Ok thank you.
At least until you get acclimated to the "winters" here.
The new end of the road in Puna, can't get to the lighthouse this way.
At least the rain appears to have stopped.
34 inches in my yard is enough!
We are on Kona side. We had to watch TV to see the hurricane.
Where are these places? I think I recognise a few of them.
Cool. Thanks. I think I need to hit Mana Road one of these days. A friend recently rode it from Mauna Kea Access Road to Waimea on a pedal bike.
Is there a preferred direction?
Yep. Gotta go check it out. Waimea Brewhouse as the final destination.
I'll be moving to Oahu shortly and I just found out I can only ship one bike in my household goods. I have a vstrom1000 and a pcx 150. For those on Hawaii what would you bring?
I'm thinking the scooter to save on gas. But I have no idea if it's worth bringing an adventure bike.
I'm thinking that it may depend on what part of the island you're on. In general, I would think that the opportunities for dual sporting or off-roading in general will be pretty limited compared to anywhere on The Continent. On the other hand, if you find yourself anywhere between Hawai'i Kai and Kapolei, you'll probably be much better served by the scooter.
When I lived in town, I had a 650 Honda. It was more than enough for any riding I cared to do on the island.
Let us know when you get settled in and made your 2-wheeled decision.
e como mai!
Just moved the islands in late September and after exploring the Big Island and Maui over the last two months, we fell in love with the Big Island and move into our home in Waimea in December.
Looking forward to connecting with others and exploring the Big Island now that my DR650 is being delivered with the rest of our stuff!
Nice ride what year is your Beemer? I like southpoint area makes for good pics
I live in Kaneohe and I ride my TW200 (avatar) to Honolulu for work over the H3 each day. The 200 is plenty for the island. I ride it all over the island, no problem, no need for a bigger bike.
Now live and work in Hilo. Haven't really started exploring yet but plan on it now that we are settled in. Suggestions of fun roads and gps tracks for either dirt or pavement definitely welcome.
Seen some of the dual sport videos from south island, probably too gnarly for my F8 but I'm game for taking the bike just about anywhere within its capabilities (and mine).
Anyone around who wants to ride give a shout.
No way. I’ve ridden a TW at highway speeds and it was NOT happy. No offense, that’s just not something I’d do, and I grew up riding motorcycles on Oahu.
In fact, I’ll be there tomorrow. Anybody up for a meet n greet on Oahu?
I put a 47-tooth rear sprocket on the bike, and it's doing great! The H3 limit is 60mph and it cruises it easily. I'd love to meeet up with you sometime, send a PM when you get settled.
Where to get tires on Hawaii island?
Looking to replace my H3 oriented rear with something more appropriate for BI riding conditions.
Any local options for knobby sellers I should check out? Running into issues with online retailers not wanting to ship to the islands.
I just found out I am able to bring both
