A couple of times I have either hit loose sand at medium speed or from a standing start and found my Wee to be a little squirrely in those situations. Believe me when I say there is a lot of loose sand here in the Coachella Valley of California. Those incidents have put a little fear for me of riding through sand. I had planned on riding some of the local packed sand roads, but am not sure about that now. Any advice would be appreciated. Not stay away from sand.
