Gryphon Mount

Just did the instant lv70, went to Northrend, bought the Artisan riding and bought the Gryphon. I understand I need to buy the cold weather flying to fly it but why am I not able to ride it like a regular mount? Buying the Artisan riding should increase my mount speed but hasn't. And I should have been able to ride the Gryphon as a regular mount. Anyone know what's going on?

You cannot use a flying mount in Northrend- even as a ground mount- without cold weather flying. Artisan riding does not increase mount speed for most mounts i.e. a 150% flying mount will usually not upgrade to a 280% mount. Instead, you need to purchase a 280% mount such as a swift gryphon.
