My wife and I were married here in 2007 and like many others, we fell in love with Kauai the moment we arrived. It is a beautiful and magical island and we felt like we were home and didn't want to leave. We would continue making return trips as often as possible, and with each trip it became harder and harder to leave. We received the news that we were pregnant in February of 2013. That was the final push we needed, so September 21st 2013 we made our dream come true and we moved from Atlanta, Georgia to Kauai full time. We brought our four dogs with us, and our daughter Riley was born on Kauai in November of 2013. We wanted a better life for ourselves and our daughter, and feel that Kauai is the best place to live and raise a child.
The culture and people of Kauai are amazing, and it truly is a loving and caring community. Locals call Kauai "country". That makes total sense after living here. Kauai has a laid-back , small town feel where everyone waves at each other and nobody is a stranger.
Riding a motorcycle truly is the best way to see, feel, and experience the island. Waimea Canyon is a must-see, and is a blast on a motorcycle. Filming with a go pro on the way back down always produces a great video to share with friends and family. Riding through the tree tunnel in Koloa is breathtaking and another great video spot. The east side of Kauai has many hidden mountain backroads with beautiful homes, pastures, mountains, waterfalls, and ocean views. There are a few great bypasses as you head north that offer beautiful views and give us a break from any traffic. The north shore is breathtaking and one of the most beautiful places on earth. Riding a motorcycle in the open air on the north shore creates a feeling you will never forget. It is impossible to describe in words, it is something you have to experience to understand.
I started riding motorcycles when I was 5 years old. I learned to ride a motorcycle before riding a bicycle. My father was an avid motorcycle rider and raced motocross for fun and decided to start me out young. He passed away when I was six, but his love for motorcycles carried on. I started off riding dirt bikes, but began riding street bikes as soon as I could get my license. Since my father passed away I also had to learn to maintain and care for my motorcycles on my own. I did have uncles to teach me the basics along the way, but a lot of my experience came from just taking them apart and putting them back together. They were, and still are fascinating machines to me. I enjoy that I can combine my love for motorcycles with my love for Kauai!
