    The GSL Magnets get noticed

    Today is business in the burbs day.
    I had to go to the bank and pay my storage bill so I thought I'd take the Whizzer.

    The Whizzer doesn't have a license plate although it does have a bracket (Which I like to cover up) and I have one of Ed's large GSL magnets on it.

    I was waiting at a light and heard someone yell "Peter...er Don"...I looked around and it was our own Infidel. He'd seen the magnet and wanted to find out who was riding a Whizzer with one.

    This is also the first day I'd used the secure container law too. I had to go in BBT.

    Umm, What?

    You stored your sidearm (and you tend to carry quite a hogleg, do you not?) in exactly what "secured" compartment on said Whizzer?

    Or was this during a different excursion?

    I had a Ruger Super Blackhawk today.
    The secured container is the rack pack on the rear. I wasn't ever far enough that I couldn't see it, even in the bank.

    Just curious...

    Was the Whizzer "secured" in any way while you were inside? Kryptonite lock, etc?

    Cabled to a light pole at the bank. The storage area is fenced in so I didn't bother there.

    Were you afraid that someone was going to take a whizzer?

    Darn right!

    I'm still hot over the two ATV's that got stolen.
    Speaking of which, it's taken 4 years but I think I have a line on who took them. I may just buy a new ax handle for that.

    I was hoping you were going to pull over and talk, but I was testing the new video glasses which work very well on it.....anyway, I started chasing the Fire Marshall's car.

    It's a motorbike from the 40's. It's basically a Schwinn bike with a 154cc engine. I have 2 of them.

    I had never heard of a Whizzer before.

    I was watching American Pickers (great show, btw) the other night and they rescued a Vespa Ape from some old barn. I don't know why, but I want one of these!

    That could quite possibly be the single most horrendous-looking automotive abomination in all of existence.

    I was headed to the dump, and I lost sight of you on the Whizzer. What's it's top speed?....like 15 MPH

    They are only allowed to go 35. They have a restrictor plate in the carb. something must have broken in mine because it goes 50 (Of course I'd never do it). I plan to get it fixed soon

    Because of the belt driven clutch, it is a little slow getting up to speed and in that spot where you saw me, I poke along anyway. I got pulled there once and it took a while to convince the deputy that it would only go 35 and he needed to go back to radar school and learn to work the thing before he pulled anymore elderly people just saving some gas.
