Default New bike in Hawaii

I've been a lurker for a long time, but just got a new 2014 CCT (Black). Previous bike was a crotch rocket but my knees and wrists are more than happy with the change! Just wanted to say hello and thanks for all the valuable topics posted in these forums!

Welcome. The new type of bike will take a little time to use to after what you were riding...I know it did me, but I love it.

Aloha mate from a real old salt. I was stationed at the little radio station up above Whitmore Village, just north of Wahiawa back in the 1950s. Then transferred to a carrier to be one of the Flag's communicators. How does CVA14 sound to ya? Yup, she was a veteran of WWII and took Kamikaze hits.
Where're you stationed? Have a Loco Moco and think of me.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.

Hey "shipmate",

I was stationed at Pearl from 05-08, and remember riding those islands well.

Hawaii definitely prepares you for any traffic situation. I found Oahu traffic and road conditions to be far worse than anything I've experienced since.

That's why, when I visit there, I stay in Kailua and don't head out until the cube rats are in their holes. Ain't the H-3 a hoot when there's to traffic on it?

Welcome to the forums from another sailor.

Been Canadian Navy for over a decade now...only one and a half more decades to go!

Of course, I'd take Hawaii over Halifax any day!

Welcome! My time stationed at Pearl Harbor was 78-80. Traffic wasn't too bad yet except for rush hour. You should have a great time with your new ride there but even more fun when you get it back to the mainland where you can stretch its legs for a long haul ride.
