that may be what i heard them say, but i could have sworn they said it was closed to cars. My mistake would keep a lot of us so called hooligans off the ,main streets no cars to dodge and all that .If you guys evers come west a few hours give me a shout

Maybe you're talking about hwy 129. It's in tennessee. Search for "the Dragon" or check tailofthedragon.com for info. 318 turns in 11 miles...it's a fun road, but getting more and more popular..which means a lot busier than it used to be. Of course the motorcyclists would like to see it open to bikes only, but that's not going to happen. There's tons of cars that go there, and it's a state hwy which is the main mode of transportation from NC to TN in that area.

I'm not but about 45 mins from there, so if you wanna go ride sometime, give me a shout.

Although it may seem that there's lots of tractor trailers, it's really not the case. ...it's just that EVERY ONE that tries to go through winds up causing trouble since the curves are just too tight for them. They either jam traffic or run off the road every time.

next year, i must ride the dragon, at least once, as well as several other roads, i have heard about. I want to visit the dragon, but everybody knows about it and its getting busy. are there any other really great rides you guys have come across, that arent wquite so public? I live in ohio, the flat of it all, so good rides around here are very limited. post up what your favorite hometown ride is.
