I've been thinking about riding my trike down to the gulf - but I'm hesitant to expose it to sand on the beaches. Any warnings/advice? I went through a sandstorm on I-40 near Grants, NM a couple of years ago and had to really get the trike serviced to get all the sand out. I don't know if I want to do that all over again. Any suggestions would be welcomed. Becky

DON'T forget that the sand is SALTY :!: Not real good for the metal parts that it gets on....

When I go to the coast and ride on the "salty" sand, I then go to a local car wash (lots of them by the coast) and rinse the trike, top and BOTTOM. I also do this with my auto and RV. Like George P. says, the salt will really raise hell with your machine. :-(

In defense of South Alabama....they do have paved roads. The sand on the beaches is too soft to ride on anyway. And yes, they do have car washes there too.

If you are thinking about riding on the beach .. don't..we ride along the ocean on A1A weekly and along the gulf in Florida three or more times a year .no problem,just hose off at the end of ride or day.
