You should read the sign you were leaning on on the bridge. I had a nasty wreck about a month ago when 2 guys in front of me decided to stop on top of that bridge. Theres not really space for a 3rd guy up there even if he is just trying to go by.
Yeah I've run up on a couple people standing on that bridge myself. You can hear people coming around the bend with plenty of time to pedal off the bridge without them even knowing you were there. It's usually the tourists that just stand there while you run up into them.
I was up Sunday. It was packed but the weather was perfect. I just heard they re-worked Hellion and added a drop this past week.
That's quite the face rash. I'm getting married myself next weekend. I'll see how I look after Sunday. My fiance has forbidden me from getting hurt but sometimes Highland has other plans.
