deals gap run

Well myself and four others rode to deals gap. WOW what a ride if any of you like twisties go to Deals Gap and ride the dragon... We also rode the Cherohola Skyway, the curves and the sceanic views are amazing. On the way back we decided to ride the devils triangle. This ride is like riding spagetti in a bowl. The curves sharper and the switchbacks are unreal a grand total of 576 curves on that road. If you havr rode the dragon and not the devils triangle the skill level is alot higher. Altogether we rode over 850 miles in two days with numb rearends the sceanery was worth all of it and the friends to ride it with priceless...

My friends and I have done the Dragon a couple times now, but never the Devils triangle. You say the skill level for the triangle is much higher!!! That makes me want to go there even more! Gotta make that next on the trip list. Cool bike.

STAY OFF MY ROAD---RIDE THE DRAGON...lol... Hey just kiddin, but let me introduce you to another lil ride off the triangle, but make sure you feel up to some hair pins with some serious penalties for screw ups...
If you get on the devil's triangle at the Petros end go till you pass the power line X-ing or Braytown and on thru Rosedale and Charlies camp and cross the river on 116, (you are almost to Stainville) then hang a left on that gravel road, it's only gravel for 3 mi. then turn right on the black top there at Shea and on over the mountain to Caryville...
PS- Of course coming the other way turn right on the gravel Rd. at the river x-ing...
Don't take any newbies on this one... Check it out on the map...

That will add a bit of spice and a ride very few have been on...
Not knockin the Trangle as I love, especially the 1st 3 mi. out of Brushy Mtn. prison...

Thanks much for the post and the ride report!!!...

Any more pix of your trip there?

Isn't that a Mustang seat on your bike? Do you have "numb butt" problems on the bike, even with that seat?

Glad you had a safe trip home.....

I have a question.. and i know this is an opinion thing but...I had a buddy talking about The dragon the other day and I've looked at the map, but what's the fun in that many tight curves with no speed?? Don't get me wrong, i love scenery as much as the next guy, but I like wide, sweeping curves that you can tool along at 50-60. My Arkansas home has plenty of big vistas like that.

Well I guess you could just pass Yellow Wolf on his big clumsy Goldwing and go on...lol...

Jokes aside, it's just a very popular ride that a lot claim as braggin rites...
Personally I think it has got too crowded, but in the day that it wasn't it was a whale of a ride... I actually like the Cherohala Skyway, Moonshiner 28, and the devil's triangle better as they are not as popular or over crowded... And like you I have some very good twisties here near home that I love ridin. ...JMO...
