Riding the Dragon!
We decided to ride the Dragon on a Monday, hoping we would miss the large crowds. It sounds like that was a good plan. Talking with some of the regulars up there. Saturday was a zoo and Sunday was not much better. It was a good choice to do this at the start of the week. We had breakfast at the Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort. It was tasty. It was also a great way to soak in all of the bikes, the smells and the sounds of the Dragon. Hearing bikes scream out of the resort and up the hill in intoxicating. We picked up our dragon stickers and then headed over to the Tail Of The Dragon. That is also a nice little store and it also is the home of Killboy. We picked up a couple of shirts and then decided it was time to ride the Dragon. If you have not ridden the Dragon, you really should find a way to do it at least once. There are so many better roads in the area, but the experience of the Dragon is unique and very cool. It is amazing how many people from outside the USA come and visit every year. Just be careful and ride your own ride and things will be fine. We went by Fontana dam and just rode around the area for the day. It was a good day of riding.
