  1. No on drugs, alcohol on the other hand... I live in Belgium, we have awesome beer, do I need to say more The feeling is...
  2. Ik ben regelmatig te vinden in Hasselt ja
  3. Wie kwam er mij net voorbij rijden aan het dusartplein in Hasselt?
  4. In the Netherlands they dumped a burning hybrid car in a water tank for 24 hours to extinguish it. https://www.autoblog.com/2019/03/26/firefighters-dropped-smoldering-bmw-i8-water-tank/ Maybe your original idea is viable when you design your metal cabinet to act as a water tank. You make a watertight box with an open top (to avoid pressure build up in case of a fire, aka a bomb). Build a water storage tank that goes above it and put a hole in the bottom for a sprinkler head. Preferably a sprinkler head that has a removable diffuser shield so that the water ends up in the box and not everywhere else. Also, make sure you have a good short circuit protection for obvious reasons. So yes, it is possible to build a fire proof charging station for your euc that will even prevent it to reignite. This is just my perspective and I am not responsible for any damage what so ever if anyone tries this out. To be honest I think the risk of an EUC battery fire is greatly exaggerated (you are probably more likely to get killed in a traffic accident while using your EUC than by charging it). But it could be a good idea for an euc rental company or any other company that charges high capacity lithium batteries on a regular basis.
  5. that would be a great service for people like me who travel a lot for there job, I hope you can get it up and running.
  6. Winter riding is great fun. Peoples reactions on seeying you riding in the snow on only one wheel is even funnier than on a nice summer day. Just watch out for black ice, almost invisible to spot, but slippery as hell.Trust me, I have first 'hand' experience with that
  7. Mijn verzekeraar vroeg alleen het serienummer van mijn wiel en de topsnelheid.
  8. Rijden in het donker vind ik juist makkelijker. Ik gok dat het toevallig is maar door de plaatsing van het voorlicht op de V8 vallen oneffenheden juist sterker op in het donker. In plaats van een 'uniform' asfaltgrijs wegdek overdag springen snachts de bulten en putten er uit door ofwel meer licht te vangen ofwel in de schaduw van het licht te vallen. Een beetje zichtbaarheid op de weg zou common sense moeten zijn als zwakke weggebruiker, laat staan als zwakke weggebruiker die de meeste automobilisten nog nooit eerder hebben gezien en sneller dan verwacht door het verkeer gaat.
  9. I got yelled at by a cyclist: "That is not healthy!" while we were driving on a bike path next to the road. I keep wondering what he would scream at the drivers of the cars that were passing by. I don't ride my euc as a workout, neither did I with my bicycle. I just want to get from point A to point B. What's wrong with that?
  10. Wellington is just crazy windy, we had to cancel a few of our stopovers there due to high winds. Sailing a ship with a hotel strapped on the back is kinda tricky when the hotel acts like a giant sail blowing you off course. on topic: if faced with a headwind I just reduce speed, wind from the side I try to deal with by twisting my body to act like a sail if possible. The hardest conditions are strong gusts of wind from the side, that is just training to feel confident on the wheel.
  11. hoera, dan ben ik niet de enige EUCer die de vlaamse ardennen onveilig maakt! Laat maar weten als je in de streek rond oudenaarde eens wil toeren. @ir_fuel, je V8 heeft ondertussen al ruim de kaap van de 2000km overschreden, maar het begint toch stillekes aan te kriebelen voor een wiel met meer snelheid om de grimas van de snellere wielertoeristen hun gezicht te kunnen vegen. En misschien ook wat meer range, want ik doe maandelijks ritjes waarbij ik angstvallig de batterij in de gaten moet houden of zelfs mijn rijstijl(lees snelheid) moet aanpassen.
  12. I do not condemn the actions of a few individuals with criminal intend that ruin the preception for those that are fleeing a war strucken region. Therefor I will not call them 3rd world savages (except of course those aformentioned individuals). On the other hand I would call your qoute about your actions against a dog that acted on instinct without the knowledge of moral constraints very savage and I sincerly hope that you were just trolling. Maybe we should just rename this topic to "how far am I willing to go to take repercussions against humans or animals threathening me of driving my wheel". But to stick to the topic, my faith in humanity has been hurt after reading this.
  13. Research in Belgium about pepper spray will reveal that it is an illegal weapon here. And allthough I have been bitten by a dog while riding my wheel it wouldn't have made a difference, both me and the dog were so startled from each other that the little bastard decided that he would investigate how my leg tasted. It was all over before I even realised what was happening, no way that I could have sprayed him with pepperspray to prevent it from happening. Besides, have you considered that while driving you will most likely have an apparent wind forward of the beam(as sailors would call it) so that you have a pretty decent chance of hitting yourself with the irritating vapour, possibly hindering yourself driving the EUC in a safe manner. You said it yourself, a very minor squirt would take the fight out of any dog or human, would it also incapacitate you in such a way that you can not ensure safe driving for yourself or any bystanders? I will even go as far as to say that I am happy that pepper spray is illegal here(come on you second amendment nutjobs, bring it on). I don't want to get sprayed in the face by someone who doesn't like me driving on the same bicycle path as he is(happened to me and a few other guys here on the forum). Just because he doesn't like me, or just because I get scared of a dog doesn't give anyone the right to use a weapon on another person or animal. I am glad that I live in a country where I don't have to worry about who is wearing a weapon(lethal or not), even in a society where some individuals mean to harm others, because chances are, they don't have weapons either as most of the crimes are opportunistic.
  14. man am I glad to read this, you just made my day! let me know if you need testers for that, I have a huawei watch 2.
  15. I was going to say please go to jack's shack and say hi to topher from me, but I see you are on a different island. Enjoy your stay there
