Trip to the Dragon!

3rd time this year that I've been. Me and two buddies rode 4 hours there, and stayed in my parents cabins. Can't get enough of this place!

Me



Little bit of goon riding behind some slow cars.


My friend and his new Ducati 1199

At the cabins

Nice man I'll be up that way soon enough. If nothing else as soon as the parkway opens in the spring.

Good fun down there. For us it's 16h to get there. We'll be back in the spring to tear up... I mean leisurely ride the area.

After years of dreaming about it I finally got to ride The Dragon this past June. My company sent me to Commerce GA so I got to cut through on US129 all the way down. Great roads and got paid to ride the bike on them, what a plus. Wish I was on the Trident and not the Speedmaster but on a 16hr trip I went for all day comfort. Sure beat the ride back up I-75 and I-24 in the rain but I won't complain.

I love going to the dragon. I haven't been in years because of the move out west. I can't wait to get back that way and ride the Smokey's again.

I've been down there a couple of times. Can't say that I ride it all that fast, but it's some great riding. I like the Foothills Parkway as much as any of the roads down there. Smoky Mountain HD is a good stop if you're a Harley guy.
