This is madness

OK, 760 Km on this over-powered motorized skateboard. I've been called asshole, Casey Neistat, skater... whatever... and the most challenging part is not actually riding at speed or navigating terrain. It's the assholes in cars that scare the crap out of me. In one day alone I had 2 seperate vehicles cut in front of me. The first one I *just* managed to slow down before T-boning some jackass in a delivery truck. The second was a fucking Ford Mustang who decided to turn before looking in front of me. I had to jump off my board and stop. Fortunately I wasn't going too fast for either ride. But it still scares the hell out of me. 

My knees are taking a beating. Specifically, my lead left knee. I've tried riding goofy but it doesn't work too well so far. 

My pain isn't too bad. Not as bad as when I had the manual skateboard and needed to push with my right foot. That was agony.

I'm thinking I'll keep this board until next summer. By then I might get a Honda Grom and get a motorcycle license. I wouldn't need anything larger the 125 cc and the bike is pretty cheap ($3500 cdn). Time will tell.

But until then I'll keep riding and taking photos along the way.

Stampede 2017 starts in less than 3 weeks. Pretty stoked.
