The KTM 640 IS street legal from the factory! It is not plated dirt bike.
It is however a DIRT capable street bike. I hope this clarifies and ends this discussion.

Now, will someone go get this fucking tag? On whatever bike you ride.

Yikes, not starting a war here . Sold the VTR awhile ago and got a VStrom 1000 (just updated my profile, thanks!). I'm a decent rider, just wondering if I can wrangle to Strom up there. No way I'm gonna drag it under a gate though!

Weather is back to normal onshore flow. Weather man said no red flag warnings. Gates should be open.

No shit, this has to be one of the easier places to find. Isn't that bad only in a couple spots.
Don't make me take the "Legal" Honda 50 mini trail up there. I guarantee the next tag will be impossible to find/fit like a drain pipe or something. Unless of course you have a Honda 50 mini trail and frequent the sewers like me.

The gates on Corona and Ortega sides are open all the way up, MS gate closed don't know why.

The tag is on Majestic Peak looking southeast to Santiago Peak.

It's a jeep trail all the way up. The last 60 yards are the hardest part with big rocks, but still doable on streetbike.

If you get close enough, don't have knobs on the bike I'll let it slide. Knobs on bike you have to be on the top.

Now someone go get this.

Does this count? I got this on Monday but didn't post because I don't know where to get the next Tag. I don't get out of the northern CNF much.
