    You bikers want the ultimate road to ride? You want a road with 318 curves in 11 miles? Check out the link above to the website for "The Dragon", the nickname for US 129 Deal's Gap, one of the best motorcycle and sports car roads in the entire country.

    This road's in my neck of the woods, I live about 1.5 hours from it. Never rode it on a bike or sports car, but have driven it. Knocked my eyes out at the time, made me go :eek: at seeing such a road was so close to where I live.

    You didn't tell them to watch out for the trucks. Seriously, watch out for trucks if you go up there. Its a popular riding place for people in Atlanta with sport bikes.

    you can have that.... there are very few people who could push that car on the dragon and live to tell about it. One of the big Issues with that vintage porsche is the rear end really wants to come around at speed. If I had to drive a car through it my first choice would be a factory five cobra....my favorite car of all time. I actually like the replicas better because of the performance improvements. next would be a honda s2000 followed by a built miata.

    just my two cents

    ps those porsches are fun as long as if you spin it youve got somewhere to go besides over the edge.
