Triumph Dragon Raid 2015 : The Preview

MotoADVR_DragonRaidSatudayLast week I vacationed in one of the best motorcycle destinations in the country. After shooting over 5,000 photos, and checking off two items from my moto bucket list, I’m now beginning the mammoth task of cataloging and writing about this year’s Triumph Dragon Raid in Stecoah, North Carolina.

MotoADVR_DragonNext11MilesSince 2008, the Dayton chapter of the Rider’s Association of Triumph (RAT Pack) host’s an Annual Triumph Rally at the Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge in Stecoah. Held just 25 miles East of Deal’s Gap, it goes without saying that the Tail of the Dragon (US 129) is just one of many great destinations you can visit during the Raid.

At any rate, I thought I’d put up some teaser photos while I attempt to remember all of the details of my 1,650 miles of motorcycle bliss last week.
