Hey just letting everyone know that I have the first Red rocket on Oahu. Upgrading from a 2003 SV650 and I can say that I love the torque already. A couple of things that I noticed:
1. Sits like a dirt bike with car rearview mirrors and the torque of an ICBM times infinity.
2. I think I have found my steed.
3. I am 40 years old and love naked street bikes.

Mahalo for reading.

eolith, they had planned a ferry but of course the "Greenies" and "locals" protested saying it would disrupt the whale migration routes. I do know the road you speak of now. On Oahu we have TANTALUS. Many a bikes have bitten the dust because of speed, runners, bicyclists, erratic drivers. Great shot of downtown.

Maui no ka oi
I have driven to Hana many times, taking an fz all the way around and back to upcountry would be a great trip. Also, driving around the west side of Maui is awesome. I rented a buell on vacation one time...and made the west side trek...woul have been better if I wasn't 2 up.

Pretty much every island there has killer roads for a bike like the fz
