  1. Good to know that you can stretch the RollNZ over the power pads, I might try that in the future!!
  2. Mike had mentioned this tire that is on my Nikola ( CST C-1773), it does everything so damn good, I'd like to order another one just to have, I'm in the US, does anyone know where to source this tire?
  3. Okay, I'll be sure to update with the RollNZ. I'm not sure the stock pads would be comfortable, the shell is pretty wide up top and I'm afraid they'd cut into my legs, if they were bigger and thinner I would try them but I just don't think they'll be comfortable.
  4. I've got an africa twin that I mounted a plastic milk crate on where my top case mounts to carry my Mten3, I originally wanted to carry my MCM5 and probably still could but would have to do some more rigging, I can actually carry two MTen's side by side if need be, I'll try to take a pic when I get home from work before dark.
  5. You know, I've had a few of the RollNZ covers in the past, I need to check them out for the Nik, I was concerned that it would cover up the cool lights, I know, but it would protest the wheel as well as provide more grip. Thanks!! Oh, I didn't even consider the stock pads, no way I think they'd be comfortable, they're super on my MCM5 though! Edit: Problem solved, the RollNZ does not cover up the cool RGB's so I'll be ordering one today (black sides/flouro green edges)!!
  6. No sir, I haven't even gotten them yet, I just checked and they're not due til late December, so I'm going to order something in stock, I failed to notice that they weren't in stock at checkout. I'm not looking so much for power pads, just something to provide grip for the shell is really slick as you know or have read, not sure what to buy so any suggestions would be appreciated, I reckon I'll just look for something with adhesive backing that is rubbery or sticky for grip.
  7. Glad you like it, you looked like a pro on it!! Some dude came up to me while you were riding it and said, "dang, that dude is flying on that little contraption", I said "yeah, I hate him", just kidding, you looked right handsome on that Nikola:)
  8. Thanks Mike, I'm happy with my trio of wheels, it's time to dedicate more time to riding them now! I may end up throwing that grip tape stuff in the garbage, it was cheap so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm no tire expert for EUC's but can say that it does feel good, I may try to source another one just have on stand by.
  9. Yes, it has the CST C-1773. Here is the grip tape or tank pad I was mentioning, not looking so much for padding, just grip cause as you know, the Nikola sides are slick. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SL3JNSC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. Sorry for the late reply. Mine has the 21700's, I might be wrong but I think the 2100wh has the 18650's. To me, the MCM5 is exactly split between the Mten3 and say a MSP or 16x, if that makes sense, the MCM5 is super fun for sure but the Nikola feels like a big wheel, a lot of it is just the physical dimensions, the power is there and more of it but it does take more effort to extract it as opposed to the MCM5 with the smaller wheel. 10 minutes and I was doing fairly tight figure 8's and such, I'm sure you're a better rider than I am so you'll have zero difficulty with the Nikola. 40
  11. Y'all would kick me off this forum if you knew how little I ride, terrible job and many other hobbies takes time away but my heart is always in it...
  12. And they both showed up today, both freaking awesome!! I've only put a few miles on the Nik and man, there's nothing I don't like about it, well, the speakers aren't quite as good as I hoped they'd be but I ain't complaining, I've got some grip tape coming for the sides for the smooth shell but other than that, it's ready to go for me. Helmet is awesome but with the goggles on, you sort of have a narrow field of vision, it'll be great on my motorcycle but on the EUC, I'll probably wear safety glasses or similar, definitely makes a statement with those teeth! Thanks for all the input fol
  13. Hell no, that's why we do it! It's funny, my top speed so far on the skateboard is about 18mph and that scared the chit out of me:/ What's the top speed on your Lightning+?
  14. "I didnt and dont know jack shit about scooters". You crack me up, I don't either Good to hear that you're stilla kid at heart Retro! Hey, we never know what we'll enjoy until we try/retry right? I need to make my way out to see you sometimes soon. We can freeze our nutz off and swap euc's for shits and gigles. Hell, I'd bring ALL my toys, as when is it ever too much! -Yeah, let me know, we can meet in the middle or stay here, as long as you don't mind cats:)
