I finally got around to filling out the California TR-0031 form (http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/traffops/pe...rms/TR0031.pdf

Not that they are going to turn me down and not take my $90, I noticed this caveat on the website:
"Eligibility for an oversize or overweight permit: To be eligible for an oversize or overweight (or "extralegal") permit, the main criterion is that the load be non-reducible, that is, that it cannot be reduced down and transported in a legal vehicle." (Caltrans Transportation Permits Homepage
Most of us are legal upon deflating our tubes!
