Thanks, Erwin! Chapter 11: Don't Forget to Smile?

So come visit sometime. I'm street-legal now.

You know me better than that, Erwin. I've been standing at street corners as long as I can remember.

I uploaded a few quick videos on step on's and off's. I have to shoot another and when I get a chance will put them together with alittle narration. Pretty much these are my thoughts on proforming them.

It is much easier to do a step on or off when stepping onto a surface around the same height as the platform. I have a short step by my backdoor I use for the video. But I believe the perfect on set item would be a half applebox or 2. You can make a line of them if you need to.

When stepping onto or off a surface that is more level with the platform you don't shift your CG as much as you do stepping up or down from the platform.

Having a grip there for spotting will always help. Another grip can place the apple box or boxes where they need to go on the fly.

As you can see I can maintain the motion I had from the transporter into the platform. On set I would have a grip grab a handle to keep the segway from moving.

The most difficult step on or off is while walking backwards in missionary onto the front of the segway.

Doing a step on/off is difficult while operating. Not only do you have all the usual things going on in your head. Level, horizon, frame, etc. You also have the unknown effects the segway may produce while making such a move. Having a level surface to step onto will allow a smoother transition and will leave a larger margian for operating error.

Hi all you Handsfree people,

I just updated the User Manual to include a short section (9.4) on clearances, for doorways, etc., for the various tyre configurations.

And yes, we spell 'tyre' like that over here. It's the Mediterranean diet.

Glide safe,
