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.

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 ;)
-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.
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
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.

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
They recorded a fun run up the gap for us so that we could capture some
motard action. Amazin stuff.
My crash at the gap
I'm the guy in the black/white suit. My friend is following behind me
filming. The part that gets played over and over...that's the part where
my friend bounces his bike of my back when I crash. lol
Deals Gap Lowside
Due to lowered rearsets from the night before I ended up dragging a peg
well before the second apex of the turn. Thus kicking out my rear tire.
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.
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
