Thanks, everyone! Hawaii is magnificent. My cousin lives near Hilo and his backyard is a wonderful rainforest so we fall asleep to Couqui frogs and wake to birds calling.
I found a wonderful new friend who is selling his '82 R100 who let us take it for a test ride! So now we've ridden in our 50th state, been[paddling with my cousin's outrigger canoe team, have eaten wonderful food, and have an experienced guide to the rest of the Big Island.
Life is good even as a pedestrian!
sMiling 50 state rider!
