On my recent Oahu trip, my friends and I decided that we should create a gang. A SCOOTER GANG! w00t w00t!
It was a ton of fun for everyone involved. While our skill levels varied from beginner to season motorcyclists, our group managed not to crash. There were a few close calls, but we definitely did better than I thought.
We rented our scooters from Hawaiian Style Rentals, which has awesome deals! Because it’s so much fun to scoot and because it was such a good deal, we ended up renting for two full days! Our newbies opted for the SYM DD50, this is a very capable two stroke scooter. We managed to get over large hills without too much trouble. Hawaiian Style also offers a sport version of theDD50. They informed us that this is a modified DD50, and it was a lot faster. Finally the most experienced riders got the Jet 50 EVO. This scooter pretty similar to the modified DD50 in speed, but because of the higher stance of the EVO, the handling characteristics were closer to that of a sport bike. You can enjoy a lower lean angle on the EVO which made it a lot of fun through the hills.
