I was on it a couple of years ago when they had it shut down for the rock slide on the TN side. Got there kinda early and rode it down to the slide and back into NC twice. It was just me and a few other riders on it that morning.

I have road the Dragon and the Cherohola Skyway every year at least once every year for the past 10 years.
What can I say , we love riding in the Smokies.
I agrea with Saddlebag on this one the Dragon is a blast to ride on off days very technical and a lot of fun. You just have to stay in your lane and watch the corners that are blind for on-comers. I like to ride it in early spring or late fall before / after the leaves, it helps visibilty.
I have seen a lot of wrecks on the Dragon but the only fatility was on the Skyway, 2 superbikes went down in a corner just ahead of our group.
The first guy just slid off the road the second ended up in the woods, he didn't make it. All we could do was pray and wit for the paramedics Way to much speed up there.
My experiance ...... Dragon:
a blast, loads of fun especialy on off days. Lots of coners. You can have a ton of fun at decent speeds.
Cherohola Skyway:
Another great road, fun to ride but you do have to watch your speed. There are several reducing radious cornes that you can carry to much speed into. Anyway if you ride this road fast you'll miss the best part which is the fantastic views from up there.
Next time I get down that way I'll have to look up the Triangle and the Rattler.

Done the dragon more than a few times. Highway 80 off of 70 between Asheville and Marion is 30 miles of the same thing only better. I like the dragon too. You ride for what you think is 5 minutes--stop at the end and discover it was 20 minutes. I also heard 34 deaths and many were not the bikers fault.
