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

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 ;) Two things: -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.





Tail of the Dragon - August 15th, 2011 - Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort to Overlook w/ Jerry
My ride from the Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort to the Overlook on the Tail of the Dragon. August 15th, 2011. My friend Jerry is in front of me on his Triumph Speed Triple, but it is difficult to see him most of the time due to the camera angle.





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.

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.

A beautiful spring day at the Tail of the Dragon - Deals Gap. Cloudless skies, super green background and a pair of Yamaha Star Warrior ripping it up. Listen to the rumble that could be heard for miles...





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).





Bitten by the Dragon
Motorcycle crash on the Tail of the Dragon. Got greedy with the throttle coming out of a turn and broke traction on the rear tire. Rider was fine and bike was slightly scratched.
