When you first look at the BMW C Evolution, you might think lots of things, but generally, a long-distance road trip isn’t the first thought. That wasn’t the case for Reimar Hellwig who decided to take this emission-free and quiet bike on a six-week journey. The 76-year-old made a breathtaking ride through France and Spain while astonishing onlookers everywhere he traveled. He showed the world what a truly adventurous spirit looks like.
The biggest thing Hellwig had to think out was where to charge his electric BMW. With careful planning, he was able to keep the motorcycle on the road. In Spain, most charging stations cost money and he didn’t feel they were technologically advanced, so Hellwig got creative. He visited BMW dealerships, gas stations, restaurants and workshops and asked for a charge from regular outlets, when possible.
Everyone he met along the way was impressed and inspired by his passion. After reading his story, it’s possible that there’s an adventure just like this waiting for you. The question is – are you ready to take it?
