A lot of you guys/girls talk about how fast you go/want to go on your boards. I don’t often see anyone say that they want to go ~22km/h.
I built my board (nothing spectacular) and have been riding/commuting daily-ish since December 2017 and the fastest I go is about 22km/h. I often commute at stupid o-clock in the morning through the CBD (Wellington NZ) so the amount of traffic/cars/people are not a problem… but the thought of some random fault in my board and me flying off definitely limits my top speed (this happened the other day - phase wires unplugging themselves = motor locking up).
So how do you justify/rationalise it?
I used to ride a sports bike (1000c Aprilia) too fast for a few years, took huge risks so it’s not like I don’t like excitement. I kind of like riding my board fast-ish too, but I kind of like my hands and how they help me earn a living (software dev).
ps - I wear a helmet and gloves. I’d be a fool not to.
