No, but plan on heading that way in a couple of weeks but I am going during the middle of the week to avoid the traffic. There are a bunch of better roads out this way than the Dragon but it is one of those you have to do if you have not. I've rode it a couple of dozen times over the years but a buddy of mine hasn't so I am riding down for the day with him and heading back home.

Don't let the Dragon bite you. Ride safe and have fun.

I'll get there, eventually.

Had a blast there Easter weekend. Ride your ride and try not to leave anything at the tree.

Also, 129 is only one of MANY twisty roads in the area. Do the Dragon so you can say you did it, but get out and explore the rest of the area as well.

Was supposed to be but things haven't panned out. Maybe next month.

Have a safe time.

We are hitting dragon once then running surrounding area. I'm more interested in the other areas. I didn't realize until after I made reservations that it was a holiday weekend but.... It's going to be good no matter what.

I was just down again 2 weeks ago and I'm taking my wife down in another week. As stated, best to avoid the weekend if possible, or hit it Sunday afternoon.

We also hit the Snake, Devil's Triangle, Devil's Whip and a bit of the Moonshiner's 28. Overall a great ride, second time to the Dragon and I enjoyed the Snake and Devil's Triangle much more. Less traffic and longer but the Dragon has no cross traffic or intersections.

Enjoy the ride, I love that part of the country. And if you have the chance, head over to Maggie Valley and stop at Wheels Through Time!

I might be riding down to the Wheels Through Time museum on Saturday. I've passed by it a bunch of times but have never stopped in to check it out.
