When the “Stay Home Stay Safe” stuff hit, I found a local Onewheel dealer and bought the last XR + he had in stock. I’ve never been a skate boarder, or snowboarder. Waterskiing and roller blades are as close as I came. It seemed perfectly logical to start a high likelihood-of-injury activity half way into my 60th year. Yes - I had the black-n-blue thigh when I did the splits during a poor dismount! Yes - I have a road rash knee and elbow! Yes - my back and ankle feel better now. Yes - every bit of it was worth it to be able to gently carve my way down the streets, up and down driveways, and across sidewalks! I’ll never be the wild trail rider, or the dude trying to push 22 MPH, but the enjoyment of being a Smoooooth Rider I hope to continue for years to come! Currently have 91 miles logged and looking forward to the next 1,000.
