Hello everyone, new guy on the forum here. I'm from O'ahu, HI. I just bought a Kawi Super Sherpa. I took the plastics off and gave them, as well as the front forks and tank a scrub with some 200 grit and a nice spray with primer and Krylon Camoflauge paint (Super Flat Black). i took it out to the trail on Ka'ena Point today, coming from the Dillingham side. I didn't get out of the house until almost 6PM, so it was dark when I reached the trail. Freeway speeds were 55-70 on the way from Honolulu to Dillingham Airfield. I did stop for a little break near Waialua before the sun set and took a couple of pictures. It performed admirably, and I believe that I did as well for my first ride, which was in the dark with almost no moonlight. I kept speeds around 15 mph. I did a couple of hill climbs, on which the bike stalled out a few times. Is there any way to prevent this besides getting more heavy on the throttle? Out and back a couple of miles, almost to the gate that is impassible for anything bigger than a mountain bike. I did feel like things got a little dicey at times, but I feel that is a combination of the dark and my inexperience. Can anyone point me to a thread that has a listing of some good bike trails here on the island? I've heard that there is a motocross track at Kahuku, but I'm not sure if my bike would be well suited to that.[/BR] [/BR] I tried to attach the GPX file for the point from where I took these pictures, but I couldn't get the uploader to work. When reassembling the bike after paint. I noticed that I was missing one of the rubber grommets where the side plate attaches on the front on the right side of the bike. Does anyone know where I can order one of those besides the local dealer? I look forward to some great reading on here. Thanks for organizing this site and sharing all your knowledge and experience!
