New Hobby

So I’d been looking into a OneWheel for a bit, but didn’t want to pull the trigger without trying it first. Borrowed one from a friend recently, and I’ve been using it for four days now. Just loving it. Anyone else here tried one yet?

I saw someone on one of these the other day. The guy was flying down the sidewalk - probably 15-20 mph. Looked dangerous.

I think they top out in the high teens. I’ve been keeping it chill in the like 5-10 range. Sped it up too much once and ate shit.

This looks like a skateboard for boomers.

Honestly feels more like snowboarding.

Our niece's husband broke his collar bone, elbow, cracked two neck vertebrae and three ribs on a quad runner accident when it flipped on him. That sounds about what would happen if one of these and a car try to occupy the same space in time. No thanks.

I was worried this thread would be about beating up hobos. I'm relieved it's something else.

One of my co-workers used a OneWheel to commute to work before we started working remotely. He was insane. He'd take the train from La Jolla to Irvine, and then ride his OneWheel to Lake Forest.

I'd really like to spend some time with it on beach sand. Seems like a good environment to test limits without any real downsides.

I occasionally cruise the neighborhood on an electric skateboard. In the back of my mind though, is the thought that some idiot driver is gona take me out. But damn... I can get from my apartment to In N Out and back in 20 minutes on that thing. 😂

You know, I have another option.  I’ve been masturbating a lot lately.  I’d consider it a hobby.  It’s pretty fun.  A little messy, but fun.

Are you at all concerned your wife or a kid will enter into the garage during the hobby?

During quarantine people would knock before entering.  It was awesome.

This is why I do not own any off road toys.

Almost makes you want to tell everyone you are still positive, eh?

I would milk that shit. Especially if I was receiving any sort of sympathy

Could it be that someone tried to walk in while you were watching your porn?

Yeah I’m back in the house now with kids screaming and an annoyed wife.  I walked past the garage earlier and looked in and sighed.

I...I hope not...

Then again, they didn’t start knocking until about day 5.
