I'm busy doing a new project which you will hear of in about 2 to 3 weeks. Large orders come in large boxes. The thing is, I have a small car.</p> <p><a href="http://xl-network.com/sites/xl-network.com/files/imagecache/full/images/Big%20box%20vs%20Small%20car%20%28compare%20length%29.jpg" title="Big box vs Small car (compare length)"><img src="http://xl-network.com/sites/xl-network.com/files/imagecache/large/images/Big%20box%20vs%20Small%20car%20%28compare%20length%29.jpg" alt="Big box vs Small car (compare length)" class="lightbox" /></a></p> <p><a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2013/03/big-box" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://xl-network.com/blog/2013/03/big-box#comments Car Gadgets Photo's Fri, 22 Mar 2013 17:29:44 +0000 XL-Network 1467 at http://xl-network.com Beetle Rally http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/09/beetle-rally <p>Last Saturday we went to House Singraven in Denekamp for a Beetle Rally. My middle brother is getting married this Friday and since he 's crazy about VW Beetles we thought this would be a nice idea for a bachelor party. A fun, but also long day that we ended together with the ladies (who where having their own scholar party with the bride to be) at a BBQ at our parents house.</p> <p> <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://picasaweb.google.com/s/c/bin/slideshow.swf" width="520" height="347" flashvars="host=picasaweb.google.com&captions=1&noautoplay=1&hl=en_US&feat=flashalbum&RGB=0x000000&feed=http%3A%2F%2Fpicasaweb.google.com%2Fdata%2Ffeed%2Fapi%2Fuser%2F111358644722737176339%2Falbumid%2F5791995361679588641%3Falt%3Drss%26kind%3Dphoto%26hl%3Den_US" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed></p> <p><a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/09/beetle-rally" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://xl-network.com/blog/2012/09/beetle-rally#comments Car Family Party Photo's Tue, 25 Sep 2012 15:45:17 +0000 XL-Network 1419 at http://xl-network.com To the Drive-In http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/10/to-the-drive-in <p>This week I received a email from a fellow theater sports member that they put up a big screen at the old sugar factory to show two movies. On Friday night (tonight) they showed <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0780504/" title="IMDb: Drive (2011)">Drive</a> and Saturday evening it was <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077631/" title="IMDb: Grease (1978)">Grease</a>'s turn. Since it's not very pleasant to watch a movie by myself I asked if someone would join me, and they did. Bernd, another fellow theater sports member, 'volunteered' yesterday.</p> <p><a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/10/to-the-drive-in" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/10/to-the-drive-in#comments Car Movie Photo's Fri, 28 Oct 2011 20:56:00 +0000 XL-Network 1307 at http://xl-network.com ROAM support truck http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/07/roam-support-truck <p>Here's a quick message and some photo's about one of our support trucks which will be taking our luggage and (in case of a break down) our bikes.

In the first you can see a situation where I'm not very visible because of the bush on the left. I anticipate this and always expect a car to pull out of the side street or the main road. The second movie is less shocking, but it happens to me quite a lot. I don't have the right of way, but still receive it. Because I cannot see if the other person has seen me (especially car drivers) I stop. Resulting in... both of us standing still.</p> <p> <iframe title="YouTube video player" class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="520" height="320" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/lejUAoTQjRU?rel=0&amp;hd=1" frameborder="0"></iframe></p> <p> <iframe title="YouTube video player" class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="520" height="320" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/OtlKZ8e-Ry8?rel=0&amp;hd=1" frameborder="0"></iframe></p> http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/05/anticipate-and-keep-going#comments Car Filming Helmetcam Movie Recumbents Stupid Cow Fri, 20 May 2011 21:08:07 +0000 XL-Network 1127 at http://xl-network.com Dude! http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/05/dude <p>... use your indicators!

Because America has some mountains (like the Rocky's) it seemed a good idea to put in a smaller gear in the middle of the bike. Also, a number of components were checked, lubricated and replaced. The rear chain for instance has been replaced. That being said, it lasted for some 10.686 kilometers. Also the steering block has been replaced because it had a little to much play when I'm speeding down the mountain with 70+ km/h. The last part they have replaced was the bell.</p> <p><a href="http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/05/pre-roam-check-up-and-almost-run-over" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/05/pre-roam-check-up-and-almost-run-over#comments Car Filming Helmetcam Maintenance Movie Photo's Recumbents Roll over America Rowing Stupid Cow Sat, 14 May 2011 20:42:55 +0000 XL-Network 1122 at http://xl-network.com No parking please http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/05/no-parking-please <p>You can stop your car on all sorts of places... for instance on the cycle path.</p> <p> <iframe title="YouTube video player" class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="520" height="320" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/y_hsfsvx_1U?rel=0&amp;hd=1" frameborder="0"></iframe></p> http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/05/no-parking-please#comments Car Filming Helmetcam Movie Recumbents Stupid Cow Thu, 12 May 2011 22:35:27 +0000 XL-Network 1120 at http://xl-network.com Three times a charm http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/05/three-times-a-charm <p>Yes, we got another one, well... actually three. The first car driver does stop, but does it in the middle of the other lane where another car is coming. The second car also stops, but arrives at a high speed, making me unsure if he was going to stop. The last one leaves a side street with a raised curb (so I have priority). She pull's out and luckily sees me and hits the throttle.</p> <p> <iframe title="YouTube video player" class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="520" height="320" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/cCtwjDYwrEI?rel=0&amp;hd=1" frameborder="0"></iframe></p> http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/05/three-times-a-charm#comments Car Filming Helmetcam Movie Recumbents Stupid Cow Wed, 11 May 2011 07:45:00 +0000 XL-Network 1118 at http://xl-network.com Even more movies http://xl-network.com/blog/2011/04/even-more-movies <p>Okay, two more movies, just for you guys.
