There appears to be alot of pavement and not so much dirt. The island is very small and speed limits are lower than the main land. I have narrowed it down to a Yamaha WR250 or Suzuki DR400.

Now I have to decide between knobbie or street tires!

Also, I didn't know what to think when I saw the guy on a stretched Huyabusa (wearing flip flops, shorts, a t-shirt and no helmet) creeping along in the heavy Honolulu traffic. I felt sorry for him. All the pent up horsepower and testosterone going to waste.
i spent 4 weeks in kauai this winter and rented a HD while there, the whole time i wished i had my triumph scrambler .plenty of off road oppertunity and no real highways are ideal for the scrambler, just go up 2 teeth in the back you're set.
