The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''
Extract of the Dreamflesh article ''Path of The Sacred Clown''

These days, I would expect the rider to be wearing "dragon goggles" (ie. VR glasses) to help simulate the experience better. After all, this is just like a rollercoaster VR program plus the physical dimensions.

I like the wind-blowing-my-hair-back thing, but do they warm up the breeze and inject some sulfur after your mount expels a belly (lungs? fire-pit?) load of flame?

I am dipping the VR goggles idea majorly.    Cheers! - gNorrie

Handlebars on a dragon?  Everyone knows you use reins ....

Not so: Chinese dragons have handlebars.

My hands acquire a shaking
The shaking becomes a warning
