Full fairing for a Segway?
 
I am guessing that they would be pointless just because they cannot go very quickly. I have wanted one since they first came out, although I am not sure how many advantages they really have over a bicycle that costs ten percent as much.

Focus, Xist, Focus!

Impractical, hell yes.

I still want one. I wish they'd make the conversion kits commercially.

Ha! That's awesome Niky!

Can't take credit. My friend is a motorcycle magazine editor, and he posted that on the Facebook feed a month or two ago.

I want one. Badly. Funnily enough, I've had several opportunities to try out the Segway at motoring and EV shows, but I've never done so. If it was wearing this, I might change my mind...

I think the best option would be to make a segway recumbent, not sure if moving your feet would be the best way to make it go faster or slower or if there would be a better way.

Ive wanted one since I heard him tease the world about it and how famous remote viewer Ed Dames on the Art Bell show remote viewed "IT" or "Ginger" and told us all the great things it can do indirectly.

Well, the price tag has held me up. My local mall uses them for patrol and the local science museum lets you ride them around for fun.

Ive been on the fence about buying a 2 wheel electric scooter, but by time I make my mind up a model has been discontinued. :eek:

...looks like a Roman Shin guard for the Jolly Green Giant on wheels.

I was never wild about the segway, use that 4hp electric on a recumbent scooter on the other hand (talking 50mph now) instead of using it to stand while motionless...

For the same range/speed and lots more portability (carry it like a suitcase) and navigability (much narrower), and a fraction of the cost of a segway, I could see a solowheel, or an airwheel. Plus it has a full wheel fender ;)
