Yea i know. I think "haole" can be characterized by 18-25yr old white military who never left the backwords of kentucky and this is the first time they have actually seen some type of culture

yeah, it the "Im in the military, Im the shit" attitude that get em. Im in the military myself, 25 too. Just not your typical military guy. You respect people and their home, they respect you. Simple.

sup from kahoolawe!!!.... actually i live on maui but work on rock.

as for the haole thing. i was in the military as well and its almost the same thing in the mainland("continental states" for you haoles). simple rule as stated before respect the local culture. you cant go wrong if you do that. basically it boils down to respect, show the locals some they will return it.

Hey guys I live in Honolulu. I moved here from Oregon. The traffic here sucks, but at least I got to ride this winter. Thats not something I would have been able to do back home.

Maybe Snake Road, Tantalus, 13 turns on Oahu,
and driving up the Kohala Coast over to Waimea, and through Honokaa, Lapahoehoe and Akaka Falls on the Big Island
Or just ride the road to Hana on Maui.

Has anyone shipped their bike over for a few days of riding on another island. Seems kind of expensive. Yeah Tant's is nice for a car but the road conditions suck. And I dont want to get clipped by some loud ass civic with a wing. :flipa

Annie may be able to answer your question kastivich...i believe Dangerous Curves did a big island trip and shipped all their bikes over there and back. Or I'm sure she could direct you to another member who went on the trip

You can get information from Young Brothers. We had a "special" deal because one of our members owns a "shipping company". Came to about $100 per bike both ways

Shipping used to be cheap, then the Hurley doods ruined that by making damage claims...... I had a kikbutt Dualsport that I shipped to every Island but Kahoolawe and Ni'ihau used to cost $15.00 each way VIA Young Brothers.
Now your best bet is renting a container and going as a group. We do it every year for the Kauai Hare n Hound Race and it gets it to about $40 a person but thats dirtbikes packed any 'ol way in the container. Wouldn't want to do that with a Sportbike...... :lol

When it was cheap I'd go to Kauai or Big Island several times a year and stay at my friends place and go nuts!
On Kauai several years ago I actually had a CR500 Honda I made into a dualsport streetlegal! Using a Baja Designs Lighting kit. They make kits for virtually any bike and if its a 4 stroke ya got no problem. No strokers tho :(
Only prob, I brought it to Hono and tried to register it and they were shaking there heads the instant the serial number went into the pooter.... It's on the NO list :(
