Sorta like the Sit-N-Spin but you won’t get dizzy and throw up your animal crackers on the RYNO. It’s a one-wheeled electric vehicle, part bike, part Segway (but cooler looking), & it rolls along at 10mph with a range of about 10-miles.
If you think your golf obsession is unhealthy now, wait until you’re up all night reviewing the stats that your Game Golf tracking system will generate.
