I work at the Melbourne Cricket Club a couple times a year, unfortunately I can't bring my wheel with me.  Would love to ride when I am in town if I could rent a wheel.

I'm on a KS-16S. Mostly around the central suburbs, sometimes ride north as far as Coburg.

I have a Ninebot one S2 and INMOTION V10F and in a few weeks hopefully I’ll have a Gotway MSX

im in the northern suburbs and usually ride the creek trails all the way from the Airport to the city and out either side

happy to meet up with anyone for a ride and even bring along the ONE S2 if you can ride but haven’t got a wheel

im no pro but I can ride ok

im still not bored riding by myself, but it’d be great to ride with others

A couple months ago I was stopped by the cops while riding very sedately on an otherwise empty sidewalk on Smith St. in Fitzroy. They declined to give me a ticket but were emphatic that the only place in Victoria that it was possible to ride EUC legally was on private property.

I did my best to read the actual legal code and it looks to me as if they weren't actually right, since the rules that might otherwise apply are defined in terms of the number of wheels on the vehicle, and nothing covers a vehicle with a single wheel. This is not advice to argue with cops on the street, but a lawyer mate of mine said he'd do some research....

Maybe try attaching a small caster wheel to the front, and if you're stopped turn off the EUC and set it down on the small front wheel and just tell the cops you were just popping a wheelie.  All the time.  :whistling:  Or is it written specifically in the law that all wheels must be used in motion at all times?

I am not a cop but simple google search came across this info from Vic Roads.  Certainly Vic Roads don't think it's legal.
