    Smile Anyone taken their Z8 on Tail of the Dragon

    I just recently heard about the Tail of the Dragon in North Carolina. An 11 mile stretch of road with 318 turns along the way. Have any of the members of this community taken their Z8 along this stretch of highway?

    No, but there are loads of clips of it on YouTube. It's a very well know biker road, but seems that there are a lot of accidents up there with trucks and tour buses. When I was working in Ashville a bunch of years ago I took the rental car up the Blue Ridge Parkway, and that was a lovely drive, very reminiscent of Skyline Drive here in SoCal.

    2008 Blue Ridge Parkway Trip

    Tracy and I drove the Parkway from end to end in October 2008 starting from the South (Cherokee, NC) to the end near Waynesboro VA. Total lenght of the great road is 469 Miles / 755 km. The Parkway was absolutely beautiful and in peak fall color. The traffic was very light and while we did not hit top speeds it was possible to enjoy the roads - now you wouldn't want to speed through trip anyway in order to truly enjoy the scenery.
