    Default RIDING THE BIG ISLAND

    Aloha
    Finally got home and the riding is great. See the General Post for my shipping problems.
    Will start to post pictures...as soon as I figure out how.

    It is a forum rule that anyone riding in Hawaii "must" post pictures and video of every ride they go on.

    So have you been doing all of your maintenance yourself?

    Have something cool for me when you drive to the southernmost bar in the US. I can't remember the name--but had a cool one there.

    Default May 2, and riding.

    The Southernmost bar in the US is Shakas. It's in Na alehu, about 30 min S of me.
    Non of the dealers on the Island (Harley, Honda) will touch the Spyder and have had no contact from Can Am re service/dealership. Can Am has started advertising the Spyder on HI tv...A good sign?
    Still trying to post a pic...must be too big. Mounted a GoPro on my mirror and the video is unreal...clear, crisp. Wish I could figure out how to input sound while riding. Rains every ride...a little. Brought over 1 piece rain suits and sometimes not worth stopping to put on...other times it turns out to be a life saver.

    Posted an update on my Motorcycle Movers/Pasha trouble on the General Forum

    If I had the money, I would purchase a boatload of Spyders and set up a rental business on the islands for the Spyders. Especially Kuaii.
