Lot of us had face plants in this forum. New and experienced. Some of them got seriously injured. I'm wondering if all of them recovered well and riding again. Generally we get posts soon after the unfortunate incidents but after that we don't hear from them again. I'm just curious to know if they still love EUCs.
Today my new V8 (two weeks) cut out under me when I made a strong backward acceleration out of idling (at very low speed). I could feel the pedals giving in and then it apparently switched off. That's how it felt and that's what it was when I picked it up: off. That has never happened with my old V8 bought in 2016, so I wonder whether the firmware changed or whether I was so much gentler these good old days.
On my way to work today my KS14d dropped me twice ! The first time was very minor . Low speed coming off my patio. Took a ~3” ledge at maybe 5mph and boom . The wheel lost its balance , fell forward and tossed me off . I picked it up and it righted it self immediately. Thinking it was a fluke or that maybe I hit a divot or something I continued on to work . Going ~15mph on a slight down hill I encountered another small dip . I was ejected forward again , this time hitting the pavement HARD!! . My lip is swollen like a golf ball. Ribs bruised . It’s bad ! Again picked up the wheel and it again righted itself immediately. I limped very very slowly to work . Battery was full and I wasn’t at max speed btw.
