Got stuck on beach

Went for a ride today with a local bike club, went around a few back roads and over a few gravel roads to the beach, me being me thought i would see what the versys would do (its not like my old DR 500 haha) got a bit stuck but we had a bit of fun anyway.



The bank in the background is where i attempted my beach ride into the pacific ocean

I think you could have made that look easy with the knobbies on. Looks kind of a cold day but it does look like fun.

Did you air down the tires? That is pretty much a must when on a beach (bike or car).

No I did not let my tyres down but was riding in a group of different bikes and we went down a gravel track to the sea which was okay even for cruisers but i decided to show off as we were only stopping there for 5 mins then we riding back to the main highway, we just push the really fast orange versys backwards off the beach for about 20 feet and then back on solid gravel.
