In the meantime, I'm going to use it for short errands, visiting friends, and exploring neighborhoods of Chicago that I'd otherwise probably never visit in a car. It'll be a great way to get to know my city and its people in a whole new way. We'll put it in the back of the car when we're camping, or just visiting state parks for a day. I've often been on hiking trails and wondered ... if I'd had just a little more time, what I might see around that next bend. I may use it to find an out-of-the-way fishing hole. As time goes on, I'm sure I'll find all sorts of neat applications. I can't wait! "

Right now, I use the HT primarily as a gadget... I live 60 miles from work, so it's kind of impossible to commute on it, but I do use it at work to run down to get lunch or go over to the store. I've shown probably 60 or 70 people how to use the thing and am factory-trained, including how to train others. I will shortly be putting up my Segway page at the link below (but it

However his guest Joseph Jacobs knew about them. Segway had demo rides in San Diego. I stayed around most of the day and kept asking for more rides. The Segway people were very gracious in putting up with me all day. I am excited about getting delivery of my own Segway. Has anyone developed a sport that would be played on the Segway? Does anyone know how many Segways will delivered the first week of March?

I am a new owner of the XT here in Walnut Creek Ca. I use mine for fun and to do local errands. I want to play polo if I can learn to ride well enough. I don't know any other owners and I have no way of finding any. I also wanted to know about routine repairs. What usually goes wrong and what is the usual fix? Are there any regular events scheduled in my area? Polo seems like a great idea, but isn't Segway hockey more appropriate? Are there any plans in the works to have the new batteries last even longer and be less expensive? In general, I want to know what to expect as my "horse" ages. Thanks. DPK

Just got two i-180 recently from Jared (JaredHT, SEGWAY of Ohio - http://www.segwayofohio.net) including accessories and those new LED lights. His passion, expertise, professionalism, pricing and super fast shipping made the difference!!!

Have been using these to glide into work and running short errand trips around the Boston downtown area with the significant other. Definitely the best way to travel around in congested traffic areas. Winter is coming and I look forward to trying them out in the snow (with extra traction tires of course!) :-)

My Segway arrived yesterday (i170) and I had today my inaugural run; TOTALLY and PHENOMENALLY brilliant!
I had a bit of a practise on nice flat concrete area and then joined all my family (including the dogs) on a mile long country walk long a farm track. Incidentally I can see the value of getting one of those comfort mats as on rough terrain you are are a trifle knackered!
ABSOLUTELY SUPERB! My little one said "Mummy you've never been this far with us before and now you can come out with us all the time, and you haven't got your sore hip (I have osteo arthritis) AND you can even take me out on my bicycle!"
It made every single penny and all the effort worthwhile!
Even my husband (who knew nothing of my purchase until it arrived!) was mightily impressed and took to it like the proverbial duck to water. He isn't looking forward to the credit card bill arriving though.
I am a very happy and lucky lady. Thank God (or Dog if you are dyslexic!) we live in an era of inventors and entrepreneurs.
Forget my aspiration to fly with the birds; Segway has to be more fun!
My thanks to everyone who has emailed words of encouragement and advice.
My biggest thanks of course to the chap who sold me his nearly new Segway at quite a reasonable price.
He modestly wants to remain annonymous but I am SO grateful to him; take a bow - YOU know who you are!
Gaye
PS My daughter likes everything to have names and so my Segway is now Harriet the Chariot!


Gliding, like cleanliness, is close to godliness!

Initial charge about done on my new i180, which I am eager to try out as soon as the morning fog lifts here North of Boston.

I will be using the Segway to help deal with my inability to walk very far, and already I am confident it will help with my balance due to my partially numb feet.
