I have just joined today. My name is Mick, and I live in Northern Ireland. I got my first EUC around three weeks ago, and have about 6 hours of riding so far, but I am doing well, I managed my first long-distance (for me anyway) ride today of 8.6 miles on a local cycle path.
I went for the King song KS18XL after reading reviews etc., and I am impressed its a great little piece of kit. I have rode high powered e-bikes like the Sur-Ron before, I also have a Kaabo Mantis Pro electric scooter and an electric longboard, so I am not new to electric transport, just new to the EUC world, and I love it so far. I do, however, need to build my confidence up on roads, but I think that will come with practice. At the minute I can wobble a fair bit when first starting, so I believe I should stay off roads until I build up the balance and muscle memory required.
I randomly met another rider on my journey today, who told me about the forum. It was a surreal moment, as we were riding towards each other, both gesturing greetings. Anyway we stopped and chatted, and he told me about this forum. So I have signed up, we were both of the opinion we were the only EUC riders in Belfast, hopefully he will see this post.
So hello from me, and I look forward to participating in the discussions.
