Tail of The Dragon next week (7/4-8)

Short notice but I've decided to take a trip down to TN/NC next week. I'm riding my ZX14 down from the Chicago area, and will be solo. If anybody will be in the area next week, it would be cool to have someone to ride with.

Blue Gen1 ZX14, IL plates.

Be careful, especially on the DRAGON, watch the speed, because enforcement is not very forgiving. "You are crunchy and tasty with ketchup." One of the favorite sayings of the DRAGON. 🏍💨

Maybe carry a box of fresh donuts in the saddlebag as a forgiveness offering?

This is my 3rd trip there in just as many years. Came away last year with a trophy courtesy of a county deputy in NC, surprisingly away from the Dragon. We were hauling the mail down 74 on the way back from Bridal Veil Falls just outside Bryson City.

He cut us a huge break. He wrote us for exceeding the speed limit, and the fine was like $230 all in. Had he wrote us for speeding, it would have been a mandatory court appearance, and he said the fine would have at least double. Apparently in NC, each individual mph over 20 over bumps the fine up.
