Comments: Great weather, great roads, great beaches, this island is not the largest, but it's still a great ride. Lots of motorcycles out on the weekends doing the "ride around the island" bit. Bikes are available to rent (but of course not too many BMW's). You can always hop over to the "Big Island" of Hawaii if you need to pile up the miles. One multi-brand dealer handles BMW, they are good guys - just not much choice. Oh, and did I mention great weather?

Comments: The other folks describing our favorite island and home, have pretty much said all one NEEDS to know before coming ! Once here, you can call & ask specific questions about what ever is on your mind. There is literally TOO MUCH Great stuff/ places to go/things to see,visit etc.! This is NOT anisland one can see and really take in during a visit. My idea is a moving expedition, or read about this palce, go to an area that immediately jumps out at you and then explore it, and move on.

Comments: Basically Hawaii is paradise. The weather is perfect year 'round for motorcycle riding. If you come to any of the islands for vacation, you can probably rent 'motorcycles'. On my island it is mostly Harleys and scooters. I can point you in the right direction for pretty much anything. The island of Hawaii is very country with long secondary type roads going around and across the island (9 hrs. round trip). + I have a '94 R1100RS that I drive daily to work. I am a mech. designer for a 3.6m telescope run by Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope Corp. The best thing I can do is give you a tour of our site at 14,000 ft of the worlds best optical telescope.
