    I wish this was closer than 540 miles to me. And on my anniversary weekend too.....might be a hard sell to the wife, unless I can get her interested in 'Dirt Drags' :idea:

    Hi Bob,
    It is 950 miles one way for me, however I must attend as the defending Whizzer champion. I haven't and don't plan to make a single change to my Whizzers or my new 50 CC [can't mention name to avoid drama] proto-type. My proto-type is stock and I just want to compile information for our dealers. This year will be more for gathering information as opposed to winning. I know of several dealers that will be there to win the new 50 CC class with our new XXX brand and should prove to be fun.
    I am looking forward to seeing my friends more than I am for any other reason to attend. I will be taking my 1950 Whizzer Sportsman [for competition], my 1999 Whizzer [to ride], and my new "XXX" 50 CC [for testing].

    Hope to see many of you there,

    Looking forward to seeing everyone in KY

    Have fun,

    The show must go on!

    Just a quick note to everyone requesting motor repair, parts, and special machine work [mill head, cylinder porting, etc].

    I will be starting my limited show/event calendar of events starting in about a week. My first stop is at Kenny Thomas's fun weekend [starts on a thursday]. My next event will be Portland, IN.

    Just letting everyone know that service will be planned around the show schedule.

    Have fun,

    Hi Quenton,

    Will you be able to accept parts that are in need of some Q-magic at these events? It would save at least on shipping one way!

    Hi Bob,

    The norm at these events is to "mob" my van during the parking process. There is usually a small crowd awaiting my arrival and always want to see what parts I managed to bring. Most often many of my parts are sold before I even unload my bikes. And at every event parts are submitted for my return trip. So bring the goodies, save the shipping costs.

    Looking forward to seeing you all at Dawson Spring, KY

    Have fun,

    Good news,
    Dawson Springs, KY is still on the map, and we were welcomed with open arms once again. The 2009 event was a great success, but wish more were able to attend. Many missed the greatest event of 2009, and for the many that attended let me borrow a phrase "It just doesn't get any better than this".

    As the defending Whizzer record holder it was my duty to drive the 800++++ mile trip, and was informed early that "many" were on the way to change the history books for 2009.

    Because of my busy schedule with the new motorbike company I wasn't able to make any changes to my Whizzer race bike. Because of limited space I wasn't able to take a bike for the show, a bike to ride, a bike to run on the "Roller Road', a bike to test the "Dirt Drags", and my new proto-type. I took my 1999 to ride, made a special clutch for my Dirt Drag bike to make it work on the Roller Road, skipped the show bike entry, and took my proto-type for stock testing [finished 3 place on the Roller Road, and first on the track].

    Many of the foremost experts were there, however we did miss Terry & Audry McAllister [they had commitments with family high school Graduations]. We did manage to take several nice rides during the event, and the last ride only included high powered Whizzers & Cushmans that seldom slowed below 35 MPH and often peaked near 50 MPH. Only 3 Whizzers attempted the final ride where the hills were many and lots of power was needed to complete the course. Gerd, Henry, and myself found the terrian no match for our modified Whizzers. Of the 3 Whizzers on the ride only Henry's had the OHV motor, and both Gerd & myself sported modified flat head motors.

    And now for the results of the competition......
    Roller Road
    50 CC motorbike
    Ron Dow [Texas] 40 MPH [EZ Motorbike]
    Mike McWhirter [Illinois] 35 MPH [EZ Motorbike]
    Quenton [NC] 34 MPH [EZ Motorbike]

    Whizzer [New Edition]
    Roller road
    Quenton [NC] 64 MPH @ 6965 RPM Stock [Whizzer]
    Quenton [NC] 61 MPH @ 6590 RPM Modified [Whizzer]

    Whizzer [Vintage]
    Kenny Thomas [KY] 57 MPH Stock [Whizzer]

    Whizzer [OHV]
    Henry Becht [IN] 65 MPH [Whizzer]

    Dirt Drags
    50 CC motorbike
    Quenton [EZ motorbike]

    Modified Whizzer
    Harmon Morress [OH] [Whizzer]

    Stock Whizzer
    Quenton [NC] [Whizzer]

    OHV Whizzer
    Not sure of winner, but it was either Henry Becht or Mike McWhirter [Whizzer]

    One last note, Kenny changed the Roller Road [bigger load] to reflect more accurate road speeds, and in my case my bike goes faster on the street than on the Roller Road. My digitial Speedometer logged my Whizzer at 66 MPH, however the Roller Road tests only netted a 64 MPH reading. I suspect many may find their motorbikes just a little faster than the test would indicate. I like the readings on the "lean" side [more accurate], and the extra load will quickly flush out the weaker motors.

    Have fun,
