Tail of Dragon in car GOPRO
This was from MIATAS AT THE GAP 2012! Great time from the overlook whole
way back with the Clubroadster meet crew. Infront of my (black NB) has
capability of 400+ horsepower off of a little 4
cylinder motor!!! Such a crazy car I even got to drive it the owner was
such a great guy. Got stuck behind 2 slow moving cars which slowed down the
pace as you can see in this video, but it will atleast give you a good
sense of feel of what normal driving speed looks like on the gopro since
even the fast pace stuff looks slow on video.
Car is a stock engine 1.6l with bolt ons, top speed pro-1 Exhaust and intake. Coilovers, racing beat
tubular sway bar, v8 roadster frame rails, isc tophats, roll bar
(stiffening), 15x8 wheels and crappy tires upfront with kumho xs in rear.
Great year, great people, great driving. Cant wait for next year!!!
Miatas at the Gap 2011
Here is footage I put together from my trip to MATG, miatas at the gap. It
was my first time at tail of the dragon and it was by far the most fun I
have ever had!! I will for sure be there next year!
Bad Car crash!
Here is a NB Miata crashing on rt 28 right by tail of the dragons famous rt
129. This NB was at the Miatas at the gap event and was beautiful, sadly
its now totaled:[
I took footage shortly after I came down the hill and saw it, I am pretty
sure everyone was okay and things got cleaned up.

ClubRoadster.com Miatas at the Gap meet!
During Miatas at the Gap clubroadster.com had a little meet to get to know
everyone, was lots of fun! Here is a video of the people who attended. Was
awesome to get to know everyone.
If you want me to put a annotation of your forum name on the video when I
show your car that would be cool!
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.
Extreme Close Call on "The Tail of the Dragon"
Rocket Recommends: Total Control Motorcycle Rider Trainer by Lee Parks
I was riding on US129, also known as The "Tail of the Dragon" and this ass
hat on a goldwing thinks he is going to pass a pick up truck and another
bike. Not only did he not make the pass, he nearly took me out in the
process. If you ride US129 be prepared for situations like these. Ass hats
on big touring bikes, cruisers, and sportbikes alike attempt stupid passes
like this. Keep your stuff wired tight!
CRASH!!! Tail of the Dragon/Deals Gap (FULL RUN)
After traveling nearly 600 miles I arrived at the world famous Tail of the
Dragon. Before setting off down the twists and turns that lay before me I
was informed of SEVERAL POLICE CARS that were spotted heading down the
road. Needless to say after 11 hours of riding the last thing I wanted to
do was get a ticket or worse yet crash and have a nearly 600 mile walk back
to Jacksonville, FL. So I set out to enjoy this wonderful road yet again
with that in mind.
Just cruising the Gap and enjoying every turn along the way. There was a
biker down about 3/4 through the run, when I saw him next they were placing
him on a gurney and putting him in an ambulance. Hope he recovers fully!
Never like to see a fellow rider go down. Thankfully he did have on full

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 - Semi Truck Meets 11 Miles of Curves
The one thing that I didn't want to encounter on my trip to the Dragon was
a semi-truck. Well, my wish didn't come true. Lucky for me it was going in
the same direction I was.

Rob gets PWNED by chick biker on Tail of the Dragon
I come up on a slow car, see a race bike in my mirror, do the courteous
thing and wave it by. Well it turns out to be a girl and I'm like "HELLLLL
NO" and ride my ass off trying to keep up. She slowly leaves me behind and
there's nothing I can do to stop her. She pulls over after we passed the
cop because it's her husband that he's got pulled over.
