GlideRealtor OOPs, I've done some gliding in snow and rain and had no problem with the tires traction what so ever. Snow tires would not hurt though. Chains would not work on the Seg unless you want to shred your fenders.

How about snow chains for the segway? Or perhaps snow tires for the segeay? Is it really that important. Let me know. And to think ... I am in Southern California Can owners change out tires for different wheather conditions and should Segway LLC consider this situation?

How about a nightlight attachment for those who travel in the evening. Perhaps the fenders on the wheels could use a simple red light attachment directed to the rear each side of the transporter to let people know the unit is on the road. Great for Street driving.

Lets say you loose your key to start the personal transporter... a simple land based call or cell call to "on Star system" which is currently used in all GM cars would be a great advantage to re activate your Segway till you got home to get another key. It would be smart to contract with that company for the service and have the service programed into the current software. Are you listening Dean K?

It would be smart to have a simple alarm box attachment with a key chain receiver so that if someone tries to move or steal your Segaway, you would be alerted immediately.

More accessories are on their way and threads like this one can help us make choices about future options available. Thank you!

i think the sidebar and bags might require other software on the unit (e series).
Nope. Just a desire and a decision.

A low cost LED Light for both the front and rear if the transporter would work great since the energy costs makes them so efficient!

A luggage case to pack it for a plane ride.
Nicer hubcap designs.

Soft Foam inside with a semi hard outside design that can be compressed into a small package to be stored in a bag attached to the transporter. I can't imagine someone having to carry a hard case around once they get to their travel destination.
