These things look to be so cool! I've not ridden one, though. The police used to ride them in Ocala's downtown area, but I don't they do that anymore...don't know why.

Did you see that the man who invented the Segway was killed when he went over a cliff on one the other day? How ironic is that?

This scene does look like something out of a dream.

Your Segways look like chariots.

@ Jacob - Danny Kamen, the inventor of the Segway, is alive and well. Jimi Heselden, the man who died, was the British millionaire who bought the company in early 2010.
Segway is a homophone for the Italian term segue, used in music for a smooth transition.

Well, I knew you'd know all the details! Sheesh! What a guy. I'm so jealous - you seem to have a encyclopedic knowledge of just about everything.

I'm really not jealous, but I'm sure as hell impressed! Big time!

I sometimes know little tidbits of stuff and then get half of that wrong!
