A guy named Jon Stockton rents dual sport bikes on Maui. He seems like a pretty nice guy. Here's his website.

I lived on Oahu for two years going to school. Great place to live, but expensive and it's easy to get "island fever" and wish it took more than a few hours to get to the other side of the island.

Aloha

I grew up in Manoa Valley, moved to North Central Washington about 25 years ago. I still go see the folks every February or so when the weather here sucks long enough.
Oahu's got some nice day rides. I used to ride DS bikes all around the island before the last bit of bad road on Kaena Point collapsed. You used to be able to ride in the hills behind Mililani Town, but they built a prison in my favorite spot.

I'm starting to plan for a trip early next year to Oahu to see my daughter and son-inlaw (he's stationed over there), so far all we are finding are big ass fancy high-rises's.
I don't want a run down dump, just a nice place to relax for the evening and crash as during the day I just plan on driving (riding?) around the Island and spending as much time with my daughter as possible.
On the map the north shore area looks pretty cool (we like to find the "out the way" areas) but I've been told to stay away from the north shore at night caues they don't take to kindly to "howlies".

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Tom

RR, dont know where you got your info, but I lived on Oahu for 4 years. North shore is a great place. I spent many a night in Hale Ewa and never had any problems from the locals. Did allot of diving for bugs around shark's cove. Had numerous bon fires on Mokulea Shores, not to mention many crazy nights at the sugar mill bar. Besides, I know of plenty of "Howlies" that live up there. Just my 2 cents. Everyone has their own immpressions. You give, you get.

Although I live in the mainland, I grew up in Mililani town on O'ahu, way back before the High School was built we used to go ride up by there (I think it was called the pits) , down through Kipapa Gulch and up to where Costco, Kaiser and all the Gentry development is today - back then it was all empty pinapple/sugar cane fields. I remember riding an XR75 on the dirt straights trying to keep up with the cars on Kam highway. You used to be able to ride up to the mountains....those were the days. Today my brother and his family pretty much go riding at the track out by Kahuku....

Thanks for the info.........................I got my (mis)infomation from some "Howlies" but since have been told that the only thing to watch out for around there is the waves.


NCW Mike, Thanks for the PM, I will get back to you when I have more time.


mrt10x, so if I see any GS riders while I'm there on the Island I can give them the ADV salute?
My son inlaw is stationed at Scofield, so I'm sure I'll be spending some time there.

I loved your old dirt bike riding story from the Island

I have a few myself, from places where it used to be OK to ride (in the mainland).

I'm working on move to Maui. Been there for job interview in October. Other job interview (over phone) 2 weeks ago. I hope to move there this winter. If (who knows in this economy) I move I'll bring my Gran Canyon and Husky TE510. Any ADV riders on Maui?

RR,
If you are former military or Fed Gov employee, the Hale Koa in Waikiki is a good deal. You might try a local travel agent for package deals; they book seats in bulk and can offer good prices.

You won't have much competition with this economy.
