Lucky and Elderberry, you'll both be experts within 10 minutes. We'll make plans to meet up. 8)

Elderberry and Lucky:
Yes they are self balancing and it’s awesome. Mastering getting on and off of them I think is the toughest part. You still have to watch out for playa puddles and be aware of how fast you are going. If you want to try mine out this year PM me and we can set up a time to meet up.
Thank you very much, I just might. Between Sham and yourself I’ll either break my ass or become a convert and possibly buy one
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

Haha. Ya, I think I'd want to do it later in the week. I don't want to fuck up my whole week should I fall off and break something!

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

Mr. Sham

Do you ride the mini in the real world as well? Can they tackle hills at all or is it all for flat lands?

I’d pick one up for the ranch but it anything but flat out here.

I’m also on the top of the scale weight and size wise of the listed specs ...

I roll around the neighborhood on it to practice using it. I go over bumps, hills and very uneven surfaces. It takes a bit of getting used to---just like riding a bike. It's pretty intuitive to use. I'm not sure of the weight limit, but my guess is 250lbs.

Super cool Sham. I might pick one up to tool around in the farm.
