Talking My New Ride - My Toad's Toad

Just got my new HOT PINK Segway i2 and took it on the Lewis & Clark Trail in Long Beach, Washington. Sooooo much better than either very short walks or using a handicap scooter. Freedom at last!!!

Congratulations Franz. I have to ask, what kind of mileage to you get with that, at what speeds?

My DH and I both have I2 Segways, but I want a pink one! Where did you find one in color? I am so jealous! Do you have a Segvator to haul it? We just got ours -- soooo much easier.

I've put a couple hundred miles on my I2 in the last 8 months and love it.

NOW, if I can just get someone to make me a mount for my Segvator to put on the front of the bus and get it off the back of the TOAD, I'd be a very happy camper indeed!

Here it is mounted on the Segvator on the back of my Mini.

My DH also has an i2 painted black w/red flaming. I got my pink one after an i2 was stolen from our garage before we sold our home. (Thanks to USSA & full replacement insurance) Jared at Segway of Ohio is the guy to talk to. Had it shipped to our location on the Washington coast. This is the most awesome Segway I've had, this is #6.
Of course I had to have a new matching Nutcase helmet.
We carry 2 i2's in the back of our HHR toad. In fact, we only considered toads we could easily load both Segways in. Before we went full-time we had an electric double carrrier mounted on the hitch.

I'm hoping to get both knees replaced soon so this gives me freedom. Hope you enjoy your's as much as we do. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our Segways

Segway i2's go approx. 24 miles on a few hour charge. Top speed is 12 mph.

For those who have never ridden a Segway...they are a blast. Give it a try even though they look intimidating they really are easy to ride.

I believe the cost to buy one is somewhere around $4,000 to $5,000.

We have rented them all over the country.

Shouldn't the Nutcase helmet color match the ride?

We considered having a 2" receiver put on the front of our last motorhome. Might be an option. Possibly an electric lift that fits above your hitch to the toad.
