    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    You gotta listen to the market! We're all hardcore enthusiasts here and would love to see something like that being sold, but we likely don't represent the majority. That concept wheel is all hardcore Harley Davidson while most people who buy these likely just want a Vespa for commuting. Thanks for sharing that photo and blog info, @Bobwheel. We're all drooling here. You can really see the amount of detail that goes into InMotion wheels. Hopefully with the increased success of InMotion you never know, there might some money in the budget for one of these concept wheels or at least components that trickle down into the released models. How many concept vehicles do you see ever actually made? They are meant more to inspire people's imaginations into seeing what future possibilities there are and demonstrate the forward thinking of the company that presents them. I think InMotion has a great foothold in this industry and hopefully will continue to be a market leader.

    Holy crap what the heck? Now THAT is what I imagine is in Batman's riding arsenal when he isn't riding his Ninebot Z! Wicked cool... but maybe more leg cushions against those support bars... and bolt on the V5F trolly handle...

    Congratulations on your new endeavour, and the suspension idea looks to be very interesting! I think we're all interested in new EUC developments coming down the pipe. No one likes to see mommy and daddy fight. Is it a can of worms to open up if we ask what went wrong and whether there is any possibility of a resolution?

    This is how I imagine @The Fat Unicyclist rides after downing a few at the Tilted Kilt! No wonder those pedals are all scraped up! Maaaaaybe it's time to talk about that slight drinking problem, HOJ. EUC pedal underside skid plates! We need 'em!

    Is it weird to be eating breakfast at Denny's at 12:30 am? Hit the spot though.

    What is this foreign from down in the nether regions "salt of the sweaty chicken" dost thou speaketh? Is that code for MSG? We in Canada have no such thing. I'm trying to uplift the little respected KFC gravy to a new level of appreciation! Seriously, the flavor combination does work. My scientific studies prove it. Sure, sure it hasn't been peer reviewed yet, and there's that little minor issue of the sample size being one. I'm not deterred by minor details. This new food finding can't be held back from the public. It must be unleashed to bask in all its glory! Um, it would help if someone at least tried it and reported back. I need more data points before I can publish!

    Anyone replaced their car yet?

    I've carried a large box down to the post office to mail, and I've gone shopping for some items like a 4L milk, jug of lemonade, eggs, etc. It's actually very practical and fun if you don't need to get a lot of items. I usually will carry one plastic bag in each hand and ride home. I haven't bothered bringing a backpack, but that's an option. It's not too bad with the extra ballast, but you have to keep full control of your wheel with only your feet. It's a little tricky on downward slopes so be careful. I still need to practice stopping on downhills. Uphills don't seem as bad for some reason. People love seeing you riding and carrying stuff around. I've had cars stop especially for me to cross the road. I usually try to give them a thumbs up if I can, but it depends on how heavy the bags are.

    Whoa... never thought of that! Will do! Yeah this miso stuff is like crack cocaine. I can't imagine I've never tried it for all these years. I mean, I've had miso soup which tends to be a little too salty for me, but this miso paste stuff is like a whole different world. Speaking of crack cocaine, anyone try GravitosTM yet? Com'on, someone 'fess up. It's better than good right? Actually it's too good. I found myself diving to the local KFC to buy another tub of large gravy so I could take it home and slather it all over my large bag of Costco Doritos Nacho Chips. It's weird just ordering one tub of large gravy. I wonder what the workers there think. What is this guy going to do with this one large tub of gravy? He looks pretty normal, but he has that sly look behind his eyes as he greedily grabs the gravy tub and drives off... Gawd, how am I not 250 pounds already? It's like an internal lubricant that keeps all the inner parts moving smoothly. It's like that ray of sunshine on a dark, cloudy day. It's like that soft, supple, heaving bosom that you can nuzzle your face against on a lonely night. Ah... oh what was I talking about again? Oh right! GravitosTM! Seriously. Try some. You will thank me later. Just be sure to be close to an AED machine. I am 100% not kidding. About the GravitosTM. It's a little strange dipping the triangular, orange crusts of goodness into the brown, savory gravy bath. Your eyes just say no no no, but your tastebuds are like sure bring it on baby!!! After the first couple of chips you start scooping up more gravy into the delicate curves of the nacho chip, being ever so careful not too drip any of that delectable artery lube onto your T-shirt. Your mind says no more no more! But the spirit is irresistibly drawn to that dark madness of the GravitoTM.

    Be sure to give us a report on how the wheel turns out for you. I'm always curious to see how these wheels evolve and like checking out all the nitty gritty components in them along with following the politics and economics behind them all. It's interesting to be able to interact with some of the people behind the companies. Too bad more of them aren't active on the forums, but I'm sure they are busy with their business activities or just want to listen in to grab the odd idea . Others probably got tired of the complaints (like Gotway) and drifted into lurker mode. The GT16 is sure a cool looking wheel. When the first concept images came out I was like , but stories of the tricky to access components, reliability concerns, and failures made me look elsewhere. It does sound like the newer versions should be solid hopefully. Even the Tesla had that scary faceplant video a while back... I don't think there exists that "perfect" wheel yet, but it's nice to see that they are making good progress!

    After eating another tub of "GravitosTM" the other day, let me say that there is noooo problem with that sort of movement! Okay guys, let's steer this wheel back on topic! We're veering off course! Lean to the left, to the left!!

    Oh oh I think I've started a movement. Well if you can't get to the mountain, make the mountain come to you I always say! Still I think there would be advantages of having a grippy, yet cushiony pedal pad. I love my Telsa sandpaper pedals, but for longer trips I wonder whether a fatigue mat sort of foam that gives a little would be beneficial. I try to think well what would I prefer to stand on for two hours - a hard piece of sandpaper or a medium spongy mat or both?

    It's Friday. I'm sleepy. How did I miss that? So @Cloud - what made you decide to pull the trigger on the GT16? Was it the mix of performance and the wicked looking racing bike like shell design? Why not the ACM2 or the Msuper X?

    Or maybe just cut out footprint shaped grip tape pieces and attach them to the bottom of your shoes! You could then get a grip on the ENTIRE WORLD! Everything would be so grippy!

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Trying to think outside of the box here, but why can't someone make a rubber pad with grip material embedded on top? Would the hard pieces of corundum just fall out? Or if there is some sort of flexible adhesive that can bond to the rubber/silicone/whatever, maybe attach a coat onto the pad? It would be nice to get the best of both worlds... for long distance riding comfort and off-roading grip. Looking at the rubber pad pattern, maybe trying to tape pieces of slim grip tape in between the grooves might work... I don't know how well the adhesive backing sticks to that material though... plus if the pad is flexing it might detach over time?

    Rule number one of shopping online - check for cashback rebates if any! I think I got like $79 back for my AliExpress purchase. Just sign up for an Ebates account, and before you buy, go to Ebates, find the seller link, click it to activate your rebate, and then purchase it. I think it works with the phone App too. Just go through Safari or whatever browser to click through, and then buy it through the app. It really adds up over the years if you buy stuff online. Amazon and eBay works as well. Every bit counts!

    I think they may be referring to the fact that their V1 had no special waterproofing measures, and few reports of issues were reported so there likely isn't going to be an issue except in @LEO_LEO's case. You might want to be careful if riding in a rainstorm. Might be best to take a look see at the insides just in case, but I hear it can be a pain to get at the insides. I wonder if applying a thin bead of silicone sealant to the edges of the motor covers might be a good idea. You're probably the kind of hardcore rider who doesn't mind riding in the rain and through puddles? They also have made the motor auto shut off at 63° tilt? I think the Gotways used to be at 45°, but after EUC Extreme's request of increasing it to over 60° they made that firmware change. People then complained that their wheels would spin wildly and not turn off soon enough so I think they set it back to 45°. BTW, did you remember to click through ebates.com for your AliExpress purchase? You can get some cashback from various online retailers.

    If you buy larger pieces, here's a good video on how to prepare it into pieces.

    I've been tempted to get some of that 3M conformal spray to add some extra protection. I wish these wheels all came 100% waterproofed. I know some apply waterproofing coatings, but I think they don't protect the connectors. If I were to ride through rainstorms I might coat all connectors as well:
