    What's next for InMotion EUC? You tell me

    Hi, Thanks for asking!! Unfortunately, I have never ride an Inmotion (but I hope for the opportunity) so my wishes rely on over three thousand kilometers experience of driving with an another brand during the summer: THE SHELL. I like simple and funtional designs and instead of a complicated light play on the sides of the shell, I would prefer two headlamps forwards. One LED light with less power for riding in the city and the other LED light as a remote light, strong enough for an safe traveling in the countryside or offroad. Weather Resistant. In fact, it may start to rain or snow when we are outdoors. You can not always count on the weather forecast, not even for the next hour. It would also be good with a second port to load the wheel in the car as well. Then it would be possible to charge the wheel if we want to travel long distances in areas where there is not possible to find a place for "normal" charging. THE WHEEL. I wish a tire of such a dimension that it would be easier for us to find new tires when it's time to replace it with a new one. It also needs to be of such a size that you can purchase a stud tire for winter time riding. 18'' - 20''. CAPACITY. Many countries have regulated the maximum speed of this type of vehicle at 20-25 km / h, so it does not have to be a Formula1 EUC. As insured, the maximum speed in many countries is 30-50 km / h. Personally, I wish that it would be possible to ride at these speeds at least 90 km / charge. Regards Carl

    POLL: What tire pressure do you prefer to ride at?

    If I use a tyre of thicker and steady rubber material, I use the minimum pressure recommended by the manufacturer. If the tyre is manufactured in Europe, the side walls are very thin and the tyre may collapse in sharp maneuvers at high speed, if low pressure is used. So in my current "Schwalbe Mad Mike" tyre I use the recommended maximum pressure. It has worked so well that I have ordered a new one that will be assembled when the first snow comes.

    Your Proudest EUC Moments!

    The problem with the youth today is that they look so old (older people look so young (especially if they are riding an EUC)). But I think they were aged between 16-18 years. So I did not take the helmet off me, in that case they would be scared and say: Oh no, it's someone's grandfather!

    Your Proudest EUC Moments!

    I was riding to my destination, the Museum of Maritime History in the city of Kotka Finland. Then I saw two athletic youngsters who showed up their skate board tricks to a group of young girls. The boys had naked upper bodies and I had all my safety gears on me + an fullface helmet. So I stopped for a couple of seconds beside them and did some quick pirouettes to both right and left with my KingSong. The girls started screaming "look at that guy, look at that guy, he looks really cool!" The athletes looked at each other and one of them said "Oh no! I've had enough, let's go home!"

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Good work, I really like this video! Bon travail, j'aime beaucoup cette vidéo! Kind regards from Finland
  6. There were three drunk men sitting on a park bench when I rode by (in the city of Kotka, Finland). They looked at each other, then looked at the whiskey bottle and started laughing loudly . Next the bottle went a round again and they seemed to be happy with the liquid.

    I have not received a response from GoPro yet about what can cause this issue. They have earlier made the decision to replace it without reparing. I only use original GoPro parts and the temperature outside was below 20 ° C (68 ° F). Shooting 1080 p 60 f / s. The camera body became so hot that it could not hold it. The battery (GoPro) was emptied of power in five minutes. When it was cooled, I had to drill a hole in the battery (GoPro) and pull it out with a screw. New batteries (GoPro) can not be insert to the camera any more. Batteries fits perfectly in Hero 5 Black. So it will be interesting to see what they find wrong in my unit and they have promiced to give answers within three weeks. YouTube search: gopro hero 6 overheating

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Zhiyun seems to be a very good gimbal. The biggest advantage is that it can be used with many different cameras. Another advantage is that you can use an external microphone with it. Yesterday I tested my GoPro Karma grip. It also worked perfectly, but if you do audio recording, there will be a lot of noise from the gimbal engine as well. Karma is loud and at some angles it starts to shake. So I think Zhiyun can be a good investment for video recorders. Gopro Hero 6 Black camera has a good electronic image stabilization system, one of the best I've tried so far. Perfect for video captures. However, it has overheating problems and yesterday I sent my unit back to GoPro service in Sweden. May see if they now replace it for a new one for the third time. Sinikka is one of the most common names for women here in Finland. On the web, I saw that the world's first completely painless surgery was done at Boston Hospital .

    No stabilizer is needed. The heavier the tool is, the easier it is to film stable. For the video I only used a rubber band for all shots. But with an electric unicycle is it different, and I'll show in the next "behind the scenes" video (later on) how I use the rubber band with lighter gears. Can be good knowledge for those who do not want to invest in a new camera. Welcome to the Finnish riders group

    Thank you for your kind comment @Bob Eisenman. National Geographic is so famous in this part of the world too that it's like a top prize to be discovered by them. Here at the forum it is a litle bit more difficult . Today I have been outdoors trying new tools for my next EUC video (will be published later with the first one). I make a "behind the scenes" video to give you a detailed information on how to get the best audio and image quality while riding. See ya! Greetings from Finland.

    I'm glad to spend my time watching this review . This was a very informative video and now I hope that the manufacturer will listen to you too. Thank you for a good video, very nice!

    Finnish riders - Suomalaiset ajajat

    Kiitos kysymyksestä. Olen ajanut Mad Mikella 2500 km ja en voi sanoa, että se on vielä kulunut. Sen voi muuten myös nastoittaa.

    Finnish riders - Suomalaiset ajajat

    Olen omaan pyörään asentanut Schwalbe Mad Mike 16" leveys 2.125" renkaan. Ja olen valtavan tyytyväinen ratkaisuun koska ei mikään alusta tunnu enää liukkaalta. Yksi huono puoli toki löytyy. Schwalben seinämät on huomattavasti ohuempia verrattuna Kendaan, joten mukava kyyti saksalaisella kumilla vaatii aika kovan paineen. Alhainen paine voi aiheuttaa muljahtamisen tai se tuntuu melkein siltä, että rengas lähtee irti vanteelta. Kolmen baarin paine ja mikään ei pysäytä menoa. Terveiset Kotkasta

    Yes I agree with you @Marcglider. But if we look further at my comment, I do not talk about KS in general. The comment applies only to one device, that wheel I'm riding. So if this wheel is of a low standard, it's obvious that I will change the brand next time I buy a new one. It's great that we have this forum and all YouTube videos. The interest is increasing to make our best for a greener environment. So today the EUC market are growing here in Finland also, and it is possible to test ride more new models in Helsinki than it was for 6 months ago. Thank you for your comment, I appreciate your post .
