People routinely drive SUVs, trucks and other vehicles on this winding mountain road. I just drove it, and I quickly got tired of motorcycles tailgating me; 30 MPH is a reasonable restriction for this road when you aren't driving a motorcycle or a sports car. Most amusing is the "tree of shame" at Deal's Gap which shows the debris from innumerable motorcycle accidents, many of which resulted in injury and death, not to mention the huge cost to the community for the EMS services, and frequent blocking of the roadway to drag out the victims.
I applaud the Tennessee Highway Patrol for cracking down on the bikers in this area.

I travel this road frequently and I'm sick and tired of motorcycles riding my ass because I'm not going fast enough to suit them. Want to drive your motorcycle to the limit, and endanger yourself and others? Do it on private property. Originally Posted by GearHeadDave. Bikes passing on all those curves!

TN Tin Man. Location: Somewhere over the rainbow in "OZ ". I live on a curvy scenic road myself, and I can tell you the idiots on their sport bikes drive us nuts. Our road has stretches that are safe at 35 and stretches that are safe at 50, but these dopes gun it down the road at speeds of 50 to 70 miles per hour on a rural, winding, residential acre properties road. They don't care about wildlife or pets that might wander into the road. They don't care about the noise they make for people who live here. It's all about them and their thrill-seeking. We frequently see them being scraped up by the EMT's.
They have no one to blame but themselves if they get hurt or ticketed. I have no pity for those getting tickets. Slow down and obey the law and you'll have no problems. I'm a 35 year old doctor who recently moved from Los Angeles. I like riding my bike above the speed limit. And driving on major turnpikes and interstates is not typically fun. However, curvy roads are fun.
So how about having considerations for others and not simply whining because you're 55 and having nothing better to do? Are you serious?? And you haven't yet seen enough people scraped up off the highway to slow down?? It's in Robbinsville. Road most of this on our motorcycles, it was so beautiful!!
A great experience until we came upon a horrific accident involving a trike and a pickup truck pulling a boat. The people riding the trike were killed. All I can say is, be careful. As much of a thrill that it is to ride those curves, take your time, lives are precious. Drove this and loved it! Traffic stopped both ways for mama bear and two little cubs. Saw an 18 wheeler obviously lost jackknife his rig trying to make a curve on it. Be the first to add a review to the Tail of the Dragon, Deal's Gap. Is there a problem with this listing? Let us know.

And of course the tree of shame. Also has a loading dock to offload your bike from back of pick up truck. Visited the shop in October and bought great quality t-shirts and sweatshirts and had a great time! The had great deals and great photo ops as well. The "Tree of Shame" was interesting as well.

Super clean and big rooms. They even have a few kitchenettes. We have stayed here twice, great for group of guys cause some have 2 sets of bunk beds which was perfect for our group. Food is great too and they have a store for some souvenirs to show your friends that you Slayed the Dragon! Cell phone service in none here, so make sure you check in with your family and friends before you come all the way down the mountain.
