    I've got tons of pics that I figured I'd share from here in Hawaii. Feel free to join in!

    We operate a dual sport rental company here on the Big Island so let us know if you are ever in the neighborhood and we can set you up with a proper ride :wave

    Coming soon! The views along the coast in Hilo are unreal. Unfortunately last time I rolled through I didn't have a camera but I'll probably head up the Kohala coast this weekend and through Hilo. I'll be sure to snap some pics... stay tuned.

    My wife's first moto-adventure. She was hooked!
    We had a dual sport reserved, but when we got there it was broken so we ended up with a Sporty. It was OK, if you didn't mind bottoming out every time you ran over a pebble. And people couldn't understand why we were geared up :huh.

    Took a ride out to Green Sands Beach (Papalokea) on the KLX 250. Fun place to ride with trails everywhere! I also posted a video in another thread if you want to check it out.

    If I get 500 miles out of a rear I'm happy, usually less.

    Nice GS, perfect bike for the island if you ask me. I'm guessing by "old" you don't have it anymore? You doing the Lava Butt ride? I had some business get in the way last minute so I'm not going to make it unfortunately. I'll be keeping an ear out for the next ride. Let me know if you hear of anything.

    Oh,and here's a pic to keep on topic. Road to the Sea...

    I'll start off with them tomorrow for the East Hawaii stuff and then I plan to do the North stuff on Saturday, got to flip a coin on which bike to ride Sfront's 530 or my 200.... Maybe both!!! :1drink

    The 650 was nice and comfortable and got great fuel economy but didn't have the suspension and was far too heavy for the rough.

    Coming around R-1 on Mauna Kea with Mauna Loa coming into view:

    Nice shot! How's the ride going?

    I took the FJ out to R1 on Wednesday... great spot. I'll prolly take the KLX out there later this week.

    Lava Butt was fun on the sections I rode, five guys from Oahu came 12 from east Hawaii and five more from the west side yesterday. A little drama on Mana rd. in the dark with a snapped chain, last guys got back to Hilo on the chase truck at about 10:00...

    Here's a shot from Keanakolu Rd a few years back, I broke my arm in Mud Lane about an hour later....

    Dang. I don't have any riding pics from Hawai'i. I had an '87 DR200, then an '87 XL250R (I still have the XL) when I was an Active-Duty Marine at MCB Hawaii on Oahu '86-'89 (MCAS Kaneohe Bay back then).

    I did most of my dirt riding up on the North Shore near Haleiwa, up in the hills. The Army had a training area up there that they opened to the public on weekends, accessible from the Kamehameha highway by a dirt road, across from the Banzai Pipeline.

    I had a cheesy 110 camera at first, then a decent point-n-click 35mm later on, but I never took a camera with me riding.

    (sigh)

    So keep those Hawai'i photos coming, folks.
