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:
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.
Edited with locations
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?
That's how I have done it and would do it again. It starts at around 7,000' at the south end and ends up at 2,800' in Waimea (think; Grand Canyon). They are making improvements, there is even talk of paving it, but if there have been recent heavy rains in that area it can get pretty washed out and chewed up. There are/were some pretty gnarly steep downhill spots near the Doctors Pit, too. I was able to get down them on my BMW R75/5, but getting back up them in the other direction would have been impossible. More pics of Mana Road: headed out from Waimea (this was after it had been recently graded)
...and the return trip
Nearing Waimea Town:
Yep. Gotta go check it out. Waimea Brewhouse as the final destination.
