Rentals on Maui?

I'm looking for a place to rent ADV bikes on Maui. All I can find is Harleys. I'm mostly going to be riding on the road unless someone has some cool trails they can show me. It'd be great if I could find maybe a GS to rent but I'm open to anything.

If you own a bike and are looking to make some cash by renting it out I'm open to that too.

I'll be there July 30th to June 8th.

Maui bound as well

Like the two guys above, I'll also be in Maui but at the end of June/start of July.

I see that Maui Dual Sport rentals is closed and as well can't see anything other than Harley rentals.

If anyone has some advice, I'd be interested. Looking for a ride for a day or two.

Thanks,

Cord

Aloha Inmates. On my second weeks holidays here in Maui. I checked every rental place on the Island and except for a Ninja 250, it's either Harley's or scooters, that's it! One place said it is way too expensive to insure dual-sports. I also asked about Wee-Stroms but not enough people ask about them. I did see one cool bike though, a Honda Pacific Coast.

Thanks for the info, Howie. I won't put a whole bunch of time into finding a ride when I'm there I guess.

I bet you could have a pretty fun time riding a Ninja 250 to the top of Haleakala and back. Time yourself! Do it a few times...

Shipping a bike to Hawai'i

So, it's looking like I may have a job on Kaua'i soon. I have a BMW F650GS that I'd like to send over from the Seattle (Woodinville) area.

For those of who who have shipped bikes over, how did you do it and how much did it cost? Especially those of you from the Pacific Northwet.

Mahalo nui loa!

The cheapest shipping is probably through Pasha. But you have to get the bike to San Diego. They charge $554 to Hilo on the Big Island if you have it strapped to a skid. Add $100 if they have to strap it to a skid of theirs. I haven't found any decent way to ship just a motorcycle from your area to Hawaii. If you are renting, say, a 20 foot container, maybe you could strap it into that.

Thanks Mommer. Called today, left a message. Looking at the Buell 900. I'll PM ya for a meet and beer or something. Love to have a peep along for the loop as I haven't done it before. Am looking forward to the adventure though. Funny I've been to Maui a dozen times and never rented a bike. This is going to be a blast. Hope to see ya soon. John

Mahalos!

Da wife is staying behind for a while, so would probably hold off on a container for a while. I plan to travel lightly, renting a furnished place for at least the first year. So the bike would be the only thing I need shipped anytime soon.

Thanks. I'll ask around the area and see what else I can find out.

We've shipped a lot of bikes through DHX (Dependable Hawaiian Express). I've also used ABF but they have a terminal in Honolulu. Not sure about Kauai but they can forward I'm sure.
