I was very surprised on how good it was to ride the strom on the hard sand 2up.

Thought it was from Rainbow...but that entry can vary greatly, too.
Seen it all chopped up by bad weather and hordes of 4WDs.
It sure is good going once on the firm stuff....I LOVE IT.

THere's something special to running along the surf, gauging the firmness of the sand by colour and texture, trying to out-guess the waves and how far up they'll go, constantly checking for rocks sticking out of the sand or the broken edges of little streams cutting through the beach....

Yep, have to agree, reckon it made it a bit more special doing it with my son on the back. Mind you, reckon with the 2 of us heavy weights a bit of gear and the bike, we were close to weighing in at the half a tonne mark, no wonder we were getting some funny looks.
Made riding the DRZ up there seem so easy too.
Cheers brian

Just saw this thread and felt obliged to put this picture up. Its not the worlds most dramatic photo, but the whole setting was just so peaceful. It is about 10 kilometres west of Dorrigo and my understanding that two years prior it would have been still in drought. Taken Feb 2012.
