Maybe the goggles didn't have a lock and chain on them.


On another note....
The value of most mobility machines would qaulify a finders keepers (asshat) for grand theft, have fun with that.
I found a segway? Next time you 'find" something along those lines, you ought to consider turning it in to the nearest LEO. If someone 'found" my disabled person's golfcart, you bet there'd be a vigorous search for it, using any and all legal channels.

Huh? Is the owner dead? did you know him?

Huh?


The victim is deceased. Yes I knew him. The OP meant for this post to be an attack on the former "owner" knowing full well that he read these forums.

BRCP, tell me the story. What's up with that? Did the owner of this die on the playa or taken from the event?

Sorry to hear it. Please relay a message to the individual's next of kin regarding the Segway. They should have the paperwork (including serial number) and can contact @starkravingrad to make arrangements for the return of the property. Have to say, though, I'm surprised that if someone knew of a mutant vehicle that drove off with a handicapped person's mobility vehicle, nothing would have been said or posted about that...

This entire thread is just confusing. Who died? Who found what? Can I have the segway?

:) Drama, drama. Nothing is safe from it.

I don't trust a thing that BRCP says, to be honest. I've witnessed too many sub par fabrications.

Lol, I definitely dont want the segway. Feel like thats just some bad ju ju. Terrible to hear about the disabled man getting his vehicle jacked though. Kinda reminds me of a thread I read not too long ago about attaching tazers to bikes for some kind of sercurity. Shocking isnt it... :P

Yeah man so me and my friends where walking around during the man burn and found this motor home and it had been abaondoned, there was nobody there, and the keys were in it so we dragged it home and since onbody claimed it we took it back to Encino. I am wondering why the op did not take the expensive machine to playa info and turn it in, rather then taking if home with them.

What the fuck. this kind of gets me mad. Leave my shit alone, if you "find" something on the playa I left it there and I am coming back for it. DONT FUCKING TOUCH IT. and I am not an idiot or stupid, I just thought everyone would respect my stuff, knowing it is not their stuff, and just leave it alone. thank you

I am begining to think that there might be some people who come to Black Rock City to steal. We be easy pickings

I for one would give anything to meet the "disabled burner" that uses a Segway as a mobility tool.

Think about that for a second.

..oh I forgot, he's not only disabled but using a Segway, but also dead now.. BRCP?



I was making up more believable stories in Kindergarten.. :lol:

I in fact know a disabled burner who uses a segway to get around along with having a license for a vehicle.

not every person with a disability has one related to what appears to be their physical mobility.


if you want to meet him come to lamplighters at around 5pm in center camp.

ANYTHING YOU SAY?? PONY UP MY FRIEND, LESSON TIME! (so you started lying in Kindergarten and you are proud of that I hear?)

I really don't understand what you mean? I am disabled, I collect disability, I have a permit to park in those spaces at the market etc. I get a permit from DMV to drive either my golf cart or my mule around the playa. I also have a schwinn scooter and I use it standing up at BRC. I am 62 years old a vietnam vet and I have difficulty walking although I can bench press 180lbs. As a lot of folks my age are dealing with ageing as best we can. There is no excuse for someone taking someones vehicle, be it a bike, scooter, skateboard etc. What I see in this post is Grand Theft and then folks somehow or another justifying it.

and for people that want to judge others, perhaps look in the mirror first if you want to see someone who is truly handicapped!

Lol.. easy, gramps. I was doubting the legitimacy of BRCP's story, not digging on disabled people.

To me, a Segway seems like one of the most dangerous/poor/rare choices for a disabled person as it requires balance and interaction with all 4 limbs. Those things are dangerous to a fully able person, let alone a disabled one.

Now, puppy kicking and eye poking. Time to get back to that.

I wouldn't rush to go throwing blame at anybody. For starters, it boggles my mind that BRCP (or anybody else) would have watched a mutant vehicle grab somebody's vehicle (never mind that it's a physically disabled person's mobility vehicle) out in the deep playa and drive off and not mention anything to anybody. Even if it was just a beat up bike, that seems like something that someone would raise a flag on, and this was much spendier than a bike. Did the witnesses just happen to forget? A packed and loaded bus full of gear that gets parked/stored after the playa, and then not dug through for a couple months certainly seems plausible, as does the original poster's story.

As for taking stuff off the playa, I'm mixed on that one. Leaving a locked (I'm assuming undrive-able) heavy item out in deep playa seems like a bad move - once the party breaks up there aren't any landmarks for the owner to come back to, and if it's not driveable that's quite a haul/drag. If it were me, I'd have thrown it on the bus too. Of course, I'd have dropped it at playa info…. but it's possible they didn't know or just didn't think of it at the time. If their intent was just to swipe someone's segway, that could have already been easily accomplished, and posting here would serve no purpose.

Except to get the code so they can make the thing work without a key in their hand.
I know, I already said that, and I still think that is why they posted here, regardless of the BS stories about it that followed.

That could be possible, OED, but I'm pretty sure vehicle theft technology has reached a level where locks and codes can be breached without too much trouble. Then again, they never stole any segways in that gone in 60 seconds movie, you never know...

True that, but the fact that they came here hoping for an easy workaround makes me think these kids aren't smart enough to get around a locked laptop, yet along figure out how to bugger the thingy on a segway.

I have seen one torn apart, and they are fucked without a code, and you get the code from Segway via serial number for that specific infokey controller that is specific for that unit, and the serial number is NOT on the unit, only the original purchaser has that

Oh, the plot thickens!!


I lost sight of my moonmobile, for about 6 hours, good thing it's too heavy & bulky to cram in a bus.

How could someone 'forget' a "lost" segway packed away in a bus?

Penalties. a holder who fails to report, pay or deliver property within the prescribed time is required to pay interest at the rate of 18 percent annually on the property or value thereof from the date the property should have been reported, paid or delivered. A holder who fails to report, pay or deliver property within the prescribed time or fails to perform other duties imposed is required to pay, in addition to interest as provided above, a civil penalty of $200 for each day the report, payment or delivery is withheld or the duty is not performed, up to a maximum of $5,000.

A holder who willfully fails to report, pay or deliver property within the prescribed time or willfully fails to perform other duties imposed is also subject to a civil penalty of $1,000 for each day the report, payment or delivery is withheld or the duty is not performed, up to a maximum of $25,000, plus 25 percent of the value of any property that should have been but was not reported.

In addition, if an examination of the records of a person results in the disclosure of reportable property, the Treasurer may assess the cost of the examination against the holder at the rate of $200 a day for each examiner or a greater amount that is reasonable and was incurred. However, the assessment may not exceed the value of the property found to be reportable.
