Dual sport rental in Hawaii?

Hey all,
On vacation in Hawaii and was wondering if someone can point me towards a dual sport dealer on the Big Island? Thought there was one but I can't find any info.

I was thinking of getting one next time we go over there, but the fact that you can rent a car for a week for less than renting a bike for a day changed my mind.

Thumb Maui Moto Adventures

My wife and I rented two KLR's from Maui Moto Adventures while on Maui for Thanksgiving and had a great experience. We had the bikes for a day and a half and made the loop around both ends of the island. The bikes were in great shape and came with all the gear.

I plan to use them again on my next visit. Check them out if your looking for a different view of of the island.

We are heading that way for a couple of weeks this spring and bikes for a few days would be fun.

Thanks for the tip on the big island bike rentals, going there right after the 1st of the new year to celebrate my 50th with my wife. She's thrilled that i actually found a dual sport to rent to go chase the lava with! We will see how it goes.

I went to Oahu in 2012 for my moms 50th birthday. What a great time. Too bad I didn't have my endorsement then. Im still pissed at myself for not getting it before the trip. I got it one month after getting back.

You will have a fantastic time on the big island.

Rented a bike in Honolulu

I rented a Yamaha 250 in Honolulu, long story short, I was pretty disappointed. The island is only 2 miles wide, all pavement, nothing "fun" just lots of 40 mph heavey traffic. I really did not enjoy it and would not recommend it in Honolulu.
At home I am used to getting on the bike and riding at least 40 miles flat out. Honolulu, not such much.

Seriously? I grew up on Oahu and can tell you that it is more than two miles wide, and that there is a lot of good riding.

I found some great riding in Honolulu, not to mention all of the great riding on the rest of the island. This was my wife's first time on two wheels and we came home and got her a motorcycle.

Yeah a bike would be fun. I spent a week there last Nov. Small car / jeep rentals at the airport is it as far as I know. Very few people visit in comparison so not much call for it. There's only roughly 7500 people on the entire island. And very little in the way of dual sport tiding. The entire west end of the island is basically off limits except for the main highway. All private ranch land and closed up tight. The east end is for hiking. Only one road. No dirt to speak of. I don't think there was even a moped rental to be found. I didn't see any bikes that I can remember.
