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!

Those are some good videos and pictures. I even gave you a couple of likes on youtube for good measure. I can't wait to be riding again and head back to that area, hopefully within the next month or so.

Glad you had fun in my neck of the woods. Hope you rode the skyway as well.

Awesome!!! Looks like you had a good time. That was kinda freaky with that couple goin down...glad they were OK. A simular thing happened when I was there back in May of 2009...but it was one guy on a rocket...he went off the side and tackled the wall...he was fine, though his bike was ok too, it was cosmetically screwed. Plastic was everywhere.

Here's some pics of me on the Dragon from 2009.
