The tree of shame.....

I took some pics of the "tree of shame, and a lot of pain" at Deal's Gap this past weekend..... I case you have never seen this tree, it is a tradition to place a piece of your broken motorcycle on the tree if you are bitten by the Dragon.

Leon TLR, Gummo, Gr8whytehunter and myself are headed to The Gap this weekend. The plan, of course, will be to see the Tree of Shame and avoid contributing to it

Deal's Gap or "The Dragon's Tail" as it's called is an 11 mile road in Tennessee with 318 curves in it. That's right, 318 curves in 11 miles. Uphill and downhill, decreasing radius, hairpin, you name it, it has it. That is what people are crashing their bikes into/off of. I have never been there yet myself, but it's considered to be the ultimate motorcycling area in the States. Very dangerous if you are not used to such extreme rides.
