This is the post Kenny has been waiting for…sorry it is taking me so long to get to it. Monday morning we set out for a bike ride with Kenny and Becky. We were heading to Robbinsville, NC and the famous Dragon Tail. It is a stretch of Highway 129 that runs from North Carolina into Tennessee. There are 318 turns in 11 miles! Its very famous with the bikers, but it is a state highway so cars drive it too.
Do you like Kenny’s license plate? How about his Mohawk?
Cute, huh? Phantom riders!
We passed several dams that were part of the Tennessee Valley Authority’s control of hydroelectric dams. This dam is quite famous, Harrison Ford jumped from it in the the movie The Fugitive. Wally was actually wondering just where all the curves were as we passed this. But no worries,this was just the preliminary ride!
More beautiful trees…it was wonderful riding the highway lined with the trees in fall color.
Here is another part of the hydroelectric dam system. We stopped for a rest and to take some pictures. And to gawk at some of the other bikes which were doing the same.
Like Father, like Son, somewhat!
So, I guess the Dragon Tail is just a notch on our motorcycle….or at least we each bought a sticker to add!
