Very doable on street tires. There are some steep sections that you would need to take it easy on.

It's going to be a week or two before I'm able to head that way. The tag is certainly safe from me. Everything I found when looking for the spot was in awe of the scenery around there.

I didn't catch the other guys username or if he's even on here, but nice of you guys to drop in the shop today and meet face to face instead of behind our helmets like a few weeks ago. Hope you guys had a safe ride home.

You could make a great ride out of getting this tag. From where you're at to where it's at is a lot of good riding.

I get it. I'm probably a good bit closer to it than you are, but it's still difficult for me to get out that way. And there are a lot of good taggers in that area.
