California is the first state to welcome the self balancing scooters

Good news for Californian fans of self-balancing scooters – new legislation will make the futuristic hoverboards legal to ride on roads and public pathways beginning next year.

Previously it had been illegal and use was supposed to be confined to private land with permission from the landowner. The new ruling does have conditions. Riders must wear safety gear and cannot operate their scooter while under the influence of drink or drugs. And landowners can still ban usage on their property even if that property is open to the public, such as malls and airports.

California leads the way when it comes to hoverboards…

California has been at the heart of the self-balancing scooter phenomenon as the home of trend-setting celebrities and nice weather as well of lots of techy startups and first-adopter entrepreneurs. So it is no wonder they are among the first to have to reconsider the ban on the increasingly popular hoverboards.

Part of the issue is how quickly the self-balancing scooter became so popular and usage sky-rocketed. Legislation could not keep up and law enforcement is left with only hopelessly outdated guidance. California’s law was decades old – put in place in the 70s and covering motorised skateboards using petrol. That’s a very different consideration from the quiet, electronic hoverboards we are seeing today.

So it may be that more states and cities will follow suit and update their laws. The ban persists in other areas such as London, where the Metropolitan police issued a statement confirming that using the scooters was not permitted in public. Their advice has gone largely unnoticed by enthusiastic fans who continue to ride their scooters in the capital and by fans in other places who will be hoping for law enforcement to take a more progressive view.

How to Ride a Two‐Wheeled Self‐Balancing Scooter

So you have a two-wheeled self-balancing scooter - now you want to learn how to ride it. Its super easy to learn and even easier than learning to ride a full size scooter! Get started with step 1 and you'll be smooth sailing in no time.

Part 1 of 2: Stepping On
1  Read the instruction manual first if included. (Don't worry if it doesn't include one, many brands don't). 
2  Turn on the scooter.
3  Check it has full battery on the battery gauge. If it doesn't, then charge it using the cable provided.
4  Position the scooter next to something you can hold on to.
5  Holding on to the object step one foot on.
There is often a light 'next to the battery gauge, if it turns green then it is safe to put your second foot on, if it is red then turn off the board and try again. If the problem persists contact the supplier.
6  Carefully place your second foot on.
If the scooter moves its fine, just re-position and start again.Keep going until you get it right.
7  Once you have achieved your balance, carefully point your toes forwards to go forwards.

Part 2 of 2: Learning to Maneuver 
1  Once you can go forwards without help, start practicing turning.
2  To turn clockwise, put your right toes down only. You will turn.
It is very important to keep your other foot horizontal, if you don't do this then it will counteract the turn and may unbalance you.
3  To turn anti-clockwise, put your left toes down.
4  To go backwards, lean back.
5  Handle slopes with care. Most mini self-balancing scooters can handle slopes of up to 15 degrees,  although it does vary with brands.
6  Watch your speed. When you achieve top speed you will normally hear a beep. This tells you that you have maxed out the speed and should slow down. Now you can start to do spins and go at decent speeds!

Just enjoy your time!

Self Balancing Scooters May Be A Life Changer

Two wheels smart self balancing scooters are slowly changing the world in various ways! 
If you pay attention to their benefits, you’ll surely notice they are the smarter way of personalized travel. With the prices of living increasing bit by bit, saving money is a no brainer. Why not save money with a two wheeled electric scooter? Instead of paying for gas or public transportation, simply use electricity and charge it. This choice is extremely obvious due to its cost efficiency and simplicity. This also cuts down on the harmful gases emitted by automobiles. Electricity is a renewable resource, but petroleum is not. Despite saving the ozone layer, you can save your wallet due to the extremely low cost of a scooter in comparison to any other personalized vehicle. And the two wheels vehichle is also easy to maintain and does not require any special treatment to perform. This also means that you can store away the scooter in a convenient location as well. There is no need for street side parking or even garages for your transportation device. You won’t even need to chain it up, just bring it with you because it’s that portable! These are but few of many important factors that should be considered when you step outside of your house and get in that car. Slowly but surely people will recognize the benefits of self balancing scooters. 
But today is your day.

Tips For Two Wheeled Self Balancing Scooters------CSPC

On December 16, 2015, in a released, written statement, CPSC chairman, Elliot F. Kaye, announced the agency's investigation into "the configuration of the battery packs and compatibility with the chargers."

In that statement, Kaye offered, "some tips, based on what we know so far, to help reduce the risk of an incident":

*  Avoid buying the product at a location (like a mall kiosk) or on a website that does not have information about who is selling the product and how they can be contacted if there is a problem. If you do not think you could find the seller again, were a problem to arise with your board, that should be a warning to you not to do business with them.

*  Do not charge a hoverboard overnight or when you are not able to observe the board.
Charge and store in an open dry area away from combustibles (meaning items that can catch fire).

*  Do not charge directly after riding. Let the device cool for an hour before charging.

*  If giving a hoverboard to someone for the holidays, leave it in its partially charged state. Do not take it out of the package to bring it to a full charge and then wrap it back up. Often, the product comes partially charged. Leave it in that state until it is ready to be used.

*  Look for the mark of a certified national testing laboratory. While this does not rule out counterfeits, the absence of such a mark means your safety is likely not a priority for that manufacturer.

*  Do not ride near vehicular traffic.

*  This tip needs to be reiterated: It is important to wear safety gear when using a hoverboard. We recommend the same safety gear that you would wear when riding a skateboard -- a skateboard helmet, and knee and elbow pads and wrist guards for protection from falls.

Riding two wheeled self balancing scooters is a fun and exciting experience, and do please use them in the right way. Safty is always the first consideration.

How Do Self Balancing Scooters Work?

  Self-balancing scooters are part of a new wave of technology that has swept through Australia. The self-balancing scooter is a revolutionary device that allows people to move around town effortlessly. You can ride them around the house or outdoors for hours of fun.

How Does the SB Slide Work?
Computer chip technology controls the unit and its dual motors. The user operates the device by standing on the platform and tilting forward, which increases the speed. The initial forward tilt makes the machine start moving. The next forward tilt causes the machine to accelerate. To slow down or stop, the user has to tilt backward.

How Fast Does It Go?
The self-balancing board goes approximately 10 kms per hour. The average walking person can only go around six km per hour. New users should be able to get a hang of the self-balancing board in a couple of minutes!

How Long Can I Ride It?
The self-balancing board can keep a charge for up to six hours. Charging time may take up to two hours. Purchase one for a little over $500 and start having immediate fun. The unit can provide hours of skateboarding fun for children and adults of all ages. Celebrities such as Justin Bieber have invested in the unit for their enjoyment. The high-quality products at SB are sure to provide a stellar experience.

How to ride a self-balancing scooter in 6 simple steps

So you have a two-wheeled self-balancing scooter - now you want to learn how to ride it. Its super easy to learn and even easier than learning to ride a full size Segway! Get started with step 1 and you'll be smooth sailing in no time.

1. Get On
Start with something to hold on to. To get on, place one foot on, then slowly shift your weight up onto that foot. Move the other foot on when all of your weight is on the board.

2. Stand Still
Next milestone is just standing still. It takes the brain around 30 seconds to calibrate and stop wobbling. I recommend you hold onto something for this 30 seconds. Try to look at a faraway object and not the ground.

3. Get Balanced
Next, slowly move near something to grab on to. As you grow more comfortable, slowly let go. I usually use my car and have people circle around my car 3 or 4 times. By the forth they are well ready to move away from the car. Make sure they know how to turn in place, some people think you have to curve around widely like in a bicycle. Fix that early so you don’t hit stuff.

4. Start Riding
You can slowly move away, and work on increasing speed. You might wobble out and fall here until you’ve done it for around 5 minutes total. I recommend having someone walk with you and if you start to wobble have them grab you and lift. That usually fixes it. I’d say this happens an average of .5 times per new rider.

5. Speed Up
Work toward faster and faster speeds! Practice moving over cracks and on hills sideways. Practice texture transitions.

6. Get Off
Just like how you got on, slowly balance on just one foot by shifting your weight onto just one of your feet while staying still. Move the other foot backwards when it is completely off the board. Then shift your weight onto the ground foot. This is probably the most dangerous part, because people think you can jump off of it like a skateboard and you really, really can’t do that. If you try to jump forward with both feet, you point your toes, the board stays under you and you usually wipe out bad.
