Video of the Dragon

For anyone interested, here is a video of the Tail of the Dragon (US 129) in TN. The video is going both ways. There was a lot of salt on the road (you will see where I straighten out and cross the lane to avoid the spill. The video is 30MB.

Camera mount for the wheel is home made, can post pics if interested. I am also interested in other people's ideas for mounts (real or envisioned). This is a K1200RS.

Thanks for the input. I love editing and unfortunately I was up there solo so the riding that I was videoing was difficult to do some of the stuff I wanted to. I am planning on reworking this a bit too.

Deals Gap is a great area, not just the Dragon, but the whole area, beautiful, fun sweeping roads, near Pigeon Forge so the women can enjoy. I will say that I was there three weeks ago and it was great, the weather was nice, except for the salt, the roads were great. By going this time of year, there were less people out, no RV's to get stuck behind, cheaper to stay etc... I reccomend it to all!

The music is Buckcherry.

For those with ideas but no means to edit, I am interested in doing some other videos, would be cool to have a video of short clips of nothing but BMW's in their "element" whatever type of bike anyone has. I have the bandwidth and am willing to share with all. Just let me know.

I am watching the video and it is so choppy freeze frame ect. Is there something wrong with my computer? Most motorcycle video's seem to look this way. Are they supposed to look like this?

Sorry about that, it is a large file. You can also right click the link and click save target as and it can download to your system, the rate that it plays is dependant on your connection speed.

I will try to make a smaller version and post in here again.
