Funny you mention that. I was all set to do a tag in Landers just for Jeff!. But this bike was a handful with 36psi street tires and huge saddlebags. Not to mention the Spot mounted to the handlebars (not smart, in fact stupid if going offroad). I got a few miles inbound looking for my landmark. I changed my mind, opted to play it safe and pick up parts for my Beta instead.

Then blazed over the hill to get a street tag.

I have a plan in the works for something local and . For sure within the next few weeks.

Trust me Jeff, where I went today, you would be hard pressed to get there with a knobby. It was not more than a few miles from where you live. I really wanted to get that special tag. Common sense prevailed.

And you can all quit playing like I want an easy local tag... be clear.... my complaint is STREET tags on dirt bike are just pointless & lame.

This thread was started to be a DIRT TAG ! I didn't start it... just pointing out the facts bitches.
Remember Jeff this is supposed to be for fun. And fun it was. Street tags on a dirt bike? How would you know if you didn't do it? FWIW, you are not going to get to those planes on a street bike without trashing it.

Ok, the challenge is on.

I really did make an effort to get a challenging tag. The two spots I had in mind were 2 landmarks that needed a real dirt bike to get to. The bike was capable. I decided to use common sense. Riding solo through the sandwashes and rocky/hilly singletrack in the desert on a weekday = not smart. I turned around about halfway in....

Surprisingly, when aired down, those tires worked pretty darn good!

I have something in the works. It will hopefully be a team effort. Looks like I will have to break out the secret weapon for the next tag.



Or my super secret weapon!
