My 2016 White Hawk 25BHS made it through US129 The Dragon
Just got back from a vacation in the Smoky Mountain National forest. On the way there we went through Pigeon Forge and up the National Park drive to Cherokee,NC. The drive down that road was crazy. 360 degree turns, tunnels, slow drivers, etc.
So we tried another way home with GPS. Well the nav system took us right to the heart of US129 "The Dragon". We popped on it at what was called "The Tail of the Dragon." 318 turns in 11 miles. There was huge signs saying The road is restricted to all semis and all trailers over 30'. Heavy fines will incur if caught. My trailer was 29' end to end. Barely legal.
I had never heard of this road before. We saw bikers everywhere. There was a one biker restaurant at the turn. We stopped to see what was up. They all looked and me and my family like we were crazy. We made sure to buy a magnet for the RV fridge once we found out what we were in for.
The drive was freaking awesome. There was 4 tents taking pictures of bikes and vehicles going down the road at various locations.
Pretty sure my towing skills equal master class after that drive. My 2015 Ram 1500 Crew Cab 5.7 hemi pulled up and down that road like a champ. My wife and I started making jokes at every gas station with tiny parking lots we stopped at after that saying, "This ain't nothing, we got this."
