RE: Onewheel Demographics
59 going on 60. Not rich and don't consider myself old (although there are those that would debate that). No skateboarding or snowboarding but I do occasionally race motocross.
I've been riding my XR and Plus on trails here in Marin for the last couple of years. I have yet to see another Onewheel locally, we OWers seem to be few and far between geographically. I've recruited friends and family to ride with me but, unfortunately, several have injured themselves so the OW has been banished from family gatherings. Although my friends race motocross they just shake their heads when I attempt to recruit them.
There are no group rides in Marin, they gather in SF, SJ or the eastbay. Now, if I could only ride my OW that far................
RE: Marin County trail riders
I'm not considering the OW in the same classification as "bicycle" because I like to ride the hiking trails where bikes are not allowed (in and around the tight stuff, much slower than a hiker). Open space trail rules specify that bikes yield to hikers and that hikers yield to equestrians. My rule of thumb is to yield to everything moving on a trail; to demonstrate that I'm all about respectfully sharing the trails. When a hiker comes along I either hover in place as they pass or step of the board. If I see a horse I step off the board.
Marin County trail riders
Have any of you Marin OW owners been stopped by a ranger for riding a OW on a trail (county, open space, etc.)? I do a lot of trail riding here in northern Marin. I slow down to a crawl when passing hikers, dogs and I just get off when a horse comes by.
90% of people using the trails here are pretty cool about it but when a hiker or horse rider tells me I'm not allowed on that particular trail I just give them my bewildered look, apologize if I've upset them and tell them I wasn't aware of it. But I still keep riding those trails.
RE: XR 1st impressions
Did the identical ride today with just 13lbs. of tire pressure and had 55% battery remaining. So, with only 13lbs. in the tire, I went 8.9 miles (4 miles offroad in Delirium, 5.9 miles on sidewalk and asphalt in Mission). That equates to a full ride of 19.78 miles. Again, holy cra#! My OW+ would do the 4 miles offroad in Delirium and have virtually nothing left in the tank. Color me impressed................
XR 1st impressions
Took my new board out for its maiden voyage today. Usually I drive to my offroad spot but today I rode the XR there and back. The entire ride was 8.9 miles, 4 miles offroad in Delirium and 4.9 miles on blacktop and sidewalks in Mission. When I got back and looked at my phone I couldn't believe it. It said I had 58% battery left. That roughly calculates to 21.2 miles for an entire charge, Holy Cra#!
Granted, the XR had 20lbs. of tire pressure (the way it came from FM) and I only weigh 133lbs. Tomorrow I'll try it again with 13lbs. of pressure in the tire and see what I have left in battery reserve.
