Has anyone been to the tail of the trail in TN? I've been many times on my bike and one in the V...it was awesome. I was wondering if there is some interest in making a trip down there. I think it would be fun having several cars go at once. On weekends they even have photographers in the turns taking pics of you. I live in southern Ky so it is about 2.5 hrs away from me. Im willing to meet up somewhere. Im pretty flexible on the logistics...

Just got the V all back together last night and haven't done any test drives to check for leaks, so I don't know if a drive up there is going to happen this weekend on such short notice. I think I'm free the first weekend in Aug though!

To me that would depend on what other things we may get into. I could pitch in a little for like Friday night so i can drive up that night and then would just drive back Saturday night....

GDPossehl
07-23-12, 12:04 PM
I'm up for anything really. Fri & Sat work for me or we could skip Friday evening traffic and just head up Saturday morning, stay Sat night, and have the option of two days of fun. Most of the larger cabins require a min 2 night stay though. It could be reasonably priced if we get enough people interested. I think 8 is the largest sleeping arrangement I've seen in a cabin, but that includes double beds for couples.

Crash-Override
07-23-12, 02:03 PM
hmm.....I think we should get a list going for the yes' and the days they would prefer.

So:

GDP: Anytime the weekend of the 18th.
Crash: Saturday is 99%, finding out surrounding.
SGT: Saturday is solid


Lets extend this as needed so we can get a good head count....also are we inviting other locals (Vs or not)?

GDPossehl
07-23-12, 02:10 PM
Agreed. Copy and paste the list and add your name if you're in.

Spouses/Significant others welcome of course.

I'm open to other folks who want to tag along, but let's hold out til the V guys have an opportunity to jump in.

Tail of the Dragon is a great experience. I'll never forget the G-meter reading 1.27...and the years worth of rubber i burned off my brand new Toyos i had just put on before going up there. Go early and in the middle of the week or consider it a scenic drive, not an exciting driving experience. I drove it up and down before getting enthusiastic at all. Pays to know the road.

jeph054
07-24-12, 09:37 PM

I'll be up there Saturday no doubt. It's a 2 hour drive from my dad's house although I'd rather get a place up there with a small group at least for a night. That way I can also enjoy some driving Sunday and also get to enjoy some of the V community beyond an awkward parking lot meeting.

07-26-12, 10:42 PM
So are we going to say meet Saturday the 18th and the those that want to stay the night (please call that out) can.

07-27-12, 09:50 AM
4am? Hardcore.

jeph054
07-27-12, 10:06 AM
So as of now it looks like there is only 4 of us and of those 4, 2 can spend the night. the 2 that can spend the night is myself and GD but we are on opposite sides of the Dragon. That is not very convient.
So it looks like we are rolling Saturday, if we spend the night it would be Saturaday night and mess around alittle on Sunday Morning/early afternoon. Is that about right? I'm down with that.
Any suggestions on where to meet? And a time?

GDPossehl
07-27-12, 10:08 AM
I say we could meet in front of the "Tail of the Dragon" rest stop at the bottom of the NC side. I think the time will be better determined closer to the date.

sssnake
08-09-12, 11:56 AM
OK guys I've been checking around on both the Tail website and several people that actually made the run several times. From what I can tell and from what a previous post indicates is the Tail may be crowded on the 18th and the opportunity for a spirited run may only happen fairly late at night. While I like the V headlights making night runs is not nearly as attractive as daylight runs. So I guess I'm out for this trip. I am very interested in doing this so if you guys decide to do it again when the roads are less crowded let me know.

GDPossehl
08-09-12, 12:13 PM
I wouldn't let that discourage you. While the actual "dragon" may be a little high traffic there are plenty of other roads nearby that are equally as fun. Also, when I went this time last year there were a fair amount of people there and I had a blast. If it's still hot out, bikers are less likely to clog up the roads. This is the time right before the peak season.

Agreed... I go to the Dragon many times on my bike or car and I NEVER pay attention to the speculation of how crowded it might be. If it is busy wait a few hours and go back. Like GDP said, there are many other roads close that are just as fun. Plus you will be with your fellow V'ers...so you cant go wrong.:bighead:

Geez, you all sure know how to make a guy wanna lay outta work Saturday lol. I can't come then but if you are staying the night there I would totally be down for a Sunday morning/afternoon run.

And to reply to a few comments: #1- never let the "it will be crowded" comments deter you from experiencing the time of your life. I've been a few times since I am only about an hour or so away & I've never seen such courteous enthusiasts. Bikers pull over for you. Cars for them. Just know your limits, respect them & respect other's rights to the road as well.

#2- I am in the same boat as some of you being the only V in my area. I would love to meet some other owners.

Went down Saturday alone. Had a blast anyway though. Apparently there wasn't much up there that was very exciting cause there was a lot of buzz over the V. Every time I stopped I had people drooling all over it. Even Daryll aka killboy (www.killboy.com) said he had some bikers stop where he was posted up shooting pics talking about the "wicked loud black sedan". One sport bike rider followed me back across and at the overlook stopped and asked me what the hell I was driving. He was impressed with the handling. That felt good.

Yours wouldn't be a platinum w/ darker wheels would it? I ask because I passed one going the opposite direction on one of those various mountain roads Thursday with my awesome rental car.....

Anywho I was coming off I26 on exit 24 where it splits up into the 3 lanes for the light. I put on my right blinker and started to make that turn to the right when a corolla smacked me right on the tire going about 20 mph faster than me. Did about 6k-ish in damage at last estimate but they keep finding things so who knows at this point.

The shop fixing it said it should be done by the 14th, however that has not been confirmed and since they got it Monday afternoon you can see how fast this is moving...still they are being very anul around fixing it perfectly so I'm not complaining. If they do push it past the 14th then I would be in the area that following weekend so can update you as I find out more.

Crash, that sucks man...I just received and huge chunk of exploded tire on I-75 going 75. Took out my Left headlight and bumper. Which I JUST had repainted! sooooo pissed.

That's when mine got messed up too, a week after paint. These things are magnets!

The closest Allstate cert'd shop was GrindStaff Chevy in Johnson City, so they got the work. They seem nice enough and have kept me updated as best as possible.

Allstate insurance...the company I use. If I use a certified shop from their list then the work is guaranteed for as long as I have the car.

After working in the body shop, dealership, and rental car biz for a few years (just exited the field in Jan), Allstate was the biggest pain in the ass to work with. Super cheapskates when it came to anything, and it was like pulling teeth to get any payment from them. Lots of the better body shops (at least in my area) would refuse to work with them on a regular basis.

I'll be up to the tail the 17th thru 19th just my V and a miata in this trip but if anyone happens to be around come on out. I know a weekday trip is hard for most folks but I am hoping to catch the roads a little less crowded.

Crash- that sucks, man. That is where I live. Where did it happen in JC? I am one of only 3 or so in the entire Tri-Cities and surrounding areas lol. Hate to hear of one getting smashed.

On a side note, I believe myself and some other local guys will be heading down to Deals Gap on the 22nd. They are all import guys so would be nice to have a little back up lol. Any takers?

I might be able to swing the 22nd. I have to check with work and wife.

Well the car still isn't done... So now if it's done mid week I am going to try and pick it up then, however I may have to wait until next weekend.

If that happens then the 22nd may work for me too......I want my car back

Good deal, guys! We are going to the UT game that night so we will probably try to go down kinda early so we can make at least a couple passes. Getting new tires this week so I need to break them in good lol.

Just got back from the trip. In a word AWESOME! I'm going to do a write-up here and post a few pics and movies. If you've never done it don't miss the chance. I have never beat on my V this hard for this long. Great trip!

Hey sssnake what color is your car? The wife & I saw a Platinum V sitting at the gas station at the intersection of 129 and the road to the Skyway outside Robbinsville on Saturday. We hit up a bit of the Skyway but the NC Po-Po were out in force. Stopped and talked to Darryl (killboy) up there.

Once we got to the Dragon it started raining so we did not get any footage. Only made one trip across. On a side note, my new Falken tires did very well even in the wet up there!

I've never been to the Dragon before, but have wanted to for a while. I'm heading to Indianapolis (from Jacksonville, FL) Friday 10/5 and coming back Monday 10/8. I'm intentionally taking a detour to hit the Dragon for the first time. Will snag some video. If anyone is around Monday afternoon, let me know.
