Well, I was going to stay in San Diego, but the plans fell through when I kinda hurt my leg, then I was going to move to Florida with my brother, but the Navy says they 'Have no money' to move me to the East coast even though I would've moved everthing myself. Now I have a few options, Washinton state, I like Washington a lot, nice place, Hawaii, nice place to visit, but I really don't know if I'd want to live there. My hometown, tempting. Or try to stay in this expensive frikkin town of San Diego, which I really don't want to do.

Dude, if they'll move you to Hawaii go. You'll be at the beach everyday looking at hot women. On the big island there are plenty of guys that ride. There is one guy on Rogue from there, you should try to find him. His name is something like RCHawaii. Washington isn't bad either, Bremberton?

Not sure where yet in Washington, probably around Whidbey Island, if it was Hawaii it would be Oahu.

ND4SPDSHO : Carolina's.  Where you gonna go on vacation if you move to Hawaii?
Can't go East coast or I'd go to Florida. I guess I'd go somewhere boring for vacation if I lived in Hawaii.

Grew up in Ohio, have been in Tucson for 29 years. My girlfriend and I are now thinking about moving to southern Idaho. Washington is a beautiful state, but be prepared for lottttts of rain and cloudy days.

If I had a choice of all the places you mentioned? Stay where you are. You are going to miss San Diego if you leave. What is wrong with it? Great weather, roads, ect.

I would not suggest Hawaii. You will get tired of it fast. Oahu has no good roads to ride. Well the roads might be fun but there are always cars on them. Cant do speed unless you are crazy.

Guys from Oahu go/ship there bikes to the Big Island once a year to ride the roads there. They also usually go home with 2-3 bikes less then they came with. I'm from the Big Island. There are a lot of motorcycle riders but most ride Harleys. There are a few Great roads on the Big Island but it also rains a lot.

If I could live anywhere it would be San Diego, but you have to have mad coin to be able to afford a good lifestyle there. Thus, I live in the armpit of the world: Cleveland.

I would do WA state dude. Mountians and no extremes in temp (unless you change elevation).

WTF? They'll send you to Hawaii but not Florida? What's up man, are you ETSing, PCSing?

The only thing you'd NOT like about Washington is the weather. Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain, cloudy, sprinkles, sprinkles, rain, clear for an hour, more rain, rain ... it's a vicious cycle. Lived in the Pacific Northwest for 10 years, summer lasts about 2 months. One plus though, at least you wouldn't get too terribly hot in full leathers . It is a beautiful place though, and a lot friendlier than California. Gunshots, fire bombs, rioting, and such are far less common up there ... well maybe not gunshots, but up there you can safely assume they're target practicing and not sending stray rounds in your direction. I think you'd like Wash. but you'd get itchy to ride ... ALOT. Good luck with whatever you decide ... no matter where you go it'll take some getting used to.

Kinda curious, your last deployment you were buying chit left and right ... anything this time around? What've you done to the Piggy-One?

Don't forget to bring yer [email protected] up here when you get home.

I probably would've bought some cool stuff this time, but we went nowhere. We stopped in Bahrain twice for a total of 7 days, until now, I've had a total of 3 days off in 5 1/2 months . The 51 didn't get much...since there really isn't that much left I can do to it, I got a 2-1 Jardine and a set of stock wheels for spares, that's about it.

I'd probably opt for WA state also...but be prepared to be in a shi**y mood all time with the rain and cloudy days.... ....there should be some good roads there though if that's any consolation....

Hawaii would be my choice. But you have to keep one thing in mind. Unless your banking a hefty paycheck, you'll live in poverty. You won't have to worry whether or not the roads there are good cause you won't be able to afford the gas. Everything is expensive there. EVERYTHING! But then again, I hear California isn't exactly cheap either.

There are lots of toursist, the only high speed roads are highways, and you'll pay double for just about everything ... but they don't call it paradise for nothing. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
