More pics...

Then flew to Kauai, drove to Waimea Canyon...



The 550 is the canyon road for bikes!



Part of it has no lines on it!





Drive up from sea level to 4,000 ft.



Chickens everywhere!



Walked on a 4X4 only trail to a reservoir off the 550.



Trout is in there!



Hannapepe Swinging Bridge that was built in 1911!




A truck planter.



Monk Seal!



They are protected, a guy puts up signs to keep people at a distance.




A small brushfire by the hotel.




And I saw my cousins daughter Mika on KITV Island News!

The beach behind the Grand Hyatt.

Celebrating our 30th Anniversary, did a Luau, Food Tour, ATV ride, Helicopter ride, Palace Museum (the only Palace in the US)! Got to have dinner with my cousin and her family in Honolulu! Did a lot of walking, rode a Trolley and rented a car as well! Best 2 weeks ever!  :)

Nice pics, Eddie!  My wife and I got married on the beach in Kapaa 13 years ago.  We need to get back!  Next time you're there, rent a Harley, it's a great way to get some pics of those roadside waterfalls.  :7:

Yea saw some while driving and the helicopter ride in Kauai took us all around the island and saw a lot of waterfalls too! I took a bunch of pics, sorry I didn't post a bunch of them.

Hanzo said to rent a bike - but not familiar with the island roads I chose not to.

Great pics Eddie!  And congrats on 30 years!

Years ago I rented a Harley on Maui.  While waiting in line to get the bike, a lady in front of me exclaimed how lucky the counter-person was to be able to ride in Paradise year round.  The guy behind the counter replied "yeah, it's great for 2 days, then you run out of places to go."

^^^ Thanks and lol on riding around the islands!  :D

9-29-17 Rode to the Side Street Café to have breakfast with Tominator.



It was Kelly's (waitress) birthday!

Well I forgot my iPhone, had my camera but it needed to be charged and Tominator needed to get some stuff at home so we both left and told him to meet me at Togo's.



When I got home my bike finally turned to 100,000+ miles!  :)

More pics...



At Togo's in Seacliff Village in HB. We are going to watch the HB Airshow practice run before the weekend!



In HB, it is overcast hazy skies, we walked around the Pier then we went to find a spot for the Airshow!



A little excitement, a bee swarm in a trashcan!



A pretty painted dumpster!




The HB Police were out!



Lunchtime!



Tominator went home, I stayed around then left around 2-ish the haze was coming in from the ocean it was still there when I left.

While riding home I did see some jets flying around Los Alamitos, one did a couple of loops around the sky pretty sure they were for the Airshow!

Last year it was clear on Friday we saw some of it but I had to leave for work, overcast on Saturday and it rained on Sunday!

9-30-17 Well today it was overcast in BP, Decided to head to HB for lunch to see how the weather was for the HB Airshow...



I am a block from the beach and overcast is breaking up!



As we were eating lunch it cleared up and the HB Airshow is on!



Found a place to park, walked to the beach and watched the show! Ran into Tominator there!
