First nosedive in delerium???



  • @skyman88 yep. I was flat terrain riding when I took my nosedive. Shoulder will hea to a point, but the damage is permanent. My lung was at about 80% capacity when they released me from the hospital. Hopefully I'll see a higher number on the 20th at my next X-ray.



  • @thegreck Any chance of making that Facebook group public? I don't know who runs it, so I'm replying to you. I don't have a Facebook account, but I would like to browse around that group.



  • @florider the group must be closed, otherwise it would get flooded with spam.

    This topic has been asked on Facebook also and the answer remains closed group. People don’t want others how much they post on there... haha. And it keeps trolls, scammers and spammers to a minimum. Make a FB account with a throw away email account if needed just to join. Lots of good info, laughs and content on there.



  • @florider Zero chance, for all the reasons stated above. Just join, it's a worthwhile group.



  • I had my first nosedive today, I completely blew through all the battery warnings, and I was riding it pretty hard through a grassy field when it got to 2%, and down I went... Flew about 10 feet and just laid there for a second before I got up and laughed about it. I know it was all my fault, I burned through the warnings, but was just happy that this happened on grass. Lesson learned that once that nose bites the dirt there's not a whole lot you can do, gotta listen to your board and the warnings!

    Glad you hear you're able to laugh about it, that's a good thing. At least you know where the limits are... and what happens past them now. Any "dirt rash"?



  • @skyman88 Just a rashed elbow, which i think was more from my clothes rubbing my arm as I landed on it rather than my elbow on the ground. And I had some grass in the shorts ;-) I'm pretty new to this with less than 30 miles sofar on the board, but I got really comfortable on it pretty quickly. The thing I was really playing with today was getting a feel for pushback as I was working through the range of speed in Mission mode, and riding safely on that line, this was on a gravel trail. I haven't had the balls yet to try Delirium on any terrain, but it's gonna happen soon LOL

    I wouldn’t be afraid of Delirium... it’s fun and has its place. Glad to hear all worked well for you. Delirium is great because it legit is a whole new board.



  • @skyman88 awesome, I'll give it a whirl this weekend then, appreciate the advice!
