It seemed as though you were almost at the war memorial and then got a bit lost?


Hi foghornleghorn. Did a few times, if you look at 9.30 someone had put a log across path to stop motorbikes so when I reversed back log went under the chair so only one back wheel on the ground. Took about 15 to 20 mins to free myself. Don't feel the cold, heated soles, heated vest and heated gloves powered by 3s12p 18650's laptop batteries.

I did notice the cut in the video but didn't realise you got caught up. Last time I got stuck the bottom of frame was wedged on a high kerb and had to wait until someone helpful came along in a van and dragged me off.

Usually wear skiiing trousers in the winter to keep my legs warm but always get frozen feet. Been thinking about adding heating pads to my seat.

Only caution I've seen mentioned many times is that one needs to be VERY careful about adding external heating sources if you have limited sensation - more than a few folks have gotten serious burns because they cranked the heat up to high, or had something fail and not noticed that they were getting cooked until to late....

Waiting for that yummy BBQ smell is not a good approach.... :P

Nothing special here - just first ride with my friend larry - his new Bounder first time riding it - it was fun - the more i use this chair the more i like it - feeling better each time - suspension - speed - not sure i want to give up the speed :D

The suspension on both those chairs is probably best described as f. hard. It may be possible to get lower lb rated springs from Bounder?

Today we had rain and tree branches, the odd roof tile, going past my windows horizontally. You were lucky!

yes its a harder ride that i get with my other chairs - but i have to say - its getting much better and its feeling fine now - i lowered my PSI to 20 in the rear - and 15 in the front - now the sounds you hear from my camera sound alot worse than they feel - and most of the sound is coming from the front forks going over sidewalk cracks bumps etc, - certain kind of cracks are hard - and some are not - compared to my 646 - thats a cadilliac ride compared to this chair - hard to explain but much better in person the chair and riding it also - i starting to like it alot now - if you can accepts its Cons. work around them if you can -

for example my range - sucks - compared to my friend hes - today i was down to a 7 on battery - it hit 6 then back to 7 - where my friend hit 8 and back to 9 and 10 etc, so his chair with 10mph does alot better for battery range - i hope by adding the extra ADD ON in the summer would allow me to extend my range enough so i can enjoy it all day. i am not sure i want to give up my speed just yet - if i can manage with the range - and accept the sluggish hills - i may just leave it for a bit - today was a great day for speed -

Your bounders look nice, the feeling while moving at 12mph must be really great :thumbup:

19 to 20, room temp. Battery charging temp.
22 to 25 nice outdoors.
30 over and direct sun, too hot outside. Too much to be comfortable. Esp if you happen to be stuck on a bed! Every time that happens I swear I will get air conditioning fitted to this room. Then dont... Because £

25°C is when I start to defrost! Nicest day of the year here was 35°C and I'd feel much better if it was 30+ every day.

yes i love it more each time i ride it - Feels great at top speed :dance

it has its limits with other areas - if you can deal with some of its shortcomings - and i can with a few tweaks - again the sounds are much worse sounding and feeling from the audio on the camera than when you actually ride it - not complaining here cheers

its not bad in the summer - now being near the water is colder - last time i recall it may be about 8 to 9 miles that round trip - with the Rnet i can see the miles - with this chair i cant so have to use GPS and my app for some reason closes on me - i wanted to track the distance - when i got home and checked my phone - app was closed - got nothing.

Also you have to keep in mind - this is a very short frame - and everything is Welded - means stiff - it has gotten better than when i first got it - my friends older chair was stiffer so this is a softer ride for him - with me its the opposite from my other chairs - so it depends who you ask - and what they were used to before.

yes i am glad i wore it that day- i should have added my Joker face mask neck - next time -

look at the 1 hour 18 mark - Bus was turning - scared him a bit at the corner - then next min. Car pulling out of Garage - cant see - didnt stop - close call

then at 1 hour 28 mark - this area and most of NYC is very much the same - i should have used my horn - instead i used my big mouth - maybe was better - - he wasnt speeding at all - they just dont look or care to there surroundings and think they are the only ones there - also further ahead - workers pushing wheel carts not even looking at nothing but there Cell phones and dont even care - same people who want 15 dollars a hour - they wonder why they never move up in the world - i wouldnt give him 3 dollars a hour -

Dog walking was what used to kill mychairs so fast, chair and batteries yearly. The dog refused to say no... He made me do it. Miles a day. So we had to go. Sadly my dog died. Now my chairs stay clean, look like new a year on because if its wet, or roads salted, OR cold, I stay in, watch TV!

i feel the same - try to keep it clean and avoid rain etc, dosnt always work out that way - i dont like the cold - only if i have too - but then you know - you never do anything if you worry too much about every little thing - i like to clean up my chair first thing when i get home - and then charge - sometimes i have my girls do a fast good cleaning when i get home and then a better more detail one every so often as needed.

At 10:20 I wanted you to stop at that hot dog stand, as you said you were thirsty before. "Larry- why do you keep stopping? " :x

You are lucky to live in NY State, as we cannot get Medicare to give Bounder chairs here in NC. :(
