Petition to remove Trucks from US129 (Tail of the Dragon)
Here is a link to a petition being circulated to remove transport trucks access from us 129 aka The Tail of the Dragon. If you have never been on this road, you are surely missiong out on the best road I have seen in North Amreica for all bikes. It is 11 miles filled with 318 curves, in the mountains.
The problem is that it is 1 lane each direction, with little or no shoulder available. Many times truckers driver it and they end up taking both lanes up and usually the shoulder if it is in that area. To further the danger, there is almost always a blind corner within meters/yards of you, and often double blind corners. There have been fatalities here, as well as very serious injuries.
I would like to request help from everyone here, to help rid this road of the dangers of transport trucks. They have aternate routes, its just this is the most direct so they take it to save time. Please fill out the petition if you agree. It doesnt matter where you live in the world, one day you may be riding this fantastic stretch of road.
