Hi folks,

long time ago i told u what's going on in my life................ always the same question: where to start?

Best is i tell u what's the main thing in my mind at the moment. I am having a baby ;o) already in the next 3 weeks i will be a mummy!! We are very happy.... It wasn't planed - just happened- but the moment couldn't be better. All my life i wanted to have 1,2 or 3 kids ;o)

4 weeks ago i was at the first World Superbike round in Qatar/Arabia.The whole weekend was fantastic. Me and my dad an a few Suzuki dealers were invited by the team Suzuki Alstare Corona Extra. They start in the SBK this season with the pilots Troy Corser and Yukio Kagayama.

Alstare Corona Extra is a friend and a sponsor of mine since many years and so we were more than happy that the team gained a double victory in the first race!!! It was quite exciting - during the race they had to stop because it started to rain- but the rest of the sbk field wasn't able to stop Troy and Yukio to win.

Qatar is the track in the dessert and usually it doesn't rain there. They have got 2 rainy days a year and these 2 days were just at this weekend ;o)

U know that i worked last year for RTL Channel, we showed Moto GP on TV. The boss decided not to keep on showing the best bike racers of the world in his programm. It's a pitty that we had only a one years chance to show how exciting this sport is... but nobody asks me ;o)

Time never stops and always a door opens.... I will tell ya soon what's going on.....

Take care while riding bikes,
