US Route 129: The Deal’s Gap “The Dragon’s Tail”

One of the most famous motorcycle roads in the United States is the Deal’s Gap. This road boasts 318 turns in 11 miles of road. The road may just be the most winding road in the country. Though the road is a popular attraction for thousands of riders it is strongly suggested that EXPERIENCED RIDERS ONLY tackle this course. The “Tree of Shame” is a shrine to those who have been bitten by the dragon. The Deal’s Gap motorcycle resort is a popular place for motorists to stay. As an insurance company we can only emphasize that no one other than experienced riders should even attempt this road!
