    Maui no kai oi!

    What part of The Valley Isle are you from?

    I was born and raised in Wailuku. My friends and I rode our balloon-tire cruisers to Kahului, Wailuku and Iao Valley.

    Man, a motorized bike must be fun with less traffic than Oahu. I'd love to ride there...

    If the highway to Lahaina wasn't so hazardous for bicycles(I'm presuming), the 20-something mile ride from Wailuku to Lahaina would be a blast!:devilish:

    Hey Thom,

    I used to live by Golden Jade restaurant in Wailuku.

    I saw your bike; it looks awesome! Very well put together.

    Riding a motorized bike in Honolulu and mixing it up with cars is like driving on the L.A. freeway, lol. I commute 12 mile round trip to work daily. It's like a 20-minute amusement ride twice daily! Fuel costs $10 monthly. Free parking inside the parking structure. If I drive, then I park over quarter-mile away and the mynah birds dump on my car, lol.

    If the Super Ferry was still in business, my friend and I would bring our bikes and circle the island. Haleakala would be a challenge, though. Would have to install a bigger sprocket, though.

    Wow, so you get to ride down Haleakala Highway then!

    Must be SOME...good! lol

    For you non-Maui residents, SOME..good/nice/big/pretty/smart/ugly is Maui slang.:jester:

    Welcome to the forum. I've been to Oahu a couple of times. I want to see Maui and the big island.
