The DRAGON 318 Curves in 11 Miles...

In the midst of a road trip, our stop today is going to be the 'Dragon' located in Deals Gap, North Carolina. Sounds scary...

Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap claims to be America's number one motorcycle road with 318 curves in 11 miles.  Yikes!

 As a BackSeat Rider, I must say I am a tad nervous. Not having control has always been an issue for me, whether I am in a four-wheel vehicle or on the back of the bike. Admittedly, I tend to do a lot of driving from the passenger side and my imaginary brake gets a lot of workout. 

So, with a bit of trepidation, I am putting my trust, and life, in the old man's hands and hope to join the ranks of 'Dragon Slayer'. Although, not sure if BackSeat Riders can call themselves one? Maybe the club is only meant for those that actually drive the road , but if I make it through, without jumping off the bike and walking my way down, I will make myself an honorary member.

A few pics from the last boy's trip...piece of cake, eh?

Friends on the Dragon

My nephews on their crotch rockets! Speed demons :-)

Okay Dragon...ready or not, here I come! Be nice to me....

  1. The Dragon is a fun road. Most of the roads in that area of NC and Tenn. are fun. There are a lot of curvy roads. One can enjoy the ride to and from the Dragon.
