Wall of Death rider Lee Donham riding the 318 curves on the Tail of the Dragon at speed with Jayme Gunderson on back. He kept pushing closer and closer, rubbing his front tire on the toe of my left boot (as I'm hanging off the back of a bike backwards) and so we kept going faster as well. What a rider, and what fun we had! 11-miles of fun to be exact! I love the sense of speed you get from the blurred road and foliage on the left. It makes it feel like the road is perfectly smooth, and somewhere we would all like to be.

The Tail of the Dragon is near Deals Gap, TN and this was shot on day 2 of the Big Mountain Run as we rode from Maggie Valley, NC to Relience, TN. May 20, 2010.
