I was on the island of Oahu visiting Pearl Harbor 2 months ago. I"d like to find the meathead that oversees the road maintenance in Hawaii. Without question, the lousiest roads of any state in the country. Which is odd as they don't have to deal with snow and ice there. Maybe you ought to look into some long travel suspension and some ultra skinny tires with extra tall sidewalls. At least that way, you won't lose all your fillings every time you dare exceed the posted speed limits.
I noticed when I was there that they grind the concrete on the expressways to smooth it out after construction. However, ya still bounce up and down as if you were on a pogo stick when traveling at normal expressway speeds. Here in the lower 48, concrete grinding is a common practice and produces some pretty good results. I can't help but wonder if the equipment they use in Hawaii would be more suited to parking lots than expressways?
Just my two cents worth: I certainly enjoyed Pearl Harbor, and the beaches were amazing, but what a shame to have the absolute worst roads in such a beautiful place.
