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.

Yamaha YZF-R1 Onboard - Chasing Crossplane Yamaha R1 & Honda CBR929RR on Tail of The Dragon
Yamaha YZF R1 trying to keep up with two sport bikes on twisty road. Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap, with 318 curves in 11 miles, is America's number one motorcycle and sports car road. After uploading the first dragon tail video with three different gopro camera angles, I've received many requests to upload this video, which is only helmet cam view from Yamaha R1 in the back.

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!!

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.

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 assumption).

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.

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.

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 rode away.
