The Dragon, Deal's Gap, NC 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 at seeing such a road was so close to where I live.
