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

Dragons Tail - Harley Crash 8/20/2012
Webby is trailing me back up the Dragon Tail from the end at the lake (back to Deals Gap), and along the way we catch up to slower traffic in some cruisers. I follow a couple Harley cruisers for a bit and the guy in front of me decides to politely pull over to let me pass easy....however things go really wrong and the guilt sets in....UGH!
