Wow, My buddy who I did the TAT with in 2010 just sent me a link to this. I dumped my WR250R/X in the same place but locked up the front and crashed before I went through the gate. My head stopped just a few inches away from the rock/post thing. They gate was completely unmarked and I didn't realize it was a gate until I was half way down the hill. We ended up tying some brightly colored paper ribbons around it but I'm sure they were gone by the time you went through.
