You'll have to check with the G- Man, he spent a lot of time creeping up slowly and steadily to the rim of the crater, dropping off riding gear as he approached the edge .

In the meantime (and I think Gasser is on the verge of uploading some images) here's some more I took:

One of da Bruddahs:






And Ed and I comparing my fresh out of the box five year old Sidi Flex Forces with his circa 1970 Hi Point fresh out of his stash of motorcycle stuff carport (photo by Gasser):

Yup the vid is still being elusive...spent $89.00 on a Roxio software that touted all this magic shit it will do but gave me zero DVD copying turds..

It reved my problem thinker so high it striped the threads that hold my frontal lob in the common sense hippocampus slot causing it to fall into the cussing zone making me chew air and spit it out on the key board...lucky I had a towel handy...I didn't wipe it, I tossed the towel in, vociferating "you bastard you digitally won"

The next day I fired up my CBR 1000RR, got pissed off hard on the gas going around the island causing the velocity to shove my frontal lob back into place so I could think straight again, @ a buck 80 is when I remembered my back up put'er might get the job done....viola!

Mpg4 off road DVD shit was burned, but it will only play on an Apple Quick time player, you got?...send the grunt your address to get to me and I'll mail you a DVD copy.

Young brothers is the only way to fly, they're in the book. Pasha stops here and then goes to Maui, so they could be worth a call. Never seen the bike before...

Evening all,
I'll be on Kona for 2 weeks in October as my wife competes in the Ironman. Having time to kill, I'm looking to rent a bike, preferably a dual sport.

Any recommendations?

Shhhhh....

OK, here's the next ride, be ready for a phone call telling you where to be and when, no snooping or scouting of potential routes authorized, no chance to decide between the KLR650 or the plated Pampera, it'll be run what you brung. Be ready for a smoker... Be ready for a beat down... Be ready with a really good excuse....



Don't ask me, I just tag along for the beer!!!

Gasser sez; Could be anywhere under any conditions?~could be kick ass or woosy?~could be survival or fun?~could be your best/worst ride!

Only you, will know....the moment you hit the starter button and your piston starts to go up and down rapidly, heading out to the stealth trails.

Note> it wouldn't hurt to pack toe nail clippers, a cellphone, GPS, 40" bar chain saw, 2 ton come-along, have studded F/R trials tires, an assortment of F/R/side grab and pull handles, 20 layers of tear off's, full North Face camping gear, an extra pack of 1/2" wide zip ties and a back up roll of industrial strength Duct tape, also have your livingwill updated and notarized...don't get me wrong....just say'en.

Please no whiners!!!

Don't give in to a lazy procrastination
Boot up to a Dual-Sport qualification

The Grunt an Idaho Sam would go!

Yo Bent-up

Rent a Dual-Sport up date;

These T&T rental guy's closed up shop...said folks won't pay the price it take$ to rent out a dualsport motorcycle in Hawaii.

I road Mana Rd with them last Sunday...

Tony is an 11 time Baja 1000 an 8 time Barstow to Vegas rider, he was honk'en on his 650 KRL, I was impressed.

Tom (also a top go fast rider) was doing a dry run on his extra heavy loaded to the max gadget embedded KRL getting ready to go from San Diego down into the interior of South America next month...my kind of brothers!

Thanks for the update Gasser, been calling around and learned that business is gone. I have caught sight of quite a few KLRs and while out driving around I see nothing but places my rental agreement won't let me go ;>

Ahh well. Guess I'll just have to learn to surf.
