how to enjoy riding slow speeds?

Recommended Posts

when i first got a euc i trained and then i got comfortable and used plenty of time to train turning skills and other important skills. to not faal off

then i started exploring the +30kph speeds. and got faster and faster

and then i ended up feeling the need to ride fast. but trying to just go slower instead and not speed everytime

and after my first fall i feel like slowing down. but generally i feel the urge to speed up

i dont speed up. but its not as enjoyable (its worth it compared to falling and smashing your wheel at 45kph)

but does anyone know any tips or anything to think or do when riding to ride slower without compromising on fun?

To enjoy going slow challenge yourself with more maneuvers like tight turns, 360s, ride backwards, try idling back and forth, ride with one leg on both sides of the wheel, there are tons of slow speed things to keep you challenged and entertained 

i will, im trying to find out the backwards riding. but my body doesnt seem like cooperating, but i will just keep trying until i can 

i usually (at lower speeds) rock from side to side and make some very sharp turns

but you said "tons of things to keep me entairtained" so far i have seen turning, 360 backwards, and one leg..

You're making me think that a smaller, 14" wheel might be more enjoyable for those slow speeds. As a 14" wheel owner I lust for a bigger, more powerful wheel like your Tesla, but I suppose I should enjoy the possibly superior slow speed enjoyment factor.

I'm really reaching, if you can't tell :rolleyes:.

They say the 10" MTen3 is also wonderfully fun for dinking around at slow speeds. 

You could also try more challenging trail riding when the ground thaws, or even more snow riding right now.

Absolutely.  It is a fun fun wheel.  In could weather I'll sometime dink around on it inside garage (1/2 of 2-car garage).

i also tried a ks14 in a group ride and for me it didnt feel like more enjoyment.. its just as soon you pick up speed its maxed out

i mean the less stable it is the more you can feel the speed but just rocking gently from side to side with my tesla makes it feel the same way kind of

practise and it will come...

 

That was my suggestion for having fun while riding slow. Did you understand that? Sometimes I don't really get where you're coming from, man.

Это раннее утро, солнце выходит Прошлая ночь дрожала и довольно громко Моя кошка мурлычет, она царапает мою кожу Так что же случилось с другим грехом? Сука голодна, ей нужно сказать Так дайте ей дюймы и кормите ее хорошо Еще несколько дней, новые места Я должен уйти, пришло время для шоу

 

:D

I bring a good book or do some crochet to maintain the fun level while riding slow.  There's nothing more fun or rewarding than to complete a new cat scarf while riding.

Honestly though, while riding fast is a adrenaline rush, minimizing the risk of injury is more important to me.  So I just try to tune in and enjoy my surroundings more.  Carving on the EUC can help wake up the brain a bit if it becomes too monotonous.  I travel about the same speed as I go when I'm riding my bike (18-20mph) and I'm perfectly fine with that. 

i do like the rush at high speed but after time i feel weirdly enough that i enjoy riding slowly too

but the tesla is simply too easy to go fast on imagine being in a ferari and having a very big road.. almost impossible not to go fast..

thats my problem but i just routine remind myself that a little bump and i can go flying at high speed.
