Deals Gap run

For any familiar with Deal's Gap on the TN/NC border. My local Indy had a Poker Run this weekend and I did several laps on the Dragon.

Your link isn't working. Guessing it's a private page?


Anyway, love the country down there, and they actually do a pretty good job of maintaining the roads, which is nice.

Botched by the FB copyright police apparently because of a song I added in the background. Guess I'll have to edit and repost. My external mic on my GoPro was jacked apparently otherwise I would have nice S85 noise in the video.

Had that happen to me a few times. Have a great day at the autocross, thinking I'm gonna have some sweet exhaust or intake noise videos, end up with a bunch of static and wind. Sucks.

No music also, because YouTube decided my music should be copyright protected and excluded......

Deals Gap is a great run.
I've done a few runs on a GSXR 1000 before but never in the beast.
It's best when you have someone running a few thousand feet in front of you that can radio back to let you know of traffic or cops around the next turn.

(motorcycle helmet intercom in my case but a mobile phone will work just as well when in a car)

They were out in force that day too, so I had to take it easier than I normally would.

From what I understand they are always out in force there.

This is why you have to attack it as a team if you want to have any real and relatively safe fun.

I go up there quite a bit, previously with my M3 and a sport bike. In general if you aren't driving like an idiot they leave you alone.
