Dodge Viper on the Tail of the Dragon US129 Deals Gap.flv

This was our first pass thought the "Tail of the Dragon", US129, Deal's Gap, My wife was trying to hand hold the camera and it did work very well and made her sick, so that is the only video we shot. It may make you sick watching it. We were driving a 2000 Dodge Viper. I thought it would be best to drive it in first gear but it was hard to keep the rear tires from breaking loose exiting the turns so I ended up driving it in second and it was much easier to control the loose on exit problem. The Viper is stock and quiet about the only time you hear it is when the rear tire breaks loose. It has a brand new set of BF Goodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2. 13.5 inches wide in the rear 10.5 inches wide in front. It had rain earlier in the day but was dry when we drove it. We weren't trying to set any records, just having a good time. I had a blast.

Street Killers: Insane Deals Gap Crash
Guy takes a nasty crash off the side of a mountain on his F4i. All filmed with GoPro cameras at Deal's Gap ( The Tail of The Dragon). You can see the rut he hits which locks his front tire and causes his rear to slide out, he then somehow saves the bike from going over with him. I've opened all comments to be posted without approval just so I don't have to read the non-sense anymore. Check out all our other videos.

Some of the Dragon's sharpest curves have names like Copperhead Corner, Hog Pen Bend, Wheelie Hell, Shade Tree Corner, Mud Corner, Sunset Corner, Gravity Cavity, Beginner's End, and Brake or Bust Bend. The road earned its name from its curves being said to resemble a dragon's tail. The stretch bears the street name "Tapoco Road" in North Carolina and "Calderwood Highway" in Tennessee and is signed entirely by U.S. 129. State Route 115 is included on maps, and is the name used by Tennessee Department of Transportation for highway contracts. Since part of the road is also the southwestern border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, there is no development along the 11-mile stretch, resulting in no danger of vehicles pulling out in front of those in the right of way. It mostly travels through forested area and there are a few scenic overlooks and pull-off points along the route. The speed limit on the Dragon was 55 mph (89 km/h) prior to 1992; it was reduced to 30 mph (48 km/h) in 2005. SUBSCRIBE TO STAY UPDATED WITH NEW VIDEOS!!

No one was injured and everyone rode away.

You Go Where You Look
On the "Tail of the Dragon", on October 16, 2012, a bike crossed the center line and crashed into an oncoming car. Both vehicles were totaled, but both men are reported as "okay." I offer this video as an illustration of the fact that, on a bike, you go where you look. ANYONE can make a mistake. The toll when one is made involving a bike is usually higher than anyone wants to pay.

132365 / 2004 Dodge Viper: Mamba Edition
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6rng7c3 Showing just 7724 original miles, Mamba #182 is a rare, virtually new car that has been driven about 1100 miles a year. The white paint is unique to the Mamba, and while it isn't as flashy as red, the unique look of an all-white Viper has its own appeal—kind of like the white Bengal tigers. Somehow it's much cooler than what you usually see on the road. The finish is, of course, virtually unblemished thanks to expert care since it was new and there's not much chance this one has ever seen the rain. The convertible top is easy to use, folding neatly behind the seats and stowing under a hard boot that creates a seamless appearance. And I don't care who you are, when you see this car roaring down the street, you know you're in the presence of something special. Even more outrageous than the swoopy bodywork is the 8.3 liter V10 under the hood, which cranks out 505 horsepower and 525 pounds of torque, making the Viper the undisputed king of the hill in 2004. Modified with only a K&N air filter, this V10 cranks to life easily and runs like it should. Notoriously over-engineered, it's virtually impossible to hurt a Viper engine, and guys have put insane levels of Boost through engines with stock bottom-ends and report no difficulties, so you know they're built for combat. They're also built for show, with red valve covers and brushed aluminum Viper graphics, a gorgeous and exotic-looking intake manifold, and a massive air intake. The only transmission you could get in the Viper is a 6-speed manual, and in first or second gear, the big V10 makes so much torque that even half throttle will turn the big 19-inch tires to smoke. In back, a limited slip differential tries to plant the power, but with this much torque on tap, it's a losing battle. The suspension is, of course, fully independent at all four corners, with sophisticated double wishbones that help the Viper generate some truly astounding skidpad numbers. Brakes are massive discs all around, and the second generation Vipers now sport full ABS that makes the most of the car's impressive grip. Helping to create those insanely high limits are beautiful chrome forged alloy wheels, 18s up front and 19s in back wearing Michelin Pilot radials. The big difference in the Mamba edition, aside from the dazzling white paint, is the two-tone black and red interior. The seats are a combination of leather and suede, surely designed to keep you in place during the most spirited driving, and are probably even suitable for track duty. The steering wheel is wrapped in black and red leather, and features a racy airbag cover with the Viper logo in red. You'll also find the Mamba serial number plaque and an emergency brake handle wrapped in more red leather. White-faced gauges keep an eye on the engine, and the 220 MPH shown on the speedometer is perhaps optimistic, but surely not by much. Overhead, the black convertible top fits snugly and seals up tightly, but there's really nothing like the open-air experience in a Viper. The Mamba Edition Viper is unique primarily in its paint and interior, but do you really need to improve a car with 505 horsepower? If you haven't driven a Viper, prepare for a mind-altering experience, because this car accelerates like those experimental rocket sleds they used to strap Air Force pilots to in the '40s. Yet despite its brute power, the car is easy to drive, comfortable, and relatively docile if you can manage to keep your foot out of it. The distinctive Mamba Edition includes all that is great about the Viper, and takes it to the next level with its cool color combination and limited production status. Nobody can say what cars will be collectable in the future, but safe bets are limited production models like this one. Call today!

Deals Gap "Tail of the Dragon" on a Gold Wing
This is a video of us riding our Gold Wings through the entire length of the Tail of the Dragon (US 129, Deal's Gap), plus a few miles before "the overlook". Our lines are not great to say the least, but part of the reason for taking toe video was to learn from it. We don't pretend to have talent just because we have experience (which is a common and dangerous assumption).
