Segway to end production

Recommended Posts

I always thought the basic idea was sound but the execution was poor. Too expensive, too heavy, too much to go wrong with the gyro, computer, etc. To me a motorized Razor scooter makes more sense. Put bigger wheels on it for extra stability or maybe three wheels

If you have to stand up might as well walk.

Unless your legs are like mine!  7 knee operations later and braces on both to walk I ride when possible.

Take care my friend, do the best you can.  I’m in a wheelchair permanently, it’s not much fun.

I’ve used them several times to explore visiting cities.  Newport, Boston,  Berlin and Carcassonne. Really fantastic. Easy to learn and fun to use. The only problem with them is they make your cheeks hurt.....from smiling so much!

Or make your cheeks hurt from clinching them so tightly when you thought you were going to take a tumble.

The idea of Segways in Carcassonne is pretty revolting - kinda jars the atrmosphere

Interesting. I have not seen one in years. After the post about them, I went up to the post office and some guy rode by me on one.

And the best to you, too, Terry. My sister's been is a wheelchair her whole life so there's a special place in my family's heart for those afflicted with such problems. I've sure enjoyed reading your posts on this forum.
