Default Newnan, GA USA here... Kickscooter after natural disaster

At the end of March my brother and I took a direct hit from the strongest part of an EF-4 tornado. The house and my car were ruined. Also I was injured when I fell through the ceiling while trying to put up a tarp where the roof had been.

My medical bills swallowed the insurance check for my car and my brother had to pick up the slack with his. The Segway Ninebot ES3 Plus can help us through this in a few ways. It is particularly useful for getting my brotherís car to/from public chargers since we canít charge at our temporary accommodations. In a pinch we can even use it to go our separate ways. It also buys me time for getting a motorcycle assembled and registered after I abandoned it at our motherís place 8+ years ago.

My brother was not very enthusiastic about spending the money on our Segway Ninebot ES3 Plus ($579 at Costco... $602 after tax) but he uses it multiple times per day and doesnít need to spend nearly as much time shuttling me around. Unfortunately, it didnít quite work out today since he didnít leave me the scooter or the car after taking me to physical therapy and then work, and he will be at work across town when I get off. Excuse to buy a second one when I can afford it?

Well, unfortunately it broke down after 150 miles and I still can’t get a car. It was less than a month old so back to Costco it goes... and I can’t exchange it since they don’t seem to have it anymore.

I am so sorry to hear that....I am no fan of those Ninebot/Segways your post just reinforces my bias....
