  1. Like @ShanesPlanet, I respect your original and revised viewpoint also, for similar reasons. Sometimes he's pretty smart for a used lawnmower salesman...
  2. @ShanesPlanet, you're getting as long-winded as Marty... Marty is a good guy, focusing on providing useful information in a clear, professional, [disjoint] personal manner. @Marco Domingos focuses on himself repeating his own poor decisions. Did he spend $2,000 on tools & lighting that appear to cost $40 out of China? Maybe he's including the mid-quality tables in those figures. What about his only artwork, the military-style poster of himself? Marco interviews himself--Marco's focus is on Marco, the rest are props used to circle back to discussing Marco. My guess is his channel would at minimum double subscribership if his wife was the host--not that there would be any more useful information, just better presentation.
  3. Yes, it was weird how that posted to the forum, using a remote connection may have caused it. (the the "rather odd" duplicate has been removed) -- @davinche I think part of the issue is many people who can afford EUCs as a hobby are a mixture of rational adult with strong focus in life and still young at heart who realize and accept potential shortcomings before investing. The OP played his shtick to the wrong audience. tldr: "Always know your audience."
  4. Are you aware that they just block me...? I don't blame them. I dont post here more often because everytime that I do is always people attacking... You focus on drama, and get the same critical attitude. If you want quality comments focus on quality content. Do you know that from all this videos if ive done $20 in total was a lot... That is a lot. It's hard to believe that many people like that sort of content, but Jersey Shore ran quite a few seasons. i dont have anything to add That's self-evident.
  5. Clean the main tube and occasionally use air spring lube to keep the seals lubricated. Very high-pressure seals supporting 100% of the rider weight & batteries, plus probably not as high of quality suspension--it's not a $500 suspension they're putting in the wheel. It is good for you that you can use your current wheels for life and only replace the batteries and a little axle grease. The rest of the world might like a technology update. Average speed does not take into account the speed people travel at when it is safe to do so. Average speed would be a lot slower if the top speed was a lot slower. Thankfully many people ride safely, as @travsformation describes: Like several people who are older and can afford wheels, my knees don't like the bumps after an hour or more either, so a suspension is a big upgrade.
  6. Hi guys. Sat down Saturday (my day off) to get this done, Windows 10 said it needed to reboot to finish installing updates. Well, don't ever let Windows do that if you need the computer the same day....that was the whole day shot. I apologize, I should have thought ahead on that one. With that going on I did leave for an appointment early and get a 1.3 mile ride in, then a thunderstorm hit and I got soaked. Rushing to get back I oversped and got "the beeps." I didn't slow down fast enough as I'd been riding one beep, slow down, one beep, slow down, and then the series of beeps hit--I slowed but not fast enough and dumped it at about 8 MPH = 13 KPH with a successful runoff. The machine needed to be powered off and back on as it would not reset by holding it level. I'll have to look at the photos, but top usable speed seems to be around 15.5 MPH = 25 KPH. @MRN76 has strongly suggested wearing safety gear, which I'll incorporate in the guide. I generally do not, but also keep it to about 12.5 MPH = 20 KPH (not that's very fast and not a good speed to have to bail out at). Hoverboards are not like wheels and can easily twist your joints...more on that later. I'll return to getting this done shortly, it's a huge push for me to finish this. Again, I apologize for rebooting, it was my mistake.
  7. From what I read, the KS16X is King Song's first attempt at copying Gotway instead of Segway and InMotion. Looks like they got it right...
  8. What was the fix???? New rider diet plan? Wheel max speed is 25% slower? "Please get off" saying now says something funny?
  9. that's really the failing of the Segway Transporter: it's a last-mile vehicle that can't easily be transported, and needs parking where no parking is designed for such a vehicle. Hoverboards & EUCs can be parked under your desk and put in a taxi if it rains/snows. And that's where Segway/Ninebot have failed in the hoverboard and EUC market: they keep making their products slower instead of faster. If they go as fast as I can walk, I can just walk...
  10. It does not have to be speed or quality or safety, this is a false assumption. If the customer wants speed, and you do not offer speed, the customer will buy from the company that gives them what they want. Often the customer also wants quality, and Gotway does not supply that in much of any capacity. It does however show that many customers want speed more than quality, which is Gotway's strength. Gotway sells mostly ugly travel suitcases with minimal flair, almost no quality, no real durability, for a lot of money, which is a testament to what people want.(Gotway does offer safety, which can be disabled by the user.) King Song sells a fast, dependable, rideable wheel, with pretty high quality, and a lot of range and pretty good durability. And they sell a lot of wheels. Segway/Ninebot sell a really durable, safe, sleek, rideable wheel that's as slow as pudding. Almost nobody here buys them. I won't buy them. I haven't seen any interest in what new wheel Segway may offer. Do they offer a new wheel? Now you have InMotion trying to produce a 34 MPH wheel, topping King Song by 4-6 MPH, depending on what InMotion actually comes out with. They have a suspension, a new motor, slick battery idea, and people are still drawn to King Song. Until InMotion makes a better, faster wheel, it doesn't matter, they've got to actually make a better, faster wheel. Kuji said it about the V10, he's always at the speed limit of the machine, so much so he taped over the speakers to shut them up. People who drive crotch-rockets (superbikes/motorcycles) do not drive at 145 MPH all the time! When EUCs went 15 MPH people wanted 20, and so on up to the MSX which does what? 45, 47 MPH? If a person cruises at 40 MPH [relatively] safely, that's a lot faster than King Song's 28 MPH real-world speed. And the MSP doesn't do 45-47, but the new one does. Why is that? People will buy a machine with both speed and quality, it's a given. The first company to put those two together is going to make a killing profit-wise. Safety? Like Mike Roe says, "Safety third."
  11. I thought an $800 top-of-the-line hoverboard was expensive. I thought a $2,000 top-of-the-line EUC was expensive. I think a $4,500 top-of-the-line scooter is expensive. Some people pay it thought, and if they thought it wasn't worth it, they wouldn't.
  12. While your feet are in the wrong position for running out of a crash, "too dangerous" is the operator exceeding their abilities. I've seen members here crash, and other members run out a crash. I think it depends on luck, skill, and circumstance. I ran out a crash yesterday after over-speeding a machine, my intention was not to over-speed, nor crash the machine, but that's the risk one takes when going fast, which was entirely my risk to take. I'm not a OneWheel type of owner, nor a scooter guy--even though they're safer than wheels and hoverboards. I like riding what I like riding, it's that simple. I think it is much the same for other people too, they like what they like.
  13. To tell the rider to "please get off" is extremely rude in many cultures. InMotion is really pushing the limits of the hardware if they cannot simply slow down. Gotway allows the rider freedom. Freedom coupled with ignorance is usually painful. Freedom coupled with arrogance is government. Freedom coupled with stupidity results in karma.
  14. Please get out? Oh no! Did they have a language translation problem? Please explain! Or link--post a link so I know what you're talking about.
  15. I'd think storage space would start becoming a concern with as many wheels as you are fortunate to enjoy. The weather by you is also very nice. Three weeks ago we had a snow blizzard. Last weekend 4.5" rain. Yesterday some sun, 1 mile into a ride: thunderstorm rolled in. Overspeed and cutout on the way back (no injuries, my bad). Had to change out of the wet clothes. Ah well, cooked dinner and fell asleep.
