That road is so sick to drive! I was down there with a bunch of friends a couple of months ago and I can't wait to go back!

Here's a link to my post from then: Tail of the Dragon

Nice run! But shame on you for crossing a double yeller! Just kidding, I agree if you've got visibility down the road...I think you better slow down too, there's speed limits posted for good reason. Where are you going in such a hurry?

Don't get me wrong, it looks like a nice mountain road but it is way overrated in the sense that some people draw comparison to the Nurburgring. Those people have no idea what they are talking about. I've driven on better mountain roads in the Eifel mountains than what I see in the video. Certainly not worth the drive for me to check out especially with the amount of bikers I see in the video and I hear the po pos like to hang out there also.

I actually liked this other road a little bit better called the Cherohala Skyway. Maybe people are comparing both the Dragon and the Cherohala together. Google it!

If a guy came around that corner on a motorcycle and got slaughtered by some moron who thinks hes a race car driver, you probably wouldn't be saying that. If you want to HIT DA APEX, then do it on a race track and not on a road where people cycle, ride motorcycles, and drive like normal people. Speeding is one thing, but crossing into the oncoming lane at high speeds like that is just 16-year-old-stupid.

As stated if youd open your damn eyes and or learn to read was that'd the only time there was a dbl yellow incursion was when clear line of present was available.

You're right. Because you could "see ahead of you" you thought it was a good idea to cross into the oncoming lane and endanger anyone else on the road. I feel like I'm talking to a 16 year old who just got their license. What if someone on a motorcycle or another car was doing the same thing as you coming the other way? with that road it sure does happen. Both of you speeding would've killed eachother. I dont know why you're trying to justify driving like a moron on a public road. Stop.

Sweet video. I have watch it at least 5 times!

Nice video. I hear the police like to sit on that road. I guess they didn't bother you.

.... When we bought my wife's 328 Wagon a few years ago she secretly negotiated a deal for me to have an E92 DCT for a day in order to close the deal..... That's a good wife!

... We took it straight to the dragon. One of the best days I ever had while living in Knoxville.

Great road.

What microphone do you use? Is it a GoPro camera?

Nice vid.
