I think I seen my new Dragon 7 on the assembly line! It had a tag on it that said "From Santa for Ditchbanger" [:D]

So it's not mythical. . . . they REALLY are making those things.
[:D]

On a serious note. My dealer says it ships next week.

Being a test driver isn't all it's cracked up to be. They are required to ride unless the temperature is -20F or colder. They have to keep records and ride according to how the engineers tell them to. Sometimes there are slow speed tests where you cannot exceed 20 MPH for a hundred miles, stuff like that. It can get boring, cold, and many people do not last long as test drivers. Granted, some of the riding can be a blast...but there is much more to doing it than just riding the sled like you would for fun.

You can also see them testing on the highway south of Roseau in the summers, 90 degrees and in full leathers.

All sleds, atv's and rangers are built in that same building.

With the pitiful amount of snow we've got so far this year it might be the closest thing we'll get to snowmobiling this year [V]
