To feel the freedom. Moving along life’s paths, with the extra height of the SEGWAY under my feet, lifting up my eyes to meet the world and the sights, and I glide. To move, to flutter my wings of freedom, and to glide. Extending my reach to the world, to places my bicycle can’t go, or isn’t allowed. As the cars wizzz by, I have my own freedom too, and it feels good.

Really enjoyed the heart you had in setting out to make something unique happen in your lives. So many of us wish we could, but we don’t do it. I’ll be talking this up.

Ever since my american friend exciled in Cuba died free in Cuba I have wanted to find artists in Cuba and bring that art back to the states. I love the painters, furniture makers, and jewelry makers of this beautiful country.
I just love to ski in the winter time, enjoy the landscape, have fun in the curves…..I tried a Segway, now it is my new passion, I just got to have one, so I can glide on a Segway, anytime, anywhere… Tom, Denmark
The first time you fly in a small airplane like a Cessna 172 or a Cirrus SR20, hear the engine whine and feel the control of the aircraft as it picks up speed to take-off, and then watch as the ground falls away as you punch through clouds and rise above them is an amazing experience. The most rewarding thing as a pilot is to hear my passenger’s excitement and later see the their gaze and huge grin because that is when I know that the experience is as memorable for them as my first flight was. That is my present “thing”.
My future “thing” is to get together a group of pilots and take a month to fly around the country, to see the country from 3,000 - 4,000. There are many interesting places that were by-passed by the Interstate Highway but still have a story to tell and airports where history played out yet have since been forgotten. Those are the places we would look for, the usual, the interesting, and the unique, to land and spend some time. Like the barnstormers of old, we would take passengers up so that they could see their world from above, get to the city for medical care, be reunited with their brother or sister, father or mother who they haven’t seen in awhile, or get a vet as far away from the horrors of the War and into a place of peace and solace.
Flying will not cure hunger or bring peace, but it can be a place and time when the cares of the world are far more distant as the plane is from the ground; sometimes that distance is enough to recharge our soul, a good thing in today’s world.
My thing is free flight. I move through the air like a bird piloting my hang glider. It is quiet and peaceful just like the x2 was in Punta Cana on the beach. I truly thought I was moving on the ground as effortlessly as I move through the air in my glider. Thanks!
… can’t I? One of these days. To be able to just step up and drift along, in the open, QUIETLY and see the sights…
One of these days…
The best adventure yet. When is your next trip and can I come along?
The Segway would be a great tool for my job as a motivational speaker. I am a 100% disabled Veteran and I recieved a kidney transplant. I speak to patients both per and post op. I also talk to groups about the great need for organ donation. The segway would show the disabled and handicapped that they don\’t have to be tied to a wheelchair or scooter. The Segway makes limited mobility sexy! The Segway could also motivate people to continue rehab so they are strong enough to ride. GREAT Idea, Great Product
