The Dells ride was a blast! logged in 500 miles and took in some excellent twisties. Ran into a little rain, but mostly sunny and 70. Hope you all had a good weekend. See you soon. Finish that budget crap so we can ride!

How much is a rental bike going to cost you?
AND how many days do you need one?

Also, you might re-consider riding with these guys....
They're nothing but biker trash.....You'll end up in all the trashy bars on the island. Probably end up in jail.
They only attract ugly women wearing leather with spikes......You could end up being dominated in some cellar tied to the rafters.
I've rode with them before.....now I'm a ruined man.

Cool! I must have found the right crew to ride with The HD is about $125/day and I have it for 3 days. Hope you can join us on a ride.

JonD,

Don't let the locals hook you up with any 'maho's' (it's been 20 years since I've been to Oahu, I think that's the local slang for them...).

Post some pix of riding around the island on the WIVO boards...

Jim,

No problem with the pics, I have some from last years quick trip. I'll keep an eye out for the Mahos. Would a VTX bro really let another VTX bro do something wrong or bad

3 days till I get to Waikiki! Can't wait! It's getting cold and rainy here so not much riding left in this season, time to switch to the warmer climate. See you guys soon. Keep the rubber side down!

Steve, did you ride after Shriners?

This was my first year in four that I didn't go. A 15 min ride from the gardens where the club's meet to shriner's hospital; 2 hrs talking story and 1hr to eat if you didn't volunteer to work with a kid inside. Then afterwards Ray would call end of ride . . . . go home.

Steve, Cal, Gene, Donna and I rode the entire island and not a drop of rain. And home by 1:30. That's what I like about leaving at 8:30. Low traffic and some good cruzing on the North Shore.

Jon . . . I'll give you a shout tomorrow if you're checking online at the hotel.

Gary
