What's a Segway? Imagine you're standing on a small platform with a wheel next to each foot and bar with hand grips in front of you. That's about it. Happily, the Segway is self balancing, using computers and motors to stay upright. It's also very easy to control: to go forward, you lean forward. To go backward, lean backward. To go left or right you lean the steering bar...yep...left or right. Segways can cruise along at about 12 miles per hours making them a hot trend in law enforcement and, of course, the tourist industry.

P.S. My adventure club took a Segway tour of Washington, DC in October 2008 and we loved every second of it!
