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
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.

Ban 18-Wheelers On The Dragon at Deals Gap, NC.
U.S. 129 a.k.a. "The Dragon" is a road connecting Tennessee and North
Carolina. A favorite of motorcylists & sports car drivers, it has 318
hairpin turns & switchbacks in 11 miles, making it one of the most
challenging roads to ride in North America, let alone the world.
Thousands of motorcyclists & sports car owners flock here each summer to
conquer the dragon, and pump millions of dollars into to local economies of

they cannot stay in their lanes, and all hell can break loose during
This video is footage I shot in 2006 at The Dragon, many of you have seen
my first video from this footage called "TRUCKS ON THE DRAGON" on YouTube.
I have re-edited this footage into a 60 second argument against allowing
18-wheelers on this road.
Enjoy, and let me know what you thought!
The tail of the dragon
one of my favourite songs...It's my own mix...we all now it's not a big
deal....but it's sounds pretty good..... I think ;)
-if you don't like slide shows, please still give it a go as the song is
the priority in this video.
-IT IS NOT THE GRANTURISMO 2 soundtrack, as that one has car sounds, while
this has bike sounds....the son is the same though.
If you don't like it, foxtrot, oscar.
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

mistake. The toll when one is made involving a bike is usually higher than
anyone wants to pay.
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
