Motorcycles on the OBX

My husband and I have small motorcycles and wonder A> if the winds are an issue with riding safely B> if traffic poses a high risk for motorcyclists. Personally we prefer slower speeds to fast highway driving so MPH isn't our issue.

We live on Cape Cod and are accustomed to our summer influx but from what I hear it pales in comparison to your sumers.

1. Re: Motorcycles on the OBX

During the peak season traffic is heavy around the Nags Head/Kill Devil Hills/ Kitty Hawk area. Hwy 158 is the main thoroughfare and is 4 lanes across. There is Hwy 12 which runs along the beach which is only 2 lanes. Speed limit on this road is 35 mph if I'm not mistaken. If you are going further south on the OBX (buxton, rodanthe, hatteras), traffic becomes less of an issue. Wind should not pose much of an issue.
