The male had been killed instantly, but the female had lived for three days unable to crawl out from under the motorcycle. This story was told to us by a Tennessee Highway Patrolman who frequently has duty on the Dragon.
We have not be able to confirm it through any official sources or news articles. We often hear variations of this "lost and found" biker, but know of no such case in the past ten years or so. There was a father and son riding two-up who went off the road in The father died instantly and the son was severely injured. He managed to crawl up to the road by the next morning and was rescued. RUMOR: Variation of the above where a motorcycle accident is being investigated and a skeleton from a long past motorcycle accident is discovered.
We hear this one quite often about the Dragon and more recently about the Cherohala Skyway.
Solving for XX
We have not been able to document any such event. Enough has happened in these parts that this very well could be true. There have been deaths on the Dragon long before the white man ever set foot on this continent. And there were many more after the white man came. In the years of Cherokee domination in the area late s-early s there was constant bloodshed. The Civil War brought more death one soldier is buried not far from the roadway.
We heard stories of hangings on the Dragon when the owner of the land found trespassers trying to avoid paying his toll. And there are the many bikers who have lost their lives here. We would not like to spend the night camped at Toll Booth One would think that those we pay to serve and protect would be above telling such lies.
Surely they know it is not true. We have kept an accurate count of the deaths on the Dragon since The average is about 1. Make a Reservation. Rest your head on the Dragon.

We had an awesome visit to this amazing store and resort after riding the Dragon on this hot August day. We saw the Tree of Shame and some new sculptures that have been added to the outside of the building since we were last here.
We bought some Tshirts and emblems and pins to show everyone we rode the 11 mile and curve ride with pride today. We stayed at this motel for one night to be close to the Tail of the Dragon- and there is no better location!!!!
Dragon tail/ Deals Gap to Gatlinburg - Gatlinburg Forum - TripAdvisor
The price was great and the room was nice and clean. There was a plastic cover over the mattress which made the bed a little bit uncomfortable.
We had dinner at the restaurant and the food was very good. However the restaurant closed at 6PM, which made no sense to us. We had to eat early because there is nothing else in the area- the closest town was about miles away!!!!! Also there was no wifi. We thought it was very odd considering we were in a place with no cell service. Regardless, we had a nice time because of the tail of the dragon and got to meet some great people.
This place could be best described as a biker's dream! Wonderful roads to ride in all directions, clean rooms at very very reasonable prices, a great restaurant good food and prices! Very clean! Even if you're not a biker, don't miss a meal watching the groups take off on their Dragon Run! Flights Vacation Rentals Restaurants Things to do.
