well, I never thought i'd be someone posting in this thread but here I am...
Up until two weeks ago I had been on a scooter zero times in my life, skateboards zero times and one time @Chris let me try out his boosted board... until a recent trip to Paris.
In our adventure to try as much coffee and carbs as possible we saw the Lime Scooters everywhere. She finally convinced me to just try it, I was skeptical as hell.
I LOVED it.
(Except for the part when I fell after 90 minutes of developing too much confidence and being distracted by Notre Dame.)
Weather permitting I think I could cruise the 25 blocks to the office in NYC in under 10 minutes. I see myself either being an owner or daily renter of a Lime or Bird electric scooter when it is allowed in New York.
I can see that this definitely requires regulation. I was bombing around wherever and occasionally going the wrong direction on a one way and pedestrian areas. I'm sure the Parisians aren't loving Lime at the moment.
