Never rented a bike in Hawaii, but I've been there plenty of times.

The only advice I have is to prepare to be the only guy wearing proper gear. Every time I'm there I shudder at the level of protection most riders I see have - sandals, shorts, tank tops, and MAYBE a skull cap helmet.
If you're an ATGATT rider, don't be lulled into a false sense of security by the locals....

They're called accidents, not on-purposes (as my mum used to say...)

Ride safe,
Matthew.

There is a Hawaii thread in the regional forum. There is some good info there.
