Hello all

Just wandering, are there many owners here from the UK? I ask as Seg`s here in the UK are far and few between as to ownership. Many places offer Tours, but not many people own them as I can see.

So I am going to import them from China. My question is UK owners where do you meet and live? Please come forward I would like to arrange Events like racing meetings and get togethers.

Anyone interested?

Ok fellow Segway enthusiast's, please help me here.

Needless to say the Seg thing in the UK is zero unless you rent for the hour on a tour, so how I do I create a Boom here?

You guys love them, I do but we have no appetite here yet. I am looking to import these sell and organize events like you guys have.

Any recommendations welcome, the UK need your help we are missing out on fun

Colin, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but you are about 20 years late to the Segway “boom”, such as it was, and about 5 years late to the related “hoverboard” mania.

In 16 years of production, the original Segway machines never found enough markets to be profitable, and with redundant hardware for virtually every important system, they were very expensive. Newer Segs do not have such redundant systems, as far as I am aware.

I wish you good luck on your business venture. You might use the popularity of this forum (or lack thereof) as a part of your market assessment. I will paraphrase a quote of Steve Jobs to Segway inventor Dean Kamen: Are you sure you understand your market?
