I get to work on my 49cc moped. I've been doing this for about 6 months now and I doubt I'll ever commute by car again, I used to walk but now I don't live close enough to work. I would bicycle but I live in Wellington and the homeward journey would end with a climb up Maupua hill, add in the Wellington weather and that is basically out.
I've been paying a bit of attention recently and I'm starting to wonder why two wheeled motor transport is ignored in the debate.
If you read the media the options are car or bus and maybe bicycle or carpooling if you are very brave.
Motorcycles and mopeds are cheap to buy, cheap to run and free to park.
Any ideas on why they are ignored?
