Less than 100 from the BRP? Hmm, that puts you in easy striking distance of
'The tail of the Dragon'- US 129. If you ride on two wheels you owe it to yourself to make the run.

Welcome home!

Wolfy I'm in central nc, Raleigh to be specific. I recall driving through Lawndale a while back.

The Dragon is awesome. Some friends and I were mountainbiking in Tsali, in Almond, NC. I had to pick up one more at the the Knoxville, TN airport at midnight. The fellow that owned the cabins we were renting said that US 129 was the fastest way within reason rather than going through Cherokee on a Friday night.

I was driving a nice Mercedes-Benz E420 sedan- good tiresj and brakes, 295 HP. The tires never really kept singing until the TN side, and I'm a conservative driver. What hit me was that at almost EVERY SINGLE hard curve there were single skid marks off into the woods.
