Tail of the Dragon. It’s a magical route that car and bike enthusiasts alike put on their bucket list. It’s more than 318 curves in 11 miles, it’s a long established route that dates back before the asphalt and roaring engines were graced with its presence. Before men used the route and built upon it, it belonged to nature and was a route that was carved out by large herds of buffalo. If you really think about it, this is a path as nature intended it to be. It’s not just a road, it’s a dream, it’s a feeling, and it’s everything you envision driving to be before you get your driver’s license. This isn’t the same route you take to work every day, or the long interstate you clamor on to get where you’re going, it is more than a road, a path, a route. It is freedom, togetherness, and a sound belief that any road so beautiful, majestic, treacherous, should be driven, and with great enthusiasm.
The weekend of November 14 we will be driving the mystic route, and for those of us who have never been, we will be living a dream, and for those of you have already driven those 318 curves, you will be reliving that dream. Whatever it may be, we hope that you join us and make a drive that has been so memorable for ages and generations before us. Let’s be a part of history together, and even make a little history of our own.
See you there!!
