I was a Segway owner for roughly 3 years.
For most of that time, I was living in Mexico (not the US), where there were no restrictions on where I was allowed to use it.
Having the Segway was awesome – I lived around 3 1/2 miles outside of the downtown area, around 1 mile from the nearest grocery, and around 1/2 mile from the closest convenience store. Parking was often difficult for my truck, but the weather was gorgeous, so I would generally put on my backpack and take a ride on the Segway to go shopping, have a quick meal, do errands – everything you would do in your car, but faster.
People were always interested in it, and wanted to try it out, so I’d always have to leave some spare time to give a Segway demo or two.
I was really sad when I had to get rid of them after moving back to the states, because they weren’t really allowed to be used anywhere I lived.
