I recently took a 3K mile road trip for work, and ran down the Tail of the Dragon on my way to ATL. This is an 11-mile stretch of US129Hwy with 318 turns.

For those who know, it was a blast! I highly recommend you make a trip there at least once in your life. I ran the Skyway too, it's just as much fun, but the turns are sweepers.

For those who don't know --> Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap and Cherohala Skyway, Graham Co, NC

I took video of the ride, here are the links...

Don't feel too bad for Nugz, he's got some fairly decent stretches of road to travel.

Camera

Look closely at the killboy pic. You can see the camera inside the car, right beside my head.

I mounted the camera on a 'sticky pod' to the inside of the driver window. Yes, it was a little in the way, but not too bad. This is why the video is canted a bit.

I broke the mount I had planned to use while trying to set it up that day.
