Hank, I did not. I'd be pretty certain that the weight limit on the bridge is lower than the coach weight. I too drove across it in a VW micro-bus back in the early 1970's. More fun to walk though; when a car passes you, the bridge shakes a bit and the wooden planks rattle loudly. Thrilling enough for me!!!
Every spring there is a "rash" of suicides off the bridge. Then it seems to quit until the next spring. Base jumpers have sneaked on to the bridge and jumped; then get arrested at the bottom.
Also has been some sanctioned bungee jumping within the last few years.
I guess the biggest thrill of all, would be the new zip-line they've installed where you actually travel all the way across the gorge.
After the major brush fire of 2013, everything was pretty much restored except the 45 degree (felt like it was completely vertical!!) incline rail tram to the bottom of the gorge.
