Thank you
Hope someday I will be able to ride my Wing as comfy as sitting in my living room, confidently.

You look nicely relaxed Emir. Picture yourself on a couch (fast one) with handlebars
Enjoy and ride safe,

Good job Emir! Working on technique is prime for keeping yourself safe. Keep practicing and after time you'll be well seasoned on your Wing. Ride safe!
