Not Allowed On Trains
I just got stopped while trying to take the train from San Diego to LA. It was shocking because I really didn't think about the train being a problem whatsoever, but also because the conductor actually had a list of banned BRANDS, not just battery types. OneWheel, specifically is not allowed on Amtrak. They need to start getting the word out that they're different, ASAP.
RE: Riding over sidewalk cracks
As some have mentioned, it takes practice. I kinda of almost jump, but more or less just make my body weight lighter and let the board handle it. Not sure if that makes sense? But either way, you can't just cruise down sidewalk (or anywhere) without constantly paying attention to the tiny changes in terrain. Kind of hurts the cockiness factor haha.
RE: Hoverboards banned on airlines
Damn. I literally just got mine a couple days ago. I live in LA and my GF is in Vancouver and was planning on taking it back and forth. Future motion has really been silent on this? No public statement whatsoever? I have PTSD from buying a Fisker a few years back haha. The silence from fisker was the worst!
RE: U.S. government declares hoverboards unsafe
@mdwatson1957 I literally just got one in the mail a few days ago, and I'm out of the country so I haven't been following this stuff too closely. Are OneWheels currently not allowed on airplanes? How are they even successfully shipped at this point? Ground shipping?
