And usually spectators sitting on the rocks at the tightest point (about 1.25 cars wide) ready to comment on your style. IMO, it's a much more difficult drive from the Stowe side than the Jeffersonville side as that puts the really tight spot uphill with no good visibility.
And yes, the 2-wheel crowd can be obnoxious there. Always need to be on guard for some idiot on a crotch rocket dragging a footpeg and going off right across your line.
The Notch is also the scene of hilarity as some tourist fails to heed the warning signs and tries to squeeze an RV between the rocks. That never ends well.
EDIT: According to 511VT.com, the Notch is now open (closes in winter as there's no way to keep it plowed).
