Highway 129, in Eastern TN, running along the Western side the Great Smoky Mountains National Forest is known as "The Dragon's Tail ", or simply "The Dragon" to many. It is America’s #1 motorcycle and sports car road, with 318 curves in 11 miles.
MINI Coopers love this road, and of course, so do I. I have the great pleasure of living less than a 2 hour drive from this road the try to get down there to "shoot the curves" every chance I get. It is always a blast.

Below are albums of some trips I have made to the Dragon's Tail, as well as photo journals about the people who ride this road. I hope these photos can give an you at least a fraction of an idea of the fun of driving this road and the culture surrounding it.
Please check back on occasion, I'll add more as time goes on.
