    Howdy folks!

    I've lusted for a Whizzer since I was a pup and saw the ad's in the magazines showing the happy kids who could afford one.. I was not one of those...

    When I came home with my new Whizzer, I was tickled pink. But my joy was short-lived. It took around 3 weeks to get the dealer educated about the paper-work required to license it in Illinois! And to fix the problems that the dealer's "mechanic" had caused...

    But I'm ridin' her now. And I dang near feel like the luckiest 12 year old in the neighborhood, nearly 5 decades later...

    At over 100 MPG I plan to use it for local errands.

    And my goal for further on down the road is to go electric.

    a most excellent story, from one 12 year old to another ;)

    it's always good to have another Whizzer-dedicated rider show up...get on down to the Heritage area and help us start collecting some Whizzer information, we're a bit slim as of right now...if you're seeking info, we have a few Whizzer savvy doods who'll be happy to talk about their babies with you :)

    welcome to MBc :cool:

    Born to be mild...

    Thanks for the warm welcome and the kind words, folks.
    You make me feel enough "at home" here to pass along
    the lyrics I started writing the night after I brought the
    new Whizzer home. With apologies to Steppenwolf....

    A Whizzer Song

    (Sung to the tune of "Born to be Wild")
    ( Words by Del Ogren Sept 12 2007)

    Born To Be Mild

    Get your Whizzer runnin'
    Stay off the big ol' highway
    Goin' for some groceries
    And to see what's on the way

    Yeah the world will go right past me
    Like a slow motion movie scene
    But I would have missed it all
    Without my Whizzer machine

    I like ridin' slowly
    Smelling every flower
    Avoiding an adventure
    At twenty miles an hour

    Yeah Darlin' we'll make it happen
    Think I know just what you like
    Once you ride out on the Whizzer
    We'll have to buy you a motorbike

    Like a true nature's child
    We were born, born to be mild
    We can't go that fast
    So the journey's gonna last

    Born to be mild
    Born to be mild
