When you said e-scooter I was thinking an electronic version of a Vespa/Scooter/Moped not a Razor type kick scooter. but then I'm not up to speed on these.

I did a search and the picture I had my head of a guy riding one of these (you put scooter and Segway, I think nerd) was personified when the first video popped up.



I can see the attraction, but this guy weighs 150 lbs and claims it slow going up hills because of his weight! I stand no chance.

I really want on electric motorcycle or large scooter (like a Honda Silverwing only electric) but no one makes one that is attractive to me.

Every time I check this forum and see the "Finally dialed in my fitment!" thread at the top of the GR86 section, I think I can hear Tcoat scream in the distance. I have no idea what he sounds like, but pretty sure that's him.

Been thinking about it again. Leaning toward the Segway G30 Max (I think that's the right model, some of the model numbers are nearly the same thing lol).

Mostly just want something I can use to get to nearby places in a 1-2 mile radius of my apartment without having to start BRZ car for short rides every time.

Might use it also to get to the office from the train station eventually if I start going occasionally.
I also prefer the ebike. I have one i originally built over 10yrs ago 1800w output 48v 10a battery. Now on its 2nd frame and battery. Very usefull.

Yep. That was me. Every time I look at that title.

Yeah, my brother has an ebike. I just think it's overkill for what I'd be using it for.

Whoops :P Yeah. I'm definitely heavier than 150 lbs, but I've seen that it can carry heavier people, it just might not reach the advertised top speed. Which isn't a huge deal to me.

But I dunno. Maybe I won't.

scooters are like mopeds. unless you're less than 120 pounds, blonde, with boobs and a distracting miniskirt, there's no way to look good while riding one.

I think I still have a voicemail on my work phone from him last time he visited this area. Him and Ultra passed about 15-20 miles from where I was at. Problem is that was across a lake and up a mountain.

I've been with Tcoat a few times. Only time he screamed was when my wife and I showed up at the table with green beans.
