I think motorized bicycles are Therapy and a Necessity. When my Wife tells me to go and ride my bike, she knows I need it. I have the Whizzer at work and at lunch when things are not going well I get the bike out, and depending on the level of stress I run it with or without the baffle. I start out doing figure 8's in the large parking lot usually going fast at first and using the compression release to slow down, I do that with the baffle out it blows fire out the exhaust with a lot of popping and bangs, it doesn't take long and all my stress is gone. A simple bike with the sound of a well oiled machine propelling you along and the stress just melts away. And if you are lucky someone is walking the sidewalk and as you go by you let her blast one of those loud bangs (Oh what Fun). Have fun, Dave

PS: Merry Christmas .trk

Therapy! I need to go to the shop just to ride around the block a few times.
When I'm working on it, I'm lost.

Re: MB's - Therapy or a Necessity

Definitely both. I could use some therapy right about now. Supposed to be 45 today, would be nice for a ride. Too bad my bike is in many pieces still (and now I have to go buy a new axle when stores are open again)

I'm riding no matter what later this week, supposed to be 60 degrees F! It's been too long since I've seen the sun shine, or rode a bike.

Re: MB's - Therapy or a Necessity

Motor biking is therapy. .trk

The transportation to work and saving $1055 yearly is icing on the cake (That will pay for my pusher trailer and alternator/electrical system).

It's also therapeutic to work on my bikes too..weld

Re: MB's - Therapy or a Necessity

Even planning and dreaming up mods to do to it are therapy. Spending long times on the internet to find parts.

Re: MB's - Therapy or a Necessity

I am in Utah right now. I wish I had brought one of the bikes with me. I could use a ride about now. I have experienced snow on the road for the last few days, not a menace though, just on the sides. Ill be back in Long Beach on new years day. Have fun, Dave

Re: MB's - Therapy or a Necessity

Neat times hit the nail on the head, I am cheap and broke and these bikes are cheap and most times broke :) A match made in heaven. I can't afford therapy or want to be taking drugs, so this is how I get my stress out and free my mind. Went for a long ride today, sunny and low 70's It was great "rub rub rub" I am so so blessed:)

Re: MB's - Therapy or a Necessity

I so need a ride on my bike. It has been cold and cloudy and I have not felt well. I found a new victim abandon in the park, it is a mountain bike it is a little beat up but has good bones. I think it wants to be a MB I think it would look best as a Military looking MB. Think it would look best as a desert or a green camo! Hope all are having fun. Dave
