"Cmon, haul ass!!! You can do it! Itll be fine..."
Especially for people that come from afar to ride the dragon. Cmon! You gonna go home and tell your friends you rode the dragon at 30 mph? I doubt it.
So I guess its the riders decision. The truckers are always on the road looking for shortcuts. They just wanna get home. I dont agree with big trucks on those roads however bikers shouldnt be thinking they are rossi there either.
I guess thats why there is a tree of shame on the dragon.
Riders come from all over the WORLD to ride the dragon.
A road created for all vehicles, not just us.
We exceed posted speed limits, mostly with bikes that are owned by banks, not us... ride in a manner that often voids our health and vehicle insurance, we loiter and possibly obstruct..
There's plenty of accidents and injuries for cars, trucks, campers, RV's motorcycles, pedal bicycles, ect...
I think the state of NC cuts us alot of slack actually.
We'er lucky there's no Tree of Shame for semis......lol.......
It'd be awesome if the Dragon was just for us, but that'll never happen.
