Bik­ers: Sad­dle Up, Ride ’Em Out

101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - TOURING -

Just be­cause you’re on the seat of a Har­ley doesn’t mean you’re ready to go ev­ery­where. Even the most sea­soned bik­ers need to plan their Big Is­land trips care­fully.

Think of the is­land as cir­cu­lar in shape with a few zigzag­ging con­nec­tor roads. There are two key high­ways (11 and 19), while Sad­dle Road (High­way 200) pro­vides the short­est route from Kailua-Kona to Hilo.

Hawai‘i Is­land of­fers great day trips. You’ll find the road­ways well-marked and sig­nage easy to fol­low.

Ki­lauea Vol­cano is a must-see and a unique drive. You can see snow on Mauna Kea and ex­pe­ri­ence 90-de­gree tem­per­a­tures on the Chain of Craters road all on the same day!

Parker Ranch is a great step back in time and a nice cruise up the coast. Ali‘i Drive in Kailua-Kona is the best place to cruise at night.
