Tail of the Dragon

I returned from the Tennessee State HOG Rally on Saturday. Whenever I'm in the area I always ride the Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap, North Carolina.

Attached is a link to my YouTube video of the "Dragon" ride. In the video I'm following my wife. I'm riding my Road Glide, and she's riding her Street Glide.

I've still yet to be able to make that ride. I do want to work one in soon. We're talking about making a trip there either this year or next!

Musta missed you with all the Road Glides down there. Saturday, the Sheriff was busting crotch rockets at the scenic overlook.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

Very cool. Thanks for sharing. Dragon is on my bucket list, someday..That pass at the 9 minute mark wasn't cool though.

Awesome video. I wish my wife rode like that. Way to go. She's a keeper for sure.

Great video.. The rider in front of you was really handling those curves. What camera did you use to record the video?

We rode the dragon saturday... fron the Tennessee side down. Then thru Robinsonville, and jumped on the moonshiner through brison city, Cherokee, maggie valley, Ashville up to johnson city. Best motorcycling country there is. But we live close and get to ride that way often. Great video.

I rose the dragon on Saturday, too. Was going north into TN on my way home to NY. Wish I spent more time in that area. Pigeon Forge would be a nice ride. Blue Ridge parkway. I guess it depends on how far you'd like to range away from Asheville.
