Deal’s Motorcycle Resort marks the start of the Tail of the Dragon for bikers beginning on the North Carolina side; the end for those starting in Tennessee.

The resort is a popular stop for bikers needing fuel, a T-shirt to commemorate their trip or a room for the night. Eighteen miles further on is Robbinsville, North Carolina, a Graham County town with restaurants, shops and more overnight options.

The Tail of the Dragon itself runs for 11 miles and is a stretch of U.S. 129 that contains 318 curves in its short distance through North Carolina and into Tennessee.
