So there we were in Berlin, at the bike rental shop, when Lo and behold Red Lightning appeared. At first, one would be intimidated by such sheer beauty and borderline incredulous size, but not us. Not today. You may be asking yourself the same questions we had; does it go twice as fast? Is it twice as awesome? The answers; no and absolutely. You are an instant celebrity on a tandem bicycle, German or not. Being an American in Berlin on one of these says It all. Still not sure what that is, but man o man, it was fun!
