The Dragon has been the meeting spot for many rallys. I know there was a Mini Cooper rally there and the Miatas meet there every year. They even have a scooter rally there. I'm sure there are others. I 've ridden Deals Gap Dozens of times, but usually on my bike. I've met people from all over the country there, even Canada who traveled hundreds of miles to tame the Dragon. It would be a great place for a meet.

Be sure to drive the Cherohala Skyway which begins just a few miles from Deals Gap. Some believe, myself included, that it is even better than the Gap. The Skyway is 50 miles of long sweepers that you can see all the way through much like a race track. The road surface is in good condition as well.

Watch for law enforcement, especially on the weekends when traffic picks up.

My place is about 20 minutes from the Dragon. I've run it for years with various bikes and cars. Now I've got a new ZX4 to try out.

Yeah, I live about an hour from the Dragon. I have a motorcycle that I like to ride there and on the Blue Ridge Parkway and etc. The Dragon is a good place to see what your ride can handle. You guys be careful. There are now NC Highway Patrol on motorcycles stationed there. Those 318 curves in 11 miles have been the site of an accident or two.

I will actually be driving through there on my my way to Maine (I hate I-95, so I take the scenic route) on the 18th or 19th. It would be cool to meet some of you up there and go for a run. I wish I could be on my bike, but I'm selling it this weekend. I'll probably be driving my Duster.
