    UK, Ride the Blackpool lights 28/08/18

    August will soon be upon us and so far it's jut me again riding the lights at Blackpool. Surely there must be other riders nearby who fancy doing the ride?

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Just uploaded a video from a youtube link but can't view the video? Checked other videos uploaded to this forum and can't see any of them either. Anyone know why. I used to be able to see them.

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    A friend offered to do a video of me on my KS14D while I was juggling. He did it from his drone so got some interesting angles

    I wonder where they got their third party insurance from? Surely they would have had to risk assess it and thereby deem insurance was absolutely necessary!! PS Has anyone dared to ride their EUC in B&Q yet? LOL

    I see your not on the map of EUC riders yet. We need to get everyone on it so we can see where our nearest riders are and hopefully arrage meets. Here is the link to the map https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1rj0BJqr1wpilPUmFC4blqlmAihI&hl=en_US&ll=17.085747915662058%2C26.13422055000001&z=2

    I'm sure I could insure it against being stolen just like any other thing I own but that wouldn't help if you were involved in an accident/claim. It has to be insured for third party risk.

    I decided to see if I could insure my EUC, and sent the following email to an insurance broker:- Dear sirs, I would like to know if it is possible to insure my electric self balancing unicycle for 3rd party risks? It is basically a Segway with only one wheel capable of similar speeds to a bicycle. This is a link to the company who manufacture them:- https://www.kingsong.com/list-28.html The law regarding the operation of them seems very grey but I mainly ride on promenades/parks/cycle lanes etc. and avoid where possible roads or pavements except for access. I am aware of two cases of riders being prosecuted for not having insurance, hence my question. See links below:- https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/top-motorcycle-racer-caught-riding-11739522 https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/man-ended-up-six-points-12031624 I checked my home insurance policy and they do not cover vehicles. My mobile number is 077******** if you woud like to discuss this request. Regards Andy ******* I waited over a week for a reply and had to send another reminder email to them. I received the following reply:- Good morning Mr ***** Firstly may I apologise for not replying to your initial email, I have looked into the matter this morning and it appears to have been overlooked and for that I am sorry. With regards to the enquiry, unfortunately we do not have any markets at present that can offer the cover for your personal transport so I am unable to provide any terms for the risk. Again please accept my sincere apologies and I hope you manage to find someone who can offer the cover you require. Regards ******** Insurance Brokers Ltd Well I tried but failed. If I get pulled up for no insurance I can say I tried !!!

    Well said. Is there anything in the so called law that says the pedals on an electric bike must actually be capable of turning the wheel?

    Thanks for the suggestion re settings. I went to the "Display" - "Screen zoom and font" settings and reduced the font size slightly and it cured the problem. Only thing now is I need straonger glasses to read everything else LOL. Oh to be young again!

    What make of phone is it?. Mine is a Samsung Galaxy A3 2017
  12. I wonder if we attached some dummy pedals (even if they didn't drive the wheel) we would be ok LOL

    I can't see how you could get points on your car licence for riding a wheel which is not classified as a vehicle. The department of transport say it doesn't meet the minimum requirements to be a vehicle so you can't tax and insure it for use on the road. Your driving licence does not include it so how do you get points?

    Looks like you have a couple of riders near you. Have you met them?

    Well this topic has died so I thought as it has been almost 4 months since I started it I would see if there are any new riders in my area. Just click the link and add your location etc https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1rj0BJqr1wpilPUmFC4blqlmAihI&hl=en_US&ll=17.085747915662058%2C26.13422055000001&z=2
