Why not still go, I mean the dragon is a pain in the ass unless you get there mid week anyway. If you go down there are SO many other GREAT roads to ride. I would not let the fact that 129 MIGHT be closed keep me from a trip planned at the gap. JMO

It's possible. I might just use that money to splurge on a helmet and stay around here impressing high school girls
