Volvemos! Y nos mudamos!

Buenas txavalería!!

Creiais que estabamos muertos, no? PUES NO!

Estamos vivitos y coleando, y hoy, queridos amigos, os traemos una gran novedad. Como algunos sabéis, parte de la Dirección Ejecutiva de Solobugas se trasladó al cono sur en busca de más y mejores bugas. Y fruto de esa búsqueda nace este nuevo proyecto: The Solobugas Experience. Y una nueva forma de ver los bugas, porque estamos hasta los huevos del blog.

Ahora publicaremos en Tumblr, con unicamente fotos y algún relato de nuestras aventuritas. Pinchad en el link, aquí abajo.

Bueno, eso, nos vemos por ahí. Sed buenos.

Ice Race in St. Georgen/Reith, Lower Austria

Hello Solobugas, hello world !!

On a Sunday morning, freezing cold, the smell of gasoline and the sound of turbo engines was in the air of a small village in Lower Austria. This was reason enough for Solobugas world to take part at the Ice Race in St. Georgen/Reith in Lower Austria!

Due to I was one year together with some spanish gipsies guys I was unfortunately late at the race and I got no interviews with any of the drives. And I also didn’t get the system of the whole race,  but at least I can tell you that almost everything was allowed. The drivers started in several disciplines, there were front wheel, back wheel and 4 wheel drived cars. The most difference in the disciplines was the type of tire which was used: first they started with winter tires, so no spikes on the tires !! This was quite crazy on the track which consistet just from pure ice. Then it went on with small spikes and in the end the long spikes (we call it “Taki” tire) were used.  So actually a lot of drivers started in all disciplines, cause in the brakes they were able to change their tires and drink some beers or hard liquers against the cold .

Some of the cars were also registered and “allowed” to drive on the road. But I am quite sure that this was a quite illegal thing – Solobugas yeaaaaah !!

When I was walking throug the cars I started laughing when I saw this white Renault Clio from the following picture. I thought this guy must be stupid to start with such a cheap gipsy carriage. But when I had a look inside, my eyes couldn’t believe what the see: A LAUGHING GAS INJECTION ! ! Hell Solobugas yeaaaaaaaah! Really great stuff what these guys put into their old bugas, respect ! Another picture of a “sharp” tire and also some motorbikes can be seen, which also drove the ice track.

Those Sundays could happen more often, with the smell of gasoline and the sound of turbo engines in the air…

Stay tuned, yours Ole Markus

Fiesta XR2 vs Ibiza 1.4

B.S.O.              Rosendo “Como el Pico de un Colchón”

Una bochornosa tarde de Septiembre en Burgos D.F. el equipo cazapepinos de Solobugas se dispone a realizar una interesantísima prueba a dos de los vehículos que, en la actualidad, componen el parque móvil de SB. En realidad no se trata de una prueba en sí, sino que básicamente lo que queremos es presentaros a nuestros bugas para que no penseis que viajamos en autobús (que eso es de pijos) o en bici (que eso es de progres).

Objetivo: Dejar clarito que en este blog no nos andamos con chorraditas, tomarnos unas cañas tras la prueba y de paso tirar la tarde.

Pepinos a probar: Un Seat Ibiza 1.4 y un Ford Fiesta XR2

Saludos!

O.S.T.    Rosendo “Como el pico de un Colchón”

A sultry September evening in Burgos D.F. the cucumber-hunters of Solobugas team were prepared to make an interesting test of two of the vehicles that currently make up the fleet of SB. In reality this is not a test in itself, but basically we want to introduce you to our Bugas in order not to think that we travel by bus (like gypsis) or bike (like liberals).

Objective: To clear that in this blog stupid things do not walk with us, take some beers after the test and throw away the afternoon.

Cucumbers Tested: One Seat Ibiza 1.4 and a Ford Fiesta XR2

FORD FIESTA XR2

  • Owner: The Carlis, also called “Linux” (in charge of “material” in SB).
  • Year of manufacture: 1984
  • Engine: 1600 cc / 4 cylinders in line / 2 valves per cylinder / dual body carburetor.
  • Fuel: Gas ( like death) and possibly oil.
  • Power: 96 H.P.
  • Tires: 185/60 R13
  • Current consumption: the tank lasts 250 km, to give you an idea.
  • Extras: original Cassetto Ford; Headlights (currently no used); Scraper for frost; Original tape “Baron al Rojo Vivo “; Back Sticker  of  Disco” Crystal “
  • Possibility to sleep on it: Impossible, even for one person.
  • Possibility to do the Mongol Rally: Not probable, the wheel is very thick and the engine is begger than 1000 cc
  • Others: Smells of oil that kills, white smoke comes out the exhaust (bad sign).

SEAT IBIZA 1.4 “The Machine”

  • Owner: Marcoshc (co-manager of SB).
  • Year of manufacture: 1998
  • Engine: 1400 cc / 4 cylinders in line / 2 valves per cylinder / injection.

Finally we did not do the speed test because the economy is not going so good to make such stupid fuel spending, but our expert eye bugatil drew a clear verdict: Both Bugas are two pieces of cucumbers.

You like it damned?!! So quiet, cos soon will come more and better!

Greetings!

Solobugas World – testing since 2004

Yesss hombres, the next story of  Solobugas World is here for you!!

Still some years ago, me and my Austrian testing crew had the wish to travel to our beloved country of Espana, and we didn’t know at all that this country is housing my Solobugas World partners of the future! We wanted to go with a fantastic buga from the farming fields in Austria to the country in the south, where the tomatoes and the red and green peppers also grow in winter. But WHICH car is able to make this trip was the big question ?  ?  ?

As gypsies none of us had a useful car or money to by one and so we decided to take one from the street (actually from a field where nobody and nothing lived – the car was not owned from anyone FOR SURE) and to repair it. And so the story of our beloved VW Passat B2 began. We called him “the undestroyable tank”, because he was supposed to resist every attack and stress. We reapaired the car at a mountain, where a friend of us lived, and started the trip to the south in the summer of 2004.  Three weeks of travelling, about 6000km and a lot of fun and adventures with the tank were in front of us. Look at this pictures of the hard working (and drinking) hours…

Passat zangeln

The car was built in the year 1982,  so almost the same age we had, and its identification was “Type 32B”. The engine of our wonderful tank was a powerful 1.600 ccm one with 51 kW, 4 zylinders used with gas of course. So it was able to pull us up all the hills between Austria and Spain. Let’s see where our journey brought us:

testing step one - the dry fields in Spain

You can see that it was not always easy with the testing crew. One night we had almost a fight in the car, because we couldn’t find a place to sleep. As gypsies we didn’t want to pay at all for a place so we wanted to stay hidden in the car. But also the Passat was to small for 4 people and two of us (i don’t remember who cause we were so drunk) had to sleep on the street.

But those were just small problems until the real ones started. After we crossed the border to Spain the Passat didn’t work well anymore and we had to visit some car mechanics. But in the end nobody could help us and so we had to drive home to the beloved home country of Austria, with only 3 out of 4 cylinders, with about 12 and more liters of gas consumption for 100 km… In this movie you can see how many exhaust gases the car generated. AND you see on the traffic sign, that it is a real Solobugas testing drive, cause we used the “SB” license plates. But in the end our beloved tank finally brought us home – UNDESTROYABLE (neither by storm and hailstones) ! ! !

After all those stresses and strains my friends were happy to get their other cars at home again and I had the honor to test the car one more year, especially in the hard Austrian winter. The problem with the engine was solved (we had lost one sparking plug in Spain) and in the arctic mountains of Austria me and the car had a good but cold time. The heating of the car didn’t work and I had to drive with an opened window very often because otherwise the front window was full of steam… I survived the winter with and sometimes in the car, but finally i had to sell it, it was too exhausting with no heating 😛

testing step 2 - the arctic sites in Austria

R.I.P. beloved Passat – the undestroyable tank. I am sure you still drive around and some gypsies can count on you!!

The arctic bike – mission satisfied

the final end of the arctic bike ??

the final end of the arctic bike ??

O.S.T.: en gammel sykkel (an old bike)

Hola soy Ole Markus, me presentaré más tarde, pero ahora voy a contaros la historia de la bici artica-solobugas…

Hello, this is Ole Markus! My introduction will follow later, but first I’ll tell you about the final history of the Solobugas arctic bike…

One June night full of daylight, like all of them in Norway now, the beloved Solobugas member Marcoshc and one’s own kind, Barrio, were about to leave soon back to Spain after spending one crazy year reporting for Solobugas in Norway. Because of the just short ago introduced “Solobugas worldwide” they still were in the need of new reporters all over the world, well, let’s start with all over Europe.

Ole Markus, an Austrian gipsy who the couple got to know in Norway, was one stupid guy who always wanted to be a SB member and asked thousand times before to get into the club.

So Barrio and Marcoshc decided to introduce a mission and when Ole Markus will satisfy it he will MAYBE become this member…

The mission was to leave the arctic bike, the main part of the first Solobugas movie, unlocked in the city centre of beloved Trondheim, where this bike has to get a new owner, probably an stupid exchange student who is willing to steal this bike, and so that the story of the bike will go on.

Anyway, the two monkeys had to leave to Spain in the middle of the night and gave the arctic bike to Ole Markus. After one short minute of sadness when Barrio and Marcoshc had to leave the party went on.

Like everywhere in this f*** city, at 2 in the night the clubs throw you out, to prevent you of having fun or maybe dance a little bit or get drunk.

At least in this case the Norwegians found a good way to go on with party and they introduced their “Nachspiels” – which is a stupid German word and means “afterparty”. Ole Markus made his way to one of that, with the arctic bike and Steinar, his dude follower after this year in a prison with two Norwegian flatmates.

They arrived at the Nachspiel place and stayed there as long as they staid(unfortunately the time memory system was already switched off at this time at both of them).

Finally, when it was about to leave cause everyone was not able to spell “Solobugas” in the right order anymore, the couple left. For a strange reason the arctic bike downstairs was locked to some other bikes. “What the f***”, Ole Markus thought but he was not able anymore to climb up the stairs again and tell the stupid madafuckas who the hell locked the holy bike of Marcoshc to another one. God dammit, Ole Markus had to fullfill the mission!!!

Anyway, to drunk to think about the mission, Ole Markus and Steinar had to come home. And those stupid madafuckas locked the arctic bike, but forgot to lock one of their bikes. So Ole Markus just took this one and Steinar and he went home in wiggly lines. After hours they reached their stately home in Moholt and went to bed.

The next day when Ole Markus woke up he checked the bike he took home, if it was a good one he maybe could sell. Finally he saw the typically sticker on it, which should let you know that this is a bike of the student village. Now the bad conscience was preying on his mind and he wanted to solve the problem of the stolen bike soon. It turned out that it was one of his hybbel friends Carlosen, who missed his bike. After some jokes and saying that this happened because of the drunkenness last night the bike was at his right owner and Ole Markus went back to town to pick up the arctic bike, which should hopefully be unlocked now. But NO: it was not there anymore. Someone stole it. Those bastards, who in the world is stealing bikes?!?!

Shit! Disappointed and in bad mood Ole Markus went back to his home, crying and worrying and thinking about how to tell Marcoshc that he didn’t satisfy the mission. How should he ever become a Solobugas member when he was not able to finish the story of the arctic bike…??

So he came back and started to get drunk again in the evening with his friends in the barbeque place of the student village. After some beers and after almost everyone had already made a joke because of Ole Markus and that he stole his friends bike, Ole Markus started to talk with Manni, another friend of him who was also at the party the day before. When they were talking about their way home, Manni told Ole Markus that he first was on the way with Carlosen’s bike which he borrowed from him. But later this bike was stolen (“Haha, sorry baby but this was me” Ole Markus told him) and that he took another one. “An old crappy bike which could not have any owner”. Ole Markus knew that this must have been the arctic bike!! He jumped on Manni’s throat and shouted: “Where is the bike, I have to fullfill the mission!”. And Manni, shocked by this attack and almost not able to breath, countered: “It’s in the city centre, next to burger king. I left it there because I was not able to climb up the mountain to Moholt with this fucking shit without any gears!”.

Ole Markus, assuaged after this notice, kissed Manni and was happy that the mission was fulfilled, because he was so brave and risked almost his life. Barrio and Marcoshc don’t have to know the whole story, the arctic bike has a new owner now or is maybe already in the river, but at least the mission is satisfied and Ole Markus hopefully will be a member of Solobugas world soon …

See you soon on Solobugas, guys !!
