About My 2nd Ride on the V11 EUC

Today, I rode my InMotion V11 EUC for the second time. This ride went 72x better than my first. Spoiler: I wore my motorcycle boots.

Today, I rode my InMotion V11 electric unicycle (EUC) for the second time. Ever. This ride went incredibly better than the first time.

To summarize how much better, the first time I rode the unicycle I held onto the fence of a tennis court starting and stopping. This afternoon on that same tennis court, I did figure-8’s between the tennis nets. Is that what they’re called, tennis nets?

What was different from riding the V11 today versus my first ride in May? Motorcycle boots. I had a hunch that using my motorcycle boots would give my feet and ankles more stability and control the unicycle better. I was 200% right. During my first ride on the unicycle, I wore Reebok Nanos — lesson learned.

I rescued my Sidi motorcycle boots from storage weeks ago. I loved the boots and I rode them with my Repsol Honda CBR1000RR and later my Yamaha XT-250 (aka THG LYF). I freakin love the boots, and I’m so damn happy I can put them back to work again.
