Curves and more curves. Need to do at least once in lifetime. Get the shirt and a picture so you can say you've done it. Best to go during week, weekends packed.

We survived the Tail of the Dragon during our vacation to the Great Smoky Mountains. Scenery was beautiful and there are pull-offs where you can let motorcycles go around you. 11 miles, 318 curves.
