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

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.

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).

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!!

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 rode away.





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.
