Oahu's got some nice day rides. I used to ride DS bikes all around the island before the last bit of bad road on Kaena Point collapsed. You used to be able to ride in the hills behind Mililani Town, but they built a prison in my favorite spot.

Although I live in the mainland, I grew up in Mililani town on O'ahu, way back before the High School was built we used to go ride up by there (I think it was called the pits) , down through Kipapa Gulch and up to where Costco, Kaiser and all the Gentry development is today - back then it was all empty pinapple/sugar cane fields. I remember riding an XR75 on the dirt straights trying to keep up with the cars on Kam highway. You used to be able to ride up to the mountains....those were the days. Today my brother and his family pretty much go riding at the track out by Kahuku....
