Still on Oahu HI, be back in CT tomorrow.

Observation: almost nobody wears a helmet here. Not the millions of scooter riders, not the cruiser people, just a few sport bike and BMW riders. Jackets, pants, boots, gloves: nobody.

On the other hand, after 2 weeks of seeing a million 2 wheeled riders, I've yet to see a bike mishap. Very low speed limits, 25-35 on the streets, 50-55 on the highways.

Supposed to be lots of good off road riding, but I wasn't able to partake this trip, maybe next time.

Ever since Jack Lord left the Islands, law and order have gone in the crapper.

Prefer at this point to stay around his new daughter, Ella, 1 week old now.

Next time though, I'm riding.

Your bike sounds like it's running fine................


You, on the other hand, sound like you should be carrying an oxygen tank for yourself.
