"Thirty two miles and over three hundred curves, the Back of the Dragon is the premier riding road in the nation! Ideal for sports cars or motorcycles, this road offers the most spectacular views you can find in the Appalachians. Crossing three mountains in its course from Marion, Virginia to Tazewell, Virginia, the Back of the Dragon offers knee dragging curves, switchbacks, limited access and elevation changes that no other motorcycle route can offer." http://www.virginia.org/Listings/OutdoorsAndSports/BackoftheDragon/

 

Virginia Highway 16 has lots of curves between Marion and Tazewell, VA.
