    Way to go...was a great experience for me as well...a little white knuckled at the time. Was my 2nd year as a rider. Now ya gotta do Highway 550 between Durango, Colo. up to Ridgeway on the " Million Dollar " highway. Here however theres nothing to stop ya if you go off the road...sept the bottom...lol...Twisties at 11,000 feet...what a rush!:D

    Hey Steve! Did the Dragon in June and it was pretty intense for a relative newbie like me. Weekdays are certainly the way to go - I've heard the weekends are crazy!

    Four Dogs - not sure I'm ready for your Million Dollar Highway. Sounds fantastic but I think I'd have to wear a diaper, if you catch my drift!

    Please let us know when you're coming over to ride the Dragon. We can have an HDTalking reunion at Deals Gap! Then we could all talk without having to use our fingers!

    We got some great rides across Dartmoor,and the A 303 from Exeter to London.Theres a nice stretch of windy around Wooky Hole and Cheddar gorge too!We got the old road from Plymouth to Paignton.Some REALY tite bends,and lots of dented hedgerows where some goons on rice rockets have overcooked thier turns.

    Glad you'll had a great safe ride.
    any ride here in the mountains is a good ride.
