I've seen that video before. LOL It always pisses me off that somehow people act like the driver was at fault for the biker riding like an ass. The funny part is not only the biker doing that but the car passengers thinking they where going to get beat on.

I think the comment, "they're gonna beat our asses" is funny as hell.... http://images.ibsrv.net/ibsrv/res/src:forums.corvetteforum.com/get/images/smilies/smilielol5.gifhttp://images.ibsrv.net/ibsrv/res/src:forums.corvetteforum.com/get/images/smilies/smilielol5.gif

Hey, I love the dragon but, unless you're riding during the week(and even then)
it's a very dangerous place to ride. People who come from our neck of the woods, where straight roads are the norm get down there and ride way over their head, that and cagers crossing the double yellow make it an accident waiting to happen.
Another option is the Snake in Boone NC, great road, maybe even better then the dragon. West (byGod) Virgina is loaded with awesome roads as well.

i agree and whenever we go down there we don't ride on the weekends and especially not holiday weekends.. not to mention Tenessee Highway Patrol has a new grant (last year or 2 years ago) for several hundred thousand dollars to "patrol" the dragon especially on weekends.. so if you are headed down leave on a sunday ride all week and leave no later than Friday - weekends are a mess.. and yes it is VERY dangerous to ride - no run off and no room for error.. not a place for a new or unskilled rider for sure.. but lots of good roads around there - Devil's Triangle, Blood Mountain, Cherhola Skyway, etc. to keep you busy 10+ hours a day for 7 days (even weekends just not the dragon)..
