Drove it this weekend and it was stunning!
I took my 91 Z28 1LE and I'm glad I think my IROC'* reg brakes would not of kept up and 700R4 would of freaked. The 91 has a T-5.
Of course the sport bikes just flew through there, but in the 2 hrs I hung out and ran it twice, 3 people laid their bikes down, only 1 was slighly hurt.
Also if you want even more curves, check out NC RT64 east of 74
map-http://tailofthedragon.com/maps/tourmap.gif I was topping out 30 in the curves, 3rd gear., that was pushing it. I just wish I had some cool roads that where closer.
Cool thing is there are prof photo togs along the way and you can buy a pic of you running it, I just have to decide.

I also hit the Cherohala Skyway. It tops out at about 5800', you can see the high part road on the far mountain
Of couse no trip to that part of NC would be complete without a drive through the clouds on the Blueridge Parkway. ( I happened to have Led Zep'* Misty Mountain Hop on during this part)
I hope to take a bunch of people from my local 3rdgen board there next spring, if they can keep up. Don't drive I-40 if you like to run a strick speed limit. I tried to keep it reasonable do to be arrest me red, but I was getting fliped off by old ladys so- I had to just go MUCH faster.
