This week, hosts Jeremy Krug and Dave Godar head to the Great Smoky Mountains to experience The Dragon. With 318 curves in 11 miles, it’s the curviest road in the country and the number one road for motorcycles and sports cars. If you like curvy roads with thrills, then you won’t want to miss this exciting byway!
We’ll be talking with M.G. Behrend of Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort in North Carolina (the most famous resort catering to motorcyclists in the country) about what it’s like to experience the thrill of The Dragon. Dave shares Stories from the Road from listeners that have ridden The Dragon, and Jeremy introduces a unique song written about this curvy road. We’ll also talk about the history of the motorcycle, including the 19th century steam-powered motorcycle. Our On the Lighter Side segment takes an exciting swing along The Dragon into Deals Gap.
