My wife and I visited the beautiful island of Maui for 15 days in November 2011.We rented a Harley softail from Eagle riders in Kihei and followed along the southern coast on Hwy 30,just enjoying the view and great weather stopping many times and taking pictures.But when we got to the north side and started following Hwy 340 it got very interesting,I was alittle nervous as I was riding a strange bike and hadnt rode with a buddy in 10 years or so but the bike felt great and my wife is a great passenger so we continued on Hwy 340 with its curves and switchbacks and few guard rails and some oncoming traffic we rode along the nothern coast and made it to the Hana Hwy and continued on till we hit half way to Hana and it started raining and since it was late turned around and rode back to Kihei.The next day we rode for a couple hours and enjoyed the Hawaiian beauty checked out the lava fields and the returned the bike.We put on about 250 miles before returning the Harley.I would recommend the western ride along hwy 30/340 its the Island version of the Dragons Tail.Ive put on around 500,000 miles on motorcycles and have riden many different rodes but this is by far the best in beauty and challenge.We plan to return to the Island very soon and do the ride again.
