The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
Opened in 2002, shortly before the Outer Banks’ first annual Bike Week, the Nags Head Harley-Davidson sells just about everything a hog rider would want except the motorcycle. The shop gives a nod to local outlaws with two life-sized pirate mannequins --- one an alluring woman buccaneer, of course --- who greet customers as they enter. The store is decorated with big Harley banners and decorative signs that are for sale, and is filled with a great collection of Harley T-shirts for men, women and children. In addition to a selection of bike gear, there’s key rings, collectible stuffed toys, baby items, hats, sandals, jewelry, hoodies and sunglasses. And the shop owner hasn’t forgot the store’s resort location: There’s also Harley golf balls and hats and beach towels in stock.
