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

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 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.
