I especially like the safety vests and helmets. Do you really need a helmet on a device whos top speed is about the same as running? Also that the guy checking his email is in the grass has what looks to be off-road tires.
It’s just all kinds of silly, especially Mr. Off-Road Email.
We live in Walnut Hills next to Eden Park. We enjoy taking our daughter for walks there and she’s puzzled when she eyes the Segwayers. I wonder what kind of impression this leaves on her. Will she think that we’re somehow inferior because we chose to enjoy the scenery on foot?
IMHO, a better alternative are the CPA’s Architrek tours which offer walking tours of many places throughout urban Cincinnati for a much more cost-effective price [actually, it’s a donation]. And you’re also exercising in the process.
By the way, love this blog.
Thanks, Steve! When your daughter is old enough, you can introduce her to G.O.B. and his Segway-riding ways on Arrested Development. She’s right to be puzzled.
HAH! I love the pictures!
