Default tail of the dragon

I am taking road trip to tennessee in may. About eight of us. Anyway, been watching youtube videos of crotch rockets hit the tail of the dragon (US RT 129) wondering if anyone here has seen any video of victories riding there. Anyone in forum from Tenn.? We want to know of other good rides while there.

If you are at the Tail of the Dragon, check out Fontana Dam then drop down to Robbinsville, NC and take the Cherohala Skyway back to Tellico Plains, TN. That makes a circle of about 150 miles of beautiful mountain scenery. I really like the Skyway, which is a limited access road that transitions from elevations of 900 to 6000 ft. You won't be disappointed.

Hey ruttrow, quite a few floorboard scraps and you didn't run over the squirrel.haha!! We can't wait, gotta get rid of all this snow here first. A.T. I have seen the skyway online. I'm sure it is better in person. Thanks for your inputs. Ride safe

Wasn't me, I just thought I would share. We are also planning a trip out that way this year. Hopefully we will be able to. We have been going to Gatlinburg area for 25 + years, never on a bike yet. Beautiful area. Ride safe
