Ben (from Bencredible.com) has been wanting to buy a Segway for at least a year now and has a fully pimped out model picked out. However, before yesterday, he had never actually ridden a Segway.
So yesterday, Ben, Cariann, and I took a Segway tour in Minneapolis to see what all the hype is about. Here’s a quick slideshow of the shots I grabbed. Keep in mind that I took incredible risks to get these shots for you by taking pictures while riding my Segway at times. A total violation of the rules!

We had a great time on the Segways, and learned a few things about the city. In our case, we were more interested in the Segways than the history.
As I explained to Ben yesterday, riding a Segway is a lot of fun, but I can’t think of a time when I’d ride on rather than a bike. He responded by explaining that he should buy a penthouse condo downtown, and stock it with 4 Segways so he, Cariann, and another couple could ride them around downtown to places like Britt’s. Maybe he’s on to something there?
