Default I'm weird. Even my dogs think so.

I did some consulting work a few months back. Helped a fellow motocross/enduro rider learn the mysterious ways of a robotic survey suite. I spent two days with him and his crew(s) explaining all manner of survey items and digital formats to get his information into AutoCad and then how to make AutoCad sit up and sing. It's second nature for me, I can do most of what I taught in my sleep.

He asked what my fees were, and I replied that motocross/enduro guys needed to stick together and it was fun hanging with him and his family(free meals whoohoo!). I also added jokingly that I wanted a unicycle. Guess what showed up on my doorstep today?

A unicycle. A Nimbus mountain edition even. High $$ affair. I can't ride it, it tosses me off the instant I have both hands clear of a wall or something solid. It's fun to try tho. Works the core hard and makes you have to WANT to balance. The dogs? Hysterical over the thing thus far. it's an evil thing that's trying to hurt their two-legs. Once I'm up and zipping around on this contraption I'll try and get vids of the dogs herding a unicycle.

looking forward to that Brembo.

Once the dogs get used to the unicycle try on some tall stilts.

I never got the hang of a unicycle but I can rock the stilts.

My parents bought me a unicycle when I was a kid and I used to hang on to the back of the basketball upright post, which would land me on the lawn versus the concrete. I do recall it testing my patience but I finally got it and once you figure it out, you'll laugh at yourself for all the punishment you subjected yourself to....I agree...it's mostly core and coordinating the movements of your midsection to stay balanced.....

Good luck....patience....
