9 fun things in Honolulu: Seattle Times food writer finds old favorites and new

“Take a bike ride around Diamond Head: Known to Hawaiians as Le`ahi, Diamond Head is the unreal-looking dormant volcano towering at the end of Waikiki in every photo you’ve ever seen of the place. The bike ride to and around it from friendly Hawaiian Style Rentals on Lemon Road is easy enough for even the laziest rider (and I would know). Along the way, there’s pretty Queen Kapi`olani Regional Park (watch for prehistoric-looking banyan trees), the stately seaside War Memorial, stoic Diamond Head Lighthouse, vastly blue ocean views, hilariously solemn groups on Segway tours, surfers and more. For the (slightly) ambitious, there’s an extra leg out to Kahala and/or the 170-step stairs to the crater’s top partway around. (Hawaiian Style Rentals & Sales, 2556 Lemon Road, Honolulu; 866-916-6733;; bike rentals, $15 for four hours)”

Operation Bikes for Tikes is a local program created by HSRS with the mission of granting a complimentary bicycle to a lucky keiki.

Century Ride

Tomorrow is Honolulu’s Century Ride. Since it is not a race a lot of normal folks will be participating and taking it at there own pace. The race starts at 6 a.m. and takes you along the eastern Honolulu coast up to the Windward side. The course will be well marked and  a full lane will be coned off for the riders. Good luck to all participants. Have fun! Thank you to Hawaiian Bicycle League for the information on the Century Ride.

Rent to Own

Ride it before you buy it! Hawaiian Style Rentals is proud to offer its own Rent to Own program. One hundred percent of the rental fee will go toward the purchase of your moped. Hawaiian Style Rentals Rent to Own program is a great alternative form of financing that allows you to test your ride before you fully invest in it. It skips all “approval” processes required for financing. All you need is a valid drivers license and a valid credit card and you are on your way to owning your own moped. All details can be be found on our Rent to Own page on

Another Hawaiian Style BBQ

Yesterday was the first friday of the month and Hawaiian Style Rentals had another Hawaiian Style BBQ. This time our sous-chef friend Avin prepared and grilled the carne asada while Martina cooked the traditional Mexican rice. We rationed the food as well as could and came out with thirty plates. I wish we had bought more food, because some people didn’t get to eat:-( Next month we are preparing traditional grilled burgers and french fries! I put up a few photos on Mahalo to the Waikiki Beachside Hostel for allowing us to have this BBQ! There was no cruise this time, because we didn’t have enough bikes. Maybe next month!

2008 SYM DD50

Please note, SYM discontinued producing the DD50 in 2015. We now proudly carry Genuine Scooters. Please visit our sales site to see our available inventory. Mahalo! If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. The 2008 SYM DD50 has landed and like 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004 it looks exactly the same! People may be turned off by the lack of new design for the SYM, but for Hawaii Moped it is a consoling feeling! We know there will always be parts and it allows us to maintain them better, because we are so familar with the model. A lot of customers have been inquiring about purchasing a SYM and it seems like every one is looking for the best used bike at the lowest rate. The bottom line for the SYM DD50 is $900. Which means that when you buy a scooter from us you can sell it for what you bought it for. This is another reason why we love the same design, because your used moped will always have the same look as the new models. With the weak dollar raising our gas prices there is no better time to check out one of our new or used SYM DD50 mopeds.
