The ol’ XR has been pretty good to me!
Had the mini 2.0’s save my ass twice. Even being a good rider who’s in control OWs can get
Both times I hit some uneven and rough pavement and had the nose hit.
Both times I could feel the fangs hit and roll though allowing me to adjust.
Love the insurance comment! Could be a whole different story had I not made that $50 investment.
Newbie to the OW family. Had my XR for about 3 weeks now and have put 150 miles on it, as well as received some nice road rashes and an avilsion fracture to my wrist! Only way to describe the OW to those that haven't ridden one is its more like a dirt bike than skateboard. It take some trial and error (which includes some bumps and bruises) to figure it out, but once you do it truly becomes and extension of your body and very addictive to ride!
Like most of you, I read up, watched videos, rode some friends OW's, and did my best to get prepared for riding the streets. But the one thing I've never heard discuss and has been a major problem for me is, DOGS HATE ONEWHEELS!
I've had more dog chase after, nip at, go ballistic on the leash, and literally loose their shit when they see me, then anytime ever on my bike, skateboard, or even running.
I'm sure some of you have experienced this as well, but since I did hear much about it, thought I would post this warning to new riders. Please use caution when coming up on dogs, and try to keep as much distance as possible! Only thing worst than going down on the OW, would be getting attacked by a dog at the same time
Keep it level!
