I intend to rent a bike for a day in Kauai when I'm there in a few weeks. The biggest issue I have is that the choices are cruisers or scooters - nothing else. I don't like riding motorcycles with forward controls, but I'll do it for one day.
A few years back there was a place on that island that did tours with DR350's and XR650L's. I would love to have done that, but they weren't able to keep the business going, so shut that one down. An XR650L would perfect to ride around that island on, but I doubt very many other riders share that opinion.
I would love to see a rental place offer a Honda NC700 in any of the variants. Or even a CB500. I would at least like to be able to choose a standard over a cruiser.
