Typical German over regulation in Germany and Austria




The little Chinese engines for these bikes are all forbidden by law to drive with.

German police got a German in Northern Germany driving a Dutch made

Motorbike „Spartamet“. He was fined 420 Euros !! Crazy!!:X3:

The Spartamet is completely the same as my Saxonette but only 5 km/hr

faster.
For those of you who understand German, here's a good news source: www.auf1.tv

Yeah, why even bother putting an Engine on the bike. LOL
Remember fellas, maximum speed is 20kmh. That is somewhere around 12 to 13mph off the top of my head. A 30cc can easily achieve those speeds. So can most out of shape cyclists putting in a little effort.
