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 leathers. Follow me on Twitter @ch3a4do

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. Rocket Recommends: Total Control Motorcycle Rider Trainer by Lee Parks http://amzn.to/1gl6PTQ





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.





Yamaha YZF-R1 Onboard - Chasing Crossplane Yamaha R1 & Honda CBR929RR on Tail of The Dragon
Yamaha YZF R1 trying to keep up with two sport bikes on twisty road. Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap, with 318 curves in 11 miles, is America's number one motorcycle and sports car road. After uploading the first dragon tail video with three different gopro camera angles, I've received many requests to upload this video, which is only helmet cam view from Yamaha R1 in the back.

Some of the Dragon's sharpest curves have names like Copperhead Corner, Hog Pen Bend, Wheelie Hell, Shade Tree Corner, Mud Corner, Sunset Corner, Gravity Cavity, Beginner's End, and Brake or Bust Bend. The road earned its name from its curves being said to resemble a dragon's tail. The stretch bears the street name "Tapoco Road" in North Carolina and "Calderwood Highway" in Tennessee and is signed entirely by U.S. 129. State Route 115 is included on maps, and is the name used by Tennessee Department of Transportation for highway contracts. Since part of the road is also the southwestern border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, there is no development along the 11-mile stretch, resulting in no danger of vehicles pulling out in front of those in the right of way. It mostly travels through forested area and there are a few scenic overlooks and pull-off points along the route. The speed limit on the Dragon was 55 mph (89 km/h) prior to 1992; it was reduced to 30 mph (48 km/h) in 2005. SUBSCRIBE TO STAY UPDATED WITH NEW VIDEOS!!

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).





Never under estimate a Goldwing! Me and Mary riding "Deals Gap" and so ready to do it again!!!

Complete Tail of the Dragon Deal's Gap WET on a Kawasaki Ninja 650R
Navigated the Tail of the Dragon in Tennessee and North Carolina Tuesday afternoon, May 5th on wet road. A group of 17 of us nose to tail went through it. This is part 1 of 3 of the complete dragon. I had to break them up into 3 segments because YouTube has a 10 minute limit per clip. All completed the Dragon unscathed and with great excitement. For the record, I never once went over the yellow line. It appears that way occasionally on the video due to the camera position while leaning into the curves, but the yellow was not crossed.





Harley Biker Wrecks as Slow Mini-Van Occupants Laugh
If you're smart enough to read... I'm not the one who shot this video... someone sent it to me. So enough of the bitching emails. Slow mini-van tourists driving on the Tail of the Dragon/Deal's Gap watch as Harley-Davidson riders pass them only to run off the road. Mini-van should have pulled over and let faster vehicles past. Too busy playing with their damn video camera....
