Congratulations! Be safe, and have fun with it!
Looks like we're gonna have to create a Hawaii Threads Motorcycle Club.

And I've got the right sized "Bike"... for a Menehune that is.

I had filled up the tank with $2.83 worth of premium when the odometer read 60 miles.
I filled it up again today (took $2.80) and it read 155.

So that's ninety five miles on a approximately 1 gallon!

That's awesome. Maybe if Oahu just simply made some moped/scooter only lanes, traffic can be resolved. Btw, I wasn't aware that moped/scooters needed premium?

The shop strongly suggested premium. I dunno.
She runs nice though. Since it's illegal to drive over the Pali...

I went from our place on Date Street, through Kahala, past Hanauma Bay, Sandy Beach, Makapuu, and Waimanalo to reach Mom's house in Kailua, this morning. Only took me the hour and it was a Great ride! I did a few errands around Kailua for her and came back home the same way. She cruises nicely at 35, will cruise at 40 and even do 45 when I make it. Just over 80 miles round trip and I enjoyed it all the way. Woo Hoo!

hi this is sansei and in response to menehune man,i also own a moped and i have obeyed the traffic law's and i only go as the speed limit require's and not much more and my moped is stock and i own a sym moped and it's a nice color and i only go at the speed of 35 mph and not any faster and if their is traffic,i do wait and if they the city is fixing the road's,i wait in trafficgridlock and that's a true nightmare and it's true you cant go on the pali,i did it when i was young when i had a honda areo 50 the discontinued moped and that had a great power to go on only since by learing that that moped's engine could die anytime,i decided not to go over the pali anymore and a friend of mine in high school passed on when he had a accident with his moped and he passed on so i learned not to go over the speed limit so i thought to share this with everyone.

well thank's for your time

Red face Re: Menehune Man's New Ride!

hi,today i visited my friend's shop in kapahulu and i had my 6 month checkup so his mechanic shared with my friend who's the owner of his shop said i needed a new front tire so i said ok and then he said my moped need's a new back brake so on thursday,i'll visit him once again to put new back brake's in and it'll only cost me $60.00 so today i paid $121.00 for the checkup with the new front tire and stem where you'd put the cover on where you fill the air and now my moped goes at the speed limit and my moped work's well so i thought to share this with everyone.

well thank's for your time
