Drove the dragon in my e34

Drove the dragon a couple of weeks ago in my e34. 11 miles and about 318 turns The dragon is south of the Smoky Mountain National Park on the Tennessee and North Carolina border. Motorcycles everywhere! Even some foolish people on bicycles.

I drove it like an old man! Speed limit is 40 and that seems high. NC/Tenn police visibility is strong with cars, bikes and in the air. I saw a couple of motorcycles pulled over.

Beautiful time for a ride. You ever get a chance, get down to Clayton, GA. The Black Rock Mountain SP and that entire area is great for bumming around in the car.

I wish I was there right now in fact.

Reminds me that I should get up to Copper Harbor right about now. The Keewenaw is beautiful this time of year too.

I have often wanted to go there and plan to some day.

My Optomitrist has a Honda S2000 and attached his GoPro camera. He went really early in the morning one day and he was FLYIN'

When I was there there was mixed traffic of cars and cuiiser type bikes that 40-60 mph wax max except for the oca
sional sport bike that went like a rocket around everything.
