Somehow, this car made it through these past four days and got me home. What a satisfying weekend. Just spending time at the home court. Can't decide on which photo I like better of the cars. Some WS members have made the pilgrimage to the promised land and are putting work in.

Jeez, it seemed that every time I'd check out a reply to one of my post, I'd always get that face that looked like you were totally disappointed in the original question. And it aggrivated the piss out of me. Dict Tape-The universial fix-it all. That's just disturbing. This could be a good idea for next years Deal's gap run! SMF 2. Page created in 0.

The unmistakable pops and raps of a Mazda rotary interrupt the whip-poor-will's haunting call.
If you are, then you may have already heard about the motorcycle and sports car enthusiast Mecca known as The Tail of the Dragon , Deals Gap or just "The Dragon". This short 11 mile stretch of road on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina contains twisting turns. A friend of mine from college and I took a trip up from North Florida to see if we could, as the veterans would say, "Slay the Dragon" or crash and add bike parts to the "Tree of Shame". Before we left, I helped my friend install some motorcycle frame sliders on his Honda F4i to save the plastics just in case they were any mishaps while riding at Deals Gap. Calderwood Dam Great Smoky Mountains Deal's Gap I didn't witness many other bikers riding the Dragon during our visit but while researching the web I saw pictures and video clips of a huge variety of motorcycle enthusiast groups including sportbike riders, Harleys, metric cruisers, motard dirt bikes, and even Honda Goldwings.

We were Tail of the Dragon virgins. I really wanted to take the vintage bikes on the road, get them photographed with me on them, which never seems to happen. I take pictures of my friends on them but no one seems to take my picture on them. The road is decent, a little overkill when I first got on it. It does not have the long high speed sweepers that we are used in this area Rt. I think my max speed was 79mph on a short straight, then down shift, small amount of front brake and an off the bike lean to make the turn. On the second day I was hooked.

For those of us who believe that Corvettes are meant to be driven, there's little on the East Coast to compare with the scenery and challenge of the two-lane roads that snake through the Tri-State area of Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina in places like the Ocoee River, Blood Mountain, and Wolf Pen Gap, with names like the River Road and Moonshiner's Among the roads--some legendary, some only known to locals--two stand above the crowd, and for entirely different reasons: Originally conceived as a thoroughfare that would connect then-isolated parts of East Tennessee and Western North Carolina, the Skyway began in with a group of locals who, protesting that the route between the two areas was passable only by wagon train, took a group of 67 wagons and more than men on horseback over the rugged, high country between Tellico Plains, Tennessee, and Murphy, North Carolina. That sort of dedication draws attention, and in this case it was rewarded by an appropriation from the Federal Highway Administration in Construction began five years later, and after overcoming the customary environmental concerns, the Skyway was formally dedicated in , a monument to the tenacity of the men who first envisioned it. Passing through the Cherokee and Nantahala national forests Chero-hala, get it? Beautiful anytime of the year, it's probably at its best during the fall.

Last week I described our journey to the Tail and setting up camp you can read about that here , today is the day that I ride the infamous Tail of the Dragon, ignorance is bliss. Had I known that it was such a challenging ride for a novice, I may not have done it. I put my big girl panties on and took the plunge. May 23, McGyver was of course up before me, got his shower and was getting coffee ready. The Tail was unbelievable — no kidding curves in 11 miles — speed limit 30 mph- strictly enforced. I was scared but I made it through, this was a big challenge for me and I made it! After a little map checking we decided to head towards North Carolina and cut across the Cherohola Sky way, little did we know that this route would take almost 3 hours and more lives have been lost on the Skyway then the Dragon. Once again, ignorance is bliss and so we took off. This has to be some the most beautiful countryside in the U.

Photos from Deals Gap and the Tail of the dragon last week. Vehicle s: Jun 30, Location: Louisville, KY Posts: Wife and I made a trip down to the smokies last week. So naturally all five days were spent sleeping in and on the dragon, which by the end of the trip it had been agreed it was better time spent Lost track of how many runs we made but the trip computer had us at miles from when we arrived till our departure. Met a lot of very cool people from all over the place, got to hang with Darryl Killboy. Did my best to follow his Cosworth FRS, which lasted a total of 12 seconds before he disappeared somewhere across the NC line Overall it was an awesome week. Spent some much needed time getting acquainted with the car and can confidently say it is officially "broken in". Thoroughly impressed with how composed the car was. Had the opportunity to really push the car through it's paces with in reasonable limits for a public road of course.
