@gents the vmax does great here it really does. I liked the dragon on it a lot with that 2nd gear power to come out the turns like the vmax has. I'm personally not as comfortable on the higher speed 70mph sweepers that some of these guys do on cherohala on a bike this big without new tires.

The vmax really didnt eat tires on me either down there like some other guys. one guy on a ducati pulled in and his tires were just chewed UP and wearing in the shape of a W. and he was like man i just dont get it and his buddies was all gathered around. He was riding 2 up and i told him i was like bro in my experience that means too low tire pressure. He checked it and it was like 28psi. I told him i run 40

I've got a ton of really good videos of my 2015 on the Dragon, it handles those curves quite well for such a big bike!

No video.....only photos but good memories. I was just passing through so only ran up and down once .......one of those times with the old GoPro where I thought it was on but it was off. :mad:
