I Came Back from Copperhead Road

Video Posted on Updated on

This is THE Copperhead Road (Copperhead Hollow Road, Johnson County, TN) from the song by Steve Earle, “Copperhead Road” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvaEJzoaYZk

I was here back in May of 2017 and wanted to ride the famous road. It was not actually all that exciting. It was flat, not too curvy, potholed and loose gravel all over the pavement. But there was one reason I wanted, had, to ride it:
So I could say “I came back from Copperhead Road!”

Actually, I wanted to hit the Watuga Winery, which is at the west end of Copperhead road, and with it within 100 yards, I just had to ride it.

As I do not own the rights to the song, I cannot include it in this video. So, I just included some free country song from YouTube’s library. Upsetting, I know.

So, as we are under a blanket of white crap, I decided to drive and see just how the roads are doing. Surprising (not really) enough, the roads were fairly good, outside my own neighborhood. Yes, this video is a little long, so watch/skip what you want. Just sharing thoughts as I am itching to ride… Thought waiting through this last year was bad, it is infinitely worse after having had a riding year like last one.

My Ride on the Tail of the Dragon

In October of this year, I was able to ride on US129, Tail of the Dragon, 3 times.  It is probably one of the most technical roads in the eastern US for motorcycles and cars.  Here is my ride.  Make sure to hit the HD button.
