Hey Dudes! Gday fr. Tasmania Australia The name's HybriDude. I've decided to kill off my alter ego, HybriPed. Many thanks to augidog for the suggestion. A fly-swatting Aussie Gday to all you Dudes and Dudesses (and that means you, sister!). I live in Tasmania, the original home of :taz: I'm a commuterDude. I must be the only bloke on the planet who believes that HTs have a future - as a HYBRID pedal/motor-assisted powered bicycle. In the past 2 years I've commuted 9,000 kms with my first HT. It still feels pretty good and maybe I'll get another year and 5,000 kms. I'll keep you posted. I'm looking forward to meeting you all.
