Hot? That was debateable. What was with the towel?

It was not a great event, to be sure. It looked to me that when she started toward the cars on the side of the street, she tried to either steer away by turning the handlebars, or by leaning...

Either way, it seemed clear that she did it herself, as I saw nothing to indicate a fault with the machine.

Still, a rather sad event. I hope she was okay.

I believe that given my assumptions above, if she were on an i2, that particular accident may not have happened. Of course, she may have had a different problem...

That is one tough machine.

With an incident like that, you know it had to be scratched up. And the handlebar survived!!!

Some people should not glide.

And what was with that cape thingy?

I saw this one quite a while ago when browsing youtube.

Looks like she went to turn without leaning at all.

Definately far less likely to happen with gen2's.

You can imagine the look on the owner's face as it happened: "My Segway!"

Default Well, there are those 3 words I live by, in action...

STUPID SHOULD HURT!

As in the previous post, I'll bet the owner will be a lot more carefull in the future. I'd really be bummed if all the scratches on my seg weren't my own.

Scars of passage... and the crack in this fender is from a demo gone bad.....

If somethings gonna get busted on my Seg, I want to be to one to do it!

I'm no fashion editor, but I think they call that a shawl or probably the girls, sorry women, out there can help us. Although it looks like a cape or a towel I think the fringe around the edge give it away as a fashion accesory.

Fashion commentary. Look what we've come too. Mr Blackwell look out!

Karl, Correct. How can anyone comment on the level of Hotness from this angle? Well .... OK I won't go there. No accounting for people's taste. Leave it at no view of her face, the first thing I usually associate with hot. Right after personality and sense of humor. And her body in front has no bearing on hot. Right?

Exclamation Lmfao!

If she was ok, that was seriously funny! LMFAO!!

I'm sure there's LOTS of crazy bike wreck footage out there too.
It's only moments until a Segway(s) is featured in Jackass X!

She had no idea what she was doing!

Man that was funny. If she's ok.

Peace.
