My first run on the dragon...2 up!

This short video is a portion of my first attempt at running this stretch of infamous pavement. With 318 turns in 11 miles this asphalt will humble the most experienced rider. The Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap, located in Tennessee is one of the most sought after destinations for motorcycle enthusiasts. I made this run on a generation 2 Hayabusa super bike while with my wife 2 up. Thank you for viewing.

That looks awesome. Plan on a riding trip next year sometime. This looks like a possibility.
Thanks for the Vid.


BTW: What type of cam were you using?

There's room for all of gods creatures......Right next to the mashed potatoes.

There is lots of better riding in that area, less traffic and higher speed limits, the Cherahola skyway for 1 which is real close to the gap and many other nice roads with some real nice views. But you have to ride the dragon once just to say you did.
