    Tail of the Dragon, Claw of the Dragon, Back of the Dragon. All nice twisted roads, some flatlanders seem to have problems on those. I reside in West Virginia. Millions of sharp turns, eleven straight roads---till ya hit a turn. Rode the Back of the Dragon---someone told me I was crazy to do that after dark. My reply was, "You have lines painted on the roads, its like a super highway."

    I've ridden it at night, the best part is that you can't see how far down the mountain you'll end up if you screw up in a corner LOL

    There are a lot of better roads in the area IMO, 28 out of Franklin south, (north makes the dragon look like a straight line), Cherohola Skyway, etc.
