Aloha from Maui.

Aloha.

My young wife and I live on the north shore of Maui, I am going to retire in a week, and we are getting ready to relocate to the pacific northwest.

I am retired in the PNW, and Jenn and I go to Maui every year!

You are going to love the roads here in the PNW, especially Oregon and Northern CA.

Cheers!

We are originally from there. We've ridden everywhere, from Seattle, to Laguna Seca.

We have some great roads here too, but we have no track.

Congrats! Where do you go when you're here?

We've lived in Kihei in south Maui, we've lived on the island of Lanai, we've lived upcountry in Kula, and we've been on the north shore in Haiku for the last several years.

Welcome back to the PNW (when you get here), and welcome to pnwmoto.

Oregon has some of the best roads, well WA has some too Not to mention N. Cal.

I've rented a bike while on Maui a few times. I LOVE the stretch from Kapalua around the North almost down to Kahului. The road to Hana can be fun if there isn't too much traffic. I had the wrong bike when I rode the gravel side to Hana but it was still fun. Rallying up to Haleakala and back was a blast as well.

There is some place that is renting Duke 390s now. There was a place in town that was renting dual-sports.

The roads pictured above are Crater Road (Highway 378) up Haleakala. That's where I ride. It's a beautiful road, but tends to get clogged up with Harley renters that wobble all over the road, cross the solid double yellow in blind corners, and are utterly oblivious to the traffic they're holding up when they travel at less than the speed limit in their road coma.

Really looking forward to doing a track day or two next summer. Which track day organizations do not use the chicane?

Aloha!

We are a Kauai family...Poipu. But anyone who is Kama'a'ina both island and PNW and rides is a solid bruddah in my book.

Welcome!

We love Kauai. If we were not on Maui, we'd be on Kauai. Just hate the traffic theough Kapaa at rush hour.

Gonna miss all the Spam and rice, as well as 365 days a year of sunny riding weather.

Hello!
We go to Maui every year, Maui ruined sushi for us, it's unbelievably delicious, love me some Miso Phat Sushi and Sloppy Cakes (that's not what I call it ).

just a slight temperature change to get adjusted to.
