    Once again, proof that it is in fact bad luck to affix your dragon sticker at the store.

    So, he's about to be passed by a buffalo and then a 1600cc Alfa from the stone age? Impressive. I wonder if he just gave up and left it at Tabcat?

    You should know the people you are trying to insult. You are not fit to lick her riding boots.

    I'm in the early stages of planning a road trip out to the Knoxville area this summer.

    Entertained the idea of heading down to The Dragon.

    Then I revisited this thread and realized that I still have no interest in riding that stretch of road.

    The rest of the state should be nice, though. :deal

    With a complete analysis of the physics of light, perspective, color, and physics, I think he's over the line.

    Know what you mean - however, there are SO VERY MANY GREAT roads in that area you won't miss much if you decide to give the Dragon a Pasadena.

    IF you get to the area mid-week, preferably on a decent day right after some rainy weather you could just about have the place to yourself - like I did in the Spring of '10 - I never got passed and only came up on a couple of slow-pokes (and I was riding slowly on my FJR, loaded for camping). That said, when I departed the Atlanta area a few days later on a glorious Sunday, I gave the it a wide berth - no need for me to get collected in bike mishandling foolishness.

    One thing I noticed was 'the dragon' is VERY technical ( lots of rather tight turns) with MANY marked with paint on the roadway with " SLO " warnings - probably due to crashes, while MANY of the other roads nearby were much more fun, easier and faster with much better views - in my opinion.
