Default Rally to the valley. (tail of the dragon)

http://www.tailofthedragon.com/

The tail of the dragon. Its fun, many of you know. But why havent we gone? Why havent we got off our asses and headed down to this great road? Who knows? Maybe we are lazy, poor, to young to leave home for a weekend, or just havent got a chance to hit the highway and feel alive again. Well this is it. This is your chance. Im always cracking jokes, making fun, acting a ass. People say I never do anything for the local sites. This is it, this is what Im going to do. Im going to set up a rally. For those that wish to ride this great dragon, all you have to do is show up. You are all invited.

This stretch of US Highway 129 running through Deal's Gap, Tennessee, AKA...The Tail of the Dragon is made up of 318 turns in 11 miles. You'll be down shifting and hard on the brakes every turn.

I plan to drive up to the tail of the dragon this September. The 1st to the 4th. Its laber day weekend. I would very much like to have some of my friends come with me. Wether we camp or pitch in for a cabin or just get rooms of our own, it doesnt matter. Im down for whatever. I know for sure that Im going come hell or high water. I would love for each and everyone of you to come with me. It will be a trip you will never forget.


Keith



If anyone has anything to add please post. If you would like to ask me anything feel free to PM me or Email me at [email protected]

I have posted this on all the local fourms to Nola and BatonRouge. Pretty much anyone is welcome to come. Just thought I would post up and see if some of the my dseries brotheren would like to ride the dragon with me. I will be back to post more info later on.

go on a Tuesday or Wednesday, never EVER on a weekend.......

too much traffic, too many cops.

BTW, you'll learn brake management REALLY quickly.

Also you won't be downshifting much running at 7/10th you'll be stuck in 2nd gear most of the time.

Also PRAY a 18 wheeler doesn't come the other way.........your gonna LOSE!

Really not that bad? took a hour to go 13 miles......went on a "off" day and it was less than half that.

From Gatlinburg, Sugarlands visitor center to Cades Cove, then Townsend. Hop on the Foothills parkway to US129. from the dragon head east to Cherokee, then back across Newfound gap road.

Or From Pigeon Forge take the back way to Townsend, run up and back on the dragon, come back to PF and play on the gokarts

BTW police have been cracking down on speeders on the road between PF and Gatlinburg.
