My son and I took the trip down the Tail of the Dragon today, we went from the tennessee side and ended up at Deals Gap. Pulled in at the Grill there and ate.. Must have been 100 Motorcycles there, and everyone took the time to stop and look at my car when i pulled in, about a dozen came over and looked it over, and i had to tell them everything about it...
the Tail is a great drive, as long as you stay out from behind minivans and pickups....

AND...as long as no semis are using up both lanes to make some of those 180 degree switchbacks. :D Oh and lest we forget the squids on the crotchrockets whizzing around you in a no passing zone...wait a sec...I think the entire 11 miles is a no passing zone! :eek: :lol: It is a great road...just did it on the bike during my trip down there 2 weeks ago. :thumbs:

Picture of my son and I on the tali of the Dragon

If you want to go to see some pictures of the Tail of the Dragon, Go to www.killboy.com.. Our picture is on the first page, just scroll down to near the bottom of the page, I am 5th from the bottom right now..
I don;t know if it is ok to do this but since it has his website on the pic i will post it anyway... if i shouldn;t one of the mods can remove it..
Thanks.

Tim...he will probably have a few more pics of you and your son up on his site later today. He takes quite a few shots of every car and bike that goes by and posts them all on his site. You have to click on "the store", and then find the day that you were there, then click on "cars and trucks". I ordered my own pics from the day that we were there on the bikes last month...pretty cool. There are a few other photograhpers that are usually there taking pics also. Try checking out www.dragonslayerphotos.com and www.zeefoto.com for more pics of your Sky slaying The Dragon. :thumbs:

Ram Fan- You going to the Gap trip in August? Woohoo. I'll be there. I'm from Bloomington, IL. We are going to go a day or 2 early to do some extra cruising, look at land, etc.. We go down several times a year with the motorcycles or cars. Actually next week we are down there with the motorcycles for a week. Love it, love it, love it. We are retiring there. Corse that will be 20yrs from now, but one can dream and get ready for the free days. :D
