I haven't heard too much about the Segway human xporter these days, save for Dubya falling off one, its major recall last fall, and some recent comments in the financial press about the company's failing to raise much more capital with a secondary stock issue or something like that.
When I first heard about the Segway I immediately agreed with the guy who deemed it "The answer to the question nobody asked."
I thought about whether I'd want to trust my now somewhat brittle bones to a Segway or to one of the many currently available little foldable two wheel electric scooters and decided that if I was inclined to stop using my two feet on the sidewalk a scooter would make more sense. It'd cost a far less money and be much easier to pick up and store when needed.
Did I miss something? I don't know anyone who's used a Segway. Has anyone here? If you have, what were your overall impresions?
If I were filled from my toes to my navel with Milk of Magnesia, and from there to the top of my head with Ex-Lax, I think I'd sooner trust a fart than a ride on a Segway.
Just my .02
