Lois and I took a short trip to the NC mountains. Stayed at Ironhorse during the Motorcycles of Charlotte Rally, and went out on a few roads we know well. Among them was the NC 129, also called the Tail Of The Dragon. With 318 corners in an 11 mile stretch, it definitely gives you a lot of fun and exciting riding. Lois on her Can Am Spyder RT, and myself on the BMW S1000XR. Haven’t had this bike too long, and took it on the first trip to the mountains. It didn’t disappoint. Phenomenal performance bike, with insane power, agility and technology. Love it.
