Lots of nice pics of the Big Island. My better half and I lived there for about 5 years. There were only a couple of points on the downside about living there. 1) There is a limited amount of roads to ride and they all eventually go in circles (on the plus side its hard to get lost) 2) lots of rain (on the plus side fewer showers are needed) 3) fuel cost is high (on the plus side bikes get good mph) 4) many good views (no down side). Before going over I rode many miles in Mexico. While doing that I learned to ride with what I thought were the most dangerous drivers possible -- I wasn't prepared for Hawaiian drivers. Mexicans are just crazy drivers, Hawaiian drivers are poor at best, on either ice, pakalolo or liquor most of the time.
I did lots of riding and survived. I did many circles around the island.
Alas we both survived and are now back in Texas where we belong.
