Default Who needs Summer to ride

Our second trip to the Dragon this year (1/12/14) we had it ALL to ourselves!!!! TRIED to keep up with T.C. (aka the bearded one)...Great day to ride!

I had added some music to the video, but Youtube said it was a copyright infringement, so it's been removed and is now mostly engine noise!

Enjoy the ride along...

Just remember in cold weather tires are hard and don't stick to the roads

That's how I feel when I try to keep up with half crazy and squatch. I've learned to just enjoy my ride and let them do their thing.

Yeah, we had about 100 to 150 miles on the tires before our 1st run and this was our 2nd run on the Dragon that day...But good advise!

I only caught him when cars slowed him down...You missed the best part at about 4:50 in the video...

Nope just the rider is slower!!! Plus the Cross bike are 100 pound lighter...Plus a 220+ rider doesn't help, either!!

Looks like fun. You guys were able to straighten out a lot of those turns with the light traffic.
