If you can't reach all of the secondary navigation by the
keyboard, then you haven't insured keyboard access. Some people
provide keyboard access by making a direct link to a page that is
dedicated to only holding the links for that tab, but you have to
provide the keyboard access somehow, and it has to be not
difficult to discover.
