One thing about the Dragon vs's other public roads is the ppl that run the store "Tail of the Dragon" go out in the morning and check out the road, and will put quick-dry down where/if needed, sweep areas if needed. The photo-guys will warn you if somethings going on up/down the road(kind of like flaggers on a track, but not that well). If there's a semi on the road and you pay attention to ppl in the lay-bys/on comers/photo-peeps/etc. ,they'll let you know. What the real problem is, is the on coming cars/bikes that can cross the line at any time mostly because of lack of skill, as opposed to the speeders that stay on their side most of the time, and cut where it shouldn't be a problem to on coming traffic. Back to riding durning the week, and I don't like the idea of taking a car on that road, because there's no room to get out of the way. MC only for me, thank you very much.
