The Attention Thread


Recommended Posts

The grammar might be on me LOL. 

  "HEY THERE'S THAT GUY ON THAT THING" reminds me that the other day I heard behind me "HOLY SHIT, IT'S ONE OF THOSE". The one I heard probably sounds better.:D

That's it. I am going to wear a facem ask like this everytime I ride from now on. I am already getting the maximum attention so I don't care more. Hopefully I will get less interaction while others are busy choosing which part of me to look at(that's so weird to say lol). At least it shows that I don't want to talk, plus it looks cool.

Lol. I think it's funny that people get angry at EUCs. I can't imagine why anyone would care. Only positive stuff here. But most people here like one outdoor activity or an other. Maybe that's why.

It's because people think that 1, their opinion count, and 2, the person they are expressing it about should hear it.  Mostly, they are wrong on both counts.

I'm not sure that will stop unwanted comments.  Might even invite more

Is wearing a face mask bad or something? 

I don't think so, and i was thinking about one for when the weather is not so hot

No, but if your not in China or Tokyo, you will look even more out of place, and give the Opinionators ( I made that word up) something else to opine about.

Warning, wearing a mask is not a good idea people! Now, I have to watch out for the high fives people are giving me and I feel bad if I miss one.

Really in Seattle?

Up here in Vancouver mostly positive comments, had a bunch of people ask me if it's hard to learn. Kids love this thing too!

It would suck to be in an area where people are mean :(

There are actually a large number of people in Seattle that wear black or white masks like that. Nothing like in China but noticeable.   

@tata However I would recommend a full face helmet :) mostly for safety but also serves to cover your face. I personally wear a Fox Proframe I picked up at Evo over in Fremont. 

It’s surprising and scary the amount of EUC’rs I come across in Seattle without any head or other protection. :( 

Also @tata If you want to do some riding around Seattle with another euc’r shoot me a pm. I have been doing a evening ride after work almost every day since its been nice out. Couple of group rides on Saturdays as well.

@prasket Maybe I will get one some day when I get my 16X and ready to go on the road with cars which might never happen. Right now I will just chicken out on my sidewalks with my little wheel.

Like everyone, I've had numerous comments but two seem to stick out.  

Stopped at a light, a guy on the corner says be very careful, I had one of those until I had a massive fall. He pulls up his shirt and you can see surgical scars across his left shoulder.  Sobering. 

The second was a beautiful women that saw me trollying in the grocery store.  She said that she's seen me around and was happy to finally meet me. Small talk briefly before checking out.  I'm a happily married man, otherwise that would have been a great start!

I have a scar from tripping and falling while walking once. Its why i got an EUC. To avoid that deathsport. 

That's so true.  I was walking (argh!) with a friend through a park in Barcelona (gravel path)  She tripped over a raised man hole cover.  Went down like a sack of potatoes hurled off a truck.  She had more cuts and bruises (and gravel stuck in her palms) than I've ever had falling off an EUC.  Aother female friend was attending an event in a long evening gown.  Caught her heel in her dress, same potato sack scenario.  Another female friend tripped over a raised garden path, did a full on face plant.  People really do go down hard when walking is interrupted even momentarily. Silly girls should have worn wrist guards to do that "death sport"

 

Oops, thread derailed, again.
