Oily Posted November 15, 2015 Share Posted November 15, 2015 Hi, I acquired my first EUC last week after a lot of discussion at work about them. I wasn't going to go & spend a fortune & then not get on with it, but found a friend who had the same dilemma & had bought a £250 ebay special to see how he would get on. After a month of frustration he gave up so "loaned" me his EUC. It arrived 10 days ago & I was like a kid at Christmas (I'm 37)..... First night was a full charge used up in the house on the leaner wheels & with the strap attached - all went fine ! 2nd night I gave it a rest as my legs were still killing me ! Weekend saw no play time as family commitments got in the way. Randomly during last week I was practising round the house with no learner wheels but with the strap still on. I FINALLY found a Dutch video on Thursday which showed up to get on the EUC which made sense, so yesterday was my first trip outside at my in-laws as they have a long private drive with a fence on 1 side - and SUCCESS, not only could I get on, but I could stay upright & just about turn round at either end. This morning I took the bull by the horns, and racked up 3 miles round my local estate taking in drop kerbs, some hard packed mud/gravel footpaths & a lot of wobbling. This afternoon I was out again & even stopped at the local supermarket to collect a loaf of bread - another 3.5 miles with the local "youths" commenting that I was "sick" !!!! Now, I know that it's a cheap Chinese model, but after 3.5 miles, I was down to my last battery light - I'm not small (6ft & 92kgs), but I was expecting a few more miles for my charge - am I just expecting too much ? Overall I am absolutely loving it & surprised how quickly I've managed to get up to speed ! I work in London doing IT & have to go from client site to site which is no more than 2.5 miles, so this week will see me hitting the streets of London !
