The Segway carries one person who stands on a small platform with wheels on either side and a steering handlebar. Leaning slightly forward moves the scooter forward; leaning back makes it reverse.
This stupid unstable piece of crap is being recalled because, guess what,
it can't stand up, because it defies common sense, trying to put two
wheels side by side.
Any 12 year old boy knows that if you build a scooter with its wheels
in line, one behind the other, it is inherently stable.
Why do they need this overpriced piece of junk.
A pair of rollerblades is a lot cheaper.
I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

riders have been injured falling off.
One suffered a head wound and needed stitches.
Lmao! This could be in Tech Humor and still be relevant! Am I the only one that finds this whole thing hillarious?
US President George Bush was photographed this summer tumbling off a Segway at his family retreat in Kennebunkport, Maine.
