I guess that seeing as it has been almost 20 years I would have to be surprised if he is still there.

I am now settled here on the island. Have the WR set up with a skid plate and bark busters. If anyone wants to go for a spin let me know.

This weekend I plan on going up north and poking around some more.

Look up Tantalus and Round Top drives in Honolulu.

Also, if you have a mil ID card, Kolekole rd which runs from teh west shore over teh mountian to Wheeler AAF. Be advised following the speed limit is a very good idea on this rd.

Hate to say it but you need more than that Mil ID Navy requires you to have a DoD sticker attached to the vehicle, this went into effect Feb 09 (one of my folks drives that route every day.

glad your settled in now, for starters head out towards Dillingham to the end of the pavement you can get the feel for your bike out there then when your up to it head for the Kahuku riding area by Sunset I tried this on my KLR awhile back and about killed myself in there tight and twisty.

KevinMTB may get in contact with you he rides a Husky 610.

It has actually been in effect long before that (may have been overlooked for a while) as it was needed when I was there is about 20 years ago and was needed at my previous posting when I got my first road bike in 85.

I figured that if the Bald Kirk had the ID he would most likely have the bike registered on base and as such would have the stickers.

Can you still go downtown and get an access pass for the Peacock Flats area which is accessed via the satalite station at the northern tip of the west shore? If so there were some nice trails up there, but I would not go alone.
