I did. I fell. Gosh darn 4x4 tracks make it tough. I did make it a few times though. Bring a strong friend if you can.

BTW. I was thinking of going down to OBX with my girlfriend when it get's warmer. Let me know if you would like to go when we do.

Welcome to the asylum, Gregor.

I just noticed your sig-line and went rummaging through my box of old magazine articles that made an impression . . .

Nice work:




I hope you don't mind me scanning these images. I'll edit 'em out of this thread if you wish.

Thanks, I wish the magazine would send those shots back.

I'm headed to Daytona right now to work on a book on Superbike racing. I wish I was riding down there but I've got 7 cases of equipment which is a bit much for the 950.

I was thinking L.I. had some campable beaches but from what I found you have to camp away from the beach. I was hoping to find that idylic setting of riding up and pitching the tent - it sounds like the O.B. is the place. They even allow fires on the beach.

I think you have to camp away from the beach at OBX. Check at Hatteras. You may be able to camp on the beach there.

Gregor,
I live just outside of Norfolk, by Yorktown. If you are on your way down, let me know and I'll be happy to ride the beach past Corolla with you. It is only 2 1/2 hours from my house. BTW, if you are coming down I-95, get off in Wilmington and come down 13/301 on the DELMARVA peninsula to cross the Bay Bridge. It is much better than I-95 thru Baltimore/DC messoplex. And if you want to visit Assateque and the ponies you can do it on the way. I have a spare room and a big garage too, if you need it.

The beach is a blast. Have ridden it two-up with my wife on the GS. You should have seen the looks we got from the 4WD people. Your Adventure fully loaded should not be a problem. Just make sure you know the tide charts. Low tide is a must. It is well worth the trip!

I rode on the beach on my klr650, and it was really great. It felt so good to be on a beach. Did you ride on the soft sandy stuff or did you make it out to the wet hard stuff?

To ride on the soft stuff you need a bit of speed, and the mph on the beach is around 5mph-10mph, and they actually patrol it on atvs.

There are also tons of trails around there that atv groups go on rides.

North Padre Island, just South of Corpus Christi, TX offers 76 miles of National Seashore. You can camp at the foot of the dunes and have a first row view of the Gulf. You can do the first 5 miles after the Malachite Visitor Center on any bike, after that you need a trailie because the sand is softer.

Great birding and a remote, solitary camping experience.
