Wait a minute... the beach ride took place on January 28th of 2012 and by the next day it had rusted into total destruction??? That must be some pretty toxic saltwater.

It's pretty bad here. All the radioactive water from the tsunami situation in Japan was stirred up by Hurricane Irene and when combined with the soup from the Deepwater Horizon spill, it basically melted the whole bike.

Can any OBX locals give me the scoop on where I could take my jeep offroad at this time of year? I'm heading down today for a week with my wife and our new jeep (no bike though). I did a little research and it looks like much of the beach driving is off limits from April-Oct.

I'm not a OBX local...but I vacation there often. The Corolla NC northern "end" of Route 12 leads to easy beach access. No permit required. To my knowledge no current access restrictions. Nice area with some shopping and places to stay. Our JK runs fine here...enjoy!

Southern access further down...say Hatteras area...to my recollection requires NPS permits and there are calendar restrictions.

As able...you might plan your route to include a ferry ride on the NC state ferry system...make your visit a loop...to include Hatteras and Ocracoke.

I've been coming to Hatteras on vacation since 1984 and used to do a lot of driving on the beaches but never once saw a motorcycle on them. I quit trying to access the beaches for fishing several years ago due to the stupid restrictions and now fish at the foot accessible ramps and pedestrian only access areas.
In fact, I'm on the sound front this week in Brigands Bay between Frisco and Buxton. Going fishing shortly!;)
