    Aloha! Just wanted to give the fellow inmates a heads up about a new business I started here in Maui www.mauidualsport.com

    We do dual sport rentals as well as adventure tours around the island. Being a avid dirt biker and ADV rider here I would run into people visiting the islands on my bike everyday asking where they can get a dual sport to explore with and since there are no options for that we started up this new shop to share the experience!

    Some of you have probably rented a dual sport from Jon at the former Maui Dual Sport back a few years ago. We have worked with him and taken over the name and website and now have a full retail and rental shop in Kahului right by the airport.

    Being a AGATT rider I wanted to make sure other riders are protected so we have full gear included with each rental or tour. Alpine Star GoreTex Boots, Padded waterproof riding pants, Riding Jersey, Dual Sport Helmets, Waterproof Icon jacket and waterproof gloves.

    The bikes are the tried and true 2013 Kawasaki KLR's equipped with Mototech Crash Guards, MotoTech Skid Plates, Bark Buster Hand Guards, and tail and tank bags so you can feel confident in going off-road.

    Our tours are not so much "tours" but a real riding experience like you would have riding with your friends. We have a Half Day trip up the backside of Haleakala Volcano through the dirt and a full day dual sport ride through the Hana rain forest and all the way around the backside of the island.

    If you have any questions let me know, hope to ride with you soon! :D

    You can also like us on facebook, I add new riding photos on there almost daily

    Very nice! Looks like you've got a ktm/klr there! I hope it's a success for you, and I also hope to see you one day.

    Let us know how it goes. I am leaving for Honeymoon to Maui in 4 days :clap
    My wife misses my KLR so I thought this would be a nice treat. Not sure if they allow 2-up, or if I could spend that kind of $

    Had a great ride with John (Chi_Raindog) yesterday all the way around the backside of the island.

    Yes we do allow 2-up on rentals and we have all the riding gear for your lady included as well. Its $199 for 24 hours. Let me know if you want to set something up :D

    Awesome!!! My wife loves going over there. I'm one of the guys who rented from Jon. The bike back then was a little better.

    But having a tour guide would make it probably at least as memorable. I'll definitely be a customer next time I'm over there.

    We just got back from a full day of riding 2-up around the south end of Maui! This was one of the best rides we've ever done. There was never a dull moment, great scenery the entire way! Lots of waterfalls to swim at and a few secluded beaches.
    Chris, I already PM`d you about taking the bike out again this week! My wife is already talking about where to ride next...I hope you have some more suggestions
    Pics coming soon, using kindle for internet right now and don't have card reader for camera

    Day 2: Haleakala Crater - Very chilly climbing to 10,000+ feet. After reaching the summit, we quickly found lower elevation for warm air and sunshine!

    Had an excellent ride with Chris when I was in Maui. He equipped me with everything you need for a dual sport ride. Chris was full of info on Maui and took me places you would never find on your own. Highly recommended if your visiting Maui! Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to post the pictures he took.

    In Maui now. Wife brought home a brochure she found while at the store up the road. Made the call last night. Going riding Friday!!! Looking forward to it. We normally rent Harleys for a few days and rental the Arlen Ness choppers one year which is always good but this year I wanted to go off road. Had no idea you guys were here until yesterday. :clap

    Just rode with these guys today. They also will do dirt tours with Ktms, Hondas and Kawis. I did some riding today that had some of the most spectacular views and into places I would have never known about. If you come to Maui you better check them out!!!! It was amazing.:clap
