Wait, so you actually use those things?! Ha ha ha! I wouldn't be caught dead on a Segway. I'm a walkin'/bikin' guy myself. Besides, you just look so goofy on those crazy devices.Budgie said:Paris will be teaming with Segways or similar devices in the future. With the amount of energy produced by a gallon of gasoline, a Segway can travel approximately 450 miles. Nearly all of my in-town trips are on my Segway or my feet, including grocery shopping twice a week. There has been a Segway rental business in Paris for at least the last 6 months.

Hell yeah I use one. I've owned it for over a year and have had no operating or maintenance costs other than a few dollars in electricity. In fact I've used it in conjunction with DART.freewaytincan said:Wait, so you actually use those things?!
I wonder how well the USPS' Segway experiments went. I would think that an entity like them or a big-city police department would be a 'natural' fit for them.Cardinal said:I finallt saw somebody using one in Madison yesterday. I would have figured there would be several there already.
Budgie, I still think you should try to be the first person to cross the continent on a Segway. Think about it. PBS could be doing a documentary of your life some day.

This is Budgie on Queen B's machine. I have family in the Dallas area and I have traveled from Plano to downtown Dallas via DART with my Segway. Yes, freewaytincan, we are out there and just because you don't see us, doesn't mean we don't exist. With the thousands of typical boobs out there driviing their cars down 75 from McKinney to Dallas, it doesn't surprise me that we are under your radar. What I'm saying is that I'm not the only one to do this, and most who combine rail and segway are daily commuters in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Boston. Segway doesn't pay your salary, therefore they are the enemy. Constant "upgrading" of roadways that induce additional travel miles is what makes your livelihood. I will send you ****ing picutres if you don't believe me. The DART personnel I have met along my journeys have been very supportive and what a Segway for themselves. I will be in the Metromess in July if you'd like to discuss this over a pint. How about Dilley Plaza at high noon?freewaytincan said:Waaaaaaaaait a minute there man, you live here?!
You want to ban dogs? Why don't you ban fat people. We could put up really tight bollards at the entrance to the city so that you have to squeeze through to get in.The Irish One said:Paris is so beautiful, banning SUV's from the city center should be a design standard. Maybe dogs should be banned as well.

I wish. Though I generally use rail/bus combined with foot travel. I'm sorry, but I'd rather walk in the heat than be seen on one of those. Just me feelings on it.Queen B said:Don't you think it's time that everyone wakes up from "Henry Ford Syndrome"?
