Yet, as much as history’s gasoline chapter boasts more heft for the pound, there’s no doubt that her zero-emission chapter is also rapidly expanding.
Milestones are milestones, regardless of what you ride – and that includes a recent achievement unlocked for a woman by the name of Sinje Gottwald.
She’s CAKE’s sales/account manager.
According to Alex Whitworth’s coverage on VisorDown, Gottwald just broke a record for “the longest distance ever on an electric motorcycle.”
“My dream was to see the world with my own eyes,” contributes the sales manager.
“No matter how much I learn about places, seeing and experiencing them myself will always give me a better understanding. This, I feel, is particularly the case for Africa.”
After a (very) eventful company dinner during the fall of 2021, Sinje’s position as CAKE’s sales manager was temporarily swapped for “field tester and Africa Explorer” – a role that had her swinging a leg over a CAKE Kalk AP (one of the more unassuming electric machines in our industry) and crossing the African continent lengthwise, from Spain.
The gal ended up logging over 13,000km in 124 days – all without a stitch of technical support for the Kalk AP, we might add.
