    We used to run the roads in the cane fields before they were chained off. Only thing was, cane trucks drove like there wasn't supposed to be anybody out there. A few surprises and sudden trips into the cane at speed. Beats being run over, but cane has these little tiny needles on all the leaves.
    We used to ride Kaena Point a lot, before the road washed out on the Waianae side and they turned it into a park.

    Got caught by the fires Thursday coming back from Volcano on the Saddle road down to one lane traffic and found 190 closed. Fire on the saddle was almost out when I went by but the blaze on 190 was going pretty good. Had traffic snarled bad. Its bone dry on the island right now. Got back to Kealakekua right at sunset so was a good days ride.

    I'm going to be in Maui on Feb 26th till March 4th. My girlfriend is a doctor and has meetings to attend the weekday mornings that week from 7:00 to 1:00 each day. I'll be looking for some adventure while she in her meetings. I'm going on the "road to Hana KLR tour on tuesday". I'll have a car rented for the remaining time. I'll be packing a camera looking for lots of photo op's. What do you locals do there for fun? Best to reach me at dakotabeemer@hotmail.com
    Cheers.

    Get up reeelly early and catch the sunrise from Haleakala. You have to be there while it' still dark to appreciate it.

    Drive the Road to Hana and swim in the Seven Sacred Pools. Pretty drive and great place to swim. I'll keep thinking, feel free to PM me your phone number.

    It was just one of the off limits roads on Wheeler Army Air Field, they ended up running me off and blocking the road off for workers only.

    Ahh. They've pretty much locked down everything near Schofield and Wheeler.

    Yup, I'm a little hesitant to do much more than a dirt road for now... But, I'm thinking about getting permission to go to Peacock Flats from the Kaena Point Tracking Station, it's about 7-8 miles of dirt road to a camp site. I've hiked part of it and it gets a little slick, not sure how the bike would hold up.

    A friend of mine did Peacock Flats on his GSA and spent a lot of time picking it up off the ground.

    Do you think it's a worth it ride? I've never been to the end of the road.

    I really can't say. I haven't done it myself.

    I'd go. Pretty area, no people, and the stars should be amazing.

    Anyone tried taking a bike up to Waimea for the Eddie? I've got to assume you could find parking a lot easier and closer than in a car.

    Did you go? We were out there a couple days ago and Waimea was 50' or better. Pupukeas was the same, I need to post a video.
