Is there a way of shipping a bike and my bad-self to Kauai from California?
You could ship your bike over with Pasha. They are in National City, Ca. That is real close to San Diego.
When I was looking at shipping my bike from Seattle, I found Pasha to be the least expensive. But San Diego was too far away, so I ended up selling it instead. Also, I suspect that shipping to Kauai would be more than to Honolulu, since it would need to be barged from Honolulu to Nawiliwili. Unless you plan to stay on Kauai long-term, it may be cheaper just to rent something there.
Wow.... It rains a lot on Kauai anyway. But can you imagine being in the Kalalau and having a biblical flood? No place to go except up the canyon walls, and they are probably covered in running water as well. I bet the trail in/out is gone in places, so they'll have to be evacuated by boat or helicopter.
A friend of mine lives on Maui, and he said the amount of rainfall was pretty amazing. My folks still live in Manoa, they're fine.
I remember in the mid 60s we had a storm come through that rained an inch an hour for over 24 hours. The rain on Kauai was worse than that!
Holy crap..... that's a lot.
So my latest thought is shipping the bike to the Big Island, ride around there for a few days, then store it for a month while I go to Kauai. Reason being, Hawaii is the only US State I haven't ridden my bike in and I have been offered some charity work on Kauai for a month.
Anyone have storage space for a month on the Big Island?
Depending on when you go, I am moving there with the military. Motorcycles are considered "weight", and I have some spare weight that can get moved to Oahu...
Interesting. I was thinking in the next couple of weeks but am flexible. When are you going?
Where are you? I'm down in Hawaiian Shores.
Going to be on Oahu visiting the folks, starting tomorrow. Can't wait! Poke, haupia, plate lunch, sashimi, saimin......
If you are near Pele's current show, there is a new evacuation order on the Civil Defense network. If you are in Lanipuna Gardens, evacuate makai NOW. Two new vents just opened.
I almost lost my house to a forest fire years ago. If you don't have time, the things to grab are family photos and portable heirlooms, and legal documents. Everything else is just stuff and replaceable. Stay safe!
Just got back from spending two weeks in Waikiki.
We love spending time in your beautiful part of the World.
hope you were able to get out and see the rest of the island.
Been poking around the internet for a few days trying to get info for rentals/tours on the Big Island (family vacation) and it seems pretty slim, especial for dual sport/adventure rentals. Anyone have any tips for while I'm there? An FJ-09 seems to be the best options I've found through this company. https://www.hiadv.com/ (pricey) any routes I need to check out while I"m there or can I just wonder around?
They and the Harley dealer in Kona are the only bike rental places that I know of here on the Big Island. There may be something over on Hilo side, but I am not aware of any.
Yes, we did thanks.
We hired a car for the two weeks that we were there and had a really good look around.
We also managed plenty of time on the balcony enjoying the sunsets too.
Hi all, I'm new here. I should be moving to Oahu this time next year and I'm trying to get an idea of what type of riding gear I'll need.
Is it not worth bring cold riding gear?
No, leave it behind. You will not need it on Oahu. Even in winter it’s always quite warm here.
I was on Maui two years ago and rented a KLR while I was there. I'm going to be in Kauai in February. Would anyone know of a place there that rents motorcycles. I prefer a dual sport or non-cruiser style bike. Thanks. Ernie
Looks like this place will rent you a dual sport:
