A group of us went to the Tail of the Dragon this week and thought I would share some pictures and video. I know there is a group going this weekend and wish I could have joined them.

Video camera was the Contour HD helmet cam.

you will have a blast! We only ran it once and I was slow in the curves. We don't have switch backs in southern GA.

Hwy 441 out of Gatlinburg was beautiful, it's about 30 miles next to a creek and through the mountains.

Also we took Hwy 28 leaving the Tail and it was beautiful as well.

I highly recommend both of these if you have time

Looks like you guys had a great time.....except waiting on openings to pass all the guys that were rolling about as fast as a pow-pow power wheel!

Those were the guys I was with. I was just hanging with them and then realized the lead guy I was with was out of sight (only 2 guys in front of me instead of 3). So I decided to run at a m109r pace and move out. I caught the lead guy right at the end the Tail.

It's hard to leave a m109r!

Great pics and video. The VA/NC/GA Riders rented cabins in Gatlinburg last weekend so I know the good times you guys probably had. Thanx for sharing . . .

I've been happy with mine. I just ordered the water proof case that is good down to 30 feet under water. I've got plans to test the video on my jet skis and soon when we go scuba diving. I'll let you know how it does.

Definetly let me know how it does with the diving adventure, I've thought about getting it for Diving as well!! I have leaned some towards the Go Pro though because it comes with a waterproof case and It is rated to a depth of 180' but I like the sleekness of the Contour.
