Dragons tail replaced by Interstate

Thats right...
Ladies and gentleman we as motorcycle riders should act on this... There is a proposed I-3 that is going to run from Savanah Georgia to Knoxville Tennessee... This is going to cut right through the Great Smokey Mountain National Park... They are also planning on getting rid of Hwy 129 and put the Interstate right through the center of the Dragons tail... I am not usually a politcal person unless your messing with my right to bear arms or my right to good roads to ride on... This time they are planning on destroying one of the best motorcycle roads in the US... by far the best on the eastcoast... I know some of you don't even know what I am talking about but for those who do... I know I love that road and don't want it destroyed for an Interstate... just to fix Atlanta's traffic problems...

Thanks for listening...

I was just thinking to myself, this will never happen because of two reasons. Environmentalistic reasons, they would be really hard pressed to shove something right through a heavily wooded region with many untouched peaks and rivers. Second would be the amount of money required for this project, building a road is one thing, building an interstate that straightens out some of those bends, $$$$$$$. Honestly I don't see it happening, but then again, more worthless things have happened.

I got this link of www.hondasportbike.net
I don't know how true this whole interstate thing is but the people at tailofthedragon.com are a little worried.

I am signature number 947.

I know internet petitions don't usually mean squat but it can't hurt can it?
