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.

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.





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).





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 PA. They recorded a fun run up the gap for us so that we could capture some motard action. Amazin stuff. Thanks guys.





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.
