I love the early morning runs during the event. Well worth getting up and out by 7-8 am. At that time, "Why yes, I do own the road."
Out by 6:30am, relaxing drive up 28 to 129 be there by 7 and rip it up to the outlook turn around get out and look and then rip it to 28 and then to the lodge for breakfast....
From 8am-5pm the mentality of the doucharley riders is that they own it.
usually I don't see the asshat cruisers until 10 am. Mostly its people who knowingly break the speed limits out there early
I think I wanna try an early run this year.
My hooning of the Legacy was caught by Killboy around 830 am. I would of had the road to myself, minus Mr. Greg and Mr Nathan in front of me slowing me down
When me PainIs4ThaWeak Nomar06 tflo2000 & more (sorry cant remember y'll) mud slided right after the overlook mile marker 9 or 10
So there's road blocked @ the overlook...
I caught a few of the photographers off guard on my run up that morning but i got 2 or 3 good photos on the run back..
We got lucky that weekend. The Dragon had a mudslide on the west TN side but was still open from the east.
That's the edited 2 min version the full version is on my youtube.
Me too. I meant to go last year, but I didn't have much energy. I tried to stay up for the night runs. I should be back to normal by this year. Early and night runs, maybe sleep during the day.
I'm just not a morning person, never was.
Glad to see you'll be around for the night runs, we need some I6 music blaring off the trees. If I have the WRX it will be quiet this year, oh well.
I love Mike's Si. It's a nasty beast. In addition to that...it's the only Si I've personally seen that belches as much (if not more) black smoke from the exhaust as mine.
Thanks! Sorry it broke before you could get more video :\
Edit: .... Speaking of - Did you post this particular run on youtube (the full run) ?
Edit 2: Ah, nvm - You JUST said you had it on your page, lol.
Edit *3* : Dammit, lol - looks like good ol youtube screwed me again ... seems like the full video got cut to 19 seconds total :\
I have not watched this, but I would imagine this is the full run
Hmm... That link seems to work for me today. Not sure why it didn't a couple days ago. :shrug:
8 years ago today the 1st 9th Civic Tail of the Dragon Meet was wrapping up. Everyone was heading home.
