now y'all can finally see what I look like (hope no one is too scare) 😆
I am sitting on the stairs of my house on two pillows (as it was only reasonable looking background) with the phone at arms length or the front camera "adds weight"
My hair is probably too long and untidy but at my age I'm glad to still have it 😆

comments/boosts OK (I doubt anyone is going to want to flirt with this "old uncle")

Obligatory 5555,5km odometer picture - passed that a week ago on the #unuscooter.
Recently had to have the front brake repaired (replaced on warranty in fact - apparently things were beyond repair). Other than that, things still seem mostly fine.
Unu recently announced a follow-up product that's going to go on sale some time next year. For myself, I don't think I'll be looking for a different scooter as long as this one keeps going though.
