So here I am cruising down the road and I feel the need to adjust my…uh
um…position on the seat. I use my hands (duh!) to realign the “gear.” This
clues me in to the fact that I can ride with my hands to the side (rather than
flailing about.) Even though I learned to juggle (basic 3, inbetween, no loop)
long ago, I thought it would be too complicated to do while unicycling and never
even tried. I was quite surprised when I tried juggling 3 rocks (all I could
find at the time). I don’t lose my balance but sometimes miss a catch. Then I do
two in one hand (left or right!) I’m still quite sloppy but I’m just startin’
(and not fallin’!)
Now for the questions!
I can’t idle! Do I need to hold onto something to get the feeling?
How do I smoothen my turns? I can turn within about a 6’ radius but it’s a
jagged, “tire-wearing” (you can hear it) turn. Not much lean, just hard/easy,
I keep telling my wife, kids, and friends that it’s not easy and really takes
talent to be a “Clown!” They refuse to see the seriousness here!
This is addictive! What’s next? Stay on Top! Steve
