Questor Posted August 18, 2016 Share Posted August 18, 2016 Hello everyone. I saw my first EUC about two years ago at an "Outdoor Retailer" trade show in Salt Lake City. I was impressed. I liked the concept and wanted to know more. So I started researching and learning all I could about these interesting machines. I quickly discovered the wealth of information that is here in the Electric Unicycle Forum, and have been busy lurking for a little over a year now, learning about the different models and peoples experiences with them and the learning process and watching all the videos. Then, earlier this week, I saw an interesting EUC on E-bay. I made a low offer, and they accepted! So yesterday, a Huanxi H2 was delivered to my house. I was a bit nervous, because I had read how difficult it can be for some people to learn to ride these. But after about 20 minutes, I was able to do short laps around my back yard. So I re-charged the EUC, and had a victory beer. Later, when the EUC was charged up again, I practiced for about another 30 minutes, and was able to do small circles and occasionally get on the EUC without holding on to anything. I was ecstatic! So plugged the EUC in again to top off the battery and had another beer in celebration,. By now it's about 7:30 at night and It's finally beginning to cool off here in Southern California, so I decide to take a lap of my neighborhood, and down to the park near where I live. I hop on the EUC, and head down the street. The next thing I know, I'm smoothly gliding down the street like this is the most natural thing to do. But then the EUC starts beeping at me, warning me that we are at top speed, and I feel the pedals tilting back. Really? I'm riding at top speed on day one? I continue to ride, circumnavigating the park enjoying the new experience. Then the EUC begins to start tiling back and it's loosing speed. I realize I've already ridden about three miles, and the battery must be getting low. I slowly ride home and make it before the battery dies completely. What a great first day! Needless to say, I'm hooked, and am now looking for a bigger and better wheel. So I'd like to thank everyone on this forum for your posts, your information and for helping me get into this cool new sport. Q~ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
