Hawaii Bike Rentals?

I notice Hawaii is not included in any of the regional forums...SInce so many Alaskans seem to venture to HI I'm wondering if anyone can help me get my mid-winter riding fix on the Big Island? Any suggestions of where I can rent a dual sport bike in or around the Kona area? My goggling shows me that it 99% harley's for rent and 1% scooters. Any ride suggestions would be good too...

Yep, that's about it. I did some digging around looking for a DS ride for my trip there a couple weeks ago...no dice. Further investigation upon arrival confirmed what we've both found (HDs and scooters).

Rent a Ruckus and pretend!

Every rental car and every rental bike is a dual sport.

They're all high performance, too.



Have a good time!

Nothing out performs a rental.... absolutely nothing.

Agreed....

The little 4 door POS we had down there did wonderful burn-outs when you dropped it into Drive at 3k rpm.

Awesome! Thanks Mark. I'm going to contact these guys and see what I can set up. I'll take a thumper over a hog any day! And guess I won't need that extra insurance coverage on the rental car. Now I just need to figure out how I'm going to strap that baby seat on the back of a KLR.

Well, SEWERMAN found us! He's out right now on the KLR to take in a full day adventure... Hawaii style. I'm sure he'll report back with plenty of photos

We are working on our search engine optimization everyday to try and get noticed. It sounds like a few of you guys searched for dual sport rentals here and had no luck. It's a constant battle to get our site to the top but rest assured that we are here and ready to gear you up for a Hawaiian Dual Sport Adventure! Mahalos to AKDuc for help spreading the word! http://www.hiadv.com/
