What could be better than a Maui vacation and experiencing the beautiful island from the seat of a rented Harley, scooter, or classic sports car from Aloha Motorsports? Tremendous possibilities await you as you take the wheel and zip off to your chosen destinations around the island. You may choose to explore waterfalls along the road to Hana or snorkel the clear water coastline from Kihei to Lahaina. Cruise to Central Maui for a magical journey to the needle in the majestic Iao Valley or have a fine dining experience at a local establishment like Mama’s Fish House. Whatever you do, the journey will become more than a destination as you ride in style with Aloha Motorsports.-
When renting a motorcycle, motorbike or sports car on Maui look no further than Aloha Motorsports.-
After you do, a great activity is to zoom up to Kula which is about halfway up to Haleakala peak. Locals call the region of Kula “upcountry” and you’ll get some spectacular views of the coast and into the West Maui mountains. The word “Kula” means “open meadows” in Hawaiian, and the further up Haleakala highway you take your sweet ride the more the landscape opens up. As you pass through Lower Kula, you’ll see small farms and clusters of estates. Kula has long been a farming community, from sugarcane in the 1800’s to vegetables and tropical flowers more recently. Upper Kula’s cool temperatures will refresh you if it’s super hot down low and the winding roads through green pastures take you near silver eucalyptus tree groves (and Blue Jacaranda trees in late spring), contrasting with the bright green sugarcane below.
There are many stops along the way and you can easily enjoy a whole day up at higher elevation. You may take a walk through the lavender farm, head to a dairy where the goats “surf” or get some delicious food or java at Grandma’s Coffee House.
This will truly be a unique day where you can appreciate the spot where many year round Maui locals choose to live.
One of your Maui vacation highlights could very well be a motorcycle or motorbike rental from Aloha Motorsports.-
Here’s a little timeline of cultural appreciation to pique your interest:
The Art of Manliness describes the rise of motorbiking in 1960’s Europe like this: “The sleek Italian scooter rider — tight-fitting suit, sunglasses, shaggy hair — became the fashion icon for a burgeoning counter-cultural movement in Great Britain. By the 1960’s, the streets of English cities were streaming with ‘mods’ — disaffected youth decked out in Italian suits riding heavily customized scooters and brawling with motorcycle riders — ‘rockers.’”
While we don’t expect any brawls, rocking a sleek look on the scooter seems like a fun possibility.
Another way to prepare for your Maui vacation memories on two wheels is to do a google image search of scooter riders in India to glimpse the endless options for storage that are available with a scooter rental. You may not need (or be legally permitted) to carry cows or additional family members but other items such as a rack of bananas, golf clubs or boogie boards, might wedge in somewhere just fine.
Happy riding, no matter what look you decide to go for and what cargo you carry.
The only thing that will make your Maui vacation more of an adventure will be your choice of transportation. And what can evoke the nostalgia of the Hawaiian picture postcard past better than the classic Cobra sportscar. First of all, the sun, the ocean breeze, the ukulele serenade from the speakers blending with the scent of salt water and plumeria and the songs of tropical birds. I know. Just stop, you say. It’s like you’ve entered an Elvis or Gidget film already.
If you’ve driven a Cobra, you know the feeling. Freedom, power, and speed from the vehicle seem to enter the driver’s body as if by osmosis. And people can tell. Mad respect when people see the character you’ve chosen to embody on this trip to the islands.
You also know that hug turns, faster acceleration and unparalleled driving control will always make a Cobra car more superior to other “regular” cars.-
And, while admiring the ocean waves and fantastic views that Maui has to offer, we don’t blame you if you also want to sneak a peek back toward another gorgeous view: sleek lines, majestic curves, and that Cobra badge on the grille. Just a quick peek.
Aloha Motorsports has a new rental option for your Maui vacation. The Polaris Slingshot will make you feel like you are behind the wheel of your own Formula One car. It’s a three-wheeled quasi motorcycle race car hybrid, self-styled as low-slung, raw, and elemental. (Especially because you’ll be driving open to the elements.)
Slingshot’s lightweight design and 173 HP provide an impressive power-to-weight ratio. And from the front seats forward, it’s kind of as if you’re driving Mad Max’s Saturn Ion.
With all this excitement in the air, don’t forget to wear a helmet.-
If you’re seeking to start your adventure in Paradise with an adventure in driving, look no further. Maui sports car rentals have never been so exciting.
You already know you’d like to feel the wind as you glide effortlessly across open roads through emerald jungle, cliffside canyon coastline, and turquoise ocean stretching endlessly toward the setting sun.
Now, down to practicalities.
You probably know that fuel costs will be cut in half if you choose a bike or scooter rental on Maui over a car. But a scooter or a motorcycle rental? How does a prospective vacationer choose? Here are a few key points for consideration:
1. A scooter is smaller than a motorcycle. Do you want more steel underneath you, or a more lightweight ride? Smaller wheels make the scooters more nimble at low speeds.
2. Road workout, anyone? On a scooter, you will be seated. On a motorcyle, you will ride in a straddle position, working out the inner thighs a bit more.
3. Automatic transmissions are more common on scooters than on motorcycles. And with manual scooter transmissions, there is a hand shift rather than a foot pedal.-
You can’t really go wrong once you’ve done the hard work, which is choosing your vehicle. Paradise awaits.
Did you know that riding a motorcycle or motorbike actually makes you smarter? You probably already knew that bikers make better drivers (you don’t often see a biker checking Facebook on his iPhone), but the process of riding a bike actually increases cognitive function. Because you have to be fully alert to drive a motorcycle or motorbike, you are actually training your mind to use more overall brainpower.-
Maybe that’s why you see so many bikers paired up, riding two to a bike. Bikers are smart enough to know that a bike is often appealing to members of the opposite sex. And, studies have shown that women who ride motorcycles or motorbikes are happier in general than those who do not.
We happen to believe that the smartest people visit Maui, for obvious reasons having to do with complete beauty and enjoyment. So maybe the smartest of these rent motorbikes or motorcycles for their trip.
Motorbikes and motorcycles are the best way to explore the island of Maui. Why?-
1. They are small enough to park almost anywhere, saving the hassle of searching for parking. With extra time to spare, you can try one more new restaurant, or soak an extra hour of sun on the beach.
2. Gas prices are high on Maui. They just are. Motorcycles and motorbikes are more fuel efficient, getting you further for less.
3. Pickup. Enough said.
4. Traveling with a partner? You get lots of snuggle time on the open road as you ride together.
5. Finally, just as you do anywhere, you’ll meet fellow bike enthusiasts as you journey across the island, creating a wider bike community, and possibly some adventure buddies.
You don’t have to take an ocean voyage to see whales on Maui; you could rent a motorbike, motorcycle, or sports car, and see them breaching and playing from the road along Maui’s South and West shores. At Aloha Motorsports, we provide the wheels and you prepare for epic sights and adventures along the road at your own pace.-
Maui’s whale season is an unforgettable time to visit the island; you are sure to spot some of these magnificent creatures on a sunny day as they migrate with their babies toward Alaska. Take a swim, dive toward the sandy ocean bottom, and listen to their unique songs. Sometimes you can even hear the babies singing.
Then dry off, hop back on the bike or back into the car, and head on toward your next adventure.
Days are getting longer and dryer all over the island, which means one thing for motorbike and motorcycle renters on Maui: time to ride. It’s easy to want to jump on the back of a bike and get out onto the road when the impulse strikes, but experienced riders suggest a little pre-trip preparation. Taking this time to plan your motorbike or motorcycle trip around the island can pay off while in paradise.
1. Plan a lot of down-time in your day. You’ll benefit from not packing your itinerary too tightly with sights. Giving yourself some unplanned hours to enjoy the destinations will help you unwind and enjoy the island.
2. Pack lightly. Pack everything you think you will need for your motorcycle or motorbike tour. Then remove half. Feeling brave? Half that amount. Now you’re probably still well prepared for your trip, as long as you’ve kept in some rain gear and reef-safe sunscreen. There are laundromats all over the island, so if you need clean clothes, you’ll be covered.
3. Stop frequently. Get off the bike every 60 to 90 minutes. Walk, drink water, stretch. You’ll have more stamina to complete the trip and feel good.
Riding experts agree: a leisurely pace is best. If you don’t see everything on Maui by motorbike this time, never fear! You’ll just have to come back and book another trip with Aloha Motorsports to see and experience even more. Happy riding!-
