Moto Hawaii Tour Write Up...

Recommended Posts

Yesterday Puinsai_5, Duane and I went on the Moto Hawaii Tour on the island of Kauai. We met up with TT member pgr11.

Before I go any further I'd like to thank Jeff Guest, Billy and Derek for an awesome day. The tour is first class all the way. You start off from an incredible place on the North Shore of Kauai and straight into the dirt. The views are spectacular and the riding is first rate. If you want an easy day Jeff can give it to you. If you want a medium difficulty day that's OK too. Or if you want to challenge yourself he can put together a route to keep you sweating but smiling all day long.

We opted for a pretty mellow to medium start of the day so Jeff could see the riding ability of all of us. I think the Hawaii guys passed with flying colors. A guy named Mike from Michigan was having some troubles with the slippery clay and pgr11 from Hisperia CA was doing just fine.

By the end of the day however, things began to become clear. If you want a all mellow day in the mountains, don't bring Torture and his crew. 😛 By the end of the day we all had a great time and that's all I got to say about that.

Moto Hawaii gets 2 big thumbs up! 😢😉 If you come to Hawaii YOU HAVE TO DO THIS TOUR!

to see some REAL trails. We just took a quicky to give him an idea...

Dirt Rider Adventures did two episodes on that tour (Jurassic Kahili Ranch).. saw it last week. Jeremy McGrath, Greg Albertyne and Steve Hatch and a few other riders were along for the tour and they commented about it being some of the nastiest single-track they had ever done - which is a complement coming from those guys 😢

oh, and it's on again tomorrow (Oct 2nd) at 3:00 PM (EST I think) on the OLN channel

That shot of Duane is right up there with the over-the-bars pictures from Canada! Are you going to put an auto-clutch on the YZ? Can I ride it on the tough trails if I come over there? A light bike might increase the chances of my survival! 😢

And blow all my great photos of your tounge wrapped up in the spokes????? Naw, I got a XR650L all ready for you... 😢 :cry:

Actually I'll have something cool for you to ride... 😢

Great pics!

Are you riding on private land?

What bike do you think works best in that environment. I would think a big four stroke might be too much for the tight woods but a 250 four stroke would not have the power to get through the mud. Maybe a KTM 300 EXC would be ideal?

hey Torture; do you know of a similar (a little tamer maybe) touring outfit or maybe some place to rent dual-sport bikes from on Oahu? Someone I know is coming over and although I don't think they are really hard-core off-roaders, they don't want to rent Harley's either..
