Btw, awesome pix. Love to lean and wack the gas right here!

Not the Dragon, we sat there 5+ minutes, and only saw 1 or 2 cars. What does not show up well is the elevation change, it is a real world cork screw.

TC and RD,
Thanks for the birthday wishes. I'll try and make the CRAP.
My Dad always said that getting old was hell but it beat the alternative.
Keep the Dragon photos coming. Riding the three turns in 300 miles here in FL sucks but at least the weather is nice.

A ride out to the ranch with a diverse group.

If that's who I think it is, I'd pay money to watch you try to stay within a mile of him on that road...
