    Sounds like a plan, JP. Tail of the Dragon consists of 318 curves in 11 miles. It's a great trip whether you're a rookie or a veteran of the Dragon! The Tree of Shame includes many motorcycle parts lost by riders while on the Tail, fortunately, none of mine!

    Not going to miss Tail of the Dragon two years in a row......I've got an Eagle Riders code as well for those that want to join or rent.

    Members can sign up online https://www.eaglerider.com/motorcycle-club . Using my code ( XPGMA - all capitals- ) will get me one instant credit for each sign up and will give the new member 2 credits to start with. Not a bad deal.

    See you in Gatlinburg/Pidgeon Forge!

    It sounds fun but I measured and did the weight and balance and I don't think the bike will fit, even with the back seats out...

    The Texan will join in ........

    This is great! I am ready-to-ride and looking forward to making sparks around those fast corners with my knee pads. Zoom! Mine easily fits into the Sundowner.

    Is that a MV 500? I bet the weight will work but it will be a tight squeeze to get it in the baggage door.
