(missed the original response here... gotta love the float to top! :)
Actually I can use public transit if the moped ever breaks down - thats what I do for rainy days anyways (I don't mind being rained on, but I mind having cars around me speeding with low traction ;) I did a count... riding into work (according to my speedo) is 44km (so a fair amount of riding each day) and takes me about 55 minutes to just over an hour.
Scary really... the last place I worked I rode the moped just about every summer/fall/spring day (a good 9-10 months of the year basically just stopping when things iced up) and that was only a 8 km ride total (but took about 25-30 minutes, higher levels of traffic)
So far the Tomos has been ultra reliable for me - in 3 years of running the only things replaced are: Flasher unit (twice, second time I went with an automotive one... had a couple pebbles get up underneath somehow and dent the thin metal on the flasher housing... then no more flasher. Now its a plastic shelled one that seems more durable and is the same voltage so far as I can tell), two bulbs (headlight and a flasher bulb), and I replaced the tires (which didn't technically need it, but I am just not fond of those "slick" stock tomos tires... anyone else find the wet weather and gravel performance of those tend to be fairly bad?
