This dragon run below was wet, but at least it wasnt raining like the rest of my runs. I wanted to get a tire cam shot but that angle never works when the road debris mists up the GoPro lens.

You dont have to watch the whole thing, it gets rather repetitive once you start to recognize the pattern...but this is only about 2/3 the twisty part. I stopped to grab some photos so the start is from the overlook on the return route, and the camera died before the end.

Unlike the drive to the Kanc, all the roads in and around this area are equally as epic. You basically can make a several hour loop and burn up a tank of fuel with a smile ear to ear the whole time. And most of the roads are at least 1,000 ft above sea level and in some cases over 5,000 ft. Its a lot of work for a little N/A motor which is why you hear me ringing out 2nd gear between 5,000-8,000 rpm before shifting to 3rd.

That's kinda the secret to the Dragon. It's the famous one, for some reason, but it isn't even the best road in its vicinity :D

I'd love to go but probably can't swing it. Mary wants to go to Ireland this fall.

I thought the CX-5 wouldn't be too bad on that road, was it really a fail?

Mia is still in storage and probably not coming out till I race in May.
Is she out yet?

Second week at the Mazda dealership. Great environment, not as busy as Toyota. We do 15-20 cars here, Toyota we did 90-120. Nice being around the brand!
