WE managed to make it to the top of the Dragon on Hwy 129 without getting a ticket or running over a Harley.The all but new Caddy drew a crowd at the top with guys getting out of riced out Mitsubishi to get pictures of my classy ride. Harley riders were full of questions and pride as everyone wanted to know about it. "Is that thing a stick?", 'What size motor"?
    From there we went back down the hill and hit Moonshiner 28 towards Cherokee... 28 is a blast. Not near as tight as 129 but much faster. I was still being responsible but may have bumped over the limit on a few corners. We made our way to the Casino where I dropped it with the Valet. Hours later when I called for the car, you would have thought I was driving the freaking space shuttle. It would seam it was the 1st V the young valet had ever seen and he was in love. I quickly explained that the car and I where honeymooning and snatched my keys back. Crashed in a Hotel down the road and headed out the following morning back into Ga through the Nanatahala Gorge into Blue Ridge. What a great weekend in a fantastic car. Can waite till my next drive.
    They must have had you confused with me. lol. All this talk about the Dragon from a number of people on this forum. I just had my first crack at it last Friday.

Tore through 129 until the road was choked off by SLOW motorcycles on the way back. Really, who the eff rides a TRIKE through the mountains at 30mph. I rode the brakes the whole damn time. Ruined my experience. I should have pulled off and waited.

    We'll have to get a group of V's up there this fall.
    A well driven V is faster than any cruiser bike on the Tail. You need a sport bike to lean far enough in many of those turns.

    I ran with a friend of mine, me in my '09 V and him in his C5 Vette. We each did a run with his GoPro. Only problem is the runs look slower than they were running the mount high on the windshield. We should've had them on the driver's side door or fender...
