    ...Yow that smarts! You should get an xray bra'. Broken clavical sucks, I know. Maybe not that be it as you can raise your arm. I broke mine and the day was over. Couldn't raise my arm at all.
    Much healing to you Prince. Loving yas vids! :norton

    Thank you sire : ) Today's analysis of the body feels pretty decent. Was able to put my pants on with the right side! I need to find some good body armor : )

    Dude, that was probably the most entertaining video I've watched on here. Didn't know you had riding like that in Maui. Thanks for taking us along on your ride. I think I even have a little sympathetic shoulder soreness.

    I'm guessing you've added a pipe and programmer to your WR? Sure kicks ass over mine. Nice to see it keep up with the EXC...kinda.

    heal up quickly homeboy. I was just in Maui two weeks ago and would have loved to ridden some trails....though I would have had to rent/borrow a bike. Trails look like a blast.

    Thanks for the sympathetic shoulder lovin'.. whew, that hurt.. Still does 6 days later but seems to be healing up nicely ( I can finally put my pants on with two arms)

    Maui's got tons of trails, I'll show more once I heal : )

    Here's a pretty comprehensive walk around my bike to-date : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LA-jWCPiPg : )

    I was trying hard to keep up with Davin on the 530exc but damn, when he gives it throttle it just goes bye bye... Still, I stayed relatively close for 80% of the trail..

    Thanks for watching!

    It's 'wai heh ay' no? I know the written use of the 'okina is pretty new and rarely used on road signage which makes life more difficult. My hawai'ian is piss poor, I just heard it pronounced that way talking with na kapuna.

    Waihe'e is a beautiful walk! Theres also some good swimming along there, I hadn't seen bikes on the trail but it makes sense! Some awesome tracks up there.

    I use the common phonetic rep for most Hawaiian words ie: Hawaii ( Ha wuh eee ) vs ( Ha vuh ee ) which is the actual pronunciation.. Just trying to get peeps away from pronouncing Waihee as ( Why he ) ya know? : )

    Awesome Kalani, Hope the shoulder heals quick. I feel your pain, I bashed my knee in 3 weeks ago and its still not 100%. Have been following the vids for a while and just subscribed.

    I don't usually watch the video links on here, but yours was very entertaining. Makes me want to get another WR250R.

    Agree completely with Razr. Was all of the storyline line as you were riding or did you edit some of that in afterwards? Great video and ride.
    Heal fast!
