Glad you were able to check that one off of the bucket list. I did it last year, and at the last minute, had the unexpected pleasure of having my wife on the back for the ride. Otherwise, I wouldn't have had anyone to share it with, because I was solo. It definitely challenges your skills,,,, and like you, I didn't have anything to add to the tree of shame. I'll definitely ride it again sometime, but am also wanting to go back down and ride some of the more scenic and lest "twisty" routes as well.
