My driving style is slow on the straights and fast though the turns.
Most LEOs are set up to get speeders on the straights, not the turns.
Turns are fun to go fast, straights are boring.
Straights are going to give high speed tickets, turns that are over the limit aren't that much ticket wise.
Now remember this applies to me........

"Blount County and the Tennessee Highway Patrol Cordially Invite You to Several Tickets Today." It looks like a blast of a road, but for that.
Sounds like a great strategy! By the looks of it, i'll be done after Round 1. To avoid traffic and LEO how early does one have to hit it?I go to the Dragon once a year and spend a week there, when I do the dragon I'll run it once in both directions at a normal pace, to check out the surface and "surroundings". Then I'll do about 10 laps, till my time from end to end starts to slow, which tells me I'm getting tired mentally. So I'll quit for the day and drive the other roads that are less intense.
Well, the 1st thing is I don't ride on the Dragon on the weekend, just Tue tru Thr , in the mornings, and and to add to my pleasure I'll watch the riders too, from the Tail OTD lot, so as not to catch up with anyone before I start. It seems that in most cases the timing works going each way, because most riders stop at each end , where as I just do a U-turn and and head back, repeat.Sounds like a great strategy!

I've gone down there for 5 years in a row now, but do my riding during the week(I really don't care for being on that thing on weekends), But every time I get there I'll make one scouting run to look it over then make about 8 runs at my speed level before I start getting tired, then finish the day riding the other roads.I can tell you that the first few times I tried that I would be going pretty cautiously.
Ya, it looks like a lot of fun, but I think I would be constantly thinking about a semi trailer blocking both lanes around the next blind corner. Wouldn't it be great if it was closed to traffic at certain times, say 5 - 8 a.m. and was open only 1 way. They could charge people big bucks and give official times. I'd be in for that.That's crazy.....
