    if a man in the public eye dies tragically.
    he has not died in vain.
    he has entertained me....:yup:

    Wonder what caused this, a twist (?) of fate or something else?
    From the link, "In a tragic twist, the owner of Segway Inc. has died after he reportedly drove off a cliff on one of the devices."

    I am sorry for the guy...but

    30 feet???

    30 feet does not equal a "cliff" in my book. Ugh...idiot writers

    The last time we went to Chicago a few years ago the cops downtown were riding Segways. I can just imagine how they would work out for crowd control. Probably better suited to San Francisco. Not nearly as intimidating as a cop on a horse.

    Heard he was using an offroad model, perhaps he was jumping or see if it would traverse the cliff face, shouldve tried mudding first............

  14. I'm surprised the cops in Chicago fit on the segways. When I was there they had 300+ lb cops sweating while rolling around on quads.

    my first thought when i read this is did toyota buy segway out?

    CrazyIvan, remember this happened in england. they have cut all the cliffs down to 30 feet or so to ensure that no one can get hurt like this.
    after this, look for another 10ft. reduction in cliff height :D
