It occurred to me this afternoon that I have the only hybrid vehicle in my hometown...and it's not a Prius, a Civic or Accord or any $30,000.00 plus automobile. It's a $500.00 bicycle. After all, a hybrid vehicle is simply one that can run on at least two different power sources, in our case, gas or muscles. Having had it on my mind all day, the gears started churning in my head and I thought about my provincial goverment's latest promise to provide rebates of up to $2000.00 to any resident of Manitoba purchasing a hybrid vehicle this year. Well, I know I'm not gonna get far with it, but I have this real urge to fill out an application just for kicks. I mean, they can't argue that it isn't a hybrid because it most certainly is.....and it gets triple the mileage of anything available at any automobile dealership. Perhaps, they'll argue that because it's a two stroke, it pollutes too much to qualify as a low emmissions vehicle.....if so, Dax here I come for one of your new 4-strokes. Yeah, this is probably just a pipe dream....I just wanted to stir things up a bit.......and can you imagine cashing in a $2000.00 rebate check for something that only cost five bills? That'd be sweet.
