Right on man! I don't abuse my mopeds but at the same time, I ride mine and make it work. The ride to work is downhill but coming home is mostly uphill so my little ped gets a workout. I put it in front of the turbo heater at work and it helped big time. I think I'll start heating the engine up before I head for home then I won't have to ride hunched over grabbing the choke for about 3 blocks in order to keep it running. :-)

Glad to hear that I'm amongst die-hard ped riders on this list. I have been kind of entertaining the idea of making a third wheel that clamps on the side of the ped and sticks out about 2 feet (like a sidecar would) to act as a guide so I don't have the tendency to fall down in the snow. I figure that a dirt bike wheel and fork combo would work well for this. The idea of having a set of ski's was mentioned to me but that sucks if you hit bare concrete. A 3rd wheel would certainly make things safer.

BTW: I'm 29 years old! :-)
