Catlord17 Posted July 11, 2017 Share Posted July 11, 2017 I'm making my first post here, but I have been reading this forum for 2 or 3 months now. I discovered electric unicycles after I discovered (and purchased) a hoverboard. I had a 10 inch one, good high end, and I used it to commute around my city, as well as for stress relief and fun. It had a 12 mile range, and a top comfortable cruising speed of 8 to 9 mph once I got good with it. One time, I tried to push it to the max while using GPS to clock my speed, and I managed 12 mph before I lost control and had to step off, which resulted in me running the fastest I have ever run to avoid face planting. I did not do that again. Not a month later, it snapped in half while I was trying to learn to ride it off curbs. When I started looking to replace it, I discovered EUCs. They make more sense in a lot of ways, so I started started doing research. This led me to want to purchase one, but for a while, I had to spend my money in other directions (new computer, new car, house repairs) first and then save up. When I found myself with enough money I purchased a GotWay MSuper V3s+. The three I was choosing from were the KS18s, MSuper V3s+ and Monster. Monster seemed a bit much... and Jason @ eWheels advised me that I "probably wanted the MSuper" when I asked which he would recommend. Fortunately the firmware has been fixed during the various delays since I was able to pay him (bank spent a week thinking about my CC purchase before releasing the funds, then Jason apparently had inventory delays). I just got a notice that the shipping label has been created, so I figured... it's time to sign up and say hello. Hello! I know buying an MSuper V3s+ may not have been something that many of you would probably have advised for someone who has never ridden an EUC before, but the way I tend to approach things is... research what fits your needs and will last and genuinely make you happy. Then buy it... then meet whatever challenge learning how to use it presents, and master it. I have come to the conclusion through experience in my life that I can do anything, as long as I set my mind to it and persevere. This will be an enjoyable challenge, just as was learning to ride the hoverboard. The rewards will be long term, since EUCs have a future and are going to doubtless grow in popularity and commonality. Knowing me, I will also eventually have to have a KS18s (or better) and a Monster (or better). As far as I know, I will probably be the only person in my city with one of these devices for quite some time. Some day (hopefully soon) I will be good enough to join some of the closer of you for group rides. And to all of you who have been so kind and generous with your time and wisdom to post videos, I have watched them, and appreciated and enjoyed them. Thank you for the information, entertainment and the pleasure of coming to know you a little better. Perhaps my chance to post videos will come some day. So any advice for going from 0 to MsuperV3s+? By the way, here's an interesting thing... shipping label created on the 10th, in Cali. Supposed to arrive by FedEx Ground on the 11th in Florida. Ummm.... does this mean they have trucks doing 126 mph for 23.97 hours a day? Or is this being shipped by air? Hmmmmm. Okay, I'll stop talking now.
