I was in the Smokies last week. The Dragon, as usual, on Saturday was covered with police.
The speed limit is 30 (which is ridiculously slow). But to make it worse, I caught up to a Sheriff doing 20-29 which is just painful. I rode him pretty hard, and he was kind enough to pull over and let me pass...and then I was gone.
Best thing is my buddy was taping. Around 6 mins in you see me following the Sheriff, and about 7:50 he takes the turnout.
Now that's how you pass a cop on the Dragon!
