    Only parts for me but they would take a phone order and ship to the Big Isle cheap so it was always a good experience. What are you looking for? Domenico's in Kaneohe does KTMs, Tiki Cycles Betas, and what's his nuts up in Wahiawa has Ossas. Loss of Pfleuger kind of handed the Honda and Yamaha sales to SS.

    Hey Rob,
    Do you have an extra bike that Noah could use? Maybe you guys could take him for a ride? He's currently riding around the world and will be in Hawaii on the Big Island soon. I've been following his thread for a while and hope to do a RTW ride someday. He definetly has some good stories since he started on the US West coast and just finished Japan (East bound).

    I think we got him covered Stan, it'll make of a complete circle for Steve if Noah wants the 530, first time I met him I drug a friend's loaner WR450F (with a rack on the back that I swore Steve was going to unbolt and toss into the A'A) up to Mauna Kea State Park for a R-1 ride. Been friends ever since :freaky, one of these days I really need to get to Florida to ride his neck of the woods. Though a Ho Chi Mihn 90cc blast might be in order first! Robert

    Roberts wife referred to me as his internet date.
    Like minded people usually get along pretty well.
    I think O needs to meet the Mouse someday soon.:evil

    You just had to bring that up! Let it go (Since K doesn't!) that was like five years ago...

    When you coming back? The 200 looks like a wash for '14 but there will be a multiple day trail ride to make up for it sorta like we did this year, Ben has a nicely set up CR250R with a Rekluse and such, you wanna split the price and come over???

    I want to buy a GS, it feels like the market is cornered.

    You know I'd be back on a regular basis if I could swing it!
    As soon as I win the Lottery I'm gonna buy that house just north of Honoli'i....

    Thanks.

    I want to put together a Vietnam ride and invite everyone over. Maybe once the plant is built and in comercial operation I'll have some time. I will defintely communicate it well in advance so you can come.

    We're planning on coming home for Memorial day so we'll plan on coming over for a ride.

    My trip is getting closer, I arrive 4 weeks from today :clap

    Any inmates willing to show me around your fabulous island? I know somebody will be out riding when I am there, I am more than happy to follow along in the back...

    Did you contact HiADV? Jason knows exactly what you're looking for, I got a Two Smoke so roads aren't really my bag though there are some bikes that I have access to. PM me when you're here.

    Yup, spoke with Jason and reserved a DR650 for my visit.

    I may take a paid tour with him, but am looking for some good half day rides too. I plan on getting some ideas from him, but heading out with a inmate or 2 would be cool too.

    My conference lets out at noon each day and I plan on rolling out shortly afterwards for some exploring every day :wings

    Looking forward to some sunshine and warm weather for sure - I will be bringing my Summer weight gear :super

    That was quick. Love the selection of bikes they rent. We moved here, to the Hilo side, just over 2 years ago from Puyallup, Washington. I was just about to turn 58 years old. Sold my 3 motorcycles there. Where are you living in Washington? Did a lot of riding there starting at age 8 in the dirt.

    Just a thought, it's winter here, too. We are having some rain right now and there is a chance of snow on the mountains. If you plan on going anywhere uphill, Saddle Road for example, it can get fairly cold. It's a good idea to bring clothes you can layer...

    I was keeping that in mind, still going to bring my rain gear and a real jacket.

    Thanks for the reminder :clap

    I have been riding to work all year, seen 20 degrees one day last month - so I'm not stranger to cold weather riding. I just wont' have my heated gear to take off the edge :cry
