Tail of the Dragon vid
 
YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.



Performed on a 'closed' road in the morning. We were taking it easy, heating up our tires. The second half of the vid, I had to cut out to fit on youtube. The mustang in front looks like it is far away, its only about 15' away in most places.

Excuse the music. I had to lay something over it because of wind and engine noise. Next time, I will make sure to use a different gopro case.

Looks like a lot of oncoming traffic for a "closed" road.....?

First rule of the dragon is, don't cross the centerline, ever. Why make a great road straight. The blue mustang needs to figure out how big their car is.

I'd wish I could have roads like this close to me !! Must have been a great ride [thumb]

yes, good roads

Although i'm not sure I understood, is the goal to stay within the yellow and white lines while being the closest to the car in front ?

pretty sure the goal is to come out the other end alive!!! this road is pretty treacherous, 318 turns in 11 miles with oncoming traffic like semis and maniacs on rice rockets! my dad took his mg up there and ran it, in the rain in autumn when roads were covered in leaves, it was pretty scary!
