Yamaha YZF R1 trying to keep up with two sport bikes on twisty road. Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap, with 318 curves in 11 miles, is America's number one motorcycle and sports car road. After uploading the first dragon tail video with three different gopro camera angles, I've received many requests to upload this video, which is only helmet cam view from Yamaha R1 in the back.

Some of the Dragon's sharpest curves have names like Copperhead Corner, Hog Pen Bend, Wheelie Hell, Shade Tree Corner, Mud Corner, Sunset Corner, Gravity Cavity, Beginner's End, and Brake or Bust Bend. The road earned its name from its curves being said to resemble a dragon's tail. The stretch bears the street name "Tapoco Road" in North Carolina and "Calderwood Highway" in Tennessee and is signed entirely by U.S. 129. State Route 115 is included on maps, and is the name used by Tennessee Department of Transportation for highway contracts. Since part of the road is also the southwestern border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, there is no development along the 11-mile stretch, resulting in no danger of vehicles pulling out in front of those in the right of way. It mostly travels through forested area and there are a few scenic overlooks and pull-off points along the route. The speed limit on the Dragon was 55 mph (89 km/h) prior to 1992; it was reduced to 30 mph (48 km/h) in 2005. SUBSCRIBE TO STAY UPDATED WITH NEW VIDEOS!!

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.





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).

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 rode away.





Yamaha R6 dragon tail Route 129 at Deal's Gap
A short segment of the Dragon Tail in Tennessee (route 129 at Deal's gap) on my 2001 Yamaha R6. The video/sound quality are not very good, this was film with my old MoviePix camera before I bought the Gopro HD but I think the camera angle is nice. The camera was bolted to the side of the frame just in front of my right knee.

2007 Yamaha R1 abnormal acceleration from first through second gear This video was taken for trouble shooting purposes for the 07 R1 ECU glitch when the RPMs are held at 5500, and the throttle is cranked, the bike reacts very sluggishly until around 7600 RPMs when it finally wakes up!
