Any inmates willing to show me around your fabulous island? I know somebody will be out riding when I am there, I am more than happy to follow along in the back...
Did you contact HiADV? Jason knows exactly what you're looking for, I got a Two Smoke so roads aren't really my bag though there are some bikes that I have access to. PM me when you're here.

Yup, spoke with Jason and reserved a DR650 for my visit.

I may take a paid tour with him, but am looking for some good half day rides too. I plan on getting some ideas from him, but heading out with a inmate or 2 would be cool too.

My conference lets out at noon each day and I plan on rolling out shortly afterwards for some exploring every day

Looking forward to some sunshine and warm weather for sure - I will be bringing my Summer weight gear

That was quick. Love the selection of bikes they rent. We moved here, to the Hilo side, just over 2 years ago from Puyallup, Washington. I was just about to turn 58 years old. Sold my 3 motorcycles there. Where are you living in Washington? Did a lot of riding there starting at age 8 in the dirt.

Just a thought, it's winter here, too. We are having some rain right now and there is a chance of snow on the mountains. If you plan on going anywhere uphill, Saddle Road for example, it can get fairly cold. It's a good idea to bring clothes you can layer...

I was keeping that in mind, still going to bring my rain gear and a real jacket.

Thanks for the reminder

I have been riding to work all year, seen 20 degrees one day last month - so I'm not stranger to cold weather riding. I just wont' have my heated gear to take off the edge
