Electra Glide, Breakout, Heritage Softtail Classic or Street Glide. What’s your choice? This is the stable of Harleys or “hogs” we have for rent here at Aloha Motorsports in Kihei or Lahaina. The Harley Davidson name is synonymous with a sense of historical cool not found in other motorcycles. They are so legendary that even the late Evel Kneivel set his most famous jumps and stunts on a Harley Davidson XR-750.
Now, be aware that altogether Evel broke 35 to 40 bones during his career so we don’t want you to be jumping Haleakala Crater on one of our rental Harleys, but you’ll be riding a solid piece of machinery with the most famous name in the motorcycle industry for a very long time. Come by or contact us here at Aloha Motorsports, rent one of our motorcycles and see why Harley Davidson came up with the slogan, “Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out the window.”-
How can you make your Maui memories extra special? By renting a scooter, motorcycle or sports car from us at Aloha Motorsports. Isn’t life about creating lasting memories with family, friends or loved ones? These memories start with your ride. Sure, you can go do what most do when they visit, and go to the basic car rental company and get a car that looks just like everyone else. Take it from a local, you stick out like a sore thumb! Or, you can really create memories and step out of the box – by renting our Cobra sports car! Imagine the top down, rumble under your feet, and wind in your hair.
Want to try something really different? Rent our Slingshot. All of our rentals handle well and more importantly, they are fun! When you combine all of these ingredients, they usually produce memories that you will never forget… and isn’t that what vacations are for?!-
Honolua Bay, Nakalele Blowhole, Olivine Pools, Honokohau Valley and Kahakuloa. What do all these locations have in common? They are all beautiful destinations located in Northwest Maui.
You can rent a scooter from us at Aloha Motorsports in Lahaina and explore these areas quite easily on one of our bikes, just stay on Highway 30 past Kapalua in West Maui. I like to call this ride the “Mini-Hana” because one doesn’t need to venture all the way out to Hana on our Eastside to experience rural, green, lush beauty. You can do this ride in one third of the time and with more fun! There are also wide shoulders perfectly safe for you to ride on and it might cost you 2 dollars in gas total.
Many people call this ride the highlight of their Maui trip and you’ll see why. Oh, and don’t forget to stop and get some famous Banana Bread on the way!-
Besides Harley Davidson’s legendary and iconic reputation, there are other reasons you should rent a Harley from Aloha Motorsports in Kihei or Lahaina on your trip to Maui.
One reason is they are stable. Anyone who’s done some road touring knows how badly light bikes can beat you up or get blown around on the road and you should know Maui has plenty of wind. This weight imposes a performance penalty in terms of how fast they hustle, but what they lack in athleticism is gained in their stable maneuverability. Your hog won’t win you a Superbike race, but it ain’t bad for cruising the island in true style and safety.
Riding a Harley also allows you to rid your mind of stresses. A lot of people have a “happy place” and for many that’s on a Harley. You tend to forget the mundane things that stress you on a regular basis like work, a fight with your spouse, the bills that are due or that conflict at work. On a Harley these issues just get blown away in the wind leaving you lighter and ready for a new Maui adventure. You came to Maui to be stress-free didn’t you?-
Humu-humu-nuku-nuku-a-pu’a’a. You may have seen this Hawaiian word on tourist shirts, hats and if you’re lucky enough, in the water. It’s the name of the official Hawaiian State fish and this tongue twister translates to, “triggerfish with a nose like a pig.” It’s a pugnacious little fish often seen in the shallows over a coral reef, where it finds protection and food. If you don’t know what to look for just search for the fish with blue lipstick! How do you see this fish? By looking! But, first you got to get there and there’s no better way to cruise to the beach in style than by renting a motorcycle or scooter from Aloha Motorsports. Put that snorkel set in your backpack, grab some reef friendly sunscreen or lycra cover up shirt and off you go! When you get there, it’s easy to find parking on a motorbike. Lay out that towel, spit in that mask and go look for the Humu-humu-nuku-nuku-a-pu’a’a or any of our other 455 Hawaiian reef fish.
You might have a hard time saying the name but it’s easy to find in the ocean.-
You don’t have to look at statistics to know that most people who visit Maui rent a car.-
Here at Aloha Motorsports we dare you to be different. Come rent a scooter or motorcycle with us and step out of the box. Dance your own hula, eat your pineapple on a stick, mix-up 8 flavors of shave ice syrup because that’s how you roll. Now, whether you test the norms with regularity, or just on occasion, we guarantee that rolling with us will be one of the most memorable, and different, activities you do here in Maui. Come on, we dare ya!
Here in Maui we have a saying, “Only a Surfer Knows the Feeling.” Well it’s the same if you rent a motorcycle or scooter from Aloha Motorsports. If you have had experience riding one than you know what I’m talking about. When you take yourself out of the “bubble” of a car it’s a whole new world. In Maui, the aromatic tropical air hits you and arouses your senses. You will be amazed at how much more you actually “see” and experience when you take off the walls confining you. And let’s face it, don’t we all love Maui for these amazing, up close experiences??!
We invite to indulge in this experience by renting a motorcycle or scooter from Aloha Motorsports. Come “feel” that feeling.-
We may not have the drastic change of seasons here in Maui as you do back home but summer is a special time here in Maui. Maui summer weather stays in a constant low to mid 80’s with the ocean temperature almost the same. Rain is pretty much non-existent and the different hues of clear, blue water and swaying palms of the outdoors beckon. To take it all in there really is no better way, or day, to enjoy the tropical vibes of summer than by renting a motorcycle or scooter from Aloha Motorsports.
So, get up, get out and seize our endless summer on one of our motorbikes, no AC necessary!-
Pele in the News-
You might be buried under a lava rock if you haven’t heard about the recent increase in activity from the Pu’u ‘O’o Vent of Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island. Following a recent earthquake, many additional fissures have opened and Pele, the Hawaiian Goddess of Fire, is really showing her strength. The truth is the Pu’u ‘O’o vent has been active and spewing magma since 1983 and Kilauea Volcano has been one of the most active volcanoes on earth since then. But not to worry here in Maui. Our famous volcano, Haleakala, is still sleeping. Maui and Aloha Motorsports are opened for business! Haleakala or “House of the Sun,” is considered a “dormant” volcano even though it erupted around 250 years ago. It’s a fantastic place to take one of our rental scooters or motorcycles for a ride up the longest, steepest paved road on the planet. The views are insane and once you get to the top you can hike into the crater and feel like you are on the moon. As you ascend to the peak, wind hitting your face, you can imagine what it was like a few hundred years ago and be thankful that you are not vacationing on the Big Island this year!
