Cool, glad had a good time. I was down there mid March, rode Dragon twice, and all over everywhere else LOL, about 1300 miles over 6 days.

Missing links to vids (edit: LOL, you posted the vid at same time I posted) ....My son forgot to bring his gopro when we went, I was not happy!

Mid way through second pass had pulled over to allow for a more fun pace...was a tractor trailer ahead so decided to lay back a bit!
