    And she loves cats. You lucky man.
  2. Weave, slalom, seem to be the most appropriate. Yes I agree weaving is fun, just like sidewalk skiing. Funny enough Jan and Dean (before the Beach Boys) wrote a song in the sixties called Sidewalk Surfin'. It is about skateboarding At the very end they repeat over and over "skateboard with me why don't you skateboard with me". Weaving also has a small benefit; it evens out the wear on your tyre so it doesn't get a flat spot (grove) in the middle, wearing the tyre out prematurely. Turning on a tyre with a flat spot is weird, ask any sports bike rider.

    My KS18XL Trials, Tribulations, and Failures

    The risk of persuading a female you love to ride EUC, is that one day she might have a serious injury. I would not want to know that it was my coercion to learn, that caused my baby to break a wrist or cut her chin or any of the various injury possibilities. I am my baby's protector, keeping her safe from all that is bad out there. pushing her to learn EUC would go against my internal remit. Now having said that my baby is a girly girl, she does nothing dangerous except bare back horse riding ( her choice not mine). Yours @Mike Sacristan sounds more adventurous, but I still wouldn't push her. Watching her limp for 6 months would be a constant reminder that "I caused that" . For me, getting her to join me with an escooter would be a result.
  4. Amen to that. If this is a genetic abnormality then turn up the radiation to make it grow (as @Marty Backe and @houseofjob apparently have already done. Marty says he's in aerospace, I think he changes the fuel rods at his local nuclear power station---by hand)) When it comes to normal people, I want to be as little like them as possible; grey soulless robots soaking in conformity and living it to the letter. But I bet most of us here feel like that.
  5. Maybe leave the baby at home! Just sayin'

    I'll be doing it again soon. Once is never enough. Only -2 here AND SUNNY. Time for another ride

    Damn it Marty you're like a drug dealer now, feeding us what we crave most. What do charge for a 1/4 oz?

    Sorry, forgot to answer this one. I ordered it from Germany when I was staying in Provence . It was the first month of a 5 month road trip. It turned up about two days before I had to leave for Spain, but I did manage to get in a few hours of practice. You haven't lived until your first hour of EUC training is on a basketball court shared with 15 French kids playing football. Nothing says "incoming!" like footballs whizzing past your head while riding an EUC. That was the end of October. Days later I was in Casteldefelle near Barcelona. That's where I really learned to ride Sitges, Barcelona etc. That was November. December was spent in Denia, January too I think. March February was Cabo Roig (torrevieja area).

    EMMM! I love Mentos too. But I think you spelled it wrong.
  10. Well you know what I'm about to ask, don't you. . . . Go count them, and no cheating with tiny steps. But I think @novazeus has us all beat; 2000 feet I think he said was the length of his own personal EUC training ground driveway. ps I was fully aware of the size of your lot when I posted that 155.

    Speaking of huge signatures, @Marty Backe yours isn't exactly on the small side. But, at least someone is happy about it; I mean you're smiling, Aren't you! In fact, since @Mike Sacristan removed his after your heckling, yours is now officially the biggest.

    You see! Now you're getting it. Everybody's angry about something, they just don't always feel like talking about it for fear of being misunderstood or ridiculed. Now don't we all feel better!?

    You know, now you mention it, it was a rather angry picture. I mean all sorts of unintelligible data, unfamiliar fields, etc. It certainly made me angry. Not the photo thread, post it once here, since this is the thread where the unaskable question was asked. It would make more sense, n'est pas?
  14. No flucking way. That's real?!!! What do you mean cheap? the combined value of your wheels (just since the accident) and your super duper drone (yeah, I looked it up) could be used to put a down payment on a house in London, and that's saying something.

    Yep. Pretty much. Speaking of Torrevieja, I spent a month living down the beach from there. a few winters back. Had my KS14c with me and wheeled hundreds of miles all around there from Alicante in the north to La Manga and Cartagena in the south. I loved it.
