This is from another forum, so I thought I'd give everyone a headup incase your thinking about heading that way this summer:

posted by a State Trooper:

"Hey, just to give you a heads up for next season----we have a new captain in the knoxville district which covers blount county------ he has already told us that we will put a stop to the "race track driving" up on the dragon this year------so far what they have said is that the speed limit is 30mph and "ANYONE" caught going 50mph and up will be charged with reckless driving and will be jailed and their bike/car will be impounded--- --I am telling you this because i am trying to put the word out to everyone i know----or to people who know people that go up there-----I don't want to have to take people to jail for this---however I have bills to pay and I kind of like having a job---so never the less I have to do what i am told to do-----so the way i see it is that if killboy.com knows and you know and dealsgap.com knows and whoever else can find out can pass this along---it will benefit everybody--- -----feel free to copy and past this and let everyone know-------if you get caught up there it is only your fault because i am trying to pass the word along for everybody's sake-----we are not just going to come up from the bottom like in years past---they are gonna have us go through cherohala skwy in north carolina and come from the top down to the bottom----so no more free rides on your way back to the state line----they are gonna bring unmarked cars with radio's and have unmarked bikes up there----this will be a joint effort with blount county and the THP-----The entire THP motor unit will be brought in 2 people at a time(for a week long assignment) to be paired up with the local car----they plan on busting tail at least 3-4 times right off the bat---then they will sit back and see what takes place-----these orders came from Nashville Headquarters- --we have a complete brand new higher ranking structure from the very tip top spot down----they have said we will work until the problem is solved----just wanted to give you and your friends a heads up.......... SIGNED... .......Trp Cagle with THP assigned to Blount County Division---- (don't come crying to me if you get busted----cause I'm telling you now)"

I guess the Honda Hoot and all the money that it brings to Tenneese will slowly dwindle away.

just to pass this along, my folks live down near knoxville and there are also rumors of shutting down the tail for a day or a whole weekend and make it just for bikes. they say it's just a rumor and guess there is a lot of legal red tape B.S. to get thru.

I will call the article BS purely on the 'author's' terrible grammar and punctuation.
Obviously written by some kid.

I can't see where this is a big problem. If they infact do observe the legal limit,,,BIG DEAL. I can have a ball on the Dragon at 30 mph. I don't see this being a big problem or that after a few days they would want to waste man hours concentrating on such a small stretch of road.
And no I wouldn't agree that the state would be liable if someone was breaking the law and hurt themselves there any more than on any other road.

OK, it looks like I opened up a can-o-worms here. Didn't mean to stir the pot to this level of controversy. I guess that particular road isn't in my schedule anytime in the near future anyway. I have seen so many videos, photos and posts about that place, I feel like I've already rode there...so now I don't have to. There are so many roads I have yet to travel...and so little time. Ride safe! >PD<
