LOL! Ok, if you want, I'll help you drag the Transfat under the gate. Then I would like to watch, not film, just simply observe you get the Transfat up the last 50 feet or so to get that same pic.

I actually was up early and thought about getting up to the Modjeska peak just as the sun rose.......but then....

Think he asked this question because he may be thinking of riding a street bike such as his Honda VTR 1000 to grab the tag, hence asked if a Street bike was able to reach that spot.

Off limits is just being a putts. He know that's a dirt bike with a plate and a street bike can't get the tag.

It would have to depend on the riders ability and how much he loves the underside of his fairing.
Maybe a mod can change the name of this thread to " noobs easy picture tag". Or street bike tag.
And honestly, I've never been to that spot so I don't know what's doable. On what bike.

And besides, gates are.closed, it's off limits.

Oh come on, don't be offensive. I consider myself a pretty good rider but I wouldn't even think about taking my STREET BIKE on anything less than a dirt road. And just because I won't take my motorcycle (which is not pristine in any form) offroading doesn't make me a noob or anyone else.

I'm not being offensive.you are the one questioning the validity of the grinchs' street bike. Any bike with a license plate is considered street legal by law in the grand old state of California. Some riders opinions may vary.

Anything but the VTR, unless its "Mad Max" style. with big knobs too.

Here's a clue pic, its large gravel access only.
