Just got back from my short but well deserved vacation to Branson Mo. Nothing out of the ordinary to report, just one little uni note. I was in a theme park out there and I was inside one of those old-timey toy stores when I saw, nailed to the wall, a Howdy-Doody Puppet sitting on a unicycle (one that looked exactly like KMM’s (King MUni Man’s). I couldn’t believe it. I was so happy just to see one. I got a chance to ride one that looked the same but wasn’t nailed to the wall. The tire had NO air in it and the 16” wheel was a lot smaller than I am used to. Add that with not riding a uni in five days and you can figure out the outcome. Yep, fell right on my ass. God how embarrassing.
Bought a pair of Chuck Taylor Converse Hi-tops and I soon found out that they are not good for unicycling today.
Anyway I got home today and I started to look on the forums but then I realized that I was in no mood to read about unicycling, I had to go for a ride. Put all my gear on, good thing I did because I fell on my elbows when I tried a free mount. Was I ever happy that I was wearing my elbow pads. Anyway I got on it finally and idled a bit just to get a feel for it and I went out for a ride. I got to see some people I knew, ran some errands and got several honks, waves, thumbs-up, and cheers. It felt good. I also rode along a curb that was only 3 inches wide for several meters, which felt even better.
I was very sad to see that I was outbid on this unicycle on eBay by only three dollars. That sucked. I was thinking about it all vacation.
Does anyone know where I can get a trials Uni with the miyata airseat?
