what? cant get no bites? this subject too tired.. this is jus another bucket list ride. many find better rides in the area with less hassles. I have rode this 3x and tho its challenging, I wouldnt go out of my way to ride it agin. too many issues friday-monday.

local folks, business, cops would do well if they closed that road a weekend a month and sanctioned, sponsored speed runs. all those wannabee racers in their leather colored zip suites could pony up a hefty fee and run this at their limit.
I bet folks would pay good money to come and watch all the crashes. maybe post some Utoob footage. Vendors could peddle snax n beer and TeeShirts.
maybe a (small) portion of the proceeds could go for Win-Place-Show prize money for the fastest runs Up n Back. even a prize for the best wreck? as there are likely to be a lot of em.
Triage units could be placed at strategic points and Halo rescue could be redy for the call(s). this is just a win/win bizness opportunity ever which way.

**YAWN** hum...........what......the dragon.......? Oh yeah what ponch said.

It needed to be "Officially" done. I say most truckers that get on that road don't know about it, or just greedy. But now I say those zip zap bikes will be even more overconfident about the road and ride even more crazy.
