Deal's Gap

Just got back @ 4:30 pm today from a one night trip to the Dragon and Tellico area. Will post a report asap, gotta get all the pics together and in order.
We just made it over the Dragon before they shut it down, another 'intelligent' semi driver thought he could make it. Thought, being the key word. He lost the whole rig over a very steep embankment. You can see the picture on www.tailofthedragon.com right now. We were down at the store/motel when they put the cones across the road yesterday afternoon.
I am beat, wore out, and tired of my KLR seat...LOL, gonna lay down in 'my' nice comfy bed for the night. Back soon.

2008 DL650 VStrom Yellow and Black
Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

The only way to Really ride the Dragon is on a Sportbike.

The best part of this forum, is this neat lil gimmick called ignore. With it activated I can see the person left a reply, but I don't get all the blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada, static. nothing like having some peace and quiet from those we choose not to hear replies from.

Riding on a sport-bike? The fastest time through the gap has been on a super-moto bike.... ! Been there and kicked ass on a KTM 560SM! The KLR can run easily with a sport-bike in the curves, the only advantage a sport-bike has is in the straights. It's not such a matter of HP but suspension and rider ability.

Well said... I would love to see Kenny Roberts on a KLR 650 with the right tires ride deals gap. (When he was in his prime)
