Looking to buy high payload EUC, like Inmotion V8, London

I think the V8 will be too weak for your weight with only a 800W motor. Range may also be very limited. You should look at a KS16S instead which has 50% more motor power and a larger battery. It will be a little more expensive but I think you risk exceeding the V8s ability and taking a fall.

The cold spell had just passed. Currently 27 and sunny in Tampa. Welcome. 

Weren't you on the verge of moving to the UK at one point? If not, great!

The longer I remain here the more disillusioned I become with this depressing country

My wife is from the US and we are in the UK, thankfully when we met there weren't the stupid rules about foreign spouses (mid 90s). It was still a bit of an endurance test to get here here though, which included the home office loosing our file with all of our documents for a couple of months. Useless idiots. 

Im so pissed off about Brexit that we have been investigating our ancestors to see if we could qualify for an EU passport. Luckily my wife mother is german so she could get a german passport as well. In 4 years when  the kids are through school we could clear off to europe as the standard of living and general quality of life is so much better in northern europe than here. 

Not sure what i could do but if there is anything we can do to help pls let me know. We are near Basingstoke, north of Winchester.

Of course, the 'cold spell' he mentioned lasted about a week and only applied to night-time weather...

Luckily, I was in Miami at the time and avoided the big 'chill'. :P

We met in 08 and had to decide which country to live in first. We picked the US. By the time we got here the economy had crashed and I spent 18 months looking for for work. Ended up going to college to diversify into programming. Then in 11 or 12 they added the rules for UK immigration making it much harder to return. If we had done the UK first things would have been much (well a little) easier. Oh well. 

Thanks for the offer to help. Short of a programming job paying a living wage or a 6 month loan of 65k to keep immigration happy there is little anyone can do to help. 

Ditto on Brexit. Didn't see that coming. What's even more annoying is I won't be able to vote for much longer either.

Honestly, if not for my parents I think I'd be looking at New Zealand.

Better hurry if that is your back-up plan. The new coalition government has promised to reduce the immigration quota by 30,000

New Zealand is still a great place in many respects, but like other countries, it, too, has become increasingly resentful (even hostile) towards immigration.

@Scully in Clevedon has a 1600wh MSuper for sale as of Oct 22nd he still has it.

And here is a Kingsong 14D in London  

 

Wow, I go away for the weekend and the thread takes on a life of its own. 

£1200 is really double what I want to spend.  @Scully, its a long way off, I know, but PM me if you  would accept £600 (my max budget)

Looking at the stats, (and bear with me as I am a newbie, )I don't think the KS14D and KS18AY are powerful enough.

@Paddylaz, you saw me ride, what is your opinion.

At which stats did you look? ;-)

The KS18AY is one of the most powerful wheels available...in fact for a high payload like 130kg the only wheels i would accept are -> KS18AY, KS18S and GW V3s+....use no other wheels, please, they are not designed for 130kg+!!

So if you are not able to pay the V3s+....definitly contact @Lukas83....as this is one of the few opportunitys to snap such a powerfull wheel for this less Money!

KS18 & 14d are great wheels, I know the guy who is selling the 14d. It's faster than mine and has a more powerful motor but range is slightly lower.

At 130kg, especially if you're also going to have a bag/gear etc, you might find most of these wheels lacking in the power you want, but certainly multiple steps up from the Airwheel.

If @Ajss_1 is still selling the 14d, I'd definitely go with that for the money. But you won't be getting anywhere near the advertised range of 40km ?

For the record there's a chance I'm going to be selling my wheel too in a few weeks, so you've got that as a possible option as well

The 14D is only a 800w motor, which the consensus seems to say is too small for me.  You and @KingSong69 are suggesting the KS18 so might contact @Lukas83 to see if he will come down to my price range.  One thing I am concerned about is that it weighs 55lbs, so is a beast, but does not seem to have a carry handle the way the InMotion does.

I agree,  I can't expect it to be lighter. 

It's too bad, as the V8 you recommended, was affordable and portable, but I don't want to be under powered.

Maybe I can attach a handle. Have messaged @Lukas83 so will see if we can get to a price that I can afford.

Best option is to lose weight:efee47c9c8: Sorry if this isn't helpful, but it's the truth.

EUCs are very weight sensitive, and you'll get amazing range improvements from lower weights. And all the options are open too you.

I also think the 18 inch Kingsongs are the only real options for now, but even for them 130kg is borderline too much weight. No idea what happens if you brake sharply.
