    New GotWay Nikola 17''

    I still love my Tesla. The Nikola just doesn't seem like enough of an upgrade for me to get excited about .. I'm passing on it. It's huge, can't use one hand to carry it upstairs, same motor as the Tesla, smaller mosfets and wires, and not attracted to the bling-bling.
  2. I use this helmet in the Winter here in NYC, and it does really help on keeping wind off your face. I also wear a helmet skull cap for a little extra warmth.. Im very happy with it as the Winter winds off the Hudson river are pretty severe and really make my eyes tear. On the negative side, the visor does distort your vision a bit and takes a bit to adjust too. Its a great helmet, so much lighter then a moto helmet!
  3. @Girth Brooks congratulations on the 100volt Monster. I really love mine and primarily use it in the country on long fast road worthy trips. I noticed that there was a clicking sound coming from the rear when I hit a bumps, absolutely drove me crazy. . I opened up the little hatch near the rear light and discovered the light clip off the wire was hitting the shell. It was a simple fix with some silicone. It’s worth the effort to tighten up the ship here and there with silicone glue. Then again you might not be as fixated with the Gotway clicks, and creaking shell noises as I am. Enjoy !

    So I’ve stopped riding everything but my Z10

    @houseofjob is absolutely correct here. At the moment I own five Gotway wheels, and by far the MSX is the most uncomfortable to ride. Yes, I still ride it almost daily, even to work today at 5f, temps out there... but its just not as ergonomically designed as my other wheels. Gotway did fail at this with the MSX.

    THE HELMET THREAD

    I own this helmet, and also took off the visor. It’s carbon fiber and it’s an amazingly light, I had to exchange it for a large, as this helmet runs small. It’s a very safe helmet I use for my long range rides. Extremely happy with it.. When I bought it I was lucky to get it for $159.

    Dualtron II EX

    Ive had zero problem on the Dualtron II EX, every time I ride it Im amazed how fun and what a blast it is to ride.
  7. OK, now that it's looking like air travel with an EUC is inherently risky, lets consider that Mten 3 upgrade. I love my Mten3, but it would be fabulous to upgrade to a 12" tire, width of 4 inches, and bump up the motor to at least 1500w. A real compact, zippy, torquey, rocket ! Im in.

    Dualtron II EX

    Yes, the strap can be bought on Amazon, and the folding handle bar on Aliexpress https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073X7227N/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Makes it much easier to store and carry

    New GotWay Nikola 17''

    The Nikola just doest seem like enough of an impressive upgrade to get rid of my Tesla. I still love the Tesla.. Yes, a 3" tire, 56% more battery (nice) -a Silly Inmotion handle, and circus "look at me" lights. uggh. Not a very attractive wheel
  10. Hey, fabulous story and video.. nicely done. I’ll have to join you guys!

    Gotway Monster Received and Oh My God

    I actually feel that I can accelerate faster on my Monster 100v and X in Softer Mode. I thinks its because there in more play (pitch and roll) in the wheel which enables me to have some leverage on the acceleration movement. This also seems to help with braking faster too.

    Gotway Monster Received and Oh My God

    I agree, the 100volt monster is a beast of a wheel and by far runs best in soft mode.

    New GotWay Nikola 17''

    Circus show, certainly doesn't look like an efficient, modern machine.

    Taking aboard your EUC in a bus(NYC

    I’ve had several wheels in NYC on busses, subways, lirr and NJ transit. I’ve only had curiosity from the various conductors, it’s never been an issue. I agree with @houseofjob I think it was just bad luck.

    Is the Inward Bank Angle on the MSX Uncomfortable?

    I really enjoy riding all my wheels with very little contact on the pads. The MSX forces you to make contact on the pads which becomes uncomfortable on your calf. The wheel preforms beautifully with this angle, the problem is it forces you to rub on the pads.
