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.

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.

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.





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 him. Wear Your Gear Folks!!! This happened in the beginning of the year 2011 not sure on the exact date.

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).
