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.
300zx TT Dragon run 05.20.2011
This was my first time on the Tail of the Dragon. I didn't really feel
comfortable running the car too fast as this was a virgin run, and my car
sits a bit too low / scrapes in the hard turns. Zdayz 2011.

Motard vs CBR1000 Deal's Gap
These three riders were our motel neighbors from deal's gap. The man on the
CBR (kindly recording for us) is a coach for team promotion out of Eastern
They recorded a fun run up the gap for us so that we could capture some
motard action. Amazin stuff.
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.
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
Motorcycle Crash at Deals Gap
Local KTM Rider passes us on a blind corner just to have a Stupid Harley
rider waiting for him in the middle of the road.
The Harley guy lost his gloves and was trying to pick em up, but the KTM
guy (was not with us) passed up because we were going little bit too slow
for his pace and came up on the HD guy. No one was injured and everyone
Chasing The Dragon HillClimb Race - SCCA - 2011
Here's a few clips from the SCCA Chasing The Dragon (ie Tail of The Dragon)
Hill Climb. For this particular course, spectators were not allowed
on-course so we just hung out around the start gate.
Sorry the vid is a little shakey. It was shot with my iPhone 4.
Pics from the event can be seen here:

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.
Tail of the Dragon - Crazy drivers
Here is a little video showing how intense the dragon is, this is just
capturing a few people within a little time of having my camcorder out. So
many crazy drivers (me being one of them I wont lie, but I didnt cross the
lines like some of these people).
This was durign Miatas at the gap, 2011.

Sanchez 2005 "Eleanor"
This is the first video I made of my 2005 Eleanor. She has the full Eleanor
bodykit from Cervini's that was designed to look like the Eleanor from the
movie "Gone in 60 Seconds". I went a little further by using the real
Eleanor's '67 Shelby GT500 badges, hood pins & even the same exact paint.
The movie car wasn't a GT so of course I used the current GT500 trunk badge
& lettering. If you've seen the movie, you'll recognize the song ;)
