Tail of the Dragon is amazing. Worth the trip.

A lot of traffic, though.

Well, not sure if you meant traffic getting there or traffic on the Tail itself. The pictures of oversize semi-trailers are a good laugh. Reminds me of Vermont State Route 107 which has the same issue.

I was specifically thinking of images of semis on the Tail when I said that, to be honest. 

Lots of laid down Harley's, too.

We regularly watch compilations of non-Russian dashcam incidents on YouTube.
Some are just really bad drivers doing really stupid things, some are accidents.
The IGlet has a dashcam and he has submitted a few clips of bad drivers he's witnessed. I might get them for the other vehicles ... but yes, I would definitely do a hide-the-wires thing.

There's other roads in the area too that are a bit less traveled....

Cherohala Skyway comes to mind.... And it's longer.

Have to do a road trip next spring -- maybe check out some place like T-Wall, or Rumbling Bald, work in a side trip on one of these roads...

I saw that too, great to know it was not lost.

 

Id almost kill for a Chrysler turbine coronet.

Speaking of fancy cars with XM radio as standard options... I test drove an M4 last night. It was a previous daily rental from Hertz, and an automatic - I didn't spend enough time in the parking lot familiarizing myself with the transmission, so I was figuring it out while driving down crowded surface streets in Scottsdale Arizona. Lurching along in first gear trying to figure out how to switch from the paddle-shift to auto mode... I also forgot about the different modes, so my experiments with handling and acceleration were kind of pointless - as I think I did it all in comfort mode. Compared to the brand new M4 Competition coupe I drove the evening before - it felt like a Buick or Chrysler. It was probably far more impressive than that - but I think test driving the Competition Coup 1st was a mistake. I did accelerate from 0 to just under 100 getting on the highway - and I'm not sure if it was something on the highway, something with the tires, or something with the suspension or the front axle - but there was a weird vibration coming from the left front end.  


Yeah... What I really want is a powerful convertible with a manual gearbox and 4 seats without a bunch of technology bells and whistles. I miss when BMW had 3 lines, and maybe two M series cars. Nobody seems to have the car I *want*. I want the 2021 M4 in a competition pro spec with a convertible top and a manual 6 speed transmission. I told my wife we should just get a M5 and I'll just keep my Z3 for top down driving.

Yeah, but I'm not a wrench turner - and also, something my wife can drive around town. BMW knows their demographic.
