Tail Of The Dragon - NC

 

 

Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap with 318 curves in 11 miles, is America’s number one motorcycle and sports car road.

 

This ride was one of the most adhoc rides. i was sitting on my laptop and asked my wife if i could go to Boone for the weekend. She said 'sure, go and have fun'. So its noon on a Friday and I have just decided that I am going to Boone NC for the weekend. Was chatting with one of my buddies Jay and happened to tell him that i was heading to Boone in the evening. He was like 'hell, i am coming too'. I was surprised but happy that i had some company. Co-incidence that we both had the Bilt bluetooth full face helmet. i cannot tell you how much more we enjoyed just because we had these helmets. Audio quality is clear even at 80mph, remain connected more than a mile, works great in rain and battery lasts for 8-12 hours.

Its been two years now and i dont have exact recollections of the trip. I know that from Boone NC we decided to go to Cherokee NC. When at the village there, Jay says 'we are so close to tail of the dragon - you wanna go?'. I am like 'sure - lets do it'. So we headed to tail of the dragon, again, completely unplanned. The roads heading to tail of the dragon are just as beautiful. Its a different experience out there - you get to see all kinds of motorcycles to cars. some trying to race and others just trying to enjoy the road.
