The Segway is often derided for being an over-complex method of transportation. We can see the argument, considering that a bike or an e-bike would provide nearly all of the same capabilities for much less money... but the Segway is still cool and appeals to our geeky sides. That said, the video pasted after the break shows that there's plenty of fun to be had on a Segway, and it also proves the point that people are intrinsically interested in the self-balancing machine. The BMX rider in the scene seems to be a bit irritated that people are just as impressed by the nerdy Segway and its rider as they are of him. No need to be a hater, dude! Watch the video after the break.
