Tail of the Dragon: North Carolina and Tennessee
Distance – 11 Miles –  30-45 mins

So famous that it’s been the subject of several movies and TV shows, legendary U.S. 129 whips up 318 tight curves in just 11 miles and could well claim to be the number one motorcycle ride in the country for sheer exhilaration.

Touring enthusiasts and die-hard sport-bike riders make a beeline for this road to test their cornering skills. Fortunately, no trucks are allowed. The road spans Deal’s Gap at the border of North Carolina and Tennessee.

Planning: Go to enjoy the ride, not to prove your bravado.
