Segway Test Drive

While in the West Edmonton Mall I test drove a segway. I was able to have lessons and ride around on both models, both the first generation and the newest model. While all models are body intuitive the new model is even more so with turning done with a slight lean and a small movement of the handle. There are now many different models of Segways - a golf model, an off roading model, a police model, etc. Check out their website
I had an absolute blast in my test drive and was able to get the personal transporter up to significant speed fairly quickly. As you can see in the picture there was a rocky area, turns, ramps, etc. It was a lot of fun!
