  1. I've been in agony for the last week with my knee. I am also just learning. I bought a knee support which allowed me to put an ice pack inside, it's started to ease the last few days, so I think it's about conditioning rather than some severe injury. At first I couldn't put weight on it at all, now it's a little niggle. If it persists, maybe get it seen to.
  2. For me the skateboard is pure fun, I use it when the kids are out in their bikes. The other devices are more commuter tools, or they were purchased with that intent, I can see the EUC becoming more than that though - as soon as my knee stops hurting 😂😂😂
  3. Hey everyone, 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.
