New (to me) 2014 F800GSA

Hey everyone, just picked up a used 2014 F800GSA. Super excited about the bike, not as excited about having it on Oahu. I should be moving off- island in a little over a year, so I'll be able to use it to its full potential when that happens. Until then I'm perfectly happy cruising the streets, but I'd be even happier if I had some trails off road stuff to mess around on. Anyone out there know of any places on Oahu that are good? Thanks!

I've never been to Hawaii sorry! But congrats on the bike brah (that's how they say it there?) I know how it sucks when you have a post and no replies so there you go.

You got it, brah! Thanks for the post, I looked for an " introduce yourself, noob" thread but didn't see one.

Not sure what heddie trails are (I assume it's some sort of an auto correct trail) but there's only one that I know of and it's only 3 miles out and back. I'd like to have a couple more options but I'm still on the lookout.

Last year, someone posted something about "I'm coming to the mainland, can I borrow a bike and when you come to Hawaii I will lend you my bike and take you on cool dirt rides?" type of thread. Go to the regional sections. It might have been the Pact NW section. I'm not sure if it was on the same island but never know. Good luck!

Ka'Ena Point would the first place I'd ride.

Yeah, that's probably what I'll do. They just gated the entrance on the north Shore and you have to register and get a sticker for your vehicle before you can drive the off road portion. Gotta do that yet.

Where's the fence, right at the last car parking area with the rocks? (I don't know the name)

The gate is right at the end of the paved road, I haven't been to the east side to see if it is gated as well but I assume it is.

I'll be out there this summer, PCS-ing from Los Angeles. I've got a 2015 F800 GSA myself. Haven't taken it off road here in SoCal yet. Post up if you hit the trails out there. I'm curious as to how they are. I love wheeling in my Nissan Xterra, not that I've got the BMW though, I hope to be on the trails every weekend if I can.
