  1. I guess this all depends on the person. But I understand both positions. On top of everything. I think environmental awareness is the biggest key. Also wearing all of the proper gear. I really appreciate all of your inputs.
  2. Are you planning one of these again any time soon. I really would like to ride with some other people.
  3. I don’t get why some people are so passionately against this. It’s totally smart to be mentally prepared. Of course studying how to fall would benefit us!
  4. It’s not that I’m practicing falling. More like being mentally prepared on what to do in that event. I think the main thing is to not panic and to try and drop in a cat like position like the other mentioned. I will not be practicing on how to fall.
  5. Wow thank you guys so much. There is so much to consider here. I will watch all of those falling videos. I understand that a fall is unexpected and not planned, but I am going to have to agree that practicing the muscle memory to falling in such a way as to do the least damage is the smartest idea. Right below wearing the proper protection. So I will definitely study up.
  6. I am sorry about your fall. The way you told the beginning was so funny!
  7. Hello everyone. I have really been enjoying my new 18xl. I was wondering if you guys have any tips pointers or advice on how one should fall off properly if the time ever occurs. Thank you so much in advance for any help!
  8. oh thats weird. It worked like 5 times. not that I would ever use it. I wonder what causes it to fail
  9. I just got the wheel and have rode for about 9 hours. I am a complete newb. So lets just say there have been some tumble. I tried sounding the horn yesterday and noticed it no longer works. The bluetooth speaker works and everything else seems fine. I tried from the regular app and the darknessbot app. Has anyone else had this issue?
  10. lol thank you so much. What a nice complement. If you are ever in the LA area we should ride together. I rode around the rose bowl today and I took my first fall. I was trying to go down a little decline and lost control and flew off. Luckily I was padded because I didn’t feel a thing the inside of my shins are sore from all the riding and my ankles from whacking on the wheel lol. I’m gonna let this heal up. So it will only get better from here right?
  11. I squat 350 so maybe that has something to do with it lol. I made the video just for you brotha. Here it is Click me! I am definitely feeling like a baby haha.
  12. Alright I’m gonna take some videos haha as soon as I woke up this morning learning is all I want to do.
  13. I made lots of progress today everyone I went about 2 1/2 hours.I started on the roof of a grocery store and it was empty and there was a wall about 4 and a half feet tall. I was going back and forth along that wall for a while but I felt like I was putting too much of my balance onto the little wall.there was also some shopping carts. This allowed me to go my furthest distance on the wheel. while the shopping cart was kind of fun. It just had me leaning on the cart and it was turning awkwardly at time. I went to the park and found a fence that had a nearby obstacle of about 6-8 feet from it. Having the fence was much better because it was more like a guide and I wasn’t able to really put any weight on it. I managed to glide to that obstacle and back to the fence a couple times. That felt so gratifying. I wasn’t able to recreate that but I felt much more of a bonding with my wheel. Thank you all again for all the support and tips. With more practice I’ll be like you all in no time.
  14. oh wow thank you guys for all the support. I have all my pads and Jason indeed sent me the wrist pads which are very nice. I tried riding for about an hour yesterday, then it started raining. my gosh it was so difficult. I could do the circle spinny thing and I can hop in a straight line for a little bit. Someone recommended using a shopping cart to get started. I am going to try that today. Do you guys have any tips. Also, I have that body guard which is really nice but I scratched my pedals up pretty nicely and a slight scratch on my handlebar
