There's actually a place on Maui where you can rent groms and z125's. Motonosity did a video on it and they rented groms and went to Hana on them.
Yes! Grom on the road to Hana would be fun as well. Or up to Lahaina thru the back road back down to Kahului. Better yet, a perfect commuter all around Maui. I'll have to look into the rentals on my next stay there (my home away from home) \ooo/

Big island was up
Yep use to surf Honolii, Bay Front, Richardsons, Black Sand Beach, Banyons, and other spots on the Big Island before moving to San Jose. I use to go out with one of the Botello girls that lived in Honokaa and I worked at Parker Ranch one summer doing posting and fixing fences and starting up the water pumps to fill up the truff with water and grain for the cattle, and some of those hills in Waimea I use to ride/slide down the hill on cardboard when the grass was green and fresh.

Hint, you should have left the wale tail on the grom cause in the rainy weather that dirt and grim on the road will line the back of your shirt or jacket with wet crap. I ride in San Jose and the Bay area in the rain and the wale tail saves me from getting those shit lines.

what tire good for hilo side, i ride from pahoa everyday so alot a flat but still need to lean hard. plus get heavy rain sometimes......
No matter what tire you use esp in Hilo with the rain, it is better to use the Michelin Power Pure and 140/70-12 for the rear is ok and 120/70-12 for the fronts. For less cost try the Shinko 007 140/70-12 for the rear and 110/70-12 for the front is ok.

If you are riding from Pahua to Hilo and the cops allow you to ride on the side of the road in Heavy traffic I would get the Shinko mobber tires 130/70-12 rear and 120/70-12 front.

I have the Michelin on one of my groms and the Shinko 007 on the other grom.
