Sorry guys I had text that was not shown on my last post.

" Bwahhh, I have to start with pics first ;)

Thank you for the warm welcome!"

Novazeus, you beat me to 64. Late april.

Marty, I do juggle too!

Maybe we will soon duo backwards!

Will post video but my 120g SD card is being scanned for recovery :( at the moment and don't want to hijack a thread...

 

 

i know i’m not the oldest. i’ve seen somebody like 70 or 80.

@pico like when my youngs gfs would say “ur so old” and i’d say “beats the alternative”, right?

64 in December for me.  No young "gfs".

 

Ur better off. Traded mine in on Bob. Much much better. Perfect.

Guess nobody pays attention to segway's aging us out. 

In this politically correct world, I'd hate to think I'd have to linger outside @Jason McNeil store and get a kid to go inside and buy a wheel for me.

Thanks, unfortunately for us we had access to the court for only a month. Hopefully we will be able to resume in April.

Sure for friend, Aries always get along fine :)

I am not on fb or any other similar media though.

Hijacking a thread is WHAT WE DO BEST.  No thread survives intact after about 6 posts.  That's why it's so hard to find anything; it's always buried in a completely different subject. :facepalm:

so smoother. do you think i should donate my euc to charity?   (totally not hijaked)

Probably a compatibility/config thing... I use Firefox here

Video worked for me.  Backwards riding, impressive, nice Neil Youg track too.  @Marty Backe maybe you should wobble your finger a bit when clicking it.  I know wobble works for me. :D

If his shop is near a liquor store you could make it mutually beneficial...  :cheers:

I know there must be older. I am 65 in August, just a few weeks from now.

9b1 c+. 950 miles.

I go slower than anyone else from what I can tell. And happy to do so. It's not because I'm an old fart. 

I've read, studied and dissected most all the failure, accident and fall posts.

First, I went out and bought helmet, full pad gear. Then I have quit pushing the tilt back monster. I have lowerd (thats correct...not raised) my cruising speed.

10 or 11mph to be honest. I now go up any medium hills at walking pace and slow for most bumps.

I want to enjoy my euc days for the longest foreseeable future.

I have done all that other stuff skateboards, kayaking, unicycling, biking, motorcycles, scuba, hanggliding.

I want to enjoy many years more settled down on Flying down the warm shady bike trail.

I've got 5 pretty good falls under my belt. All of them while learning and under 1mph. 2 twisted backs (1 a week in bed) and 1 broken rib. Was riding the next day... cant help myself. Luckily I know YOU guys understand.

I have 3 points I'd like to leave for a Newbie...

Search out and Read all the Accident posts. It will save your life.

There is nothing wrong or unpleasureable with slowing down. Speed kills.

Forget everything else, learn on a Shopping Cart.

I hope to be humble enough and smart enough to enjoy our wonderful miraculous sport to at least 70.

I love it.

RE: the wizard,

your posting is spot on.  basically,  the 'desire' is to extend you enjoyment of all things fascinating for as long as you can.

live long, and ride as far as you can !!!
