Default Tail of the Dragon

I will be riding the dragon on Friday August the 2nd. Looking for any other Victory riders. Come one come all. We will be staying at the dragon pit and BBQ 1st and 2nd. Just look for the fat old guy riding the cool highball.Hope to see y'all there, looking for some dry skies, northwest florida has been getting hammered almost daily with rain these past few weeks.

Default My 2nd Trip

Roger on watching out for the crazies. It was mid November last time I went and even though it was 50 degrees it was still crowded.I am thinking this will be peak riding weather so I am planning for even more traffic. The first trip I kept the speed under 50, mainly because I didn't want a ticket. This time my 21 year old nephew will be with us on a rental bike so once again I plan to be responsible. We plan on doing some of the other major roads as well. I would move there if I could talk the wife into it, but shw hates the cold.

I was there about 2-3 months ago. I must have hit it just at right time of day. Traffic wasn't that bad for us. There are a lot of great roads around there to be explored.

Default Skyway

The skyway takes you to the 100 ft waterfall if I'm not mistaken. We went there just to see it and ended up staying there a couple of hours. Beautiful country side, friendly folks. I forget the road number but one of the roads close to Deals Gap off of 129 is supposed to be awesome riding as well. Too bad it is so far from NW Florida, but hey those folks don't get to ride along the beach every weekend either

Moonshiner's 28 is off of 129. It's a great ride. Skyway takes you to 5733 feet but I don't remember waterfall.
