Find gold nuggets. That’s our job. The good stories are not on the street, but under a lot of rubble, rubble, earth. And then it’s seven. It starts with the selection of the topic and continues with the implementation.
Desert near Hamburg?
For our cover story we were looking for a desert-like environment and found it 60 kilometers east of Hamburg. The test crew had not expected so much gravel and so deep sand. Jana (27), who has 2679 followers on Instagram as “Dirtymotojay” and supported the photo production, reached her driving limits, we our logistical ones. The stress was worth it.
We followed the trail of the stones with our report for the “Extreme Bike” section. Crossing underground in a mine on electric trials machines is an experience that the two authors will not soon forget.
The return of the misunderstood BMW C1?
Dig for stories and know where the treasures lie dormant. This requires journalistic workers who are both hands-on and creative. Photographer Olaf Tamm always finds the right perspective, even under difficult conditions. This can be seen, for example, in the story about the Kawasaki collector with his seven Z models.
Special find: a Zündapp GTS 50
A special kind of boulder was brought to light for the special section “Classic Special”: a 1979 Zündapp GTS 50. The teenager’s dream stood forgotten in a shed. We woke the Zündi from its slumber and made it ready to drive. Now its owner rattles two-stroke towards the first warm rays of sunshine, enjoys his spring fever and can hardly save himself from the thumbs-up expressions. The team at AUTO BILD MOTORCYCLE.
