New US 129 Harley-Davidson at the Dragon

I paid a visit to the Punkin Center Motorcycle Resort at the Tennessee end of the Dragon yesterday (trying to get the last few miles out of my tire before the new one goes on) and made a stop at the new Harley-Davidson Dragon Store to see what they have to offer. It’s a satellite store for Smoky Mountain Harely-Davidson in Maryville, Tennessee.

Located right on the lake on US 129, a.k.a. "The Dragon", the location couldn't be better to serve all the Harley riders who stream by.

I’ve passed by many times wondering what was inside. It’s not a full dealership with bikes nor service facilities. It’s primarily a merchandise store with Harley brand clothing and accessories.

The unique sign emphasizes you're about to "enter the Dragon"

There’s a nice porch to kick back and take a break, or this time of year, a good place to cool off in the A.C. or get out of the afternoon rain showers.

The fresh new store is as nice inside as it appears from the road.

In addition to clothing and accessories, there is also a selection of oils, lubes, and thankfully, batteries to help keep you on your travels.

For you non-Harely riders there’s another good reason to stop – gas. It’s strictly pay at the pump, and the prices were some of the best I saw in the area. I paid 20 cents more per gallon on the ride out.

Some of the best prices on gas are another good reason to stop.

Looks like there’s another thing to add to my maps of the area and one more place to see and visit on your motorcycle vacation.

  2. Hi I was in your store last week trying on shirts and I think I left a pink hat there. It says Mayan Riviara on it. If by chance you found it and would be kind enough to mail it to me I would gladly pay for shipping. Thank you so much.

  3. Just got a road king police bike from the main store in maryville, the dragon 129 harley store was my 2nd stop (deals gap was the 1st), you should show the statue of “stitch”on your web site it blew us away.

  4. The “Dragon” is one great ride; and Deal’s Gap is an interesting stop. It compares favorably, with a good ole Southern flair, to some of the kinky rods here in California. The scenery is magnificent.
