Remind me why a KS 18XL is worth the price...

It took me years to learn, I bought my first wheel back in Jan 2014, thought it was impossible to learn.  It wasn’t until 2017 where I had the resolve to learn it after watching all the learning videos out there.   Wasn’t months, it was years for me. I just didn’t understand the learning process back then. Now I know I can learn anything, just need practice and time.  The brain is amazing.  

Then how long did learning a wheel take you, if we exclude downtime? Like actual minutes with hands/feet on. I did know you took around 4 or 5 hours with a mechanical unicycle, where most people take 15 hours, so I'm guessing it took perhaps 40 minutes actual time.

2 to 4 hours seems average for people learning alone.

For me, riding through the gas station every day while everyone looks at me wizz by is worth it. :)

Took me when I really put some effort a few sessions of 15-30 minutes.  I would say 2 hours at most to learn going forward.  The "click".  But as you know every little thing requires learning.  So I spent the next two month riding and learning everything from turning to backwards and then seated riding.  I immediately bought a Ninebot One C+ after I clicked.  Used that for about a month before I got the KS16 and then shortly after a 18S.
