    Saw this link and thought of this thread. No offense to those who use the Segway. Everything goes eXtreme at some point. Carry on.

    Don't look now...

    Here come the Segway imitators:

    Seems like a pretty pathetic knock-off to me - I doubt it is as maneuverable as the original.

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    And, it can be ridden with no hands -- or, as Holland likes to do, hands out front, Superman-style.
    Budgie lol. Do you undo your coat buttons so it trails like a cape? Nice article.

    Oddly enough, in these here parts I've been a celebrity off and on for the last 7 years. I'll never forget the time the newspaper had the headline "ADULT BUSINESS COMING TO TOWN" and there was my picture in the article. Nothing like good publicity. Not to brag, but I'm a planning veteran of radio, tv and print.

    Actually, I'm trying to manipulate the bar waitress at the ELKS club to come to my studio apartment for a personal segway glide.

    I think this is funny since Disney owns over 100 Segways and uses them all over their parks for vendors and security. So, it's only "safe" for their employees. As a private property owner, it's Disney's choice, but I will still defend my right to use a segway in public right-of-way and public places/buildings.

    There are a dozen businesses (east coast, west coast and international) that offer sight seeing tours via Segway.

    Here's a website that has purchase and rental business locations.

    Easy Money

    I talked to a banker about a tour business a couple months ago and he said he'd give a loan on the spot. I've got a dealer application -- I'm just not ready to jump yet. I'm not an entrepreneur by nature.
