    I still prefer the Ohio Dragon. The speed limit is 55 and there aren't any 70-foot trucks or 100-foot drop-offs.
    Drive Responsibly.

    Tail of the Dragon is now 35 MPH with no tractor trailers - they could not do much about the drop offs with that many twisty's you could not 55MPH without killing yourself anyway............

    Dang! If I were out there I'd be running thar all the time. Looks like a fun drive-although with 600 cars it could get a bit crowded. Please post video if possible.

    Mitchell,
    Glad you won. It was good to put a face on the Travel'n Man. As you stated, what a good time had by all. Sad to say that David's GT-R had to go to Atlanta for repairs but still had a good time. Hope to see you there next year keep in touch and ride safe.
    Mike

    I have a ton of pictures from Zdayz-I'll round the S30s up and post them to a new album in my gallery over the next few days-those of you who haven't been to a Zdayz, better hurry up, I reserved my room for next year while I was there! Bryan and his crew have made it a terrific event, and next year will only be better! It is a great Z experience with an unbeatable driving experience!
    Will
    A Z is beautiful from any angle, I just happen to prefer to view from the drivers' seat!
