I have run Mullholland at speed and I have run the Dragon on both a bike and in a couple of different cars [500E and 240Z mainly]. California kids will need training wheels if they come out for the Dragon.

As much as anything to get a feel of the Tennessee State Police. They have taken to using ToD as a revenue generator over the past couple of years.

It is why I go on weekdays, not weekends. It is less crowded, fewer cruisers and seldom choppers.

Those who pay 80,000 for a bike certainly will not mind forking over another 1,000.
