The Deals Gap Resort is closed for the season but I ran the "Dragon" anyway on a cool Wednesday, 11-17-21. There were maintenance crews working at the resort but only a few bikes and cars were seen. When the road is cold with loose leaves in places, I take it easier, not trusting my contact patches as much as on warm tarmac. Still, the Dragon's 318 curves are glorious and the Street Triple 765 is a true precision scalpel -- my favorite all-time bike. The RapidBike fuel module and Michelin Power GP's (32F & 30R PSI) are impressive, complimentary mods for mountain riding. During winter, I look forward to occasionally warm days (50's+) for Dragon slaying. Life is good on a Triumph, especially when the Dragon is nearby. 馃槢
Cheers from the Smokies...!

Love the area. We will be at our cabin up there near Fontana for Thanksgiving weekend. Supposed to be cool, but I'm looking forward to getting my new Speed RS on the hill.
You probably know the Fontana Village restaurant has an excellent Thanksgiving Day dinner. I took my whole family there last year. Enjoy the curves (if the weather is good, I'll be looking for a Speed RS). :) 馃憤

I rode my Kawasaki Z1000 from near the Pacific Ocean in Oregon to NC just to hit The Dragon. What a thrill that entire experience was.
Wow...that is dedication..! I salute you.

I had a Z1000 also. :LOL: I thought it was a tad heavy but it was a great street bike with a fine engine!
