That evening we had dinner at a local restaurant in Bryson City, NC. I had an Elk burger, first ever. It was very good, but not much different than a hamburger. We chose this destination because Rick wanted to ride the “Tail of the Dragon” the next day. This is a section of highway that is 11 miles long with 318 turns. It is on every motor cyclist’s bucket list. Or least on the risk takers lists. We watched a you tube video and decided we didn’t even want to drive it in a car. Too many other crazy people that could ruin your day.
Friday morning, Rick and Nancy left early for their ride. We drove up to the start of the “tail” and just checked out the bikers. When anyone on a motorcycle arrived after driving though the Tail of the Dragon, I thought we should all clap for them and congratulate them. Obviously, the bikers thought this was no big deal. Nancy was going to wait at the restaurant here while Rick took the ride, so we thought we might see her and talk to Rick after his ride (or take Nancy to the hospital if there had been an accident). We later found out that Rick handled it well and enjoyed the ride with no complications. Way to go, Rick.
