MIA Forum Members Where Are They Now?

Okay what's the scoop on these members who have gone missing?  Have they wisely given up riding these one wheeled death and injury traps, or have they just moved on to greener pastures and other less hazardous activities?  Can we now talk freely about them behind their backs and air out their dirty laundry?  Feel free to add names to the list of the lost but not forgotten... :efee8c29ce:.  Lest we forget our fellow EUC brethren and sisthren.

If you do not show up and reply to this post, I will have to officially close my detailed files on you, and the smack talk shall begin.  :whistling:

@The Fat Unicyclist - long time rider, addictive Pineapple Lumps candy pusher, New Zealand's best known Xima Lhotz rider

@Cloud - moderator extraordinaire, KingSong maniac, bursitis sufferer, where ya be man?  My psychic summoning powers have been defeated.

@Carlos E Rodriguez - rubber of people the wrong way master, face planter perfectionist, here everyday then suddenly gone forever...

@HEC - most annoying avatar member, smart as heck, thought you were a dude all this time until I visited your info page, gone way too soon, we miss you.

@Greg Spalding - pediatrian with the most unusual fashion sense, jumping on the EUC bandwagon like an unstoppable madman, was looking forward to the ride learning progress notes, never to be seen again.

@thefork - Swedish V5 rider master, relative of "thespoon," uncanny twin look-alike to the host dude of The Amazing Race Canada.

@nomad - spectacular Msuper crash survivor.  Thought you were in it for the long haul, where did you go?

@freetheoranges - dead ringer for "Sylar" from "Heroes," strange frequenter of the Discord chat and only the Discord chat, never quite understood your username meaning.

@John Eucist - I swore I thought Eucist was your real last name until it dawned on me, felt stupid about that for a while, but then I came to my senses.  Are the collections of various EUCs now collecting dust?  What happened to the one wheeled passion man?

Who am I missing?

@Carlos E Rodriguez was an EE I think. Perhaps a bit opinionated, but not everyone is saintly.

You failed to mention @SuperSport who, though making a cameo appearance from time to time, seems to have outgrown us and left the nest.

Let's start by crossing this Fat Unicyclist off that list, because I'm back! 

Following my most awesome trip, unicycling in California, Western Australia and Singapore, I returned home to a backlog of chaos, and an election to run - well not quite run it, but I was involved enough to be frantically busy for the duration. 

I kept up with things enough to hear about the official announcement of the KS18L, and to be disappointed that the battery isn't larger... but then again, maybe if I wait...

So thanks for thinking of me everyone, missing me @Hunka Hunka Burning Love and even spying on me @Keith!

Now I'm going to get noisy again, and hopefully finally decide on the new wheel(s) I'm going to buy. 

Glad you're back! So, did you support the winning team back home?

There's @Dingfelder who Bought an MSuper then had all sorts of EUCs and physical problems, then dropped off.

Yea, a few times I considered PMing (because that sends a mail). So happy and excited about the wheel (and he needed that from the other stuff he told!) and then, gone. Hm.

The French forums (espritroue) kind of parallel this one, so that can be our backup in the worst case:efee47c9c8: They'll surely give us an English language section should the unthinkable happen.

And there's this very inactive subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/ElectricUnicycle/ . Looking at it, I guess we should spam some links to this forum there - they're recommending Ninebots and Solowheels there:shock2:

My theory is that posters recognize how addictive EUCs are to purchase and don't post in order to avoid falling into that temptation. 

Also, some recognize their addiction to the forums and wean themselves out more or less forcefully... like @hobby16  ;)

I still love coming around here and annoying people with low-quality posts, but I've been busy moving the past couple of months. So now I have an old house with stuff that needs to be fixed before we can sell, plus a new house with about a million chores to do like set up my work bench and office, fix all the stuff that's broken in the house, put in new shelving, install home automation system, etc.

On the upside I met someone just down the street who wanted to learn the EUC so I loaned him my old generic 14 inch wheel. so now I only have two wheels, guess it's time to buy another one but I'll wait until spring when the weather is better and my wife isn't watching.

Hi @litewave, I hope you have been well 

This was actually a fascinating election... and in the end the party that had the largest portion of the vote has become the opposition (with a three way coalition taking control). 

Fortunately the difference between our left and right wing parties is about 2.5 degrees. So life carries on pretty much the same.

Guess I'll have to throw away most of the old tables... :P 

Time to knock down that exterior wall and make an addition to the house!

@The Fat Unicyclist We are still waiting for the Western Oz and Singapore trip report! Did you lounge in the Sky pool at the Marina Bay Sands?  How was the Wheelies group ride??  :w00t2:  Spill the beans man!

Props go to @who_the :w00t2:.  Probably not the way I would have demonstrated how to ride an EUC, but hey go for it man!  :lol:  Get right down in that business!

I adjusted my teaching technique for obvious reasons. Gotta take one for the team sometimes.
