Suggestions for firming up sand driveway?

In North Central Florida, out in the country we don't have much in the way of solid driveways. From my house to the road is about a half mile! And it is mostly sand. Sand and motorcycles do not go well together.

So, any cost-effective solutions for firming up my driveway? Really the majority would be drivable but there are 3-4 patches where it is too soft.

A lot of people out here use lime rock, but for a half mile driveway that would get pretty pricey.

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place, I just figured others in the area might have had similar experiences.

Paver sidewalk? A couple bags of quickcrete and a good rain? My parents Luce in a dirt road and have a gravel driveway of 3/4 stone which compacts nicely. Whenever the town re-grates the road is loosens the rocks and its like riding on marbles. Good luck!
