    i-hover is obviously the best,but you may have to sign up to a i-hover-your-bank-a/c to get the best deal.

    Havent some of them just recently been recalled? People told to throw them in the bin and get tgeir money back. Fire hazard in the charger I think.

    No there not..it's about technicalities... although @Armytwowheels was pulled for using hers on the motorway in France but only because she refused to pay the toll citing that it had 2 wheels not 4 and was therefore free.

    I see a vision fellow funsters.....a vision when going to a warners show will no longer be a case of avoiding the disabled scooter but these people could tour round on hoverboards shopping to their hearts content....no more dog's in prams and push chairs..simply let them hover.

    The futures bright the futures hover..

    Off to the dragons den for my investment

    I'm thínking of converting an old Flymo.
    It won't have any wheels therefore it can't be illegal anywhere.

    It's a lot less bover with a hover!:xgrin:

    Just added one to my toy cupboard. As I have never asked a silly question since joining Fun, can I have my turn now please?

    Can one obtain Town&Country tyres for these beasts so that I will be able to use it at P'borough if the grass is a tad moist?

    That is a very good point Dave .if a pubic hair was to get wound around the mechanism it could be lethal

    Please be sure you know what you're ordering as we Back to the Future experts do not consider this new generation of 'hoverboards' to be the real deal!
