...For a Harley building unicycle riding nut I do alright once in awhile. lol
No kidding? I always wanted a unicycle. The ability to fall in any direction appeals to me. 360 degrees of potential failure. I like it.

...Not really 360 bro, once you get used to a Unicycle the worst you'll do is kick the thing away from you when you mess-up.
So my boys can learn I ran ropes in the garage they can reach up to when mounted.
See, use your noodle and you can make things safer. lol
What's a good brand/size unicycle?

...This is where I order all of ours from:
Learning for an adult is based on height and weight.
You want a good sized wheel.
A decent adult 24" trainer runs about $190
You can find them cheaper but you will suffer.
If you ever plan on riding in the hills start with an off-road model.
They cost a bit more but are well worth it and easier to learn on too.

...You sly dog, moved this part of the thread perfectly. ;-)
I'm definitely getting one this summer. My girlfriend will think I'm out of my mind, and likely to kill myself, so I'll have to buy it first, then tell her. ;)

...When she sees you doing an idle peddle you will be: The Man!
That's the best way to learn balance and get your legs in the game.
Idling on a Unicycle is the whip ;-)
