    Marty and Duf LIVESTREAM! Sunday August 19th!

    We just call it, "The Beast!" Mrs. TFU took it for a ride up the hill the other day, and in "top gear" struggled to keep the front wheel on the ground. And, yes. I will post more video soon...

    But if I was in there (especially in profile) you wouldn't have seen the view of my local harbour. It is so much more than I expected... These crazy uni-wheeled jockeys keep popping up everywhere. To the point that I need to place another order as there is bugger-all left from the first shipment - And I flatly refuse to part with my "demo wheels". Yeah, we have our moments... And you're more than welcome to come and see it for yourself! Loaner EUC shouldn't be too hard to organise - and I here rumours that we have "medication" available in New Zealand too? Nope... This was taken at about 13:00 today (17 August 2018)… As you may recall, regardless of the time of year, every so often Wellington just turns on one of those awesome days - and today was one of them! I was riding in just jeans and a tee-shirt (and wrist-guards / helmet, of course). Along the water-front there was no real wind, and the heat from the sun made it feel like 15-20°C. It was simply fantastic! Yes, new stock... In urgent need of testing before it was too late. It was actually just after I caught up with @Mishkin to share some of my toys with him!

    Dogs and your unicycle

    It's your own fault... How many times now have I told you not to ride with a string of sausages in your back pocket? But you just keep doing it!

    I was doing that today... I had to "test ride" a new KS-16S, so thought it would be good to do around the Wellington waterfront, at lunchtime. So there are all these pained looking runners out there, and I can just slide up until I am just in their line of sight... So many of them see me and then try to increase their speed. All the while I can just stand there "aimlessly". And just when they reach that point of, "What the f..." I just lean forward a little and leave them somewhere way behind me. I do feel a little bad for doing this, but only a little.

    What is the minimum protection you wear?

    I think he had panty liners on too... Does that count?

    This EUC gig is gruelling... Today I had to test ride a KS-16S, and the conditions were atrocious!

    You mean something like these... http://www.helitemoto.com

    What is the minimum protection you wear?

    Which is why we should all ride wearing these...

    Dogs and your unicycle

    On my KS-18L, small barking aggressive dogs are but a passing bump that makes you ask, "Did it just get quieter here?"

    Wasn't that just bedliner?

    So I've just started up a business selling these things... Does that mean I'm now a pimp?

    Here in New Zealand, items that are shipped in direct (eg. from someone like Chen) will be held by our Customs department until we pay the appropriate taxes and duties. So if it slips through, all may be good. But if it is spotted, it may become a problem for the buyer rather than the seller.

    So one of the items listed in the "Final Second Tranche" is... 8711.60.00 - Motorcycles (incl. mopeds) and cycles, w/electric motor for propulsion Which sort of suggests that they may be tariffed.

    I was waiting for someone to mention that... But you will notice I said "General Rules" as there are always exceptions - and this was one of them.

    Yes, I agree... but there is a difference between riding at 10 km/h and riding at 40 km/h... in particular the potential damaged caused. And while I don't condone people taking unnecessary risk, the fact is that every person crossing a road anywhere is taking a risk - it comes down to the potential for injury to occur, and how significant that injury may be...
