IL rider coming for a visit

I'm a WIVO (Wisconsin / Illinois VTX Owner and I'm coming to Oahu for a business trip / vacation the end of Oct. Would like to ride with some X'ers while I'm out there. Haven't found a rental place with an X so I'm stuck with a HD, but at least its a bike! I rode around the perimeter of Oahu last year (albeit in a quick 3 hours) didn't get to really enjoy the ride since I wasn't sure where I was going. Any help is welcome. Mahalo!

Sup Jond. Cappy and I ride with a nice bunch of guys called the Intruders of Hawaii. We ride on Sunday's at 9:30 a.m. (Location is Zippy's on Dilingham)

At the same location I also ride with a few riders on Friday nights time, 7:30 p.m.

Let us know your exact dates and we can meet up. I'm guessing you will be staying in Waikiki if so thats where I live and work so a quick ride after work is no problem.

Stop whining you lack discipline!

don't know of any VTX rental places but I know a guy who has good rates on various Harley's. His Dealership is located on Kalakaua Ave. and Niu Street located behind the Jack in the Box. Ask for Max.

Location is Waikiki

Aloha Jon D.

If you're interested in doing more riding and less stopping, plus you don't want to feel you're being herded like cattle in a big group of 20-30 riders, there are four to eight of us that meet and ride at 8:30am every Sunday. I'm also one of the guys who rides the island every Friday night, unless the entire island is socked in with rain.

After three years in the club Steve was talking about, I was intruded on one too many times <wink>.

Thanks brothers. I will be on the island from 10/22 - 11/3. I have the bike for the Friday, Sat, Sun. I did end up with an electra glide. Thought I check it out. Wish I could bring the X with, but I think the TSA may have a problem with it as carry on! Don't think I'd trust the baggage handlers with it! I should be staying at the Outrigger Waikiki on the beach. I'll have my cell with me. My # is 847-875-6844.

Lookin forward to riding with you guys!

Mahalo

Roger that. You'll have the bike the 27th, 28th and 29th. Reach ya @ 847-875-6844. You oughta be able to get some riding in with several groups. Easy to pick you up at the Outrigger in Waikiki. We rode until midnight last night and just got in from a short 40 mile ride tonight. The moon is almost full. Great view past diamond head. In the mean time, ride safe.

Thanks all! Can't wait to ride with you all. Hopefully the weather cooperates here on the mainland so I can still ride for a couple more months. See everyone in October.

Less than a month to go! Can't wait to ride with you guys. I'm going to ride this weekend to the Wisconsin Dells with a portion of our IL / WI group. Dodging rain will suck, but the bar time should be just fine. See you in a month!
