Sorry for not posting in a while. I've been climbing mountains in NY and NH and fighting off bears...But that's beside the point. Today I rode a Segway. Jim over at Great Hobbies has recently gotten his hands on one (and is rumoured to be a reseller) and let us slices take it for a rip. It's amazing. We're all raving about it. As Jim says, you have to ride it to appreciate it.
I can honestly see myself living in a city and using a Segway as my primary mode of transportation. At just under 6K it's a little pricey, but still cheaper than a car.
