As some of you know, another member (thakurtis) and I took a trip to deals gap this past september (http://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.php?t=155545). We are planning on going again this september. Would like to get an acutal 600rr meet when we go down. So I wanted to feel you guys out on what you think. For those of you who are unfamiliar with deals gap, here's a link to their site, http://www.dealsgap.com/. If you think you may want to go, propose a date so we can work together on this. RIGHT NOW I AM LOOKING AT SEPT 8-12. I think it would be a blast. There are a ton of cabin rental companies down there. Here is the link to the one we went through, very reasonable to, http://www.cabinsusa.com/.

Construction starts no later than April 5 and is to be done by July 31. However, the contractor will get a huge bonus if they finish earlier. Good news people!!!

Where are you guys coming from? It would be a straight shot south on I-81 from North-West Va. for me.

If it could be so, I would be game for the first week in August. Aug. 1st through the 6th.

keep me posted, I would need to know a good deal in advance...

Possibly. I won't know till it's closer to the date.

Most locals say till August but who knows till time gets closer and they actually start doing crap there. My GF's family is 10mins away from us129.

I'm game as well..I'm about an hour and a half away from there. I usually make several trips a season..Just an FYI..if any of you guys out there aren't 100% legal. i.e. license, insurance, tags, improperly mounted tag...might be in your best interest to get all this in order before making the trip to the Gap. The cops there are real douce bags and will hassle the crap out of you over the smallest detail. TN also has an eye protection law which they will ticket you for, if your face sheild is up you must have on glasses... Also the speed limit is 35. (Sucks!) most of the time there are too many cruisers in the way to go much faster than that anyway..Don't get me wrong it is an AMAZING ride. Just don't go there with the intention of hauling ass or acting crazy because they will nail you in a heartbeat.

And for those wanting to go earlier or that are closer and could swing a weekend 1 day ride and not want to spend the night read below & visit link.

I'm local, same distance as "Tony Tiger" and have put up another thread of people interested in taking several rides not just to the dragon but come other good local roads and such.. It's in the south/southeastern forum here's the link.. Normally take all the curvy roads on the way to the dragon etc..

I hear the Cherohala Skyway is nice too, and some other local roads, just look around Google Maps.

I'm down if everything falls into place. Being married and with a newborn, it's just too soon to know.

03-30-2010, 02:27 PM
I'd rather ride the skyway 100 times more then the F*ing Dragon.. Much more smooth flowing and can haul ass w/o worrying about a cop around every corner etc.. It's also not as crowded as it's 50+ miles long and very senic for those photographers.. :)

I've been once...going back again on April 8-11th.

Cherohala is AWESOME...much better than dragon ever thought. Hellbender's is great too (rte 28). Highest elevation is Santeetlah (elev. 5900ft). There is SOO much better than the dragon.

Even if it's closed, you can still go down there. Just go in the back way through Cherohala. It'll be practically secluded, and you'll have most of the roads to yourself.

03-31-2010, 12:47 AM
I'm down for the meet. The dragon is OK, but there are better roads around it if you ask me. I'll be trailering from ATL and probably camping near the Natahala.

Lean.In.
03-31-2010, 09:39 AM
I guess one can have an opinion on roads "better" than the dragon, but it depends on what style of riding you want to do...long sweepers? Then go Cherohala or Foothills or wherever. But if you want a very technically challenging road with increasing/decreasing/off camber/chicane style to it, you'd be hard pressed to find a "better" road than 129.

Although I will agree that the fuzz has gotten a bit thicker up there...even the Foothills Pkwy is bad now. But go in October or November on a sunny day during the week when the season is over, and you have the whole road to yourself...and no fuzzy navels.

Last year was my first time to the dragon. I am not gonna lie, I thought it was blast. I couldn't get enough. The roads the scenery the people, everything was amazing. Personally, I don't know how it could get better than that lol. I saw 1 cop the 4 hours that I was out there. Traffic wasn't bad at all. There was an s2k club and a fiero club when we were there.

Im definitely down. I live about 1 1/2 hours away and made 9 trips there last season. Gotta say the dragon was the slowest 11 miles of the trip(got stuck behind two fat girls on a fat boy) Id be down for a t-shirt too. There was a thread somehwere with someone trying to make some stickers with a pretty cool shot of an RR that would look good as the logo. But Im down for whenever and could probably get a couple buddies with RRs to go too.

I'm down for that, it's about a 4 hour trip from here and I may be able to get a hitch installed on my car and a bike trailer so I won't have to ride the entire way.

From WBIR:

TDOT officials plan to reopen most of the section of US 129 know as "The Dragon" during daylight hours beginning Monday, despite the challenges emergency crews will face responding to wrecks on the curvy stretch of road.
According to a news release, the stretch of U.S. 129 from the Tabcat Bridge to the North Carolina state line will be open to traffic each day between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. for all but commercial and large RV traffic. The road will remain closed to all traffic overnight.
However, the section of U.S. 129 from just past the Foothills Parkway to the Tabcat Bridge will remain closed as crews work to remove a rockslide that closed the roadway in March.
TDOT said Tennessee Highway Patrol officers will monitor the road while emergency responders from Graham County, North Carolina will be called if there are accidents with injuries.

The rockslide is expected to be cleared by July 31. However, TDOT will provide an incentive to the contractor that is clearing the road and securing the rock if the work is completed early.

TALLASSEE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Department of Transportation will reopen an 11-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 129 on Monday, April 12, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. for motorists who ride “the Dragon,” a curvy section of road with 318 turns.

The reopened section of the Dragon will be from Tabcat Bridge near Chilhowee Lake to the North Carolina line. The section of U.S. 129 from just past the Foothills Parkway to the Tabcat Bridge will remain closed as crews continue to work on rockslides that closed the highway in March.

This means that motorists must access the Dragon from the North Carolina side, and only between the hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. TDOT officials said Highway 129 through the mountains is still closed to thru traffic, and that motorists wishing to travel from Robbinsville, N.C. to Blount County still will need to follow detours.

The rockslide work is expected to be completed by July 31. However, TDOT is providing an incentive of $6,500 per day to complete the work early. If work is completed by July 1 the contractor will receive a full incentive of $195,000. If work is not done by July 31, the contractor will face a penalty of $6,500 per day until the work is completed.

Up-to-the-minute information on progress on the rockslide and detour maps can be found online at www.tn.gov/tdot by clicking on the link “Rockslide Closures” at the top of the page.

The whole area up there ROCKS!! So many twisties they can't be counted! Tight turns, sweepers, switch backs, decreasing radius, elevation changes, and high speed turns. I've been there 5 times since 2007. I hope I'm available to be apart of this.

Speaking as a "Dragon" regular.... I go there 3-4 times a year...know the LEO and one of the photographers very well...I would be down for a annual meet... but i am going july 12th weekend... but has anyone checked to make sure there are not a lot of car/bike clubs then? i normally go when the roads are hotter in the summer versus the later months..ie sept...but that just my opinion...and normally..the cheapest place to stay is at the deals gap campground for around 59-69 a nite and they hold 3 ppl... but you have to call and see when they have open slots.

Also..I can check with the photographer freind and have him do a group shot at the dam and we could prolly get a good deal on photos....and the hotels in robbinsville is a good bet also..everyone can have their bike close to the rooms versus the fontana resort..plus bringing a grill and cookouts was a blast when we went at the san ran hotel...

Wow!!! I had no idea I have been on that route before. But it was in a Jeep cherokee, hella fun road, couldn't imagine what a blast it would be on two wheels. We were staying in Gatlinburg, took the route all the way to Cherokee NC, then came back. I will look at my schedule, coming from Hampton Roads Va, it would be an 8 or so hour ride from my house to get to that area. September might work, depending on how busy we are.

I will provide updated info once I have my schedule...

Looks like a blast!!!:cheers:

Slow is a realitize term to a bunch of people that have never riden together. you have no clue if the spread of ability is going to range from AMA fast ability, to stupid fast all balls no brain ability, down to slow as a snail and everywere inbetween. but thats the great thing. its a social event and hopefully the egos dont ruin it. i usally have a problem with riding in a group that is this big, but we will see. i think i may stay at the famious two wheel inn. any other suggestions?

08-20-2010, 11:09 AM
I wasnt categorizing anyone but my roommate b/c I ride with him. Each rider should ride at their own comfort level and ability. But it would probably be best if we dont ride in one large group everywhere. Probably best to split up into a few groups depending on how many we have come. Put fast with fast and slower with slower riders. Just set a location to meet up and go.

Not to mention there are copes EVERYWHERE on that route and they don't hesitate to give out aggravated speeding tickets like a pedo gives out candy.

You guys should have a ton of fun though. I've done the route in my supercharged tC and it was a blast even at lower speeds. My motorcycle experience level does not warrant that far of a ride just yet. Hopefully next year!

I agree about the skyway being more fun than the dragon due to traffic. Dont get me wrong, the dragon is a feat itself. Cool thing too is you get to view all the pictures from killboy, moonshine and us129 photos. We went during the weekda july 14-16th and there definitely was hardly any traffic and cops. We stayed at this cabin right off the skyway for bout 100 per night, sleeps three individuals or couples easily with a garage and everything.

Alright cool.... Deals Gap Resort has a bath house with showers and everything for people who camp, though I'm not sure if it's locked or not or how that works (never camped there before). Guess we'll figure that out when we get there, lol

I'm not sure whether I'll be out there friday night or saturday morning. If I come out friday night it'll have to be after work, so I might not get out there until 8:30-9:00. If it's slow though I'm sure I can talk my boss into letting me leave early... he's always cool with that. But either way, this is the tent I'll be staying in.... (and yes I know my tent is set up in my living room, hahah :retard:)

And I'm riding my bike out there, so it'll likely be parked right next to the tent

I would really like to pull through on this one but I don't think I can manage spending the money for the correct gear for a ride like this :( if I were closer and i could go all leisurely then sure but I know I'd be tempted...looks like I'm gonna have to wait till the next g2g.

i feel your pain, this trip has growingly consumed my wallet! first it was the van, then the 2 pitbull restraints(eff they are expensive), then i need ball joints for the van, then tires, now registration, all this and i havent even left the driveway... is still have an estimated $800(4000 miles) in gas to spend. oh well, a week camped out on the dragon and all the other roads will make it worth it!!!!

My digi cam quit working for a while last night too after we got soaked on the ride back to the gap store, and my camera was in my pocket for the first couple minutes (I pulled over and put it in my jacket sealed pocket), but then it started working again after I let it sit overnight.

I need to remember to bring my rain gear with me, lol. Sat night we ate at that same mexican restaurant in robbinsville, and on the way back the sky let loose soooo bad, raindrops the size of golf balls + fog = roughly 15-20 mph for the last 6 miles or so, from way before the dam, all the way up to the gap store. Had to ride with visors open just to see the road. To say we were utterly soaked would be a gross understatement, and where was my rain gear?? Where else but sitting in my backpack inside the tent!
