I was waiting for my wife in the shopping centre and noticed a shop sellung e-scooters. My my, what monsters can you buy with a few k€ :o I'm genuinely surprised!

The baddest monster: 3k: dual-notor, can carry >150kg of your fat ass. Takes ~12hours to charge, but, read this: with a single charge you can travel 150km! Max speed is 90km/h

i mean... I'm feeling quite confident riding a motorcycle at that speed, because I can bend down, because it weights a few hundred kilos and is not that sensitive to wind and road bumps.

But riding standing at that speed... Without any cover, with a vehicle weighting 50kg,.. Would you?

    Depends on the size of the wheels the most, plus after few months of regular use I’m sure it won’t seem that extreme.

    WHO ARE YOU? Is this a bug?

    @rutee07 maybe his suit is in dry cleaning

    @neriald He got a tan too. Must be all the gardening.

    Nah, I wouldn't. Also, a 50 kg e-scooter would lose much of its point for me. I'm fine with mine that goes only 20 km/h, but weighs only 10 kg.

    @rutee07 lost 35kg + it's hot now - got rid of the jacket. Lost my beard and got a haircut. And thanks to wfh in the village [thanks to corona] I finally got the tan after all those years. So there :)

    @rutee07 @netikras I knew it. It was too good to be true. Everything has lost its meaning. Life makes no sense anymore! Aaaaaaaaaah!

    (Congrats, though!)

    @Jilano hey, but the hair is better now! Focus on that, okay? Try not to lose it!

    P.S. Thanks :) another 5kg would be nice, but I'd like to end my hospitals' saga first. Also I felt like I needed a good change after the lemons mid-January...

    It's a professional when he says kilo-euro instead of a few thousand bucks.

    @netikras I'm trying... Right now I'm just hiding your face with my thumb.

    PS: That's understandable, hope you'll get oranges next. Those are nice!

    How does that license? That's more aggressive than speed pedelecs 😆

    @heyheni yepp, that's the one!

    @sortoftested they are not legislated in our country. Yet :)

    Looks pretty unsafe and fun. Don't die. 😋

    @SortOfTested To be honest, those two often make a pair! You're right on the "don't die" part, though, it can be a hindrance.

    I'd suggest something with a bodyshell:

    I'm reminded of the time at school when I put skateboard wheels on my schoolbag, a bit hair-raising sitting on that going downhill !

    A bit like this, but without the motor:

    I'm currently using an electric scooter to ride uphill. So, no doubt the speed should be moderate to climb hills. The model I'm using is the Segway Ninebot MAX Electric Kick Scooter that comes with a 350w motor to ensure up to 18.6 mph speed. This iconic model allows it's user to ride up to 40 miles on a single charge. The Puncture-resistant & Shock-absorbing tires made it a great choice for riding uphill.

    @ColinKint

    What is its hill climbing speed ?

    My 250w bike only manages 4mph up hills..

    @ColinKint I own a e-twow booster V with one .5kW engine - it's more than decent in uphills. Manages a good ~14km/h on uphills steep enough to prefer stairs if on-foot
