(WMC) -

A group of Harley Davidson riders will attempt to break a world record on one of the most legendary stretches of road in the Southeast United States, the Tail of the Dragon.

The Dragon is an 11 mile stretch of road with 318 curves that shoots from Tennessee into North Carolina. A ride along the Dragon is on the bucket list of every motorcyclist and sports car enthusiast in the continental United States. 

Saturday, a group will attempt to create their own legend along the legendary road. The Shiloh Riders will attempt to set the world record for the largest number of Harley Davidsons to ever ride the Dragon at once. Here's a link to the event page for more information.

The group will leave the Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson Outpost location, US 129 Dragon, and ride to Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort. Riders will pay a $10 registration fee to take part. The Shiloh Riders put on an annual toy drive and this event will help by benefiting the East Tennessee Toy Box.
