Getting started is a little tricky. I found that I had to gas it all the way to get moving. This thing doesn't have a lot of low end torque, so getting going with a 200lbs man on it was difficult. Once going I could get to a top speed of about 25MPH. I have not yet added the better carburetor or muffler. Maybe that will help.
Steering was a little counter-intuitive. Its not like a skateboard, more like a snowboard where your leading foot does a lot of the work while your trailing foot maintains balance. I learned to always keep my knees slightly bend and springy.
I found the brake to be useless. the front wheel has enough friction in the hub to immediately slow you down if you are not actively pushing the gas. when I did hit the brake the wheelman slowed so fast that I was unable to maintain my balance, soI fell and broke my elbow.
All in all, this thing is so cool. everyone stops and asks me about it. It's not for kids. I would say 14 or 15 and up. For adults getting on this, don't expect to be rocketing off through the streets of your town, though 25MPH seems VERY fast when you are on this thing. And above all, wear a helmet! I even suggest knee and elbow pads until you have gotten used to it.
You should take it apart every once and a while and tighten up the rollers that allow the wheels to "float" or take it to your local motorcycle/pocket bike shop and have them do a tune up.
It will take a day or two of wipe outs to learn but after that its awesome! (This coming from someone who does not surf, skate board, or snow board) the learning curve is much better if you do any of those things.
Where a helmet and have fun, its an awesome product.
