Riding on my Optima Dragon

See you later! I'll be taking first ride today on my recently purchased Optima Dragon. I'm just going to ride to the Bent store to purchase some accessories. I bought this USED, and took it out for some test rides yesterday, just around the neighborhood, stopping and making all the necessary adjustments. I'll post some pictures later.
