US 129 The Dragon

My wife and I escaped and went down there last September, we both had a blast. What an amazing place that whole area is.

We were down there last year in Sept also. I can't wait to go back this year. It's always nice to ride areas you've never been.

Nice video! I was there in sept. also, and yes what a great area! Liked the camera angle too. Like I tell my grandkids-good job keeping it between the lines. Shined up the bottoms of the boards too.

Agreed. There isn't a bad road anywhere in that area. I've been down there five times now since '07 and plan to go back this season.

I live about 10 miles west of the Dragon and still enjoy the hell out of it.

But just about all the roads around here and NC and down into the Blue Ridge of GA are a blast to ride.

Ohio, I'm not on that forum but I did run into them 3 years ago at Maggie Valley and had a good time.
