Deals Gap, 318 curves in 11 miles. One of the most famous Motorcycle destinations in America. A motorcycling Mecca where people from all over America and even the world make their pilgrimage in search of..................well, I'm not really sure what they're searching for. For some it's the curves. That would explain the sport bikes, but there are probably more cruiser riders that ride there. Many of them seem to be terrified of curvy roads. What brings them there? Maybe it's the hype. I'm not really sure. Maybe it's the fact that all the T-shirt vendors managed to get it renamed "the Dragon" and if you make it through, you have something to brag about. I first rode through Deals Gap in 1990, back before it became a major tourist destination. It was a different place back then. It quickly became one of my favorite roads. It is not the most challenging road in the area, other roads have much tighter and trickier curves. It is also not the most scenic. What it is, is 11 miles of nearly non-stop curves that are a blast to ride Well, it used to be a blast to ride. The road has become so famous that during the tourist season, April-October, it is often so clogged with traffic moving at a snails pace, that riding it is more frustrating than anything else. The last few years I have been mostly avoiding the place. With my wife going out of town for the weekend and a great forecast, I decided it would be a good time to head up to Deals Gap. I figured that since it was March, the traffic would be light and hopefully the cops wouldn't have started to crack down yet. And just to be different, I decided to take my Kymco Super 8 150 scooter. With 11 horsepower on tap, it should make for an interesting ride.
