TheBeach Recce.

January the 24th 2009

I decided to check out a beach we had visited a year ago, to see how suitable it would be to run the bike,so me, my wife and a friend rode down to the Konkan on our motorcycles.

The beach was good:Flat,long and realtively hard , allthough our bikes did tend to weave a little on the sand.

The local village poppulation might be another story,for some reason they did not seem too happy to hear or see us.

Anyway the hunt for a suitable place to test continues.

If anybody knows a suitable road around Pune in a 50km radius, I would be grateful for any information.Just remember it has to be a straight, fairly long (1km or >) ,flat road with a good surface and no people, dogs,buildings or traffic.
