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....
They still ride out that way. They park their trucks by COSTCO and run over by the mililani cemetery back through there. Normally see about 20 or 30 on Sat or Sun

Kahuku is a nice track. They are building a dirt track down on Sand Island, a full 4x4 course, not sure what the progress is on that. Also if they ever get the funding for it, they'll have some dirt tracks on the new course at Barbers, but i doubt they'll get the money for that anytime soon.

I'd recommend the hale koa as well. If your son is stationed at Schofield you may want to try "the inn" he should be able to get you reservations up there.
