    Yeah, not many places on the dragon where you can do 150+.

    This looks like me riding in Florida. I kept forwarding the video to see when they were going to get to the curves. Lol

    True but then again it would be a big challenge to push 150 on the tail

    Well, first- great video-
    By 150+, I am guessing Kilometers not Miles.
    Lots of stable curves some changes in elevation, I would liken that more to the Skyway than the Dragon.
    Not much traffic, that is nice to see!

    Nice run! Who was the dude who passed you and what was he riding? He was laying down a heck of a run.

    Willie, that is a great video. I still remember the first time that I met you at the CRoT- your antenna mod caught my attention because I was looking for a way to locate mine for better signal- that was a few years ago!

    Yeah when I saw that 2010 I couldn't believe it had been 6 years! Is it just me or do we go faster once we're over the hill? :beerchug:

    The guy filming was my mate on a GSXR750 .. I was on my TL1000R at the front.

    Yea .. It was late evening and the speed limits don't count then .... And I wasn't knocking the Dragon - would love to do it one day - But I like a proper mix n match with a good biking road... A ups and downs, fast straights and different radius bends.
