WARNING ----

http://m.knoxnews.com/news/2013/sep/...r-enforcement/

State troopers on motorcycles will saturate U.S. Highway 129, especially the section called “The Dragon” in the upcoming weekend because of two events expected to bring a deluge of riders to the area.

Motorcycle riding troopers from Tennessee Highway Patrols districts in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Cookeville and Fall Branch will converge on the federal highway during Sept. 13-15, according to the state Department of Safety and Homeland Security.

A $71,116.79 grant from the Governor’s Highway Safety Office, which covers a period from Oct. 1, 2012, to Sept. 30, 2013, will pay overtime funds to the motorcycle officers

The decision to saturate “The Dragon” with motorcycle officers was prompted by two events this weekend expected to bring heavy motorcycle traffic to the challenging road. In Maggie Valley, N.C., the “Thunder in the Smokies” event will be under way and in Pigeon Forge the “Fall Rod Run” will be held.

The Dragon is an 11-mile section of U.S. Highway 129 that attracts motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world because of its 318 curves. According to the state, one motorcyclist has died so far this year on U.S. Highway 129.

Officials said the state troopers will especially be alert for aggressive and reckless driving, speeding, impaired driving and seat belt use for four-wheel vehicles. Authorities expect to have a sobriety checkpoint established on U.S. Highway 129 on Saturday.

More details as they develop online and in Wednesday’s News Sentinel.

When I stopped here on the way to the dump my buddy wanted to try out the bike and a guy came up and said that the tires on the trailer won't last and I said you are right, they have only been on there for seven years.
Actually, both the bike and the trailer combo.
Thats a thoughtful warning about the tires, but a better come back!

I've recently determined that overalls are the best riding gear ever. I just need to figure out how to sew armor into them. Apparently, this guy agrees.

Something looks funny here. Maybe it is the camera angle, but it looks like she is just about to turn straight into the other lane for no reason.

One day, centuries from now, archaeologists will excavate that corner and determine that a HD factory once stood there based on all the parts buried in the dirt.
