  1. And they do. And the harder it is for the great unwashed to find out about it the better.
  2. Congratulations. you win the prize for not listening. But there was a lot of competition.
  3. People on the English language thread are trying to put together a list of legal/illegal countries for EUC riding. If they do this it will be easier for people around you (neighbors, local officials, police, enemies, work colleagues with a grievance towards you, etc, etc to discove rthat you are breaking the law. I seem to be the only one fighting them. By the way, its people from legal countries who don't see a problem with this. Please help me fight this stupid idea, or you may start to find people shouting at you "hey! those are illegal" (only in German), or worse. (think fines and conf
  4. Not illegal there, not an accurate comparison. I'm actually surprised at you. If you can't relate than you can't have empathy either.
  5. Well up to a few minutes ago this forum was littered with where I live and where I ride. But I have gone through and removed as much of that as possible. But my original point was not a witch hunt of me or another member, but just making it easier for people with a grudge to research and discover more easily , the person that rides an EUC regularly near them is actually breaking the law. They may have an EUC grudge (loud bluetooth music, riding fast, riding on biker path, etc) or they may have an unrelated grudge boundary dispute, parking dispute, jealous, etc) and want to get back at that
  6. I don't think people who ride in legal areas have a right to ask for or create this list. You have no skin in the game. If you're legal. Be happy about it. But leave the rest of us alone. What is it to you if someone in a non- legal area buys one without knowing the legality. There are plenty of people riding , knowingly in illegal countries, what is the tragedy if one more buys one? Certainly none to you. Please give it a rest; your casual curiosity bring more danger to those not blessed by living in a legal zone. This is not a subject for your casual curiosity. Your insistence is qu
  7. Yeah, because that's always how legislation goes regarding fringe technologies. Everyone is jumping on the band wagon to approve electric rideables...not! This is the second time this troublesome (although well intentioned) list has been proposed, and both times by someone who rides in a legal area. If you look at it from the point of view of a rider outside the legal zones, surely you can see that it is not a clever idea for them. I say to you in legal areas, stop trying to dob the rest of us in. Let sleeping dogs lie. Anyone serious about travelling with their euc can ask a bo
  8. If it is legal where they are, their search will be fruitless and nothing changes for us. But if their search turn up our, oh so convenient, list, and it is illegal, then things change for some of us. A list like this holds no potential harm for those who ride in a legal zone so they have no problem with it, but for those of us who don't ride in legal zones, it's the complete opposite. People who live in legal areas should not be so quick to collate a list including places where people ride illegally , who might pay for their curiosity.
  9. I think its a really good idea to give anyone (or any politician) who is angry towards EUCs in their area, to give them a searchable one stop shop to figure out if EUCs are illegal in their area so they can proceed to make complains to the relevant authorities. Or maybe not.
  10. Well spotted my vote is glue reflecting light as mentioned above by @Chriull But since you forced me to examine the picture more closely, it does look like all of them have some amount of this woven pattern effect; but none as much as on the two blown fets. It might just be possible that the heat caused the transfer of material (more where hottest) rather than the other way round as we are speculating. And the materiel is simply the insulation sheet partly decomposing from being outside its design temperature range.
  11. Where there are people there are thieves. Don't take your eyes off your valuables for 5 seconds when in public. People will steal anything they think they can sell to make some cash or buy some drugs, even if they have no idea what it is. Its the same everywhere, except in an Amish village, but even there you have to watch out for the other tourists. @erk1024 I would bet money that scooter rider was looking to steal your wheel. Who manhandles someone else's stuff in the street with good intentions? He touched your helmet and wrist guard, and that is clearly personal property, even clo
  12. @Jim Martin So sorry for your loss.......................................of faith in Gotway. Hmm! Now where have I heard that before? Meet "Dirty" Harry Gotway
  13. I can't see the tire/rim relationship changing as you spun the wheel, so it looks like you simply have a wonky tire. Its possible it will smooth out over the miles. New tires are often stiff but loosen up as they get used. Maybe ride it at a lower pressure for a while to "exercise" the rubber. Tires are made quickly and as cheaply as possible, especially these basic bicycle tires (not specialised racing tires). So getting a few bad ones is inevitable.
