I had a great time but there are way too many people on the road. Try it during the week. Sunday was very busy. I had a blast on the ride though.

This was an amazing surprise to come across while we were out sightseeing the mountains. It is pretty lengthy so don't be in a rush. I think there was about 422 curves within 3 miles! Tons of motorcycles and sports cars as we were riding along. There was a motorcycle hotel, which was cool, along with a Harley Davidson store... More

I've rided the dragon many times now and it doesn't loose the thrill. I would definitely suggest a weekday trip if possible. It gets really crowded on the weekends. Make sure to stop in and say hey to Killboy and Leighann at the Tail of the Dragon store.

Finally road the Dragon on my own bike this year. Have ridden on the back of bike with husband several times and loved it. Doing it on my own was very different. Lots of curves and switchbacks and you have to be on your best riding. Kind of freaked me out when a couple of cafe bikes came screaming by... More

The Tail is a nice drive. However I was expecting much more. Being from WV we are on curvy roads daily and this section of road wasn't all that the hype made it out to be. It was by far the busiest place we visited in the area. And the photographers snapping shots for tourists to buy online was a... More

If you have a motorcylce or a sportscar, go here. If you cannot go today or tomorrow, fine, but plan a trip soon. This place is worth the visit. It is a bucket list item in my book. Wehn you arrive, try and get there on weekdays as it becomes busy on the weekends. If you are a proficient rider... More

Best to travel on this with your motorcycle during off-peak times...like mid week, when a lot of the slower motorcycles aren't crowding the road.
