Dragon's Tail

Found out last night that my fiance's family is taking a trip up to Gatlinburg this summer, and by then she will be my wife so naturally ill be going. I also just looked up how far that is to Deals gap and its like an hour away.

Im definitely trailering the BigCat up to that bitch, but ill prolly take it back down to SWB just to make the curves more fun! As the date gets closer ill post back up and see abt getting a group together.

I have been there many times. It has become very popular with so many motorcycles the police cannot stop all the speeders. There are always bikes on the side of the road that have wrecked and you can always hear the ambulances and police sirens. It's crazy. Be very careful, people have died. The road is sandy in spots and the curves are unpredictable..

First time i went there i about shit myself. Its a fun road, but the corners are sneaky. If youre not careful itll bite you. Cops are really bad as well. Just be careful. Some idiots treat it as their own personal race track. And some idiots with trailers go 5 mph through it. Have fun and be safe. And check out the tree of shame before you make your first pass to keep you humble

will i know when its finally done?
this whole life's a hallucination.

Been there many times. Rule #1 Stay in your own lane!

The ideal bike for that road is a 400 - 650 supermotard with race compound tires on it. Get as close to that as you can. Flat-spotted tires are a no-no. Stretched and lowered bike is a no-no, you need the cornering clearance and you need the bike to turn. Crap suspension is a no-no; you need the bike to turn. Stunt cages that kill cornering clearance are another no-no; know of someone who found that out the hard way. It is a TIGHT road.

If you are going there in the summer, try to go during off hours and/or in the middle of the week. Weekends and the days on either side are a frustrating slow motion parade.

Fortunately, there are many other roads in the area that see less traffic and fewer cops and are the equal or better. Want to find them ... just turn off the main roads.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!
