    Have You Ever Rented A Motorcycle?

    Iíve rented plenty of cars in my life but I donít know what to expect when renting a motorcycle. Iím going to Honolulu in January to visit my daughter Lauren and since she now owns her first Motorcycle, iím sure she will want to ride.
    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    I did a few times. Over 50 years ago though...
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    No, but your signature line is funny.

    IT IS ONLY WHEN A MOSQUITO LANDS ON YOUR TESTICLES THAT YOU REALIZE THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY TO SOLVE PROBLEMS WITHOUT USING VIOLENCE.

    I have researched online for rentals before but not actually needed to rent one. Sorry I couldn't answer your question.

    I planned to rent one on the big island of Hawaii, a few years ago (2004?), but all the H-D had forward controls, which I do not find comfortable.
    Test rode a Yamaha Bolt a couple days ago. Nice powerplant, but did not care for ergonomics, as the pegs were slightly forward of normal mids.
    Made it awkward to bring my foot up, after a stop and find the shift lever.

    Be careful on Oahu, crazy traffic.

    No motorcycles but we did rent a dune buggy and tour the island about 10 years ago. Did as much of the perimeter as we could and stopped at the Dole Plantation.

    That produced a flash of nostalgia!
    I rented a Honda in the mid sixties (San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles). It died and I did not have a dime for a payphone.

    I rented a 160 Honda in the Philippines a couple times, arranged private party, by a local friend.
    He rented one also.
    We went from Angeles City to far north of Baguio. He did not want to go farther...something about headhunters, circa 1967.

    The second time I rented it, it died, north of Mabalacat and it came back in a Jeepney.

    Looking at a map, trying to figure out where we went. More east than north. I remember a winding road, rice terraces and a reservoir, so I think this was the route, 50 years ago.

    Note that Googlemaps estimates 1.5 hours for only 31 miles!

    The last time I was in Hawaii I noticed a dune buggy with a “Rent Me” sign on the side. I was bummed that I didn’t know I could have rented one. I had a red dune buggy back in the early 90s. It was a blast but I sold it to buy electronics for my new center console fishing boat.
