I created a Facebook group for all of us local dual sport/dirt bike/adventure riders. It's a private group so only members can see postings. Gasser, I've already added you cuz you're the only one I saw already on FB. Anybody that wants to join either send an add request through FB or msg me your email and I'll add ya. I thought this might be a good way to stay connected and meet new riders, post new rides, get togethers and anything else. Spread the word!

group is called Big Island Dual Sport Riders

Maybe you know my nephew (great nephew??), Sean Borque? He is a bike tech at Bike Works. He just moved to Kona a few weeks ago. He bought a new Sportster at the Kona dealer (an "Iron"), and rode it over to visit my wife and I near Keaau on the wet side of the island.

Haven't met him but I'm pretty sure I've seen that bike cruisin round Kona but there could be more than one in town. I was out riding in your hood recently. I love that area and need to make it out there more often.

Cool2

I am going to be on the Big Island in January and plan to rent a DR from Jason.

I will be attending a medical conference that lets out at noon each day, I'll be looking to explore in the afternoons and the weekend prior. Seeking fellow ADV types to show me some cool locations that maybe tourists don't know about

I know this is way in advance, but I believe in planning This trip has been several years in the works - I tricked my employer into paying for most of it I attended the same conference 3 years ago and had a rental car. The whole time I was driving around I was thinking this would be awesome on 2 wheels. Hence my planning this time...

Not looking for anything hardcore, just some nice paved twisty bits and gravel roads/trails that lead to spectacular views. I do a fair amount of exploring in WA, just don't do anything too technical. Beautiful place to ride for sure.







I am more than willing to buy lunch for my tour guide, maybe you can even show me some cool hole in the wall type places to eat

Thanks, Gary

I don't think you mention where on the Big Island you will be staying. Hilo or Kona side? Depending on the route, these towns can be up to about 125 miles apart (by the southern route).

Staying near Kona, wanting to explore as much of the island as possible.

Miles don't scare me.
