    I would typically park at the Pililaau Recreation Center, leave a note with the lifeguards and paddle south towards Barbers or north towards Kaena. I was on good terms with the lifeguards and they would look out for my return as I shared any catch. I always carried a cell, HF radio and an PLB since I liked to fish the current line (sometimes 3-4 miles off). If the trades were particularly strong I would stay inside the lee of the Waianae or go inside K-bay. Northshore was also nice if the trades were up too much. Always tried to go very early in the morning and be back in before the winds picked up too much. In retrospect, not the smartest thing to do by yourself but that's why I carried the comms equipment. I always listened to the HF as the dolphin/whale boats were always chatting about bird piles (i.e. fish). Of all the places I have lived I miss Oahu and Olympia, WA the most. The outdoor opportunities in those two places were awesome.

    Who on ADV is going to ride this event?

    Getting some of my Pro A rider sections ready for the Rally event.
    Remember these sections will be options to ride for high points or pass to get lesser points on street sections that you have to go to two or more different places to match the points of the one gnarly off road section.

    Day one will circumvent Mauna Loa on the Highway with optional roads and off road trails to score points, day two is the same but circumventing Mauna Kea with optional off road trails.

    The top of Mauna Kea 13,760 elev, and Mauna Loa @ 11,000 elev. will be options also...points sections will be to the degree of difficulty.

    You will have all the options to fit you're riding skills to make this a real fun. Rally.

    Any type of Motorcycle can ride this Rally from 1200cc to 200cc....if its got Lci plates you can enter this event.

    This is a Bucket list ride for sure for you old timers that want to get in a good fun holo holo ride without bustin’ your okole, and for the "go for it riders” of past you can dial into what ever you can handle and drink beer after with benchracing bragging rights...Just do it!~~Ride now! die happy you did later~

    Ride requirements~~

    Plated legal motorcycles only!
    Team of two or more. (there will be no sweep riders) you will cover your team mates.

    Must have GPS unit to down load course map to follow.
    Must have Cell Phone to call if you need chase truck assistance.

    Tips> Garmin GPS or Trail Tech Voyager GPS units are recommended, being water proof and handle bar mountable.

    Cell phone GPS may not work in some area's and are not water proof.

    [COLOR="DarkOrange"]Because of trees down I had to detour and drop down into this wide deep heavily tropical vegetative crack, and cut a trail down it until I found a reasonable spot for big hand full of throttle to quickly exit up an out of "Mosquito Hell Trench&#8221;~~~~~~~>

    Jason at HIAdv is the only show on the Big Island, see if he'll let you rent a DRZ.

    Talk to the MauiMoto guys, if you all get a container together you can stuff a ton of bikes, gear, gas cans, and a girlfriend or two in and save costs, other wise build a pallet.

    I'm pretty sure SFront is coming from Florida, if he can make it coming from anyplace else is cake!!!:freaky

    My nephew Lou Belanger of belangerheaders.com

    came over for three days of kick ass off road riding, we knobby blasted the lava rocks with every twist of the wrist.

    Being a desert rider Lou had no problem going smooth fast over Hawaii&#8217;s demanding lava trails.
