    I notice Hawaii is not included in any of the regional forums...SInce so many Alaskans seem to venture to HI I'm wondering if anyone can help me get my mid-winter riding fix on the Big Island? Any suggestions of where I can rent a dual sport bike in or around the Kona area? My goggling shows me that it 99% harley's for rent and 1% scooters. Any ride suggestions would be good too...

    Yep, that's about it. I did some digging around looking for a DS ride for my trip there a couple weeks ago...no dice. Further investigation upon arrival confirmed what we've both found (HDs and scooters).

    Rent a Ruckus and pretend! :lol3

    Every rental car and every rental bike is a dual sport.

    They're all high performance, too.

    :lol3

    Have a good time!

    The little 4 door POS we had down there did wonderful burn-outs when you dropped it into Drive at 3k rpm.:lol3

    :clap Awesome! Thanks Mark. I'm going to contact these guys and see what I can set up. I'll take a thumper over a hog any day! And guess I won't need that extra insurance coverage on the rental car. Now I just need to figure out how I'm going to strap that baby seat on the back of a KLR.
