Yeah, I was on a bit of a rant.. haha sorry about that. But even though it's not ALL bad here in Hawaii, it COULD be a lot better if the state gave a crap about riders here.
The California Superbike thing is for military only I believe.. I'm pretty sure it is anyway, but it sounds fun. Maybe I'll see if I can get into that.
Hawaii certainly isn't the mainland, but Im not sure its as bad as described above. California SuperBike school sets up here every 2-3 months and we use an air field (Kaneohe or Wheeler) as a track.(This might be for military only) Is it Daytona? No, but I look forward to it. I live on the west side so traffic isn't at all like it is in town and we aren't limited to one lane like the North Shore often is.
If you are hardcore, if you "need" track time you will suffer. If you're like the rest of us you get up a little earlier on the weekends to get a ride around the island w/o traffic in.I have 4 awesome turns on my way to work and I work on hitting those w/good lines, body position and a safe-for-the-stree-but-still-somehwhat-fast corner speed. I bet those who have never been here would be awed by a run up H3 and over the Pali.
