Oh yes... no problem. In fact it will help. I'm a "bigger" guy and I almost have no issues with the traction control system while abusing TOTD and the Skyway. In this case, lighter isn't better.

Sad, I'll be looking for a road trip, I'm a road trip addict. Just not the Dragon in August.
I understand and suprisingly don't disagree with quite a few of your reasons... but I hope you'll reconsider as you'll be missed.

The Dragon proper doesn't have much change in elevation. It's a fun road to drive, but fairly level. The attraction is the numerous curves, like 318 in 11 miles. You'll be fine. The cruiser bikes will be likely to slow you down, but it's a hoot in any case. If you enjoy curvy road driving, you'll enjoy the Dragon.

And, if you're a social creature, an excellent opportunity to meet other smarties, compare notes, and check out each other's rides.

Not exactly cabrio season as laid out though, unless you're a reptile.

Not as short as some of us and certainly not foreign to most of us. Some have said he or she has an devilish sense of humor yet a funny grin is on his or her face while wrapping. Plus we know it wasn't anyone that attended the Midwest Rally since he or she didn't strike anyone in Amana.

I'm just glad it's the "mad wrapper" and not the "mad rapper."

"I'm Bringing my brother with me to the Dragon. We both weigh 250lbs. Think the Smart can handle the weight in the mountains?"

I've been on the Dragon at least 20 times on the Bike. Bought the Smart in Knoxville and Me and Momma rode via the Dragon back home to Atlanta.. Tis fun in the Smart...

She can't go to OutSMARTtheDragon this year so my brother is flying out..

He's just scared he will have to get out and push...

My daughter is hoping she can get off work to go also in her Smart. Her and my wife were there last year.
She wants to know when the last day to register and pay is? She is trying to get the time off...
