Am I late on this? The truck wasn't running anyway, but we could have taken the wife's new toy. She got an 88 GT Stang Vert a couple months ago.

We can plan something for this weekend on saturday or next weekend either day . The weather this weekend is supposed to be really nice . Let me know what you guys want/can do .

I have a question for you guys that have driven the tail of the dragon. I see pictures of semi-trucks that have dropped off the edge of the pavement. Are there a lot of trucks that drive that road? In general how much traffic is on that road on a typical weekend?

If there is a Semi on that road, he is lost...:hand: The biggest truck I have seen, was an Ambulance or maybe a Roll Back. There always seems to be a lot of bikes. The times that I went were with the RTTH, so there were lots of muscle cars too.

There is always a chance to meet a semi there because their dispatchers are morons and send them that way . I've run it a couple hundred times and only met one . COPS are the biggest concern ,next would be bikes in your lane or non-driving people in cars . I usually go on a weekday evening if I need stress relief and want to run it hard because the weekends are usually crowded . Cherohala Skyway ,Dragon , and Foothills Parkway make a loop of my favorite roads to drive . Since there seems to be no interest in a group getting together this weekend I may just go to the Cleveland TN cruise-in Sat.and grab dinner and a movie with my girlfriend.
