This is not a blind curve at Killboy hairpin. If you don't know your bike's max lean angle and max turn rate in a parking lot, you're not ready for Deals Gap.

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

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.
