Hello all,

My wife and I are going to Hawaii in April to celebrate my sixtieth birthday. I would like to rent a bike for one day a ride around the island. Can I rent a Goldwing? I'm pretty sure there are Harleys available. I think it would be great to cruise around the circumference of the island. Any help, suggestions appreciated.

Yes, there is a Harley dealer in Honolulu a few miles from the airport. Corner of N. Nimitz Hwy and Kalihi St. Last year went in there while doing work on the island for a 2 week stay. Could not fit my bike on the plane, but did find room for golf clubs... :D

I lived there for 5 years back in the 80's so touring was not a big thing for me. Just going back to the old neighborhood was something to see. Oahu has gotton sooooo crowded and too busy for my liking...

Eagle Rider only shows Harley's for rent...Could not find a honda rental place on line for ya

Good luck!!

There is a rental dealer in Honolulu who will ship a Gold Wing to any island for you. He's in the gold book as an GWRRA officer in Hawaii. His first name is Gary, I can't remember his last name. I met him through the gold book and he arraigned a wing for me to ride in Honolulu. This was before he started a business. I have rented a Harley in Maui, to ride the Hanna Highway, do it! Harley wasn't a wing though. Wife hated it. Gary even gave me a certificate that I had ridden in Hawaii.

Thanks for the information...

I think I posted this one night very early in the morning and forgot about it. Sorry. My wife is nurse and works nights. So, we keep weired hours.
We will be going to 'Hawaii'. the big island. I hope that we can rent a Harley if not a Wing. Thank you again for your input.

Theres a place in Kailua-Kona (south of the airport) that rents HD's and scooters. They are right next to were the Iron Man race starts, and a Irish Pub. The roads are nice and quiet on the big island, one side of the island is like a rain forest (east) and the other side is dry (west). You will have a great time.
