    Hi all you crazy T-dub nuts.. My wife and I have matching 06 dubs. We are planning on a trip to tenn. in sept. and taking our bikes on the famous tail of the dragon...

    Has anyone here went on the loop??? We plan on camping-waterfall day trips-and riding our dubs. We plan on doing this during the middle of the week in hopes of missing the weekend crazies.. Any imfo. would be helpful. Thanks. OMM.

    Dubs are fun on the Dragon.Just don't go over your limit and watch out for speed traps. ,Their there even on week days.

    Not sure where you're at, but I don't live terribly far from the area, and the roads are pretty similar here. Extremely fun, especially with street tires. If my boots weren't wider than the pegs I could've probably scraped them. I know the passenger ones got a little grinding when I'd forget to put them up.



    In short, the Tdub is very capable. Just watch your speed, as mentioned.

    Google Deal's Gap or Tail of the Dragon. You will find lots of info.



    There are several motorcycle campgrounds in the area, and many more roads to ride than the Dragon.



    Here's Xracer and Mrs. Xracer last summer.

    During the summer I live about 2 hours away if you are interested in meeting up.

    Now that's what I'm talkin' about. (o;.. Will they let us bring our truck and pop-up in the campground??? We are hauling the dubs in the box of my f-150. When the time grows closer I'll re-post that we are coming and try to get together. OMM.

    I don't think you can use your pop up camper right there at deals gap, but there are plenty of other campgrounds in the area. JB probably knows where better than I do, but I know there are plenty around. You might consider the Smoky Mt. Nat. Park.

    The one in the picture is right on the NC end of the Dragon, They have motel rooms only,



    A popular nearby motorcycle campground is the Iron Horse Campground:



    http://ironhorsenc.com/



    There are a number of campgrounds near Robbinsville, NC and some in Tellico Plains, TN, but they are farther away.



    You may be able to reserve a site in the National Park.

    If your running the stock Dub gas tank keep in mind the fuel load. It's easy to get carried away with the riding and then find out too late your low on fuel and in the middle of nowhere. In our case I was riding the super tanker KLR with a transfer hose so no problem.If you do not happen to have a KLR around keep the gas in mind.
