I have been away for a while.

Broken leg healed up and I moved to Hawaii. Yes I brought the TW with me. Put my three wheel limo(the Honda with sidecar into a konex box and saw that even with the DR650 and Ural sidecar, I would have room for the TW if I hung it from the ceiling. So I did. Then all my tools, well almost all, were stuffed in around the bikes and it was sent to the Big Island of Hawaii where i now live about 60 yards from the center of greater downtown metropolitan Hawi. see the photos




The first pic is the Konex box being loaded in Cape George outside of Port Townsend Wa.
The second is the geographical center of Hawi Hawaii.
The third is my new toy shop Frequented by chickens, mongooses(not mongeese}, and myself.
It is the home residence of My dependants, which are the three motorcycles, two of them have sidecars, and my tool for the care and medical attention of them.

I will post now just to see if all this works as planned

So now a few photos of Hawi Town.

This commercial high rise was built at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century as a bawdy house to serve the many field workers in the sugar cane fields. It is now a hotel and bar. It lies about 50 yards east of the sign in the middle of the city.

This second pic lies about 100 yards west of the sign and is the Famous Bamboo dining facility.

This gas station lies across the road from the sign to the south. Note the two HUGE banyan tree in the background.
They were probably saplings when King Kamehameha played here as a keiki. ( this is about 3 miles from his birthplace}

Keokea beach about 6 miles east of town, soon to become one of my favorite hangouts.

The straight near the top of the pass over the Kohala mountain road at about 3500 feet.
Kohala mountain road is an awesome motorcycle road. As it leaves Hawi it climbs quickly through ranch country , the road lined by graceful iron wood trees as it winds constantly up. When it tops out the scenery changes to open paniolo country with enough prickly pear cactus to satisfy any western movie fan. Then it winds down ito Waiemea, a cowboy town and the nearest place for supplies other than bread, milk, and mail. Waiemea lies beyound those Pu'us (cinder cones) in the distance

This last one is a piece of public beach untrammeled by tourists, near Kailua Kona.
Well now you have seen my new home, or at any rate, a few sketches of it. The poodle bike (TW), is currently serving as my primary exploration vehicle, scouting out new to me places befor I risk one of the sidecars rigs .
The forward panniers each contain a small gas can while the aluminum boxes carry the bulk of cargo.

Aloha Phelonius

Well, that sure is a unique way of moving a motorcycle. Kinda cool when you want and/or need or your stuff. Also, thanks for sharing a few pictures of your new home and landscape.

Thanks for sharing.
