Road to Hana

The Road to Hana is none better than on a scooter… 140 miles and 10 hours for us from Kihei all the way around paved and unpaved- so. much. fun and amazingly beautiful. It’s hard to describe, but perfect for the small displacement scooters. Tight twisties, lush jungle and then on the east / south side south of Hana- barren -like being on the moon but with turquoise water. I’m pretty sure we blew the fork seals out on the bumpy “non-rental car” dirt – poor paved road south of Hana and  – but had so much fun… Lunch in Hana, shaved ice in Keanae -half way to Hana- and coffee in Nahiku…

West Maui Mountains

Dad and I were up early this morning to go exploring out the west Maui mountains- beatiful lush switchbacks and sweet small villages with warm, friendly people – about 80 miles and about 8 hours- ha! We stopped for breakfast in Lahaina, made our way along the coast around the west side and finished off in the Iao Valley for a nice wade in the pools of the Iao Valley State Park… The scenery was super lush

Lahaina

Dad and I took the bus down the street to pick up the scooter from Hawaiian Cruisers a rental shop for scooters, mopeds and ninja 250s. For a warm up ride we went out to Lahaina- the once royal capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom- now a quaint little town, a main street lined with shops, galleries, bars, restaurants and the world’s largest known banyan tree…image
