I have run the Tail on the Suzuki GSX R1000 and in the 500E recently and in the 240Z a few years earlier.
Best time to do the run is in the middle of the week when there are not club runs.
Tennessee State Police has folks who watch the fora just to know when Tail runs are scheduled. And when they are you will find an easy hundred cruisers, motocops, copters, tow trucks for the immediate impounds and rolling roadblocks.
Takes ALL the fun out of a weekend.
But do it at about 10 in the morning after the dew has burned off the road on a week day and it is every bit as good as any track experience you could run.
I believe the best time is still a guy on a Honda Gold Wing.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
