Not a big deal really. Just wear a helmet and nothing will ever happen to you. It is kind of like an Aura of Heavenly Protection if you have on on. Nothing can hurt you.

So, be careful out there!
If Hawaii is still like it was last time I was there then you gotta figure in tens of thousands of drunk and/or stoned tourists along with the general population of the usual cellphone addicted drones and makeup appliers.

thanks for the feedback... i planned on taking an msf class from the start but i think i'll wait on buying a bike. an msf class probably can help me decide what cc i'm ready for. maybe as a graduating gift i can get one, then go to europe for university and get my ass whooped there instead... oh god, the impending doom of the autobahn.. at least most people are aware of bikes there i'd think. hawaii is disappointing so far
