  1. Well, I just looked that up and the experts on the Internet say that a standard A-B-C or a B-C dry powder fire extinguisher should work just fine. I would add check to make sure you have a working smoke detector.
  2. @bigwave, that is really impressive! Great job!
  3. At the very back of my helmet there is a little flat lip that faces down, so I was able to screw the mount from the light up into that, and then I reinforced it with hot glue.
  4. The light may be overkill, and sticks out quite a bit so I am not sure that I will keep it, but it is a Meilan X5 complete with turn signals
  5. Thanks for the video, Marty. Your tips about using hot glue to secure the mirror inside its housing and the recommendation for 3M dual Lock are especially appreciated. I got the mirror mounted this afternoon and then went ahead and added a light to the back of the helmet.
  6. Nice ride and nice video. I look forward to seeing more!
  7. It is funny, but the two videos I have just finished watching this evening were the one you posted which TheTopher made shortly after he began riding, and then this one he made two years later. It answered the question I had, which was "I wonder if he is he still riding without any protection?" I bet that he gave up on grabbing random leaves too.
  8. Seba, I tried sending you a pm, and got this error message: "Seba cannot receive messages" Seba cannot receive messages. Anyway to answer your question, my user name is rainystateguy. Thanks again
  9. I am glad to hear that you survived relatively unscathed. I will remember not to high five anyone while I am riding. In return let me pass on a bit of wisdom that I learned the hard way: When you are riding a motorcycle, and find your right hand busy holding an object - DON'T reach across with your left hand to turn the throttle.
  10. Hi Seba, I tried several times to send you a few dollars via the method at the beginning of this thread with no luck. I finally gave up and sent it to you via PayPal. I sincerely hope that you receive it. Thanks for everything that you do for our community!
  11. Search on Google "How to make a dead cat" If you are using a Gopro you can also get something like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OJFJPF8/ You will find several videos on youtube where folks make their own or buy deadcats and do before and after comparisons.
  12. I am just beginning to learn to ride an EUC, but I have been riding motorcycles for 50 years. For the first 4 decades most of my riding was with minimal equipment, mainly to satisfy local helmet laws. What changed my mind, about 10 years ago, was when I went down at a fairly low speed on a gravel turn. That happened to be one of the very few rides when I was wearing a full face helmet. I usually wore just a half or 3/4 helmet. Needless to say the accident deeply gouged the chin piece of that helmet. Looking at those gouges and reaching up and rubbing my hand over my uninjured chin made a huge impression on me. I don't wear all the equipment all the time when I ride my bike now, but I sure wear a lot more than I used to. I don't think that it is the size of the equipment we ride that changes our habits, but rather the accident, or hopefully near miss, that we are in that does that.
  13. I'm a new EUC owner - can't say rider yet. Hopefully when this series of storms pass that will change. I'm in Centralia, the halfway point along I-5 between Seattle and Portland. Just looking for nearby folks who ride.
  14. That was one of the most incredible videos I have ever seen in my 73 years on this earth. You are incredibly talented, Sir. I look forward to seeing more of your work...And you have mastered riding an EUC? This beginning rider is so in awe.
