Dear GOD!

$5,000!!!

Ok, it’s only the iSeries, not the pSeries. The i is a lot more expensive than the p series.

How will I learn how to use the Segway HT?
The Segway company will provide training for each purchaser. The Segway HT is engineered to be easy to ride, but, in order to ensure that you are prepared for safe and enjoyable riding, a Segway specialist will show you how to properly operate the Segway HT. You may bring one friend to the training session for no extra charge. Your friend must be 16 years or older to receive the training from the Segway company. Between February 1 and July 31, 2003, the Segway company will host training at least once each week in Bedford, New Hampshire, and Los Angeles, and at least once each month in Seattle, San Francisco, Phoenix, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Atlanta, New York City, Baltimore, and Orlando, Florida. The Segway company will e-mail you a training schedule approximately 30 days before your Segway HT is scheduled to ship. You will be responsible for scheduling your attendance as well as for arranging transportation to and from your training session. If you don’t attend scheduled training within 30 days after you receive the first notice, the Segway company will send you a second e-mail notice and you must attend by the date you are required to complete your purchase. (See “When will I get my Segway HT after I place my deposit?” above). Note: You must complete a Segway HT training session before Segway will ship your Segway HT.

So in order to buy one, you need to fly yourselft to a locaton to complete your purchase? Sure, a good idea, but wouldn’t that hinder the selling?

What fly? Some of use are lucky enough to live close by. :slight_smile:
Now if only I was lucky enough to have $4950 that I didn’t need.

Yeah, Farmer Joe isn’t going to use a Segway on his ranch out in the boonies.
They are covering most urban areas that are in their target-audience, where people will actually use them.

They have 14 areas spread out around the US — thats not too bad.

Seems funny that they have a training session in San Francisco… didn’t they pass a law against segways in the city??

Tom

I think the law is still “proposed” in SF. In any case one would still be able to ride on in the streets.

begins to get idea to beg my mom into getting me it for college training course…can i be exempt if i have already ridden them??
<-- look at my picture

If you read the first post in the thread, you will realize why the thread is called what it is called. Reading is key.

Segways are all over the Manchester downtown area. DEKA Research and Development has a small fleet on hand so that the employees can check one out to go to lunch or run errands or whatever.

My point is nobody is going to click on the link that says: Segway on GMA!!!

Now people are going to click on the link thats says: Segway for sale

  • Warranty, parts: 1 year

Thats a pretty decent warranty.

Yeah, Fussion Coffee and Tea (located near deka and segway) now have a segway. They use it to make deliverys.

Fussion is the engineers fav. coffee house. A segway engineer was the person who told me about it when I was working @ FIRST over the summer.
