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 leathers.

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.

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.
Cherohala Skyway R6 Crash / Test my frame Slider
Riding Cherohala Skyway came up on a motorcycle crash, also had a chance to
test out my frame sliders. Stopped by to see the after math of a crash,
when I saw the bike I was shocked that the guy didn't have a scratch on
Wear Your Gear Folks!!!
This happened in the beginning of the year 2011 not sure on the exact date.
My crash at the gap
I'm the guy in the black/white suit. My friend is following behind me
filming. The part that gets played over and over...that's the part where
my friend bounces his bike of my back when I crash. lol

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.
