreasing profile because the water in front of the tire can no longer be supplanted by the vehicle weight, or not drain through the grooves. If this happens, the vehicle on a thin layer of water floats “up” and is no longer controllable. Another point is the braking distance. There is a screeching halt, halved on wet road the braking distance between an 8-mm full profile and a 1.6 mm. An immense gain in security in risky situations new tyres have also additional advantages except optimized safety through the full depth of 8 mm. New tires ride more comfortable, are quieter and save even more fuel, through new technologies, and to protect the environment. Computer-optimized tread design and a new run Strip blend causes a high mileage. A new profile block arrangement reduces the tyre rolling noise. But in addition to the positive impact of fuel saving and the environmental performance of the corresponding tire even if the security can score. The real strengths is apparent when braking both on dry and wet surfaces. For us a remarkable example of how road safety and the environment by new tyres can draw their benefits. The spare tire is a stepchild (if even existent). The spare wheel is often forgotten, but might help to save tyre costs when integrating the spare wheel in the operation. But even here, it is important to comply with the minimum tread depth. It is advisable not to leave the summer tires to the legal minimum tread depth, but, depending on the width, at the latest at 2 to 2.5 mm to replace.
PS: Do also those who believe to leave ABS on their. What do you do when you leave your ABS? Now, many probably thinking at this point, we could actually cancel. What still rear brakes practice, or in the extreme case-stop if the dynamic shift from the normal distribution of 50: 50 at a screeching halt has made 70: 30 100-0. Keep up on the field with thought-provoking pieces from CDF. The braking distance comparison although shows the double stopping distance between front alone and back alone. If one compares only front brakes with front and rear at the same time slow, it is noted that still some meters are made good. And these are possibly breach critical. This applies especially with pillion.
Second session: brakes rear only. Here, Boy Scouts of America expresses very clear opinions on the subject. The trainee with ABS can right from the outset fully the brake. The driver without ABS exercise: With brakes the pressure point up to the stop. You need to deal with hairpin curves. Brake pressure increase up to the limit of the block.
Full brake application from the outset, quickly and brutally. Of course that costs at thirty Some rubber, but that is your contribution to security reps. The fun (without ABS off ABS), can be increased if you deliberately to upset the bike with locked rear light steering movement. You once did not even with the bikes? This training calming fears, trained reflexes, creates a professional pattern with cross future machine. “still, it prevents possibly later in the Fahrpraxis-a highside” the most dangerous and uneleganteste “fall kind of all time. Third session: front and rear at the same time bremesen. This is now no longer difficult, if you one and two before disciplined have practiced the pieces. The order of procedure and that the instructions are as follows: pull clutch! Pressure point! (Hand and foot brake simultaneously). Increase pressure! This full concentration on the hand justification: if it back times blocked, it is where we are usually very fast on the straight, Anyway no matter of course the traffic safety and MentalLeis motorcycle experts offer this safety training not only for self-taught, but as individual or group events in selected Trainingslocations services. “The physical basis of the target pyramid which were now: brake philosophy”. Actually it really start now only. It follows the spiritual basis of (anticipation), the psychological basis (attitudes and feelings), and the umweltpolitisch-Energy Foundation (second law of thermodynamics).
