Cape Breton, one of the best things that Canada has contributed to the world!Trunorth said:I second that Deals Gap TT !

Go to Canadian Tire and get ramps! You can find them for around $200 and they're good enough.Trunorth said:Yeah I thought you guys would like this video, the guy who shot it had a nice clear view of the road with his camera. I was hoping to take down a new '06 Gix750 but they arrive in the Brampton(Northwest Toronto )warehouse on March 16th so I'll have to take the 'heavyweight' Gix1. I'll probably get a big van for the trip or possibly an Chevy Avalanche. Anyone recommend some loading ramps, preferably light aluminum with decent width.
Found that at this link:RECORD TIMES:
You will hear a lot about the fastest times on the Dragon. The original timing involved a run from the Overlook to the Crossroads of Time and then back, an 18.6-mile distance. The round trip time was then divided by two. The Deals Gap Riding Society record for an amateur rider was a 22 minute round trip run, which averaged out to 11 minutes (50.7 mph average). The overall record was 18 minutes, or 9 minutes one-way (62 mph average). In order to compete for a new record one had to make the run along with the current record holder.
These records were set back in the early 1990s when there was little traffic on the Dragon. Today, with the road patrolled by sheriff and highway patrol, you will risk severe penalties if you try to beat the records.
